Hey! Hi!

I've been to life drawing classes!

I think maybe I was a little enthusiastic. This is a not-too-exaggerated transcript of my several conversations of the night.

ME: Hi!
Innocent Bystander: Um, hi.
ME: My name's Lorena! What's your name!
IB: Um...
ME: Hey! Great! Do you live near by?
IB: Um...
ME: Hey! Me too!
IB: Oh. Good.
ME: Isn't this great! I haven't done the for eight years! You know, life drawing! On big paper! And look, I'm out without my kids! They're lovely (insert diatribe on the loveliness of my kids, their names, ages, likes dislikes etc). But hey! They're at home. And me? I'm out!
IB: Um, I think the break might be fin-
ME: Oh, hey, did I tell you about my Uni days? Oh, those halcyon days... Hey! Wait! Where are you going? WILL YOU BE MY FRIEND?!

The Transformation

Did I mention James has a peg leg to get around on? Life is much more fun now...

Our Second Life

Because we're always ready to jump on a technological bandwagon, although usually too late to be innovative, and just in time to battle the crowds doing the same, we've been exploring Second Life ("SL" to those in the know). Call it research. If you meet us in the ether, please call us by our real SL names Kantor and Nena Klees.

Thank you.

Oh, and we galavant in the sky. Together. *sigh*

Well, James is getting around ok on his plastered leg, my gold ring turned up, the coffee machine is being fixed under warranty, and I'm sculpting a new vital bit out of araldite for the food processor as I type. Maybe whoever-it-is is finally pulling the pins out of that doll.

And I can't stop looking at this photo of the girls skillfully (ahem) merged in photoshop.
