Weekly: Feb 1-7 2009

I may have to initiate Plan B. I have no excuse for accomplishing nothing except that this was a social week. The only drawing I got done was when I was trapped at a friend's house for 6 hours while CJ played poker. He got a talking to.

For a vegetarian, I've been eating a lot of meat lately. We went out to a fancy organic sustainable restaurant, so I had some duck and some amazing boar nachos. CJ had never eaten sushi, so we went out and tried it. At a family brunch, a surprising amount of ground beef somehow "fell" into the vegetarian pasta. I can't say I've really liked it any of the times, except for the nachos.
