so, no one told you life was gonna be this way. your job's a joke; you're broke. your love life's DOA. it's like you're always stuck in second gear. when it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year but i'll be there for you, when the rain starts to fall. i'll be there for you, like i've been there before. i'll be there for you, 'cuz you're there for me too. - (c) the rembrandts
ah, i love friends. it will likely go down in history as my favourite show of all time just based on the sheer number of times i have seen each episode. i used to tape the episodes on VHS and then i eventually switched over to DVDs (and, i bought them as they came out so my collection cost me over $500 even though you can buy a season for $15 now! enough griping...). and, now i'm switching to digital for my iPod. it's so great. i can always connect with these six characters and i always laugh during every episode. i could go on and on about how great the show is (if i wasn't running behind this morning i totally would--maybe i'll come back and add more commentary!).
i did a lot of sketching (see picture #2--you can see my sketches shining through) trying to figure out which character's name would work best for creating "lauren". it was cool.
