It's March, time to head to the patisserie

March 01, 2014 10 Comments

 

Ok, I'll admit it, I am biased. I think March is the best month. I was born in March. Girl Scout cookies come out in March. The depths of winter are behind us in March and all that is glorious and new is on the horizon... Other fun March facts that we should all look forward to celebrating:

March 11: My birth

March 15:day that Caesar was stabbed to death by Brutus.

March 17: annual my-mom-sends-me-green-hanky-pankys-from-Leppie-the-leprechaun day

March 30th: the monumental one year anniversary of the proposal which launched the shoe hunt

So, with all these wonderful dates of note in this glorious month, I set out to create a sketch that I would want climb right into and live in to honor the significance of these 31 spectacular days. What better spot than the Patisserie? Of course, this doesn't really look like it, and that doesn't really look like me, but the thought of sitting at my favorite spot in Georgetown, and ordering walnut chocolate chip cookies and perfect miniature croissants inspired this sketch.

Your a Pisces! I’m born in the sign of water too. No surprise then where your artistic talents came from. It was written in the stars. :)

Inslee, since we’re both Pisces, I wanted to share this with you. (hope you have a good sense of humor)

Everywhere you go, laughter and comedy ensue. This would be great if you were trying to be funny. You are deeply confused by the idea of sex. As far as you are concerned, if it didn’t happen in “The Velveteen Rabbit”, it doesn’t exist. Piscean women wear long floaty dresses and enormous amounts of unusual silver jewelry. On hikes. Pisceans claim to love the stars, but the only constellation they can find is the Big Dipper. If they cannot find it, they cry. You remember what you were wearing on March 3rd, 1981 but forget your own address. You have no sense of direction. The people you find going in reverse at 70 m.p.h. on the expressway are usually Pisceans. Pisceans are most likely to die by falling out of a window or getting run over by a truck. That is, of course, unless they live with a Cancer. Pisceans are so zoned and perpetually endangered that they can bring out the maternal instincts of a Leo. Don’t be fooled, however; many Pisceans can surprise you by kicking your ass and the asses of your four imaginary friends. While Leos tend to achieve the most fame in the field of entertainment, Pisceans strive to achieve historical greatness by sheer fluke. They are proud to tell you that Michelangelo, Galileo, George Washington, and Albert Einstein, none of whom had an agent, were all Pisceans. What they won’t tell you is that so is Ted Kennedy. Pisceans claim to want “honest criticism” of their work. Then they commit hara-kiri on the floor when you say you don’t like it. Never try to use logic with a Pisces; he or she is living about three feet off of the natural ground or in Narnia. Their tools of debate are non-sequiturs, quotes from Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and, of course, crying. It wouldn’t matter what linguistic devices Pisceans use to describe philosophical concepts because they aren’t positive they know what they’re talking about anyway. You cry over dead animals in the road but feel no remorse about mowing down humans you don’t like. Cancerians say one thing and do another. Scorpios say one thing and do it just for spite. Pisceans say far too much and do whatever the hell they want.

My only comment was . . . . Road trip to Narnia! :)
