so i didn't swipe the post-its... but i did find a little mexican pixie.

ok- so i didn't get a chance to swipe some post-its from work (they do owe me ya' know!!!) but i did however manage to doodle out the friendly old man who made me giggle during my lunch break. :)
last tuesday i was really rather giddy- a faboo song that i was singin' along to in the car- a free venti white chocolate mocha at buckies, nice, funny smiling strangers- who wouldn't have a fabulous morning??? i also had some men walk past me while i was standing near the sugar table and randomly smile- i smiled back.
when i was leaving buckies i saw the funny man outside being waited on a chauffer type person by a all black tinted windowed car. he was with a sports guy- i think he was a football player, perhaps the old man was his papa. but he waved good bye and smiled at me, "see you later sweetheart, you have a good day sweetie." i smiled and waved back while sipping on my venti and the football player waved back and smiled too-- if only i knew football players names-- i'm sure i've seen him on tv though. too bad football isn't really my thing... eh!
i was very smiley at work too and one of my co-workers said, "you're just letting out all this great positive, welcoming energy". another co-worker said to, "cut the crap!"- but i couldn't!- so i bootie-bonked her and she laughed and spanked my tush with some rolled up copies before i ran away. hehehe- strangely the next day on wednesday i had the most slow, agonizing, sad day... for no reason at all... it was just such a sloOOoOOw and boring day, i felt like that depressing doggie cartoon named droopy. ech!
this sat i went to a drawing workshop. it was kind of nice- there was only 5 other people- and that was including the man who ran it and the model! so it was kind of nice that it was such a small class. the model that we had was
very tiny. like a little pixie. she spoke with an accent and commented on my scarf. it was a rainbow handweaved scarf i got in ecuador. only then did she start chit-chatting on where she came from- mexico, 11 years ago. so tha tmakes her a little mexican pixie. usually when i go to workshops, the models are usually a bit rubenesque- not fat, jsut a nice curvy normal. she was very thin though and could fit in my purse if i forced her- she was less than 5 foot i think. but she was really nice... but almost fell asleep on a 30 minute pose- hehehe. i'm terrible at drawing faces if i don't draw them from a picture or have more time... which explains the spooky faceless one in the middle. the one at the top i wasn't actually goign to draw so much- i was foccusing on her feet but then got bored so i move dup to her body... then tehre was no space for her face- oh well! i hadn't gone to a life drawing class in ages... i thikn i might go again- it' just down the street from my apt anyway- so cutie can drop and pick me up. :) kisses cutie and thank you for doing so last sat. :)
sunday we went to the los angeles heritage day museum- you can read more about that and have a look at some of the pics by going here ( i also make a cameo in the vid-ehehheh). toodles for now!

little miss on alameda...

this is a little miss that i've been watching on my way to work for close to 2 years now. i don't know her name, adn all i can say- is that i hope she is well. she's not been at her bus stop on alameda for a complete week now. little miss... i do believe has gone missing!

i never see her asking for money- she's usually fixing her makeup, she wears very loud blur eyeshadow and loads of red smeared lipstick. i also see her checking her feet sometimes. she stares off aimlessly while i'm at the red light. i once saw her getting questioned by police, but she was calm- she stayed seated and looke dup like a little lost puppy.

i'm not sure if she may be a prossie when need be- but i have seen some suspicious behaviour between her and some men.

1st suspicious occasion- i saw a man sitting very close to her and was undoing his pants. she stayed looking at him and he smiled and put his hand out kinda like, "so- whatch'ya think" she looked down on her lap and seemed unammused. this man didn't look homeless, but didn't look in teh best shape either- definitely not a type of man i would think solicit sex form a woman on the broad daylight- but, well, one can never know.

2nd suspicious occasion- when i pass early, little miss is still sleeping. she either sleeps sitting up with a blanket over her head or on the floor bundled up in blankets. she was on the floor this time and a black man was sitting on teh bench beside her and he kinda slapped her bum and then shook it with a smile- he left his hand there and remained laughing with an open mouth it seemed like an "ooh yeah!" kind of vistory or something... of course- i have NO clue what was really going on- but that guy made me mad- i thought to myself, "leave her alone! she's only trying to get some sleep!".

3rd suspicious occasion- i had teh red light but ddint' see her at her stop- this time i saw her across the street talking to a business man watiign for the bus. at first he ignored her, buthten he got very close to her and began to talk. it seemed kind of likehe was talking, but not looking at her, as if he was trying to be sneaky. then the light turned green and i had to go. :(

4th suspicious occasion- little miss was sitting with a blanket over her head adn i saw someone elses feet sticking out of the blanket as if he were kneeling... not sure if anythign was really gogin on- but well...

i've taken a few pics of her but have never posted them, cos they make me feel sad for her. i wonder if she has any children or if her school friends ever think about her..."i wonder what little miss is doing now..." i've never seen her ask for money or be a distraction or acting crazy. i wonder somertimes about these peoples lives. i want to go talk to some of them, but am unsure what their reaction would be. little miss- i do hope you are well and that i see you again on alameda sometime soon!
