Good news! [Jun. 28th, 2005|10:36 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
My step-sister dedlobster (aka SONYA!) is GETTING MARRIED!!!! To her long-time boyfriend Paul, who's a great guy. I'm so happy for them! They first started going out in high school, and later re-united and are now getting married - that's so happy =)

We drove over to the new 24-hour Gooding's Grocery here in town, but it *still* isn't open. They are supposed to open "sometime today". I guess we'll go check back soon. I peeked in the windows and it looks really nice - there was a big sushi section (hopefully some vegetarian sushi!) and a bakery and produce and everything. I peeked in the liquor store and it looks well-stocked indeed.

I'm painting!

I'm finishing up my Wicked, Tricksy & False painting - it's coming along so nicely - this is going to be REALLY cool.......

Watch me HERE!

I will probably be finished up in time to post tonight!

Today is a good day =)

Looking good already, very nice painting!

And fun to have a new grocery store. Especially since it's 24 hour. I think we need something like that here, lol. Would make life a lot bit easier and less rushy when you know you need something at the very last minute :P

thats great about your step-sis!

Also, great about goodings... they used to be all over orlando (my absolute favorite grocery store), but all of them closed a few years ago as the family that owned them was trying to do more catering than grocery operation... I wonder if they're coming back? I'd be so excited!!

Right now there are only 2 of them, so this'll make three. This is supposed to be their "flagship" location - I still have only peeked in the windows - it looks pretty sweet!

Cool fairies

They look so trendy, naughty gothic punk girls. I love how each has a different overall coloring. I am glad you like her husband to be! when my sister told me she was getting married I cried as I was in shock. Having only met her husband once and not really liking him :{ this was years ago. He has turned out OK but not terrific which is what you hope for when you love your sister so.

Re: Cool fairies

Thank you Lorraine!

Lol, that's very true. In this case he's a good guy, and I've known him for a long time too. He actually works for my dad as well (they rehab and fix up old houses), which is cool!

I just peeked on the cam! It looks cool! But too tiny for me to get many details yet.

Congrats to your step sister!

I see a lot of people commenting about the webcam screen being tiny. I don't know if it works the same for others, but I just right click on the screen and can zoom it larger. Can even make it full screen. :)

You're vegetarian?

I'm vegetarian,too,but I eat fish and dairy.It's because of at my age I'm worried I won't get enough of what I need because it's hard enough to get protein and whatever with still eating dairy and fish.I think that's cool,and I love your art work.Keep painting!

Re: You're vegetarian?

Hi Raven!

I've been vegetarian for about 13 years now (I do eat dairy - but no meat - no dead animals, hehe!).

Actually you'll find that most vegetarian foods (especially "fake meats" or soy, gluten, TVP, quorn based products) have a higher protein content than meats (fish, pork, chicken, etc.). And of course any kind of bean/legume combination forms a huge complete protein!

I eat a lot more protein now as a vegetarian than I ever did as a meat-eater!

Here are some good articles:
