stupid watership down bunnies!

right now im watching watership down. no matter how many times i watch this, i fail to see the point of the movie. i mean..i like the character design and animation, but the story confuses the heck outta me! Bigwig is my favorite.

Reminds me of the time when I had to get up early to take Tavis to the airport. He drove though, cuz i rather him drive Calvin *my car* when hes out here, especially cuz that morning i was much too tired to operate a vehicle. I was asleep in the front seat and he stopped suddenly. i woke up and saw this mass herd of bunnies crossing the street! Tavis grumbles "Stupid Watership Down Bunnies!!!" and drives on after they crossed. I snickered to myself, unsure of if i was dreaming or not, hee hee. i wasnt ;)

but yeah, if anyone could help me out on the details of watership down that would be great. i know the basic jist of the movie but...gawd...weird stuff! and such a violent movie about bunnies.
i have the DVD so i have the "bunny speak" extra feature. its very interesting =)

I love Engel =)

Playing around with oekaki. i can NEVER get the hang of this stuff but..heres something i drew. You want a real pro? ask Kimbo lol



EDIT: it has come to my attention that the picture that is showing up is not the picture that i drew. I drew a pic of me and Engel. for some reason, Engel looked at my LJ and its showing some angry growly wolf thing. if this happens, thats not what i drew. so..yeah...sorry. =P
i dont know why its showing up for me and not him. it shows up on everyone elses LJ....odd....this happens a lot with this particular BBS

weird dream

i just remembered that last night i had an odd "leave it to beaver" type dream.
Tav was the typical working husband and i was the stay at home wife, bullet bra and all...and the last thing i remember was changing a baby's diaper. i dont know how to do that IRL but in the dream i was such a pro at it! and i was happy too....a little too happy?
its not how i was raised. dad told me to NEVER be like that to any man....while he bosses me around to vaccuum and make him a sandwich lol =P erm...yeah.
but...i know it would never be like that. i know im not one to stand being degraded but in the dream it didnt feel bad/make me mad at all. it was normal...and..it was nice. i enjoy cooking for tavis but...his cooking is better than mine, lol!
hmm....what does it all mean?

man, i could sure go for some of Tav's french toast about now. oh wait..nm...not allowed to have carbs. GRR!
tav had a weird symbolic dream too that turned out really nicely but its not my place to post it id have to ask permission. =)

altavista..la dee da

awhile back, like last year, my art class was presented with a contest from California Pizza Kitchen. We had to take an item from their menu or even just some ingredients they used and cleverly/artistically illustrate it on one of their pizza boxes. the rules were:
it HAD to be an item they actually use in their food
it HAD to have CPK or "california pizza kitchen" somewhere on the box.
the article for this can be found here
http://www.nctimes.com/news/2001/20011214/91138.html

I started brainstorming for the project and i came up with hawaiian pizza...was gonna have a shark fin coming out of the water but the shark fin in reality was a pizza slice *can you picture it?* okay concept....

the next idea was gonna be tequila chicken pasta with a drunken chicken eating the worm...but nah..that wouldnt go over very well.

my next idea..and i swear this is a winner...Potato Leek Soup.
i was gonna have a potato standing with its back to you...and it was gonna be *writing the word 'soup' in the snow* get it? Potato-LEAK-SOUP!! the potato is peeing the word soup into the snow??!! LOL never eat yellow snow, especially at california pizza kitchen. yeah well.. i was so ready to do that. my art teacher liked it but wanted me to actually win something so he didnt want me offending people as i usually do.

so my final idea was taking the "japanese eggplant pizza" and having 2 big fat eggplants sumo wrestling on top of the pizza. heres the finished box. it won 3rd prize which was 2 free dinners at CPK and an award of some sort =)


im messed up i know =)

in sadder news though, when i was searching for that article i came across the obituary for my grandpa from last february. *sigh* here it is if youd like to read it. His name is Charles E. Dornsife
http://www.nctimes.com/news/2002/20020220/yyyy.html

hes the one who really supported my art from the beginning, since i could pick up a pencil. He taught me a lot of what i know about life in general and even was the one who taught me about facial expressions. i miss him...*sigh* I keep forgetting that he died. its just like hes living down the street like he always has and hes just asleep when i go over there...so i dont want to disturb him. To this day i cant watch Popeye the sailor without thinking of my grandpa *he was in the navy...and loved popeye cartoons*
love you grandpa. i think im gonna go change the channel now. the "Popeye Show" just came on Cartoon Network. Where's Adult Swim when i need it?
