We went to Disney's Animal Kingdom (one of my favourite places) for the day - we ate lunch at Tusker House, a fantastic mostly vegetarian African buffet at the park. Crazy good food. Then we went to Downtown Disney and saw "Jumper" (movie) - pretty good, but too short. We then had dinner at Jiko - another African restaurant - at the Animal Kingdom Lodge - it's one of my favourite restaurants. I'd always liked it because they had a lot of vegetarian options, and this time they told me they actually had a whole separate menu for vegetarians - I had no idea! The other menu was alrady great with lots of veggie options,, but the vegetarian menu had all those and then several more. We had curried asparagus & pistachio soup, and the "Taste of Africa" (a selection of African dips & breads) for our appetizers, and then I had a fantastic coconut tofu dish, and Matt had an eggplant & okra stew. Both were very good. We were too stuffed for dessert, but had drinks. We stayed the night at Disney's "Caribbean Beach" resort so we didn't have to drive back home - I love that resort!
Matt got me a lovely red rose, Choxie truffles (I love Choxie!) and a cute dinosaur stuffed animal =)
A great Valentine's day!

If you're not familiar with online graphics as a hobby - you might want to look into it. It's a FUN way to spend time doing something creative, without the whole "having to paint something yourself" part, hehe. You get to create your own designs and graphics on the computer using my paintings, officially and with my blessing. For ANY questions regarding usage of my images as tubes or tags, this is handled by CILM (not by me myself) - you can contact them here: firstname.lastname@example.org or call them: Customer Service Number Call (toll-free in the USA): 1-877-264-2456
All righty - back to painting - I have triptychs to finish!
