Anyway, after watching ponies, working out and breakfast we went to get an oil change and we decided to hit up the local seasonal fair.
I have been living here in Tallahassee for over a decade (Andrei even longer), but I have never once been to the fair. It happens once a year and mostly everybody in town goes, but I have anxiety issues related to crowds and strange places, so gathering the courage to go to a fair with all the noise, people, etc can be daunting.
I recently started taking meds for my anxiety and I have to say, they really help me, so much so that today I managed to do something that would have reduced me to a shaky blabbering mess not that long ago.
And you know what? It was fun! Plus I got to see tiny goats, the tiny goats make it all worth it to me... I just think they are incredibly cute and hilarious.
|Gooooats, goats everywhere.|
|Alpaca! I petted it... it was soooo soft and fluffy.|
|Award winning rooster, he had quite the voice.|

I sat down and tried to flesh out a couple of character sketches based on two of your random descriptions, first I tried Maple Girl's:
Name: Azalea Woodhouse
Age: 16 (this time)
General Features: Azalea is a psychic vampire (she takes energy from other people instead of blood) that was captured when she looked like she was in her 30's. To escape she used her ability to completely drain someone of life energy - but that turned her into a child with no memory of who she is or her abilities.
She's beautiful with very long white-blond hair, large green eyes, and a pale complexion. She's a bit of a bookworm, and has a thing for Jane Austen novels.
She's painfully shy, so she always looks startled. She's short-ish (5'4") and has just begun attending high school.
(This is a character of mine from a story I'm working on. Hope you don't mind. ^_^)

Then I tried Anonymous':
Wilson perpetually lives in a half-way house for mentally impaired and has a withered torso. He can't find or get a job, but he acts as a sort of sunbeam for the employees and other participants. During the day, Wilson walks up and down street blocks and tries the handles of parked automobiles he passes. He's not sure why he does this (his doctor will say something about Aussbergers compounded with ...while looking perplexed) but it brings Wilson great joy whenever a car alarm goes off. Wilson wears cast-offs and green gloves.

Tomorrow I am planning on mostly being home, so I'll get more doodles done.
