11/06/2006: "Dear Diary..."
Well, I ended up having a fun and relaxing weekend. Saturday I went to my good friend Jen's baby shower and had tea and crumpits and ooohed and aaahhed over tiny furry baby things. I was less enthused by the graphic walks down memory lane all the moms started recounting regarding the actual birthing process, but I think it was helpful for Jen and that's the important thing.
Sat. night my friend Aaron and I went out for dinner and listened to my former guitar instructor and a bassist play jazz. They sounded great! Afterwards, we went to moving party thrown by some of Aaron's friends where they were giving away everything they couldn't take with them to Whitehorse (Yukon Territory). It was fun and I met some great people.
Sunday afternoon I went to the first Sunday life drawing session at the Ruby Room. There were only a couple of people which was kind of nice. It was easier to move around to find the best poses etc. The following are some of the drawings I did. I see oodles of problems with them but for relatively short poses, I think they turned out loads better than the ones I did last week. I still struggle with the hands and feet!
Last night I went and saw "The Departed". UCK! It got great reviews but it was so violent (not in a good clean zombie kind of way either) and depressing and I wish I hadn't seen it. When I got home Rod called and we stayed up into the wee hours talking. He told me about his trip to Ohio where he met Dave Chappel! (so jealous).
Today it's snowing and there are strong winds and I'm working from home though I also have to go in and work the night shift at the library which stinks because I'm feeling warm and cosy. Time to put the tracker into 4-wheel drive. Winter is officially here! Wheeeeeeeeeeee!
Oh yes, and if you're in Juneau there's a showing tonight of Iraq for Sale at the UAS Egan Lecture Hall at 8. It's supposedly very eye opening!
