Wishing everyone a blessed and happy Easter.
NewnessNew year new pics.
I am no good at this journal stuff. I've never been very good at talking about myself much.
The sunrise pictures I added are from last October at the jersey shore (ship bottom nj on long beach island). It was one of the few sunrises we had this past autumn.
The two winter ones are from this past week in central Ohio. Been shoveling alot of snow. The two pics are just from the first day of snow.
Happy Birthday to me
Okay, I'm a day early. It's tomorrow.
Got a little something to play with from my friend Swannie so I got a three month subscription to dA to try out all the bells and whistles and see if I should start saving to join for a full year.
Wish I knew CSS to make a nice journal. lol But I don't even understand html and I've yet to figure out how to work with frontpage.
Well, I have a bit of time to figure it all out.
Word SearchThis comes from Moonbeam13's http://moonbeam13.deviantart.com/journal/16916936/ journal (she got it from someone else who got it from someone else and so on and so on).
I love her word searches for finding deviant art on site. Just looking at hers has shown me stuff I'd never had seen without it. So I wanted to try this questionaire search to see what I came up with.
Since I've no subscription yet, I have to link to the art I find.
1) Answer the questions below
2) Take each answer and type it into dA search box
3) Take a deviation from the first page of results (may use ' popular' or 'newest' ) and post thumb (for subscribers) or link (non-subscribers)
4) You can't copy the persons answers who posted this before you
1.The age you will be on your next birthday: 43

False PositiveFollowing up to my journal yesterday.
Everything is good.
My father is fine. His arteries are fine and dandy. The stress test was a false positive. His blood pressure is mildly high and his aortic valve has some calcification (but looks to be opening and closing fine). So the doc will reccommend to the gp that he get an ecocardiogram.
It was a long day. Got to the hospital at 9am for my mother's appointment. (All is well with her too. Her mri and cat scan follow up to her kidney operation last year was all clear as were all her other tests this month. Yay!) Then my father got the time wrong for his test. He said he was supposed to be there at 11:00 but he didn't need to be there until 12:30 for a 1:30 test. BUT - he didn't get the test until 3:30. Ugh. Alot of waiting and waiting and not having anything to eat or drink (Dad couldn't and we didn't want to eat or drink infront of him). It was over in 1/2 hour (no time to eat or drink lol) and then we had to wait until 6:15 before they wo
Another year Another DoctorSeems my journal here ends up more about the stress of my parent's illnesses than about my art.
My father will be 78 the end of February.
He's never had a stress test.
My mom and I got their gp to finally get him to get one. Not easy. My father always just says 'I'm fine'.
He had one today.
He met us for lunch afterwards (I couldn't go with him as mom also had a doctor's appointment) and said he was told there was an anomoly and also where the anomoly was there was often a false positive and that he would let his gp know and the gp would get back to him about more tests.
Before my dad even got home there was a message on the phone from the gp saying the stress test doctor said dad's arteries were severely abnormal and he needed to get a heart catherization tomorrow. Dad is, besides being surprised and scared (they are moving very fast), pretty pissed off at being lied to by the stress test doctor.
So, mom has another doctor's appointment tomorrow at 9:15 am at the hospital. My dad has
Merry Christmas and Happy New YearBusy busy busy.
All sorts of mini problems cropped up this december that slowed me down.
I am normally a procrastinator, but this December I ended up far behinder than is even normal for me. lol
But, I am finally nearly finished everything except any food prep I need to do. I have two presents left to wrap and I have to sign my family cards, but beyond that I am done wrapping and cleaning and decorating and anything else that needed doing. Finally.
Not being up to pixeling (that muse seemed to take off right after Thanksgiving) I went wandering through my flash cards and found lots of photos I always planned on sharing. So I gathered a few and posted them.
I wish everyone a belated Happy Hanukkah, very Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noël, Feliz Navidad, Happy Kwanzaa, Blessed Winter Solstice and a Happy, Healthy, Properous 2008.
You can faint nowI did it.
I added to my gallery.
No photos, but a few of my pixels that I've made for my tag shop.
All work on them is my own. They are some of my favorites.
Procrastination and stuffI am the princess of procrastination.
I am. Ask any of the few people who know me. It should be my permanent life title. lol
Getting ready to head to NJ on wednesday for 6 weeks (or so) to spend time with my mom. Am I packed? No. Have I started packing? If you consider throwing some socks and a pair of walking shoes in my suitcase starting to pack. So I have two days to clean up around here so it's not messy when I get home (bathroom, laundry, towels, bedding etc plus ) and to pack and organize ( what's that? ) everything. Plus the regular everyday stuff.
I know better. I put my suitcase out a week ago to start putting stuff in. I had good intentions. Really. lol
Also I'm a clutz. I spilled soda on my ergonomic keyboard and it went all weird. Kept spitting out 7s. So I am typing on a regular one. And my arms are so sore and I keep typing wrong and have to back up and retype it because I hit the wrong keys. I'm hoping it will dry out. I can't really afford a new on
Happy Birthday to meMy birthday was Monday the 21st. Happy Birthday to me!
Ya' know, you'd think by the time you hit my age I would be over people forgetting my birthday. I discovered I'm not. lol At least not where family is concerned.
My father and my eldest brother both forgot my birthday this year. By the end of my birthday when I was getting ready for bed I was really depressed that neither called me. As of today neither has remembered that they forgot.
It's not like I didn't have a lovely day. I had a wonderful birthday.
Lots of birthday wishes in the forums I frequent. A few cyber graphic presents.
I got a phone call from my other brother and he sent me flowers. I never get flowers so that was fun. And they smell so good.
My mom and I spent the day playing tourist. We were in Cape May NJ all day. Wandering shops, having lunch outside, down at Cape May Point looking for sea glass and at the lighthouse watching birds. Heading home we stopped for dinner at my most favorite restaurant out here in NJ. I

16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they

This is will be broken down into 3 chapters, with chapter I available now
YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!
