doodly doo

This afternoon my neighbour friend and I were looking at some funny Tyrrell Katz sheep placemats that Stuart and I bought during our minibreak in Alfriston and then we drew some sheep in her sketchbook:

Here's a picture from the weekend with my most fab girlfriends Bridget and Ellen (ellenlindner). We are the glam spec-wearing American brigade.

Speaking of Americans, I just had a surreal conversation over dinner with Stuart where he misunderstood me because of my American accent, something which hasn't happened for years. The confusion went on for quite a long time, the word in question being 'haughty', which he misheard as 'hottie' and therefore assumed I had a total crush on the actress Anna Chancellor because of the shape of her nose.
(We have a lot of deep and meaningful conversations like this.)

Your american? I didn't even recognise your accent at the thing.

You Irish? I thought I heard a bit of a Puerto Rican lilt in there... or was it Cuban? ;-)

Oh haha...

I actually spent the better part of the thing trying to figure out how Irish I sounded. It seemed more prominent especially around Joe and Shug.

Aw, I like the way you speak.

Mine's a terrible mix. Americans think I sound weirdly affected and Brits aren't sure where I'm from, but think I say lots of words wrong. One of my friends goes into hysterics whenever I say 'chalk'.

We are the glam spec-wearing American brigade. James said it was like having the Actionettes in the house.

and I thought you were Canadian for years!

Re: chalk?
Yeah, it's Alex that gets such a kick out of 'chalk'.

When I say it, I just have to open my mouth and make the sound. If I try to say it his way, I have to stretch my mouth and nose downward in a very unnatural way, usually reserved only for pronouncing the word 'upholstery'.

you gals need a uniform like the pink ladies from grease.

Ooo, good thinking! ;-)

My favourite three American ladees.

Ellen and Bridget really ARE rather fabulous! :-)

Ha ha! Nice one :)
That happens to Stephen and I on occasion, where I just say, "What?" "What?" for about five minutes while he repeats the offending phrase.
PS Made it to Kuniyoshi this morning - excellent and inspiring! Stephen got the catalogue...it's gaw-juss.
Stay in touch! :)

Yay! I'm so glad you got to see the Kuniyoshi show! Have a great flight, I'm going to miss you! Come back very soon!

PS Hey, here's a picture of the moment Bridget and I discovered we wear the same size shoes. Wahey! (This does not happen very often.)

Women in spectacles are awesome. Esp if they draw comics.

Re: sigh
Comics guys in spectacles aren't so bad either! Esp if they live in Seattle.

Re: SHEEP'd!
CUTE!! Aw, the top one's so sweet. And, ha ha, I love the little peach-coloured peg legs on Alvie, he looks very silly. :-D

Thanks for letting me see!
