me

Rrrrgh

ooookay, I crashed. @_@
Was still crazed enough to frighten a few people in the band hall before school, but I wound down during homeroom.
So very exhausted. Sick to my stomach. Head is absolutely killing me from being so tense for the past few days. I'm still twitchy, oddly enough, but now very very tired.
Hrm. Odd.
My hand hurts. My nails were digging into it for the better part of the weekend. There are also numerous spots where it was cut by the kitty or bruised as I hit something
Oh dear. My multi-media teacher just told kids that to turn off the grid on Fireworks, you had to close the file and re-open it.
This did not work. So I looked through the toolbar and discovered that clicking on View --> Grid would toggle the grids on and off. I then informed the class of this.
The very next item on the list of instructions she was reading from told of this.
Mays: "Now draw horizontal lines. Use the line tool. It will not make straight lines unless you press the shift key."
Me: (quietly) "Actually, it always makes straight lines... the shift key just makes them perfectly horizontal or vertical..."
Someone: "Horizontal! Like the horizon!"
Someone else: "Look! I made the prime meridian!"
Me: *mutter mutter* Prime Meridian is vertical... VERTICAL.... *twitch*
I fear for the future of education...

Quizzage. I could not resist.



You want to be famous cartoonist and probably have the abilities to do it to, but you're to damn scared to try. That's not entirely bad, cause people seem to like you and while some of you work does seemed to always get understood the way you would want it too, you still maintain a pretty decent popularity, and that's all that matters, right? Of course, but be careful, you are always going overboard with your art cause it's your favorite past time. In fact you do Fusion D, Sub-Culture, and

*snicker*
I <i>WISH</i> I was that pretty. o.o
OMG

"My precioussss..."

Came home.
My baby (read: computer) was missing. The monitor sat there looking lonely. My scanner looked equally dismal, and I swear if my tablet had eyes, it would have been sobbing over it's missing companion.
Turns out my uncle deposited it somewhere-or-other for repairs.
While I am thankful that he took the time out of his schedule to help me get my compy back in line, I do rather wish he'd waited to see if maybe I could try hooking it up to this comp or even my dad's in a desperate attempt to recover my files. As is, I can only hope the folks at Circuit City know what they are doing and I get my precious back intact.

It will be back in two weeks.
*tears out hair*

This computer hates any and all FTP outside of the MS DOS-prompt sort with a passion, for reasons I have never been able to understand. I find I get along much better with this computer if I just let it go about it's evil little ways and try not to bother it too much.
For reasons also unknown to me, I can never manage to FTP to Keenspace through the DOS prompt. -_-; I am going to make a sad little attempt to at least post a message through my dad's computer... I fear for my life, however, as it hates the Internet.
So here we have a problem. There will be no ML updates for a full two weeks. This would be slightly less of a problem if I could at least promise a flood of new pages once those two weeks are up. Unfortunately, I also have no scanner and (while it's not necessary it helps beyond all reason) no tablet.
So the best I can do is ink all the drawings and color like a madwoman once I have my hardware back where it belongs.

In the meantime, once I have at least the next six pages or so inked and ready for scannage, I intend to see if I can't get some work done on some other projects. SA, CG3, and Infinity seem to be at the top of the list at the moment. So yeah.
Figures, as soon as I no longer have any way of displaying any of my work, I get back some semblance of a creative drive. Argh. Fate mocks me. It sits on it's ass and laughs at me sometimes, I swear it does.

I suppose I should be thankful this downtime occurred when Keen was going through another server hiccup instead of a time when there might have actually been a lot of readers.
Shame, though. By the 11th - before Keenspace went down like a cheap hooker (I love that phrase and use it whenever possible, thankyouverymuch!) - I'd had about 3,100 visits for the month. ;_; Pooooo.
Eh. Time to get to work on them thar comic-thingies.

o.o *peers out into the masses*

just added a few people to my friends list. I realized they'd added me, so I figured 'heck, more humanlings to amuse me when I am bored and constantly refreshing this accursed page!'
People like vebelfetzer and driftingfocus who post a lot but post such fun stuff keep me quite amused. And the sheer number of people on my friends list keeps them from singlehandedly overwhelming the page.
And then there are people like ravensmother or pussinboots who don't post quite so often but always have something interesting to say.
And then of course there's all those cartoonists I stalk... ocarina, damonk13, darkelm, bunny03, jenndolari, scixual.... and many many more.

You all amuse me so. ~_~ *purr*
So, um... to amuse you...
The only picture anyone else has ever drawn of me. From emperor_boy!
Fear the cleavage...
*ahem* yes. Cleavage of doom. Go gnaw on Tish... byahaha.
I scamper off now to Kroger or some such place to purchase Diet Sprite. (Most worthless drink ever! No caffeine, no sugar, no calories, no nothing! Ain't it grand)
