#346 – Day with D and Momma Dukes

with 9 comments

There were several other things that happened with my day of D and Momma Dukes. One, they brought the good weather with them, turning the gloomy morning into a beautiful afternoon. Two, we got to watch some stereotypical Italians be…stereotypical. And three, um…we split a sleeve of Thin Mints for dessert in my apartment. I know, I know. You’re jealous. Well, that’s just how things unfold when we all get together. We’re a party, I tell you.

So, generally speaking, I’m not a big fan of comic/art memes. Mostly cause I never have time to do them. And they are always, always popping up, and the latest one just could not be ignored. Dave Valeza started a thing where artists must draw their teen selves in comparison with their now selves. Who am I to say no to such a fun idea? Here’s what I came up with:

But if I built you a city, would you let me in?
Would you tear it down?

  1. ha ha! Very nice! Boo, I always wind up getting waiters that I can’t hear… low talkers!

    Aw, that’s clever! MMm pasta gut? The best kind, yes yes. I see the vans haven’t changed 😉 I’ve been wearing the same disgusting pair of converse since freshman year, and I still have a pair from grade school that I don’t think I could classify as shoes! (they do fit though)

    I was anti-jeans for a long time also, I wore these horrendous plaid pants all the time. ::shudder:: ah well 🙂

    coinky dinks all over! 🙂

  2. I like the both of you – 16 and now! It’d be funny to make a drawing of me like that!
    I missed your fun day w/ Mere and D. What were those italians doing?

  3. You’ve matured so much. I barely recognize you 😉

  4. Tara: Hah, he was a low talker. And a very bad waiter. It was as if he went to Bad Waiter school and passed with full marks or something. Yeah, I like my Vans. I’ve had them for a very long time…

    Bitsy: Draw you as a teenager too! It’s fun. The Italians were being loud and dramatic in the streets of Montclair, flailing their hands about this way and that. Mrow, Athena!

    D: Hah, I’ve changed quite a bit indeed. 😛

  5. I had a pair of Vans in high school, too. They were gray and burgundy. I currently own a black pair of Vans. I love tennis shoes, athletic shoes, whatever you want to call them. I just bought a pair of white leather Converse tennies. When I showed them to my husband, he said they were “Sweet!” I also have a pair of Reeboks, Pumas, and some Ed Hardy sneakers. Although I really prefer to go barefoot.

  6. I’ve done my best to block out my teenage years. Some things are best left buried in the past. But it nice to see that I can call you Paulie now. For some reason, it seems to fit.

  7. Trina: Mmm Converse and Vans are both nice shoooooes. Barefoot is nice though. Especially driving barefoot.

    TK: You may call me Paulie all you want. Just never Paulie Shore. 😛

  8. I wouldn’t even call you Paulie Shore if I hated your guts. That’s just wrong.

  9. You’re a good soul, TK. A very good soul.
