It Stinks

Dedicated to Those Houses on the Way to Work

(To the tune of "Christmas is Coming...")

Christmas is over
the geese are all quite thin
you've left up all your Christmas lights
now take them in!
If you don't take down
that wreath'n'junk
someone will take them down for you
then you'll have go buy
new ones next year, boo-hoo-hoo!


(With thanks to laurie_robey for the idea and the punchline...)

Mmm ... Art Supplies...

Thanks to the VIP card:
Prismacolor Pencil Set of 120           $ 93.83
Prismacolor Art Stix Set of 48          $ 41.39
Col-Erase Colored Pencils Set of 24     $  8.77
                                        $ 13.98 +shipping
                                        $157.97 total

Considering that the local Pla-Za was charging $135 for the Prismacolor pencils alone, I'd say that's a pretty good deal!

I have a set of Derwent pencils, but they're too hard; I'm hoping the Prismacolors will be easier to use, particularly in sketchbooks. Markers make nice, vivid colors on bristol, and blend beautifully, but I discovered to my dismay at FC that MARKERS + SKETCHBOOKS = BLEED ALL OVER THE PAGE! *cry*

Clean, polished original artwork is still a long way away for me, alas, but having the right tools sure makes a big difference!

A Change of Plans

Well, as of last night, I'm not gaming this weekend because I will instead be taking a break-of-dawn flight to LaGuardia airport tomorrow morning, where I hope to be picked up by smrgol_t_kirin, camstone, and lowen_kind, at which point we'll all drive up to kamau_d_lyon's place. Then, after a night on the floorboards, I'll be riding back down Sunday afternoon. (At least, I hope it's in the afternoon, I need to work on Monday!) That throws a kink into the weekend plans, to say the least, but if you've got to have a kink, this one's a good one.

Or something like that.

Anyway, this calls for a revised Collapse )
Gonna be a packed week! Think I'll move the counselor appt. on Thursday back a week.

EDIT: Linked to the wrong Smrgol. Like, really wrong.

A cool thing lifted from mooncat: Honk!

On another note, I hear Martha Stewart was convicted. Well, not having been in the jury, I can't say with any authority, but I thought for sure I saw some torches and pitchforks, and heard someone from the press call out, "She turned me into a newt!"

I don't like the woman much, but likeability shouldn't be a condition for legal action, says the little voice in my head.

Ah well, off to pack!
