My cat just hurled on my sketchbook. I think that's the lowest review I've ever gotten from anyone. o_O

Well, what do you know.

"Congratulations! Your entry has been selected to appear in this week's issue of the Neopian Times."

Now I can safely redeem my time spent on that site this past week by educating hundreds if not thousands of young malleable minds about the evil joys of cryptography. Heheh =)

I'm probably the last person to have come across this gem, but...

"Every 10 seconds, somewhere on this earth, there is a woman giving birth to a child. She must be found and stopped."

I also like:

"All those who believe in psychokinesis, raise my hand."

News kibbles & bits :: 13:22

Kibble: I'm still alive as I'm typing this. Really. I finally realized that my absences from my site aren't due to some sinister or nefarious hidden motives, but to the simple urge to be alone with my life once in a while. =D

Bit: Finally finished the dog portrait. The last touches really brought the thing to life, but unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo. Oops. Dave (client) was very happy with it, and for once I will give no disclaimers: he ought to be cos the thing was good. =D

Kibble: The mystery puzzle at Neopets is finally over, and I'm glad, cos I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame. Ow! Ow! Wanna crit my article on decoding alphabet ciphers? =)

Bit: Tiernan's moving to Oaxaca in 6 days. Whouaaaaaaaaaa. Sniff. Lick wound. =(

I can't seem to get on the forums again. I love them, I love what everybody says, but... there's some weeks, it's plain "don't wanna" and there's nothing I can do to make myself.


I can open my windows for the first time since spring, when the guy who repainted the house then didn't bother being careful and painted them shut. Finally had the handyman come out and razor them open.

Feels soooooooooo nice. Dallas in the fall is so fine.

Companies that force intrusive marketing questions on you to add to or continue their services, and justify it by saying "It's to serve you better."

Heehee :: 14:35

So far I've gotten about 30 mails on Neo about the gallery art... My favorite so far:

"I love ur pitchers u could make a comic are put him in a beutee contees"

This picture just creeped the hell out of me.

woohoo and blah dee blah :: 13:13


Finally got a picture competition trophy on Neopets, after a year or so. True, the site is full of kids. True, I'm 33. True, I used Bryce 3D. But still.

In other news: nothing. I'm in limbo and trying not to fall off the face of the planet. Not succeeding very well, either. Hmf.

Ive been developing a nefarious pattern since I came back from France. Ive become unruly to myself.

The pattern is that more and more shoulds are piling up in my head (I should clean up my house, get my finances together, call a million people back, paint more, cook more); while I engage in less and less useful pursuits (play neopets, watch dvds, read books Ive already read.)

So I look one way and see things I dont want to do, and I look the other and am unhappy for wasting so much time.

Very 4th grade, innit? :-\

lil tiny brush with fame :: 15:23

So last night R & I go to Terrilli's to see some of his mates play. As I went to the bar and ordered two beers, a fella with the remnants of a large drinking binge in front of him told the bartender to put my brews on his tab. I was a bit non-plussed, thinking perhaps he was hitting on me and hadn't noticed I was there with my better half. Turns out the guy was just having a grand ole time and was buying everybody drinks. The bartender told us he's ex-Cowboys cornerback Kevin Smith. Sweet! Talked to him for a while (not about football.) Nice guy.

I was smiling about this tiny brush with fame when someone else told us that Steven Tyler had just left 10 minutes before.

Weird night. :-)
