Sorry to be so absent. May has just whizzed by in a flash. Here's a Friday Five to see if I can get back into the swing of things.
1. May was full of birthdays including my first born Jesse who not only turned 18 but also graduated from high school this week. Talk about time going by. Sigh. Yes, I'm sad but I also know the turd has no intention of leaving the nest any time soon so it's all good. =O)
2. Oh man, so sad for this to be over. I was late to the party and watched all the seasons back to back via hulu this past month and I'm just not ready to leave the island. I am in the camp of viewers that really liked the ending. Very satisfying.
3 main reasons I will miss Lost:
Just kidding! Sort of. ;o)
3. This week was my birthday too and my mum got me these:
I love, love, love them. I wasn't really skeptical but I didn't particularly think they would make all that much of a difference to my walking but wow. I can go for miles now and I'm so surprised at the change in my posture. I can definitely feel different muscles being worked (glutes and front top thigh) so I'm sold. Would highly recommend them. They feel kind of weird at first , like you are going to topple over, but after a while it feels "normal".
4. YAY LEE! He had my vote.
Okay, is it just me or do you think these two hooked up? They were just so "close" during the season. Then her boyfriend dumps her the night of the finale. Coincidence? I'd love to see them record a duet. They're both awesome.
5. Not much exciting to share illustration wise so here is something that came in the mail this week. When I was first starting out, Hopscotch Magazine gave me my first job and I worked with them regularly providing b&w work for a couple of years. Every now and again they will reprint something I've illustrated and I receive a copy and a little royalty check. They were great to work with!xo to all. Have a happy and safe Memorial Weekend and please keep our troops serving overseas in your prayers.
