Everything
To the left is the anniversary gift I commissioned seventyeleventy to make for lady_fox. It arrived last night and is now on the wall above the dinner table. It is lovely! All of you should check out his website - Nikarnoldi.com (Which I coded, so no laughing) and his Flickr account .

I think we now have 7 of his pieces up in our apartment. I'm starting to get a little jealous. Shouldn't I have more of my art up?

So... Fox took me out last night for beer and food at Brasserie V to help ease the pain of yesterday's breakup. I didn't each much yesterday, just a protein bar, what with all the stress and stuff. Let me tell you, Belgian Abby beers are a very good way to get drunk well before you realize.

And their fries - "frites" if you're nasty - are an excellent way to mop up.

I am, otherwise OK. Hardly great and, as these things go, the upset comes in waves. Thank you again to all the people who were so great to me yesterday. LJ is still spitting the comments at me. :)

I suppose this cut serves as a general announcement that NarcissusKisses broke up with me. :/

Yes. I regularly over-tip him because I think he's setting his prices too low. :D But then he's also awesome and painted me something special for making his website.

When we buy a house, we're totally paying for him to come out and paint a mural somewhere in it.

And yes, very reasonably priced, and just awesome.

Not to mention that he's a pretty cool guy in general, and it's always good to know that if you're paying for art, the artist is a nice person.

:)
