11/28/2006: "I'm still here..."
After receiving *several* emails chiding me for not updating this more, I’ve been guilted into writing.
The thing is, I haven’t been doing a lot of new art work lately; I do have some drawings from last week’s life model that I could post, but other than that I’ve been preoccupied with a personal matter…a classic story really:
Boy meets girl, girl dumps boy (under false pretenses), girl begs boy to take her back, boy refuses, then boy and girl are miserable until boy finally relents and takes girl back.
So, that about catches us up I think. And for those of you who haven’t guessed, boy = aaron. I don’t want to write about him too much as he’s more private than I am. I will say that I'm in unfamiliar territory and it's taking awhile to find my stride; I know I'll find it though.
In other news, I've been up to lots of fun stuff in general. Brian, Aaron and I went and saw Jesus Camp, which was excellent except that it sent me into several flash backs to my own Catholic/evangelical childhood (you heard that right)!
Rob came over Sunday at 6:45am to watch the Manchester United v Chelsea game. That was fun (early but fun). Ended in a tie but had some exciting bits and I'm learning more about how soccer is played.
Sunday afternoon Aaron cleaned my kitchen (not a euphemism). It's spotless now and I've vowed to keep it that way hence forth! With my clean empty sinks my next attempt is to clean 5 1/2 years worth of dirty oil paint brushes.
Oh, and Thanksgiving was great too. I went to Maren's for brandy ice, and to another friend's house for the Big Meal (also very nice)...btw, Maren and I went for another absolutely gorgeous nighttime ski. She thought my description of our first moonlit ski was “too romantic” though so, for the record, she and I are *not* lovers.
We do plan to go again Thursday night, as there are rumors that the rain is going to return this weekend. It has been cold here, but clear and snow covered and beautiful. I prefer that to warm and rainy any day.
Anyway, I'm off now to go have dinner at Aaron's (yes he's cooking for me too)...how did I get so lucky?
