Obviously these are rough sketches. GO HERE for actual pictures of our visit.
Sunday was spontaneously spent driving through the Orange Curtain to visit one of my favorite J-Landers. We know her as TxsGuinan of Lotus Martinis. The cartoony yoga goddess whose writing always has me laughing, crying and thinking. I still don't understand why she's not a published writer -- except that she may not be pushing for a book deal.
If you're familiar with her journal, you know she accompanies her entries with cartoony images of herself, the hubs and her mother -- and others who may come along her way. So, when I went to see her, I was half expecting to enter ToonTown.
Mid-writing this entry, she contacted me to show me her recent entry -- depicting us actually in ToonTown. I like her images better. We all appear to be about twenty years younger and twenty pounds lighter. Even Hunny looks like a little whipper-snapper in the picture. She's just the greatest.
She's very much like her cartoony-self. She's beautiful, fit, fun, cool, smart, down-to-earth. I can't say enough about how I adore her. Her cartoony-hubs is dead-on. I could pick him out of a line-up based on his cartoony images alone. He's a very handsome man -- kind, generous, sweet. Hunny kept checking in with him while the girls were cackling and howling in the computer room -- then in the kitchen. Gigi got right down on the floor with Hunny and they loved eachother up. Oh yeah, this is a friend for life. No awkwardness. No insecurities. Just a day of fun, talking, laughing, cookie making, and martinis of course.
I look forward to many more visits. Just another reason AOL-J Rocks.
