Between taking the animals to the vet and spending some nice quality time with my sister and my parents individually,
I have to say today was a good day.
Before Liz had to go to work we played some Wii games and then she left and Dad and I took Hobbes and Tucker (our cat and dog respectively) to the Vet for their annual check-ups.
Hobbes has been getting skinnier even though he's eating more, so that was a major concern,
and Tucker has a small lump on his hind quarter, so we had to get that tested.
We should find out more about both tomorrow,
though the vet didn't sound too concerned.
Later, Mom and Dad and I went out to Borders where I bought volume 3 of Yotsuba&! and Dad bought me the anime film Metropolis on DVD as a Thank-You for typing a quiz for him.
Afterwards we went to Portillo's for dinner,
I hopped into Best Buy to get the new Crash Kings, New Pornographers, and OK Go albums, and grabbed a FIFA edition Coca-Cola on the way out,
then we all stopped by Dairy Queen for some dessert before going home.
Mom and I played some card games, and Tucker fell asleep on my lap,
and then Dad and I watched the first hour of Metropolis together.
While watching it, I felt my creativity bursting, so I did a few sketches for today.
Here's the free request,
for 2ndLtHavoc on deviantART,
who wanted Wembly from the great children's show Fraggle Rock.
Man, I love Muppets!
Hobbes was sauntering around the house like a diva and it gave me some good cat poses to draw.
Of course, watching Metropolis made me want to draw robots,
so here's an awesome robot girl thing.
Last, but not least,
this next sketch is something straight out of a dream I had.
I haven't had a flying dream in quite a while,
which is odd, because I used to have them all the time.
When I come home, however, I get dreams like crazy.
I dreamed the other night that I was some weird wild winged creature searching for a wide open space to call my own,
but everywhere I went there were just trucks and buildings and landfills and pollution,
and the people of the city started hunting me,
so I kept leaping from rooftop to rooftop in an attempt to get away.
I woke up before I could finish the dream.
I hate that.
Anyway, here's the creature I dreamed I was (a rough interpretation, of course):
That's all for today!
Thanks again for reading!
Love you all, and goodnight!
