We are walking into my friend Amanda’s apartment and entering to my friend Eric’s 50th Birthday Celebration! We are super excited to get to share this day with him. Earlier this week a bunch of us at work chipped in to get him a gift certificate…So I was going to originally use that as today’s gift. Then I felt like it wasn’t quite enough so Theresa and I found him some locally made Pepper Jelly….then…..well that didn’t fit either. Money in a card? Always nice…and I guess it will work. A few days ago I asked if I could do anything for the party and Eric told me that they didn’t need anything but there was something I could help with. He asked me to talk to his none Trader Joe friends. I get the vibe that Eric is worried that the Trader Joe folks will be on one side of the room and his Non TJ Friends will be on the other side of the room like some crappy high school dance. So when we get to the party I do my best to MINGLE like a champ! In case you don’t know…I love to talk to people! So I do my best to introduce myself to everyone….to remember names of the people I like….and to break up the ‘high school dance’. Surprisingly enough it all works out! We all have one thing in common…we love ERIC! So the party is a hit! And Eric has great taste in friends….lol.
This is a quick painting sketch of some little Buddha statues that my friend Samita took a picture of. I want to detail it out and make it so much cooler but that will have to wait for another day. It is getting late in the evening and work is already only a few hours away. How does time seem to be speeding up? Sigh.
