Fail Ale

The heartbreak that is a spilled craft beer. I am klutzy and am especially klutzy around beverages. When I get talking I tend to animate with hands and elbows. I knocked a glass of red wine clear across our banquet table at our company holiday gathering in Mountain View, CA this past December, spraying my colleague's fiancee in the process (I am still very sorry and embarrassed, Rachel).

Please note that this klutz-factor is just as readily displayed with non-alcoholic beverages like water, soda, coffee and milkshakes. In fact I even slid a cheesecake off a serving dish just yesterday at a garden party, narrowly missing my friend's mother-in-law's feet.

The cheesecake did land right side up on the cardboard disk it was on so it was shaken but edible. The woman who made the cheesecake was not pleased about the glazed fruit that went flying into the grass or the new form factor of the cheesecake. When I checked the dessert area later, there was only a small sliver left so I hope she's thankful for that.

Off to Work: Another Day, Another Day

Realized this morning that this might make a good Valentine sketch -- trudging off to work, realizing all of a sudden, in an eye-opening way, that it's Valentine's day.

Sketched this while I was depositing checks online the other night. It's a tedious slow-going process of scanning in the checks, both sides, then uploading them 'just right' to the bank website. Benefit is that money is there instantly and I avoid mailing the checks to Texas and wondering if anyone will have their way with them before they get there.
