The Search for Rally Cap RudySlight update:
It turned out that the old email I found for his breeder/former owner/former trainer is still good, and she got back to me today with the news that she's going to look into what's happened to him and get back to me on Wednesday if she finds out anything! Woot!
Sleepless North of SeattleAnd its not because of the big booms happening right now.
I've stayed up all night a couple times in the last few weeks now, searching for any mention of a Thoroughbred racehorse I like, whether he has been moved to another track or trainer, or has been sent home for a long rest or recuperation from an injury not noted in the chart of his last race, or God Forbid, disposed of at an auction like so many other low-level claimers are.
I can't explain why its THIS horse and not all of the horses in my virtual stable on Twinspires who've been MIA for months, 'cause I don't know why but I am starting to get a bit obsessed. His name is Rally Cap Rudy, and his last race was on April 2nd, 2018 at Turf Paradise in Arizona. Last summer he raced at Emerald Downs (trained by his breeder/owner, even!) but when his trainer went to Hastings after Emerald's season ended, he was immediately claimed (can't blame 'em, he's a consistent runner, and I would if I could!). That owner/t
Looking Up How to Junk My CarThe Honda I got for free from the parents is having increasing transmission trouble and the struts have started to collapse, both issues for which I have 0 money. Plus, despite it being a '99 model, it was actually built in '98 so its 20 years old this year. I do wish I had the money to fix it up, as its been important to me for the last 30+ years to have the freedom to drive for hours and busses don't cut it for that, despite if its a good system or not.
I plan to drive it until it quits, as I pretty much only drive around the city since I stopped long-distance driving after the strokes (tho now its because of the car and not the fatigue factor), and with the city's bus system I won't get stranded if/when it breaks down. But I certainly will be depressed by the lack of freedom and loss of ability to do things like haul stuff around. Yes, I could get, for instance, a new TV delivered here but there's a high risk of package theft in my building.
Guess What Showed Back UpWarning: On the Edge of Raging Bitchness Ahead
So I got a note that day from the person who used to run the garden about free veggie starts that were on offer, so I called and asked if she'd seen where the hose nozzle went. She's the one that told me it had been there when she was sitting in the chair next to the hose on Thursday afternoon, and she had hung it up on the fence along with the broken purple one. Sitting there in the muddy, swampy area next to the hose, on a chair on soaking wet plywood, when there were lots of other chairs in DRY areas to sit, and had hung up my bought nozzle along with one that had a broken lever.
Just mentioning that.
Guess what showed up some time between that phone call and 7 am this morning. Just happened to be attached to the hose, too. Hmmm.
Its now in my apartment for the time being, because I am (probably menopausally) bitchy right now and that is not a good time to decide what I'm going to do - leave it
And Then Some Mofo......stole the spray nozzle I bought for the garden hose just last week. It was there yesterday, and I'm told it was there earlier today...but not this evening. GRRRRRR. I guess it was too damn shiny for someone to resist.
Guess I'll go buy another and keep it with me.
If you're wondering why its so important its because my garden is like 60+ feet away down an incline from the nearest spigot, and while no one has stolen my gallon plastic watering jug I really don't want to haul it back and forth umpteen zillion times to water my whole garden. I use it for targeted watering only, which is what I did tonight, trying to get the nasturtiums and squash to finally sprout.
Good Lord I Feel Fucking Crazy TodayPeriods during menopause are just as bad as during puberty...just less fucking messy. I feel like a fucking crazy person today. And like repeating that.
And with that I segue into the news that my Crazy Period Vixen pattern on Spoonflower got enough Favorites to be included in one of their Daily Trending lists. Right at the end, but its on the list!
HD TroublesLooks like my trusty ol' external drive may be ready to give up the ghost. I did mirror the files on my internal drive, but looks like I may eventually be in the market for another backup drive. Or something.
Banged Out About 4So it looks like my skill is back up to where it was....but my subject matter that I really want to draw has...changed slightly, let me say. Menopause is demanding it. *wiggles eyebrows*
I drew 4 large sketches today, only one of which I decided to share. Since its on 17" bristol, I had to splice it together which looks alriiiiight...but not perfect.

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

Logo Auctions Failure and July Commissions!Logo Auctions Failure
The Auctions finished and just like last time, only a couple designs were selected. From now on I will have to be more picky with which designs are going for auction. Maybe make a stash folder and a poll asking which designs should be on the next auction.
Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project abandoned.
My commissions are always open, I just ask you to be patient because I work on them as ideas

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
