Dia Del Dab 2015

9 Apr

So I have been in the center of a lot of changes recently.

And I am really behind on even mentioning birthdays, or anything of that nature! I will totally make that up some other time, probably with my award winning Paul Simon impersonation…

But today is an exciting day!!! It’s a birthday of one of my favorite people of all times….

DAB!

Although at this point I haven’t worked with him in over a year, I think he’s a magical creature. It was always claimed at my first job that I played favorites… and that my favorite person in the office was Dab.

And now that I don’t work there… Duh! I mean anyone could tell that he was totally my favorite.

Quite simply in my book, Dab always wins. He can win any game, any argument (unless it’s with me), and even extra food that I don’t feel like eating. Dab… wins it all!

And to celebrate the shear spiciness of my friend of the last 8 years, I give you this simple doodle:

Happy Birthday! I hope your year is magical.

And yes… the doodle is too cutesy, but as you know cutesy is just my style :)

Hooray for Hollywood

7 Apr

I’m sorry there have been no posts as of late

I got a job in Hollywood. Which sounds very exciting… but really just means I have a lot of traffic to deal with.

And to be quite candid my life seems a little upside down. And I have to figure it all out very quickly… Because that’s what grown ups do.

I hope everything is going okay with all the people out there.

I am trying to tie up all my loose ends at work before I start a new job and new adventure. This little doodle came from my day planner which is also used to draw in :)

Not Very Interesting, But True Confessions

18 Feb

Based on a true story of a boring drive home, made more interesting by a man who decided to wear a mustard colored shirt and glasses that scream “Battlestar Galactica.”

He did not drive a burgundy firebird though. And I’m sure he probably doesn’t sell paper as well as Dwight either…

I wonder what Dwight Schrute would be doing right now, if he was real?

I Walk the line

9 Feb

Work is a very boring place.

It just is. Actually, it really depends on who is there with you to make it a great experience. But they can’t be with you all the times…

When I’m at my desk for example I really have no one to chat with. So, I am prone to daydream ,and sometimes I carry that to other places in the office.

Namely, the restroom.

Now I’m going to refrain from 97% of the gross things and stories I can tell you about our restroom.

But one of  the best features of our lavatory situation is that… the toilets don’t flush.

They just don’t.

You have to wait and flush the toilet 2-3 times to make sure that all your business is history. (And honestly, most people don’t)

So you have a lot of time to decide what you want to do…

I know people fix their hair, write a few texts…

But not me… I daydream.

Sometimes I practice bellydance arms. Sometimes I count the tiles.

Sometimes I pretend the grout lines are a tightrope to walk on.

And boy oh boy, do you have the time to perfect your balance in there.

Happy Monday!

Move over Queen “B” here’s Queen “E”

6 Feb

My friend Elisa has a really great imagination…

Not like my weird imagination which makes a really boring office into a musical in my head. (which is sometimes how I get through my day)

But she can replicate and create beautiful costumes from her head.

And then she tells me about them and I sketch them and help her visualize all her costume dreams.

This is her dream of being a queen that rivals even Beyonce.

I hope she makes it and wears it all the time.

Queen Elisa at Halloween.

Queen Elisa at the Red Lobster.

Queen Elisa at Friday meetings.

Thanks for giving me things to draw other than my stuck at my desk related despair.

Also Hi Joseph, who is secretly reading this at work. My back still hurts, and I want ice cream.

Party Like A Jimmy

2 Feb

This is a birthday shout out to everyone’s favorite fan of Santa Barbara!

It’s Jimmy’s *ahem* *ahem* 30th *cough* *cough* birthday!*

And in the spirit of making fun lists

Here’s 10 fun facts about the birthday boy:

1. Jimmy is afraid of the internet… and is one of 4 people I know who doesn’t have a Facebook or a Linkedin… or even a myspace.

2. Jimmy used to collect postcards… I imagine he has enough to cover the walls of the Grand Canyon.

3. Jimmy is the owner of 3 weenie dogs… but doesn’t like Hot Dog on a Stick.

4. He is the only guy I know who knows the words to “Waterloo” by Abba

5.He is like an encyclopedia of California style Spanish Colonial style homes… which actually comes in handier than you think it would.

6.Jimmy used to be the tallest guy I knew… but now I work with someone who is 6′-9″

7. Jimmy doesn’t like seafood… but he will watch “the Little Mermaid” with you.

8. He’s one of the only people  (besides me) who likes the movie “Bachelorette” better than “Bridesmaids”. It’s a great movie, btw.

9. Jimmy has more sweaters than I do… I think he has 305** to be exact.

10. He also makes fun art… and you can see it here!

Happy Birthday Jimmy

♥Lauren

*his birthday is actually on the 1st… but I was being wooed by pizza, chicken wings, and Lenny Kravitz.

**I exaggerated he only has 285
