It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.
I know it's been a while since I last blogged. I know, I know, I know. I sincerely apologize to the two or three of you who regularly read this magnificent publication. I shall endeavor to be more timely in my postings in the future.
We are making a mural in the high school! 'We' being Corey, Rebecca, and I. It promises to be a very big, very cool, very visible mural. Cat knows when we'll actually finish the thing, but hopefully swift progress will be made before the summer comes to a close.
Talk so small I can't remember ever saying a word.
Today Izzy ate a small bug that had gotten into the house. He played with it for a bit and then gulp! it was gone. Of course we praised him for his hunting prowess. These are the sorts of things you must encourage.
The family is gone to see Road to Perdition. I didn't particularly want to go, so here I am. Blogging. Yes, that is the way of it.
My friend and I stick to the tired couches Please pass the time I found a dime under the corner cushion Wishing it was someplace else And so do I So do I
I got the MassArt info today, and apparently my electives are Comic Book Art and Surreal Painting. My first choices. I am quite pleased.
Hum. What else has been happening lately?
Since I blogged last I have seen The Bourne Identity and Men in Black II. I enjoyed both, although Men in Black was, it seemed, much too short. I thoroughly enjoyed Matt Damon in The Bourne Identity though. A great deal of enjoyment. Yes indeed.
Samurai Jack is a most excellent show. I recommend it. It's on 7:30 pm on Fridays and 9:30 pm on Saturdays. Saturday is today. If you're not doing anything in particular at 9:30, turn on Cartoon Network and share the love.
I hate waking up early. I really do.
Heading out to Portland tomorrow. Why? I have no idea. It's just another one of those times when my family gets these inexplicable migratory urges, and heads out to some random location in New England for a day. This little outing will be followed by the trip to Pittsburg, which promises to be a most glorious 10 hour ride. I will pack a great many batteries for my CD player. This is the secret to any successful road trip in my family.
I got a good idea for a new painting the other day. Maybe I'll work on it later today.
I adore Adobe Photoshop Elements. It is my friend. I can do all sorts of interesting things with it. And now since I have figured out how to get Woodrow to scan without too much trouble and complaining on his part, the photo editing capabilities of my computer are truly magnificent to behold. If only you were here to behold them.
I do hope that you are reading the webcomic Death to the Extremist. It is unaccountably interesting. I mean, by rights it shouldn't be. Yet it is. I find myself eagerly awaiting the next installment. I dunno, the appeal cannot be explained by any rational laws, but there it is. So go and check it out.
Magritte is cool.
Has anyone else ever heard of The Dambuilders? 'Cause I think I want their CD. Hm. Wonder when I can get down to Newbury Comics.
Did you know that I own Miami Dolphins checkers? Did you? Well, I do. So now you know.
The other day Jess, Kate, Liz, and I went mini golfing. Kind of. We got pretty bored of it after a few holes, so we just starting throwing the golf balls into the holes, and kicking them, and hitting each other's balls, and such. Then Liz hit my golf ball into the water, where it disappeared without a trace, despite the fact that it was red, so you would think that it would be easily seen in the water. But it wasn't. Anyways, then we drove home and Liz got her finger caught in this little hook thing on Kate's car and she couldn't get it out at all. So it was pretty funny. Then we went to my house with the intention of playing ping pong, but we were all too tired so we just collapsed in my room. Good times.
I hate playing chess with the computer. It always beats me, and then I am sad.
On the other hand, I like playing Hexxagon with the computer. I can beat it sometimes, and then I am glad.
Well, there's yer blog. Be happy, all. I will blog again at a later date.
