Apparently while I was in Chicago (and not checking my messages) I got a DD.

WHAT

Thanks! Now I feel lousy for not, you know, writing back or anything.

Back to work!

Newbie fell asleep for the last time on Monday at 3pm. He's not in pain anymore. I will miss him so much.

We spent a few hundred on surgery, and I would have gladly spent a thousand more (money I don't have) if it would have given him more time with us. But honestly, it would have been selfish to prolong his pain a few more months just so we could hang out with him more, you know?

He had advanced adrenal, an enlarged prostate, and a urinary tract infection. He quite likely had kidney damage too, but we didn't get a blood test done. We knew that sleep was the only way to help him.

RIP Newbie.


In other semi-related news, I am doing commissions. I don't like to set a price list, so if you want to commission me, send me a PM or email with what you want and I'll give you an estimate. Serious offers only, I am sick of getting notes about drawing someone's rainbow-dragon-bunny-demon-angel-drow and 35 of her closest chums in full rendered color and shade and getting yelled at because I won't do it for $15.

Question for you -

What style of my art do you prefer to see? The "storybook" kind, or the pin-up painted kind?

I like them both but I'm wondering what you guys like.

Before, I could say that my lack of updates was because I was too busy at work.

Now, my lack of updates is because I've been moving back and forth for the past month!!

In the VERY near future, I shall be a jobless housewife with nothing better to do than watch Golden Girls, prepare dinner for my man, and paint!

HUZZAH!

Until then, please pardon my dust!

Okay so I fell on my ass at work today (yes, I actually landed on my ass) and if that wasn't embarrassing enough, I managed to catch the "grandma flap" of my upper arm (don't giggle, you know exactly what I mean) on the corner of a piece of plate steel (1/8" thick to be precise)  and I now have an awesomely ugly red and purple and bloody upper arm.

Luckily I was wearing a long-sleeve tshirt. That and no one saw me fall.

Went about with my day as usual, except with a numb left hand.

Ok, so here's the deal.

I have all sorts of stuff to deal with in the next month or so, and this years-old trades list is starting to bug me. I took on more than I could handle at once, I can admit this. So, I am scrapping it.

If you have already completed your side of the trade, I am keeping you on the list.

If you have already started working on your side of the trade but haven't posted anything, show me progress and I'll keep you on the list.

Otherwise, I am just going to call it quits and when I open up trades again you can send me another note. I apologize but I have a lot on my plate right now without trades on top of it all :(

(I posted this in my livejournal too)

So yesterday my computer decided that it needed to be reformatted. Ok, so it didn't actually make the decision...a trojan virus made the decision for us.

A little background - my boyfriend is a computer tech, and as a favor he offered to fix a friend's computer (it was one he himself built for the friend some years ago). Said friend has loser roommates who have no idea how to use a computer. Meaning - "Let's google search "Free Porn"....."Let's download and open this random executable, what could go wrong??"

Yeah.

So this computer was in pretty sorry shape. Dave's an awesome tech - he used to work for the state police, has all sorts of certifications and such, but even he was swearing at it. What makes it even worse was that he was using both my computer and his computer downloading all sorts of antivirus software and researching what other people did about these particular viruses that were popping up.

This virus jumped from Eric's computer to the mobile drive Dave was using to transfer files. It then jumped from the mobile drive onto Dave's computer, completely locking it up. It jumped onto our laptop, wipig it out (thank goodness there was nothing of worth on it, just some text documents. The laptop is mostly our DVD station honestly). It also jumped onto my computer, but David managed to catch it before it went crazy on my machine. He spent a whole week sleeping maybe three hours a night trying to restore his and Eric's machine, though. He eventually fixed them both.

He insisted that I start backing up my artwork and such while I still could. I am so glad I did.

My computer's backed up onto disk and also onto a giant mobile drive, and yesterday, after a few weeks of nothing, yesterday I get a virus alert for some crazy trojan virus. Nothing huge, I probably could have handled it myself, but Dave says  "Why bother? You're backed up anyway, let's just reformat this beast. That virus probably never got completely wiped out in the first place." I say "OK"

....

The computer won't reformat!

It apparently has some virus which causes Windows to lock up on one of the setup files. I'm really not conversant with all the technical details, when David starts talking tech I usually zone out slightly unfortunately. Maybe I should just install Linux.

But isn't that crazy?? My computer is super old in computer land....4 years old actually. It has only been infected with a virus or trojan twice - once when I let a friend download MSN messenger onto it (should never have let her touch the damn machine!) and when the virus jumped from the mobile drive onto my machine. I take good care of my computers.


Anyway so here I am, on the laptop.

OTHER MORE FORTUNATE EVENTS

Last night we gave all five ferrets a bath at once. It was fun. At first they all pooped in the bath (GROSS) but after I cleaned all the gunk out. and they gave up splashing and flailing, they just...relaxed. All of them just lay around in the water, eyes half-closed. It was so sweet. And of course now I have four clean fluffy ferrets (and one clean patchy-furred one...he's old and losing his fur) running around.

Newsflash to the wise:

Okay, so if you weigh in the 200+ pound range, and you live in an upstairs apartment with your two 200+ pound roommates, please remember that if you MUST play DDR from 7pm to 3am every night, that the poor weirdos with the ferrets who live below you can hear every step. Loud and clear. That is all.

Labor Day Weekend!

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 1, 2007, 12:04 PM


I'm telling you, this 3-day weekend could not have come sooner. I have been so tired recently...a little break will be nice!

I've been doing a lot of drawing...ON PAPER! *gasp* I have a little sketchbook that is rapidly filling up! With what, you ask? Drawings of Verushka, Rook, and Lydie's world...it's a lot of fun! I can't wait to do some finished paintings!

I have also been watching a lot (A LOT) of Agatha Christie's Poirot! I love Poirot, David and I make it a contest to see who can solve the mysteries first! I usually lose :(

Apart from that, not much else is new in the world of SK....I just wanted mostly to get that long journal off of my front page, and pimp this new CSS layout! Stylish!

See you all later!

~SushiK away!
