Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective days mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch - either in illustration or word form - and the other would make a companion sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise might make both minds more nimble. Hopefully.
Rain will start in 76 minutes, weather.com tells me. Would that it could be that accurate with the rest of my day. Mid-afternoon ennui will start in 54 minutes. Unless you have a nice cup of tea, which will forestall the inevitable by 12 minutes and 34 seconds. The dog will start barking about nothing in 9 minutes. She will stop in 9 minutes and 20 seconds, only to leave you wondering if it was really about nothing or if there was someone on the front porch after all. Mindlessly scroll through facebook every seven minutes and twitter every eight. And in 76 minutes, grab your umbrella.
