Wine night memories and robots

Ahh, home, sweet, suburban wasteland. I am back in the heartland for a brief visit before venturing back into the shoe/dog daycare world. So far I have been treated to brunch and taken a 4 hour nap. Home is nice.

So Monday was the last wine night of 2005 (sob). It also happened to be a cookie decorating party. After my first course of wine and my second course of cheese (w/ wine on the side) I drew a robot on a cookie. Not knowing we were all sharing the cookies, I ate it. It was delicious.

And finally, this is a draft of a robot for a patch I made for a friend on mine. The writing is from an installment I saw in LA. I think it translates as "It's only water in the teardrop of a stranger." I put a pic of those words on this blog a while ago. Now you can see it in my context. Actually, it's just a quote from a longer passage that is really, really beautiful. I'll probably post the full text sometime in the near future. Click on the robot to hear a taste of delightful from the Rev. Al Green.
