Dinner and a movie

















Anatomical blooper:

Here's a little piece on Nepali cuisine. Here are some portraits of people in Nepal. The movie we saw was Bon Cop, Bad Cop. It was both bon and bad.

You have outdone yourself! enjoyed this so much!

What a fantastic outing! I loved that movie, I'm curious as to what you found bad. A little snippet of Canadian culture for you. I've lived both in Montreal and Toronto so I found the movie fascinating.

Stunning illustrations as always Caroline, your talent is endless.

Hi Marianne (LI?), Bobbie and Sacred Suzie. Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I really worked hard on this one.

re: the film
Canada fascinates me, so I loved the cultural part -- the schism between the two provinces. The dialogue was excellent and hilarious. However, I objected to the amount of violence, especially when it crossed the line into gratuitous. I also really disliked seeing a sadistic man kidnapping and terrorizing a little girl in a movie that is billed as a comedy. But overall, I liked the movie a lot. I recommend it to anyone.

Hi Caroline -
This was a beautiful adventure. I loved the colorful wide shot of downtown. The restaurant looks so good! Glad you had a good time at the festival.

Suzy said...

I also like the perspective of looking up State Street.

If you like Himal Chuli, check out Dobhan. Same family, delicious food on the near east side.

I want to go to that restaurant. You make it look so inviting. Oh, and I love the 'out take.' Very funny!

I feel like I had dinner with y'all! I certainly wish I were close enough to try out that restaurant. Very lovely post, once again. :)

CB - these are amazing!!! david l. just looked and was surprised at the level of your talent. the one of the front door is like a photograph only better because it is filtered through your loving eyes. it's so alive. let's make a date to go there this summer. we always get the same thing. tarkari, brown rice and dal. did you know if you can't decide which tarkari to get, you can ask for two small portions of each? and have you tried their coriander sauce?

thanks so much for posting these. wow!

I love the blooper. I can see why you didn't use it, Laura's hand was blocking her face.

That food sounds so exotic. I hope it was good.

Sandpiper said...

This is so cute! I feel like I've been out on the town with you. Now, where can I find such good food around here?

Ginnie said...

For some reason I thought you'd moved to the "boonies" from the East coast, but you've been able to find some fascinating places. Thanks for sharing them with us.

That sounds like a dinner I would love. Your illustrations are wonderful, as always. I love the writing that you include with each one. I always feel as if I were there too. That's special.

Mary said...

Never a need for snapshots here, Crayons! I actually felt like I was along for the ride...what a great evening!

joared said...

Gee, what a unique blog you have, telling your story with pictures! Very nice. Wish I was that talented. My husband could draw well. Would have been fun to see if he'd undertake such an activity. Wonder how long it takes you to prepare these?

Sacred Suzie said...

Thank you Caroline, I should have known of all people you would understand the brave and powerful step in naming personal fear. I'm hoping a true shift can now finally take place inside me.

Holy crap, I can't believe this is the first time I've visited your blog. It's amazing! I've been reading and enjoying your comments on other blogs, and I'm glad I finally made it here.

Hi, I've spent the day roaming through people's blogs and found yours. I'm glad I did, it's terrific! I love your drawing style. And right now I'm feeling pretty hungry...

Dahlink,
This is a delight. You come up with the most singular subject matter. Excellent use of color. The whole series of images pleases the eye. Why did you two skip dessert and Nepali tea?

Marie said...

Caroline, you are awesome. I enjoy your blog so much. I'm short on words tonight, but not on appreciation!

T.R. said...

Oh what I would give to have been a guest at that table. I arrived home yesterday and waiting for me was that beautiful note thank you!!! I love that you still write letters and post them. It definitely made my day!

Have you made a hard copy book of your work, yet? Fun outing, I love traveling through your world and pictures.
