It’s me! Do you remember me? You know, Tanya, the crazy girl who went back to school and sits in university classrooms full of obnoxious, texting 18-year old girls until 8pm several nights a week? Uh-oh, I may have accidentally become the angry mature student who sits in the front of class and answers all the questions. (Not really, but it is getting awfully close.)
Anyway, I have been away from the internet-that-sucks-up-all-my-time in pursuit early Shakespeare, fairy tales (!), short stories from 1889, and New Wave French films. I am attempting to stay ahead on homework so I can visit with you lovey people and respond to emails. Really–I’m not (intentionally) ignoring anyone who has posted or emailed or commented.
Outside of school I have continued to do my one-a-day (photo, sketch, & paragraph) EXCEPT FOR ONE FATEFUL DAY LAST WEEKEND! Ack. And on that only slightly related note I am going to leave you with a photo out my front window that I think is hilarious. (But it also totally deserves one of those black bars of modesty, so if you are sensitive to animal nudity you might want to avert your eyes.)
This dude has been living in our front tree for several years. One year included a lady-squirrel friend, but I think she ditched him for a less pretentious squirrel boyfriend with bigger biceps. Anyway, this guy likes to taunt our cats and this is his “put-em up” pose. (Actually, I think he was looking for walnuts, but I imagine him wearing teeny little red boxing gloves.) I’m fairly adept at naming inanimate objects, but I need help with him. Any suggestions?
