Cones and Corneas.

I think thats quite an apt name for the book Im not writing about dogs that lose an eye.  Shes recovering nicely now,  but still has the lampshade cone on til tomorrow and I think were all dying for her to have her freedom again.  Actually just earlier I nearly had a heart attack cos I thought her mouth was bleeding,  but it turned out to be a bit of red fluff she’d managed to pick up from somewhere.

So something thats been in the back of my mind for nearly a fortnight now.  Ordered a taxi from outside the restaurant  a couple of weekends ago and it turned up quarter of an hour late.  Now at this point I was full of Italian and wine and feeling very chilled so it never occurred to me til later to be a bit peeved.  The taxi driver said he was late because when someones getting picked up from a restaurant if they say they want a taxi for eleven that will be when they leave the table and therefore the taxi doesnt need to turn up til quarter past.  Is it just me or is this bullshit? So wont be using that taxi firm again or quite frankly going to that restaurant as the waitresses were a bit weirdly over familiar and the place just didnt seem too clean to me (and when I say over familiar I dont mean they were just a bit friendly,  I mean one of them said someone couldnt have dessert cos he hadnt eaten his main course and then the other scuttled over and shoved some mints in my hand at the end of the meal like ya nan giving you pocket money).

So the main purpose of this blog is to show you these pictures. Came across this artist yesterday (Diego Fazio) and he specialises in pencil drawings that look like photos and I think he’s amaaaazing!

  1. Good to hear your little dog is getting better… 🙂 I saw a pic on twitter of the first portrait drawing you put up by Diego Fazio.. I didn’t realise it was so big.. never thought to do a face that size… I noted he goes about it in the same way I do my portraits.. only I start with the eyes and move outwards from them.. rather than from the corner… Brill arn’t they.. I bet more so if you were stood in front of them… 🙂 I wouldn’t mind posing for him judging by the view in that pic… 😉
    Sounds like you had a bit of a bum night there.. I don’t really go to restauraunts.. it’s hit and miss whether the food is actually edible or safe for that matter.. I’ll stck to good old home cooking especially when sprog no 2 is doing the cooking hehehe… 🙂

  2. Hi hun! 🙂

    Glad your dog is getting better. Still hacked off at the owner of the other dog though. 😦

    Sounds like typical taxi bullshine hun – they are usually late because they arranged your collection while still en-route with their current passenger.

    The restaurant sounds like my kind of place though – I prefer to relate to the people providing the food! 🙂

    Pity I can’t afford to go, but still…

    The artist is amazing and the fact it is a pencil drawing is astounding!!! 🙂

    Hope life treats you well my friend! 🙂
