Happy Birthday Lincoln!

Today is a great day in history. Abraham FREAKING Lincoln’s birthday!

Also I have to make a post about this because my friend Jimmy is Practically Lincoln’s Sweet Valley twin. And they are both even February babies… so I am now totally convinced of my findings!

I have made a doodle of my proof:


Have a Great rest of the weekend people!


Congratulations Everyone! It’s Jimmy’s Birthday

Today I measured a warehouse with the most professional of measuring buddies. And I told him today’s most precious news.

It’s my friend Jimmy’s birthday.

Yes, magical Jimmy! I call him this because not  many people in the world would let you incessantly take pictures of them for 5 years straight, and rarely complain… well sometimes he did, but I took pictures anyway.

Basically, I've been capturing all the exciting moments since 2003

Well today Jimmy turns 27. Which makes me realize several things:

-I’ve known Jimmy for 9 years this August, and I have no ideas where the years have gone.

-I wish he’d become an Abraham Lincoln Impersonator… because he is tall, skinny and has brown hair (in my mind that makes you Abraham Lincoln)

-When are we going to go rummage through more thanksgiving postcards?

-I wonder if you are going to watch Carrie to celebrate your birthday, because if so I’m in.

-Will young James ever become a professional clog dancer? Or ever take a clogging class (I’m betting no)

-I wish that you would sing karaoke versions of Dolly Parton songs with me I would like to sing 9 to 5, thanks.

-Will you ever become the Where’s Waldo of Santa Barbara?


Okay I know that those are really strange observations… but I reserve only the best for Jimmy. And’ here’s the corresponding doodle:


p.s. If you like any of the things mentioned in this blog… like Waldo, Santa Barbara, Thanksgiving Postcards, Halloween movies and being weird… you should totally find Jimmy he likes those kinds of things


Happy Birthday Jimmy!


Dirty Trailer

Some people are very lucky to work in pristine, if not just slightly too Dijon colored offices. Others spend their days in an office that has the delicious smell of food mixtures, and then there is Jimmy:

Jimmy works in dirt. Dirt that is located in sunny destination hotspot, Pacoima. The next time you are there give him a wave. He’ll be the tall skinny one reciting lines from Carrie… he’s hard to miss.


Surprise Jimmy!

I have no idea why I doodled Jimmy as one of the toys that scared me the most as a child, but here we are with Jimmy as a jack in the box.

And I want you to know that I always store test myself to see if I am still afraid of them. The answer is yes, because I don’t like jumping-out-of-box surprises.

Bonus: What buildings are on the box? I bet Jimmy knows instantly!


Jimmy’s wishful thinking

There are some days when you just want to get away. Some people suffer from these days more than others for so many reasons.

Sometimes people take days off of work and have fun. Jimmy is doing that tomorrow, and I will be trying to figure out what color a weird-faux-spanish-style-previously-a-Big-Lots building should be.

I just can’t figure out a correct color scheme for it…. URG. I digress.

Here’s a doodle of Jimmy:

I tried to find where Jimmy is working. But, I just settled for a house in Pacoima

Best part, tomorrow… he gets to go there. Have fun Jimmy!
