If I can manage to work ahead, I could try to bring a week's worth of uploads to my friend's house and kidnap use of her scanner since mine is no longer compatible with Win 10 after its most recent updates.

Yeah my grandma still uses Windows 7 and it's very glitchy because Microsoft has stopped creating updates for it. Now it's fairly slow, and her CD and USB drives don't work anymore either. But she doesn't have the money to upgrade to a better computer.

Anyway, nice picture! I never understood why some use those glitter diamond stars for eyes tho...

The glitter-star eyes is like the Japanese equivalent of a lit light-bulb above someone's head to represent a new idea. Sometimes the different ways to look at something are described in Japanese by onomatopoeia, regardless that looking does not really have a sound, so the eyes are thoguht of very animate. じっとする (jittosuru) is one of these onomonopia which is the verb for staring. The longer the Ji is held, the more intense the stare. To me personally, I think it sounds like a laser beam, and makes me think of the English phrase that you're "beaming" at something if you're staring at it. I think many Japanese people may have their own visual interpretations of the different onomatopoeia for the eyes, and these glitter-star marks may just be a common one.
