Jack-O-Lantern Weather

A year has passed since the last time I took a knife to a pumpkin. It hardly seems like it was a week ago. I didn't really have any brilliant ideas pop in my head. But this is what I came up with...

Old Costumes

Making costumes is so much fun. I haven't really "made" one in quite a while. Of course, the two I really enjoyed making (Strider and the Moonraker costumes), I don't really have any photos of. Here are some of the photos I do have.

Like a cast shadow

Hearing the Faint play live was even better than I remembered.

Sunset Strip

The past 5 or so weekends have been incredible. I went to a yoga class Saturday morning. It was a bit of a struggle for me. But it was worth the great feeling I had all day throughout my entire body. We also got to check out a Hipster Indoor Yard Sale which was a lot of fun. Below is a photostrip of Sarah and I watching the sunset. It wasn't actually as amusing as our reactions in the photos may lead one to believe.

The Out of Towner

This past month I've been out of town almost every weekend. I don't remember spending so much time at my parents' house in years. It's been soooo worth it though. I've also noticed what a rut I had been in. I feel like my weekends were spent just killing time between the working weeks. Lately, I have felt like I control my weekends and I've been making the most out of them. And now the work week flies by and I live in full anticipation of the next weekend.

Jury Duty

So, I'll admit I wasn't happy when I was summoned to go to jury duty. I have gone once before and was disappointed at how over-theatrical the whole process was. Not that it was the courts fault. It was just the people involved in the case, including the lawyers. I really felt like it had been a waste of my time. I think I'd be a great juror. I pay attention to details, I am good at figuring things out, and I think I am very fair. I felt like the fiasco I had witnessed was a waste of my time.

I was worried today that it might be a repeat. I figured I'd just bring my sketch book and hope for the best. It turned out really well. I was only randomly picked for one jury selection, and I was not picked to be on the jury. I was relieved. Listening to the questions the lawyers asked during the process led me to believe I was in for the same kind of spectacle I had witnessed 9 years ago. In fact, the defense compared the scenario to the Jerry Springer show. Is this really what the tax payer's money goes to? Its such a shame. Anyway, I got to sit around, listen to music, and sketch most of the day. So, I can't complain about getting paid to do that. Here are my drawings from today.

Disney Drollery

This weekend was spent playing around at Disney. Not just one park, but all of them! It is rather exhausting to have endless hours of fun at so many locations, but we pulled it off. My only regret was not getting a good picture from Spaceship Earth. Here is another strip of photos.
