Pickle, Gooser, T.V. Update and a Weird Waiter!

Here are a few pics I took today of Pickle and Gooser:

T.V. update: I am enjoying this! Once I got into the no t.v. mode it was actually pretty easy. I've done a whole bunch of drawing and tonight I started a new painting called "Beautiful Fungus." Hopefully I'll finish it soon so I can show it to you. I also plan on starting a sculpture tomorrow--we'll see how that goes!

One funny incident that happened today--we went out for a late lunch/early dinner with the kids and had the WEIRDEST waiter! He was downright creepy and I was trying to be extra nice because he seemed like the kind of guy that would just go off. Like he asked to take the order and I said "I'll have a turkey burger please." Then he just stood there staring at me.

So, as he was bringing the food, Teddy was sort of goofing off and hanging on Patrick's sleeve and I said "Teddy--stop it." And the waiter, who was standing behind me with a bowl of macaroni and cheese, shouts (and I mean shouts) "Just STOP IT!!" to Teddy.

We all sort of froze for a second and then the waiter started laughing nervously and said something like he was just kidding. I kind of laughed because, like I said, he seemed crazy and I was sort of scared of him. Teddy looked terrified. Then the waiter kept kind of harping on it and was like "I mean, I was just trying to help you out." It was SO bizarre!!! I think he temporarily lost it and blurted it out and then started back pedaling.

Then, to make matters worse, he served me a raw turkey burger and didn't even offer to take it off the bill. I think I'm permanently off turkey burgers...

So for the rest of the night, the kids and I have been joking around shouting Just STOP IT!!!! at each other and I told Teddy--You got served by that waiter!! What a freak!

Yikes, what a weirdo waiter! I think he needs a different line of work. I can't wait to see pics of your artwork! We have been watching very little tv lately and I have found myself much more creative.
