Do I Really Have To Eat Another Beef Jerky Sundae? *groan*
"Pomegranate" or "palm of granite," which one? SLAP!
Well, I've been blogging for three solid months now. What have I learned? Well, I've learned to stay up really late every night. I'm reading every night. I'm sleeping on the couch every night. Of course, I was hoping that writing in the blog daily would help inspire me to work on my novel, which is continuing to flounder...
I have enjoyed doing this blog, though. I like posting the Favorite Scenes, and the book/movie reviews. The Daily trivia stuff too. And the comics.
That reminds me; here's the latest one...
As you can see, I'm continuing the "dream" theme... the idea being that you can tell a lot about a person by what they dream about, good and bad. Of course, though these characters are all based on people I know, what they dream about has not been made known to me... I'm just basically taking educated guesses. Still, it's a butt-load of fun to make them. Though increasingly time-consuming, as I mentioned last night. No promises on the final strip of this sequence, but it should be much easier to draw. Only Carl and Rollo remain, and I know exactly what I want to do with them.
The family went to Sea World today, and of course, they all loved it. They took lots of pics. I'll find a good pic or two and post it up tomorrow - so you have THAT to look forward to!!!
Went into the rug shop today. Things are tense. We'll see what tomorrow holds. 'Nuff said.
On the plus side, I stopped by Chipotle on the way home and ate a burrito the size of a human head. It has been with me ever since, lo, these many hours, sitting like a stone in the depths of me. And I stopped by the book store also, to spend the rest of my gift card. I bought a series from an(other) author I heard highly praised online, named Glen Cook. He has a series called The Chronicles of the Black Company that is supposed to rock. I bought a single volume with the first three books in the series included in it. I hope it's good!
I'll let you know.
Todayve In History: April 2
- April 2, 1914: Sir Alec Guinness was born! (You know... the old guy that played the original Obi Wan Kenobi... yeah, that guy. Well, Star Trek got some love tonight, it's only fair I throw a bone to Star Wars, too...)
- April 2, 1877: The first Easter Egg roll to be held on the White House lawn. (Afterward, President Hayes ate 75 marshmallow chicks and vomited.)
- April 2, 1954: Plans to build Disneyland were first announced. (Please don't start singing "It's A Small World"... please!!!! NOOO!!!!!)
Well, I'm gonna go polish off some Piranha projects (obscure pun, right there!) , then read, and go the heck to bed.
Until tomorrow, remember, the hardest part of ice skating... is the ice.
