Can't get into that summer dress?

Everything is running down to a stop so I'm putting on the mountain boots and heading for the original Shut-Eye Town where life is ten times more dangerous than here. Watch out for incoming shepherds, the South Americans who move without sound...and the village that won "El Gordo"...three fact I think I'll write a book about that...

Don't look down

And now they have just brought out Adobe CS6....which I'll be testing after this version...and then I'll write to Queen Elizabeth and see about projecting some images onto Buckingham Palace...

Singing along to Mahler

Sometimes when I listen to music it makes me feel sick as if I have eaten too much chocolate cake. I was listening to Mahler when this drawing came out. I like Mahler a lot but sometimes it just makes me queasy...why?

Anyway, this is done with Adobe illustrator 5...the free download which runs out in a couple of weeks. It is amazing software. It draws by itself. Unfortunately it costs the same as a world cruise so I better not get used to it.

Ratbag sis & bro

Well, the chef never turned up and the hotel was a great reminder of Fawlty Towers on acid so it was worth going to. However, I am not sure that I will ever eat octopus again, having learned that they are immensely intelligent...

A couple of  local ladies tell me you have to "frighten" the octopus three times to make sure it is tender for the cooking process. How do you give an octopus a fright? You dip it in and out of boiling water three times!!!!

I shall return to chomping my way through the rainbow swiss chard patch...

Hit that note

This evening, the Dream Team, myself and Alice who used to be Frank are going up to a restaurant in the mountains to learn to cook octopus. It is the octopus festival. The restaurant in question denies any such knowledge of the event according to the dream team's phone calls. Seeing as how the other half of the dream team has just dumped his english chef girlfriend we are all slightly apprehensive of crazy chefs in general...
