Finished my sketchbook! By my calculations, it takes me just under seven months to do in a 100 page sketchbook. Damn, I'm slow!! No, waitasec, that's like a picture every 2.1 days. (Yes I had to use the calculator for that.) That's not too bad. Course, there's like a week where I won't draw and then there's the nights where I draw five or six pages. :P So it averages out to one page every two days. Geez. When you think about that, it's pretty spiffy.

And out of 100 pages, I see that only 22 of them were posted on my web-page. What were the test of them? I can fit the rest into three groups: Stuff I won't ever post, stuff that isn't finished and stuff that's Skikardi-related. But I'm tired of not showing people my lovely world, so.... >;) It's coming.

Yah! Nox added me into his hilarious snowballing Andromeda fan-fic on the message board. Ha ha, I'm a Vedran special agent! Sweeet! :D I never used to get why people were so thrilled to have pictures drawn of them/their alter egos or be written about but thanks to Lox and Nox (okay- that's an odd coincidence with the names...), now I KNOW!!! It's so much fun. I can't wait for more!

I just made the most inane background for my newly polished 'About Me' page. Ha ha! It's so ugly, it's beautiful! ^__^

I could swear this chick at work has a crush on me. I'm serious. She goes out of her way to be around me and do nice things for me and doesn't do 'em for anybody else. This is puzzling since I THOUGHT she was engaged earlier on this year... I hope I don't have to turn down another well-meaning soul. The last time it ended in mutual bitterness. That's not fun at all. I hope I'm wrong. On the other hand, I should know by now to trust my intuition... Agh! Second guessing bad. I hope I'm wrong anyway.

You know what rules? Not working tomorrow so I can stay up all night rules. And candles rule too. Candlelight preeeetty... But eBay's jewellry section rules even more. I just wish there were more yellow topaz out there (for cheap). I have a vested interest in yellow topaz. The history of the much-sought-after yellow topaz:

January 29th, 1997
Young, rather inept but overly imaginative little me starts writin' a story. Nothing special, I do this all the time. 'Cept this one didn't stop growing. And it wouldn't go away. It didn't fade, it got brighter. It got bigger. It grew up. A while ago: I decided Toni (da main character) would have her birthday on Jan 29th; it makes sense. Being a somewhat flakey kitty, I check out the astrology for said day. Jan 29 makes Toni an Aquarius. Funny thing is, Aquarius fits her personality. Toni's personified in the story sometimes as 'Gold'; Aquarian gemstone is topaz. There you have it. My life: a series of eerie cool coicidences.

Or are they...?

Mmmm... spending money I don't have... ^__^ What better feeling.

Mission successful. Server restored! Yay! Now I can update ma page. :) ...Omigod! It's been over two weeks since I updated last! Where the heck'd the time go?! What did I do with it? Aaaaaahhhh!! Time management crisis!! Comrade Asche told me highlighters can solve many problems like this in college. I'm going to rely on her methods since as a pre-med genius, she sure knows what she's doing. I have a mentor. ^__^

Comandeering Raptor's computer while I wait for him to call and walk me through fixing the crashed server. Urk!

Raptor's gone to Toronto. The Night Mare has gone to JAPAN. I'm going to work in four minutes. What a world, what a world.

My old German teacher sent my brother and I a postcard from Berlin. This is strange since neither of us were exactly model students while we were in her class. She was a nut, but I think that was mainly because she had a chaotic split class. The card is a photo of downtown Berlin, including Kaiser Wilhelm's Gedachtniskirche (sp?), in ruins, and the new church beside it, a giant neon Chrysler sign, an equally glowing Lotto building... and, typically, a big happy tower crane in the background.

My Characters Made Me Do It (Episode #34)

Crap. I want purple Doc Martens. Godawful expensive, extremely difficult to find but oh-so-funky purple Docs. A long time ago, I started drawing Toni wearing these clunky purple shoes, eventually figured they must be Doc Martens, wondered if they actually came in purple, found out they did recently and... uh oh. Is that MasterCard giggling with malicious glee??

Yup, it's official. I'm car-obsessed. This is the LAST thing I would have ever guessed I'd get into. Sure, machines have always been fascinating, mostly airplanes, but in an artsy sense. I like how they're shaped, how it's function and form altogether. But now... now I want to know about how they work and how to fix them. Gawd, I'd be such a German car owner: kiss it goodnight, name it, spoil it, and if I got into a crash, I'd probably be more pissed about my beautiful car than whether I was hurt or not. *sigh* Oh dear...

The time has come. I am ready. My goal by the end of the summer is to have my learner's license. :) I want to drive! It happened all of a sudden, and then I find myself shopping eBay for cars, learning what constitutes good miles per gallon and discussing sports cars with my dad and my brother! Ah! Crazy!

My ultimate goal of course, is this:

Yes.... my dream car is a 1981 Delorean, to be repainted a vibrant metallic purple and loved to death. Oil changed every three months, tires rotated on a regular basis, funny knocking noises causing me to wring my hands and fret outside the mechanic shop... *shakes head* See what's happened to me?!
That's my baby. :) Pros of owning a Delorean:
1. You can't get more eccentric than that.
2. Chassis made of stainless steel. Heavy car, but nearly indestructible.
3. Gets 23- 28 miles to the gallon. (That's good.)
4. Gull-wing doors. ^__^
5. If I painted mine purple, it'd be the only purple Delorean in the world. There was only about 8600 made and they're all silver.
6. Leather interior. Niiiiice!

Cons of owning a Delorean:
1. Finding parts for it when something breaks.
2. Being hunted down and lynched by the Delorean Motor Association for painting it purple.
3. Pealing yourself off the leather interior in the summertime. Yow!

Oh yeah, I also have a job interview today, at the Keyman locksmith place in the same mall as Winners. I'm not quitting Winners, I just need a second job. I hope this one works out because then it would take me like a minute to run from Winners to Keyman for shifts in the same day. Sweeet!
