Sketches of horses, because I need practice there, and then a sketch of a dragon at the request of my girlfriend. And because as far as structure, horses and dragons are very similar.
Let’s see… trying to recap the week…
Well, earlier in the week I went over to visit Britanny in her dorm room, and we cuddled and watched Labrynth. I was under the impression I had seen all of this movie when I was younger, but about halfway through, I completely stopped recognizing things. So either I had never seen it all before, or I had totally forgotten the second half of the movie. I think that was Tuesday…
Wednesday I watched King Arthur, and was really surprised. I was expecting an absolutely awful movie, but I was really entertained. Clive Owen is a great actor, and he’s playing Dwight in Sin City. And the guy who played Lancelot, Ioan Gruffudd, is playing Mr. Fantastic in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie. The movie had a few problems, but overall I really enjoyed it.
On Thursday I was talking to Brian Carroll, and he mentioned that he was starting up a new character for himself in World of Warcraft. I had been having the itch to get back into the game, and that was all of the encouragement I needed. So I reinstalled the game and made a new character on Brian’s server. An Undead Warrior named Exanimus. We started playing and got to about L7-8 when the server went down for emergency maintenance. It was down all night.
Friday night I drove up to Hartford to meet up with Brian, Mike and a couple of their friends to grab some food and see Robots. I made a big detour so that I could go surprise Britanny at work, and then I headed to West Hartford. Ran into some trouble along the way that we won’t get into, and I met up with Brian and Mike for a quick bite at Friendly’s.
The movie was pretty good. It had some really funny, clever moments, and it had some really awful, pop-culture references. Overall I really enjoyed it, despite the few flaws. Afterwards we went to hang out at a diner for a bit, and then called it a night.
Saturday I took the day off and pretty much played World of Warcraft all day. I’m definitely enjoying the game again, but I’m approaching it from a more casual, relaxed manner, so that I don’t get burned out on it.
Today is all about work. Gotta get tomorrow’s comic finished, as well as get some other things taken care of. Fingers crossed I may get to spend some time with my girlfriend tonight, but I’m not sure. She’s got a busy week ahead of her with a lot of homework and studying for tests to do. I’ve got some work of my own that needs attention too. We’ll see how it works out.
Brian and Mike are both home from school this week, so they’re going to come over maybe Monday or Tuesday and watch King Arthur with me. They’re interested in seeing it now, and I really want to see it again, to make sure I wasn’t off my rocker in thinking that it was a good movie. We’ll probably also get some Halo 2 going… you know how that goes.
And a whole crowd of people dressed in civil war uniforms just marched down the sidewalk out my office window. What the fuck?
