Good morning! [Oct. 6th, 2004|11:35 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
The training continues, hehe! Sorry if it's been a little quiet here on the journal/art front - I've been steadily training Matt on all of the ins & outs - he's picking it up wonderfully - should just be a matter of time before he can start doing a lot of things on his own! He's making the printing & sending lists right now, and getting the prints ready to send out, all by himself >^__^<

So now, I finally get to PAINT! I'm working on a kind of gothic/graveyard scene featuring a beautiful model who submitted some photos for my use. She is Asian with long dark hair and beautiful features and is named Ophelia, and hopefully this will turn out to be a lovely painting!

You can watch me HERE!!!

We went out with foxmagic for his birthday yesterday to PF Chang's - I had the vegetarian lettuce wraps - MAN those are good. And then he bought us (as early Christmas/birthday presents, hehe) the new expansion packs for Final Fantasy XI! Yay!!!!

The little corner grocery store on Market Street here in Celebration - "Gooding's" is closing shop now that they are opening a much larger full-service 24-hour Gooding's at Celebration's new Water Tower Place shopping area. I was sad at first, since I thought it was fun having that little corner grocery. Of course it will be nicer having the big 24 hour store though. But I just read in the local paper that where the old little grocery store was, there is now going to be a natural/organic/health food store!!! That's even better! Right now we usually have to leave Celebration to buy most of our health food stuff, so I'm very excited about having one so close now! Lol, little things make me happy sometimes =)

Okay, off to work!

I heard about the health food store coming in a few weeks ago - it's always awesome to hear about new stores that I actually want to shop in! Um, not that I have anything against Soft as a Grape or whatever it's called.

Good to hear Matt's training is going well.

That's not a little thing! I wish I had a corner health food store that close! I'm glad we have the small Wild Oats on Main, though.

You're training Matt fast!! It took forever to teach my dad how to copy and paste images into Powerpoint for my college research!
Vegetarian Lettuce wraps sound interesting, whats in them apart from lettuce?
Thats great you'll get a health shop near you! I'm allergic to all dairy products as well as egg, nuts and citus fruits so I have to get everything from health shops like any sweets I want, milk, youghurts, etc. But I have to go out of my town to get it all which is annoying when I have like 7 big cartons of milk to get home on the bus!

I'll have to take your word on that because my boyfriend has done a bunch of ICT courses so I don't need to show him how to do anything which is good, I'd hate to have to show 2 people how to do something!

Oh man they are good - I order them every time, lol. I've even tried making them at home, they were good but not quite the same....

They are finely minced tofu with onions, waterchestnuts, lime, mint, and rice noodles - all panfried crispy, with perfectly cut iceberg lettuce leaves to roll them up in!

I'm not sure if it's her real name, but it's the one she goes by. Either way - one of my favourite names!
