January 2010

January zine
January 1 sort of snuck up on me, and I hadn't really thought about the zine until today. Since I want to get this uploaded today and go to bed soon, it's a little slap-dash and short. These things happen.

New Friends
Picked up two half price ornaments at Crate and Barrel. So cute! A squirrel and a bear. Made out of buri . Maybe I'll do a portrait of them.

Fancy Pens
My fancy Rapidograph pens are broken. More accurately, the ink in them has dried and they're all clogged up. Sigh.

Story I'm too lazy to illustrate......
Scene: Christmas Eve party at my Aunt's house. Alex and I are sitting on the couch.
Alex - My cousin's little kid...he's two and half, we see each other maybe twice a year.

David (Alex's uncle): Alex, come sit next to me!
Alex: No. I want to stay here next to.....(turns to me and it's clear that he has no idea what my name is)
Me: My name is Queen.
Alex: Queen!

The Blind Side - Pretty Good
Up in the Air - Really Good
The Professional - Really Good (Yes, an old movie)
Aliens vs. Monsters - Not that good
The Proposal - Pretty doesn't aim high, doesn't hit high
Zach & Miri Make a Porno - Good enough, not great
Adventureland -Pretty Good
