Here's the best part of yesterday: ARTICHOKES!!
I experimentally poured oil on them and cooked them upside-down for the first twenty minutes, which is not a bad idea. Makes the oil go into the heart.
And today I did some drawing at the Rye café, but not much because it was too noisy. They have a horribly buzzing fridge, and LOTS of small children, but most importantly annoying music at just the sort of volume where it's neither loud enough nor quiet enough to ignore.
