New Blog

Hi! I know it's been a really long time since I wrote anything; that's because I've started a new blog! It's called pencil skirt, and I am going to post my art there, and it is also where I will be blogging in general from now on.

I will post a link there to this old blog, in case anyone wants to go read some of my old blogs. But all new stuff will be posted there, so go check it out!

Supernatural ANIME!

So Supernatural is my favorite television show. I bought the first three seasons back when I was still in college (god I'm old now) and watched them all in about a week during winter break. I've been watching it since, somewhat sporadically, mostly on DVD. They're on season seven now, (starting September 2011), but that's not what I'm excited about.


Which I need to buy now.

I start my life drawing class on Monday! As you can tell from the exclamation point, I am very excited, though slightly weirded out about the fact that I'll have to draw naked people. But if I'm going to become a world-famous artist, I guess I'll have to get used to it.

Also, I said I'd scan and upload some of my drawings, so here is a picture I drew of Kiki, our cat:

Yes she looks that disgruntled in real life.

Maureen Inc.

So Maureen (and her husband Jake) have started a business! The website is here. The company is called RedBone Development (Redbone, like the dog. Because they have one of those dogs, named Fiona). They create websites for small businesses that are "easy to update, manage and grow along with their company."

I hope they get lots and lots of business and make lots of amazing websites! Which they will, because they are very talented.

Sarah quit/was fired and now work is terribly boring. I definitely saw it coming, she'd been talking about leaving for weeks, but now I have no one to have lunch with and I am lonely.

I've tried having lunch with Kristina, the only other coworker who is my age, but she makes me run lunch-errands with her (the bank, the gas station), and that is just not something I want to do during the 30 minutes I have for lunch. I can hardly stand to run my own errands, let alone another person's.

So I'm working on the lunch situation. Though as I've recently decided that I'm fat, I might try to stop eating lunch altogether. And when that inevitably results in me, ravenous at 2:30pm, raiding our work kitchen and eating four chocolate bars, then maybe I can start just packing a lunch and eating in my office.

I have started counting calories, actually. I guess that's how I know summer is coming-I start thinking about having to wear a bikini and I stop eating mashed potatoes. Though maybe the way the weather is this year, I can keep eating as much as I want, as I don't really see myself going to the beach in the rain/overcast chilliness we've been having lately.

Hello Again

Wow it's been forever. Guess I've been busy, but if I'm being really honest I've just been boring and there isn't much to write about.

I found a new favorite TV show--it's called River Monsters and it's about a biologist/angler who hunts crazy fish that may or may not be living in the lake/river in your backyard. Just sayin', they're all freshwater fish-monsters. They might even find their way into your bathtub.

My art class is going pretty well, I'm totally going to scan/post something eventually, when I draw something good enough to be seen by real people. I've been using my tablet too, and am drawing a River Monsters inspired aquatic scene. Well, actually, the thing I'm drawing is obviously in an ocean. But come on, it's all fish anyway, right?

Sarah's First Day

Today was Sarah's first day working with me! I think she thought it was boring. I thought it was boring. But it was nice having her at work. We ate girl scout cookies and she proof-read SCL stuff while I wrote handouts. =/

Maybe life will be more exciting when we start that survey.
