A Decade of TCAF

TCAF started in 2003, with its second year being 2005, which was my first, along with Monica! Happy decade-iversary! This time featuring one of the weirdest experiences I've ever shared in bed with two women (Monica and Danielle).

Wrench! Socket! Plugs, Motor, Tires, Chassis—SPEED BUGGY!

Another Hannah-Barbera favorite: Speed Buggy. He's too small though, and I didn't want to put the effort into scanning, and P'shopping him to be a bit in perspective to Debbie, Tinker, and Mark. Maybe someday.

The Doctor and Jamie

Watching old Doctor Who episodes is more painful than watching old Star Trek episodes... but you gotta do it.

It seems most of the episodes featuring the 2nd Doctor are missing from the BBC vault, so we don't get to see much of him, or one of the Doctor's longest running companions, Jamie McCrimmon.

Jamie was a cute fit lad from 1700s Scotland, and almost exclusively wore a kilt. He was a bit handsy with the Doctor, to boot. 

Needless to say, I wish Jamie had his own spin-off show a la Sarah Jane. 

While I was in NH this summer, I had some time to watch some old serials featuring the 1st and 2nd Doctors, and drew this picture of the Doctor and Jamie. 

Then, during my color-practicing last weekend during Open Studios, I colored this, with a '60s TARDIS-like background.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This IS my first time at the rodeo!

My day job sent me to two back-to-back conferences in Houston. Among the planned activities was an excursion to the enormous Houston Rodeo.

The mutton busting was cute, but a lot of the other activities made me kind of sad for the animals...from the bull riding to calf roping to even the prize animals. 

But, I was reminded even the worst of these creatures are treated better than those headed for slaughter.

Nonetheless, nothing says 'Merica like a chesty woman in a sparkly evening gown riding around a sports arena with an American flag that spits our firecrackers that startle the horse into full gallop.

A Boston native turned Texan kept her eye on me the whole rodeo, explaining, "I love to see the reaction of people from home the first time at the rodeo! It's always the same look..."

Indeed, I had a look of awe, wonderment, and ridicule all rolled into a horrific glee.

Josie vs Alexandra and Alexander vs Alan M

Yesterday we saw Alexander shaggy-haired and Alan M short. And today, the reverse. Shocker, I am more into drawing Alexander and Alan M than I am the gals. In the live-action film, Alexander was gay (ish?) and I definitely think either he or Alan should end up gay if Archie ever relaunched Josie. Cute guys in ascots?—I can dream, can't I?
