Tanqueray and Leeks (5-3, 3/3/09)

>> Thursday, March 5, 2009

Michael invited me to lunch on Tuesday, knowing I was having a bad morning -- and he offered me his jacket when I forgot mine. :)

Samantha tried to sing Puff the Magic Dragon in the car (which was just plain cute), and then she told me she wants to make me happy.

This picture from Elizabeth. I especially like our matching mini-dresses (mine is bordering on obscene...) and how we're hugging each other and looking lovingly into each others' eyes. I'm not sure why I have blonde hair, though -- wishful thinking on her part?

My friend/coworker spoke up for me when another coworker bombarded me with a work request right as I walked in the door. "Hey, why don't you give her a chance to take her coat off?" she interjected from her adjacent cubicle. Classy.

This other picture from Elizabeth. Apparently she decided to grade her school paper, herself. It took me a while before I noticed that "Great Job" was misspelled (sometimes I'm kind of slow).

6 (bonus!)
At the beginning of painting class, we place our current assignments along the wall to critique them. Last night we critiqued our still life paintings, and one student created a very nice painting of leeks and a bottle of Tanqueray. When the teacher asked the class what's wrong with the painting (how might it be improved), one classmate responded, "Tanqueray doesn't go well with leeks." Hiyo!


Here's my assignment for the week. (I may finesse the wine bottle a bit more, but otherwise I'm very happy with it.):
