Illustration Now, a book containing work by about 150 illustrators worldwide. Despite (or maybe because) I can't draw to save my life, I absolutely love illustration. Knowing this, Mr. Jazz came home with this book a couple of weeks ago. Who needs Valentine's day?
Kelly Joe Phelps - How I love his music. His latest album - well, it does date back to 2006 - Tunesmith Retrofit, is great. The guy, his guitar and the Blues. It doesn't get any better than that. There are many others on You Tube.

Portuguese grilled chicken cooked on a braseiro. It's the best pre-cooked chicken you can buy, done to perfection, seasoned just right. It's heaven on a drumstick it is.
Grapefruit - It's just wonderfully sweet and juicy this year. I can't get enough of it. Does anyone know why they call it grapefruit? Why grape????
My Mutant Lucky Bamboo - That plant on my desk has grown so much it's actually beginning to fall over. Why haven't I managed to kill it? I always kill plants. Something must have gone horribly wrong!
Vacation - In a bit over a month I'm off to Australia again to see friends that haven't been seen in a couple of years. The world is a small small place now. I'm getting to the point of wondering if I'll actually make it to the end of March before causing grievous bodily harm to someone other than myself. The CFH* is driving me insane.
The Family Markowitz by Allegra Goodman. I am loving this book.
Getting through this Friday to the blessed weekend. That will indeed be wonderful. Hopefully this won't turn into a "metric day" with 100 seconds in every minute and 100 minutes in every hour... That would not be good.
*AKA the Colleague From Hell. The woman is basically Pollyanna on steroids. With a bit of delusional neurosis thrown in. She's a bit disturbing really.
