The pool was wonderfully warm and it was nice to just hang out under the water and pretend I am a water dragon..I'm a tard like that sometimes. I "fly" under the water =>
Speaking of dragons, I had to do a project for my Adobe Illustrator class where I needed to design a box design for a tea brand, beer, wine or coffee. I chose tea. Dad and I collaborated as I was finishing up the overall design. It was called Jade Dragon Organic Tea (cliche..so sue me), and I had the dragon completed but was having difficulty with the composition. Dad worked with me on the overall composition and I designed a border, he helped me with the placement, dimensions and research and viola! We came up with this:
I think Dad and I make a pretty good team =) I can't wait to turn it in tomorrow.
The lake was pretty chilly but it wasn't so bad in the London Bridge channel. We just sat and ate hardboiled eggs (I'm on a low carb diet and so is he..I've been good all week I swear!) We brought the dog but left her at home, since she can't stand swimming and she's not too interested in the doggy life-vest we bought her.
Dad and I watched Cinema Paradiso, an Italian foreign flick about a boy who becomes a projectionist in a town where movies were the only entertainment....its very good, you should watch it! Some hot and heavy Italian sex scenes though..be warned 0_o We also watched the first DVD in Dad's Pink Panther box set. *squee!* We also made a big tasty diet conscious steak-dinner and I ate an entire porterhouse, caesar salad and an entire artichoke! Piggeh! Also I've come to realize that if they made artichoke flavored mayonaise I would eat it by the spoonful. I'm gross. =9
Overall it was an excellent trip, very relaxing indeed. I need to spend a week there, one weekend, even a 4 day weekend, goes by too slowly. I also got to talk to Dad a little more than I usually get to with June and the girls around. I kind of like it when its just us..me being an only child I'm used to the one on one attention. Random fact, I also learned that dad is a certified teacher in the state of Utah..who'da thunk? 0_o
On the way home from June's after having some delicious taco salad June made (from my mom's recipe!), I noticed an orange glow on the horizon and the delicious smell of mmm.....buuuuurning.....hit my nose. There's a big ass fire on one of the Indian reservations around here. I'm kind of nervous but I think its far enough back that it won't get near my property..but I'm worried about Reagan, I'm not sure how far the fire is from him. plague_dog if you read this, respond and let me know the stats if you know anything, I wanna know which direction its going. Fucking California brush...that's what we get for being a desert with plants.
I love the smell though. If it weren't hazardous I'd open my window and let the fumes in.
Ok going to bed so I can turn in my project proudly tomorrow. *yawn*
