For Here Or To Go? [You Purty Rat]

The coffee shop where I used to surreptitiously draw people waiting for their lattes is open again!  Hallelujah.  Here’s one of this AM’s customers.

Isn’t she lovely?

Dudes in Line, Day Four: She-Dudes

Of course, girls need their coffee too…

The girl on the left really did look like some kind of bizarre living update of an Egyptian wall painting — all dramatic angles (and, let’s just say it — a great bag).  She seemed sort of miserable, perhaps because her cappuccino took six hours to make.  The one on the right was her polar opposite:  low maintenance and suspiciously happy.   Based on mood assessment and taking into consideration the latest polling data, I’ll put Ms. Red Bag in the conservative camp; Lil’ Miss Sunshine with the Dems.

Thus concludes this rip-roaring week of Dudes in Line.  Check back tomorrow for the next installment of Turning of the Worm:  The Book of Bones and an announcement about the next Thing of the Week!

Dudes in Line: Day Three

A few notes on this particular Dude in Line:

First of all, this guy was incredibly tall.  And I am used to tall men (hi, Dad!).  His height was staggering.

Second:  He was wearing the longest tie I’ve ever seen.  Can you buy ties in the Big & Tall stores?  It was seriously like 5 feet of of blinding blue silk.  The blue was intense, perhaps only because of the tie’s sheer length.  Then he takes out his cellphone:  it’s the exact same color blue.   So it’s apparently his signature color.  Diagnosis: Democrat.

Dudes in Line: Day Two

Someone’d better tell the Palin campaign (because apparently she’s gone rogue) that they should really look into being a little more subtle about how they dress their spies…

I mean, this guy was just rubbing our commie faces in it.

Thing of the Week: Dudes in Line

Greetings from a coffee shop somewhere in Communist Country!  Unless you fell and hit your head recently (in which case, I’m sorry — get well soon!) you know that Virginia is a swing state, which means it’s neither red nor blue, but a really lovely shade of lavender.  This week I’ll be bringing you my own brand of reportage:  Taking the pulse of this squirrelly populace by drawing them while they’re waiting for their espresso drinks.

Here’s today’s feature:

Um, yeah.  If this guy isn’t planning on voting for Obama I’m eating my hat — hell, I’ll eat all of my hats.  This is no small feat as I recently realized I have an embarrassing amount. 

Tomorrow, a things get interesting when a representative from the Great [Really] Northwest orders a latte.
