Turn It Up

So we all are a bit strange.

But we are not alone.

Today’s tale in strange is not about me it’s about my dear friend Jimmy.

And to celebrate the fact that he had a new job, I decided to share one of his secrets:

It’s a song that not even I listen to. And I listen to all the cheesy tunes.

For those of you who want to know more about this:

Personally when I’m cleaning I would prefer to listen to a hip song like “Let’s here it for the boy” by Deniece Williams.

Congratulations on your new job Jimmy and your cleaning song.

Mystery Wares

Sometimes your life can be like a fairytale, or sometimes it’s more like weird mystery show that Elvira hosts.

Well this week I was left responsible for cleaning out the fridge… and it felt like I was a character in the latter.

I was in the homestretch of cleaning out that sucker when I came to one particular item.

A simple innocuous tupperware.

Now it had been so long since I have seen this tupperware. I questioned what was inside it…

But it had been so lone since I’ve seen that tupperware like I previously stated it was too afraid.

Minutes after staring and swizzzling this little creature around,

I opened it.

And inside was really old olives.

And it wasn’t very scary after all.

That’s the whole story.

Happy Birthday Nancy!

Yesterday was one of the best days in the whole history of things that happen.

It was Nancy’s Birthday!

Yes you may know Nancy from being a doodle in the bar on the right side of the screen, or being deliciously described on my about page. But she’s so much more! She’s my giggling companion, listens to all my silliness, and can make a great meal… but maybe not a cupcake :)

But I must apologize for my tardy drawing. But quite candidly I didn’t get the drawing up  because well, I was too tired from work to get it colored… and well it needed to be colored!

So without further ado:

I almost sorry to tell you that I was inspired by Pocahontas… and if they monitor the internet at my work (which I know they do). They are going to be who is this girl who google searches elevators, what they are serving for lunch, and pocahontas? Who could be that fascinating? Well that  person would be me.

And why is Nancy in a kayak?

In my defense you invited me to kayak next week.

So all I could think of is you and kayaks…

Happy Birthday Nancy!

Have the best year ever!

Cinco de Mayo

Today on this glorious Cinco de Mayo I want to share a simple story.

My new work is amazing and offered delicious churros today. I being a churro enthusiast took full advantage of this. I may be exaggerating but I literally think all I ate was churros today. My coworker said I had the energy and enthusiasm of a chipper squirrel.

I think that is a good thing.

Anyways Happy 5th of May!

 

Also did you know that it’s Oyster day? I mean while you are throwing back some margaritas and Coronas you might as well throw some oysters your way too!

I’m going to recover from my sugar high now….

p.s.

sugar high induced second doodle about how I imagine Jimmy Cinco de Mayo’s

Happy Birthday to Tony 2014

Today is my brother’s birthday and he’s very far away from me in actual miles.

So you know that there will be doodles.

I was supposed to send him something…. but I just can’t remember what it was

Was it a:

No… I don’t really see you wearing a tote in the arctic…

How about a:

But I don’t see how you could use a vote… I mean you’re not running for office. And I don’t think you have entered the Voice this year.

How about a:

It seems fun, but it could be dangerous…

How about a:

You could use it… But I don’t have the cash for that right now… give me a week or a few years.

I know what I’m supposed to send you!!!! I think it was a:

No, that seems like more work than the kiddos.

How about a:

That’s not quite right…

It should be more like this:

 

I hope you have the best birthday with the girls! I hope it’s fun and magical… and full of good eats and treats.

In fact let’s toast to it!

Look on the Rainbow Brite side of Life

I wanted to thank all of you who voted for Veronica and my kitty creation. We made it to the top 25 of the competition out of 198.

We consider this a victory.

And I consider it like a “Silver Lining’s Playlist” kind of victory! Like I was jumping around the house looking like this:

I basically told everyone I know I was a very successful non-winner. (Courtesy of: Tumblr)

It was our first try after all and to get that far just seemed like a dream. So seriously, thanks for even reading the blog!

 

And now on to a doodle… today is kinda grey here and well I’m feeling like such a winner it’s can’t even stop the sunbeams from following me.

So I made this to express my feelings about how happy I am:

Just rainbow it!

 

I hope that your day is a little magical. Because I’m still jumping up and down here.

What am I doing?

The answer is drawing cats and constellations. I am currently working on a project with a lovely friend who is a wonderful artist herself.

Soon I will have a whole picture to this until then enjoy this rough draft I sent her to make her laugh:

Meow astrology cats to come!
