I will have to start remembering to take my sketchbook with me more. The waiter was baffled that someone would ask for a piece of paper at a restaurant. That and we literally sitting right in between two other couples. And they both gave me weird looks when I asked for paper as well as while I was drawing... I really didn't care what they thought. I just wished that I had my sketch book with me so that I didn't have to draw on itty bitty pieces of paper.
(by the way, I am a HORRIBLE speller, so disregard any misspellings in my writing. ;)
