( Onward! )
( With interesting results...big pictures under here )
This was on the only message board I still really frequent, Whitechapel. There's a Draw Each Other thread there, and I've gotten a couple of things done with my pictures, but so far, this one is my favorite:
It's by Yoav Segal, and he's awesome. You can see more of his stuff at http://yoavsegal.com.
You can see more of the Whitechapel crew's awesomeness (and I mean that) right here in the Draw Each Other thread. I got the first contribution in on the first page, so I feel slightly accomplished there. And I managed to get Paul Sizer to make happy noises, which is awesome, because I love his work.
Shit, I have to go to work. Bye!
I'm happy with the layout (for now anyway). The new size of the body is just right for the width of the comic. Actually, the next one and the ones following should be just a couple dozen pixels slimmer. All I really want is to get the sidebar back to where it's supposed to be, instead of at the bottom of the page, where it's hanging around like a vestigial tail.
I'll wait while you Google "vestigial tail" and then yell at me.
So anyway, does anyone have a clue what I'm talking about, or could give me a link to something that could help me out? I'm tired and cranky, and I'm likely to fuck it up worse if I keep messing with it tonight.
"I unwaveringly support gay rights, gay marriage, gay adoption, and gay bake sales. Because rainbow sprinkles are delicious."
Including one message from a concerned person wondering if liking rainbow sprinkles made him gay. I replied to him and told him that it only made him gay if he was eating them off another dude.
God I love being me sometimes. :p

Mom picked up an Asus Eee PC for like 200 bucks, and I have to admit, it's not too shabby. I never have been a Linux fan, but I'm getting used to it. It has fuck all for storage capacity, but that's ok. I managed to resurrect my external hard drive, and all its contents. Turns out it wasn't bricked after all, just Serenity decided she didn't want to fool with it anymore. She always was a snob when it came to peripherals. Oh well. It's a 500 GB drive, so this tiny little laptop will do just fine with that added to it. And I do mean tiny. I could hollow out my hardcover copy of Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix and hide it in there.
( Wherein I update you on the last five or six months of my life )
I'm not sure whether to pat myself on the back or what. *laughs* Did one of you guys submit it? Cause I sure didn't.
ETA: Oh yeah, looking helps! It was cevaq. Thanks, doll! :D
So I was rearranging stuff in my wallet last night and found the card again. I noticed they have a website, so I went to look. Wow. I'm impressed. They do great work, and the website is slick as satin.
Go look at my aunt's pretty site! :p
I was also a little envious, just because, well, I do that. But then, when I think about it, Teresa's always been really into photography. I remember when I was really little she used to take all these pictures of everything with this camera with a huge fucking lens. And then she got married, had a couple of kids, and that was it. Then she and her first husband divorced, and a few years later, she married Rick. I like Rick, but he's a bit odd. Not in a bad way, just odd in a different way than me. Next thing you know, they're starting to do weddings and such. And Teresa basically went from having a hobby back in the late 70's/early 80's, to nothing for ten years or so, to starting a fairly successful photography studio.
To top all that off, they both have worked as production management at Toyota for over 20 years, and Teresa was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a few years ago. But she doesn't let it bother her. She knew she was sick for over a year before she even told anyone other than Rick, and that was just because her "bad day" symptoms were getting to be more than she could handle. So that's pretty badass.
Now what I can't understand is how she and my mother came from the same woman, and yet are so vastly different. Weird.
First of all, the link itself: http://www.cruelcocktease.com/
Hilarious in itself, yes? Oh, it gets better. This bitch is making money off this shit, too. More power to her, I guess, if people are dumb enough to give it to her. *laughs*
I mentioned Muxtape in my last post. I played with it last night, just tossing up a few of the tracks I've been listening to lately. I love putting together playlists and such. And when I was in high school, I looooved making mix tapes. Whenever I would be at a party, nine times out of ten I'd end up taking over the stereo and playing dj.
So here's my mix, which I named Bitchy Lou Who. *snort* Check it out. It's very easy to play, just click on a song. Click on it again to pause or stop. Also, you might want to listen to the last song on the list. I guarantee it's something you've not heard before. ;)*
*HINT - I'm on the list. :D
( I think this is a testament to just how juvenile my sense of humor can get: )
Edit: Code was fucked. I fixed it. :p
Here's some of the nifty things I've found today:
The World's Two Most Beautiful Vegetables
Fractal Broccoli is utterly fascinating. I'd love to try it, just to see if it tastes any different. I'm not that impressed with the purple cauliflower. I've seen that before.
An 8 year old's reaction to Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy.
It's funny cause it's true.
Recipe for Pecan Pie Cookies
A "walk of shame" kit
Oh, I wish I'd found this earlier. Ashley would have gotten a different Christmas gift. :p
Mike's Amazing Cakes
I don't think I would ever want to eat them, but just marvel at them forever.
Descrition of the service as on the site:
"CreateSpace on Demand Publishing is simple: we manufacture physical products when customers order so no pre-built inventory is needed. Through our service, you can sell DVDs, CDs, and books, for a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing, while maintaining more control over your materials.
With our services, you can make your books, music and video available to millions of customers by selling on Amazon.com, the CreateSpace Shop, and on your own website with a customized eStore."
That's very interesting, that is.
Clothes, shoes, etc - Everything on the site is $15. That's my kind of shopping right there. It physically pains me to pay full price for clothes. The Target clearance racks are my best friend. Ross is awesome. But you will never catch me in a department store or boutique unless they're having a super-mega-blowout-of-the-century sale. Because I suck at being female and would rather spend my money on stuff that requires electricity, batteries, or a device in which to play the disc. :p
