valentines, awards, and carpets  
We celebrated Valentine's Day with our traditional--and very delicious--homemade crabcakes, served with slices of avocado and tater tots, followed by cheesecake from Termini. We watched Big Fish, which never fails to get me teary. I gave her a necklace from the de Young Museum in San Francisco and she gave me the previously mentioned robot flask she bought me last week.

We also tried to see The Reader, which was sold out due to next week's Academy Awards. Speaking of which we're going to a party for the Awards where we're meant to dress up like characters from any of the nominated films, so I have to come up with something. With a little head shaving and some powder in my beard, I could probably pull off Jeff Bridges' character from Iron Man, though I'd rather not. Hmmmm.... was Paul Giamatti in anything Oscar-worthy last year?

And finally, even though, it's usually pretty boring, I can't help but post one image I came across from the annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Irina Sheik painted to look like she's wearing a badly tattered Turkish carpet.

I'd like to study it up close.

That is some lovely painting. (And a lovely behind, of course.) It would take me hours, if not days, to cover that much area in such detail -- but I specialize in facepainting. (:

It is lovely. Makes me wish I could paint.

The woman who does that painting is amazing ... I picked up her book of "Painted Ladies" last fall. I want to paint on girls too! LOL

It must be interesting to paint a canvas that's ticklish.

I think you should build yourself a whole suit and go as Iron Man himself.

That sounds suspiciously like work. Maybe the place that made that costume for you also makes a sexy Iron Man costume.

So, like a naked Robert Downey Jr. suit?

That's a thought.... although technically against the rules of the party, I think.
