Sketchbook Of The Damned

Here are the first two entries in my new sketchbook. I always begin a new book by noting the date on the first page. But this time, continuing the trend I had started with acknowledging my parents' anniversary, I found that I was still a day-off. After I had written, what I believed to be, the date at the top of the page, a student peered over my shoulder and pointed out my oversight. By taking a closer look at the two-page spread (by clicking on it to enlarge it), you can see the misery I put myself through whenever I have committed a mistake to paper with ink. The Baby Bird is the little twit who won't let me forget it anytime soon. At times, he haunts me in my sleep. I'll now forever associate this particular sketchbook with the notion that I have the wrong date on the first page. Thanks, Baby Bird.

On a side note, I try to include wise words by the philosopher William Miguel Tamatoe throughout my scribblings. The front inside cover is no exception.

Yes, that happens to me sometimes as well. But replace "Baby Bird" with British actor, "Christopher Hewett," "William Tamatoe" with second century Christian philosopher, "Irenaeus of Lyons," and "sketchbook" with "word processor that I have to carry around by a handle as if it were a suitcase,"

Yeah, same here. Sometimes, I'll be working on my fantasy football and I'll get down to the bottom after adding up all my points and I'll realize I forgot to carry a two or something. Then I'm all like "damn."

Baby Bird came to me in my sleep last night, taunting me for not having gone to see Old Tom a few weeks back. I'll never rest for this decision. He also tells me that a copy of season three of Arrested Development is waiting for me up at Borders. A purchase that I can't afford. I told him this and he laughed. Then crapped on the comforter and flew out the window. mwt.

But you can tell #1 isn't really me, because I ...

No wait. It sounds like me.
