To start, Happy Independence Day to all my fellow US flisters! Hope you guys had a good one!! And too all my non-US flisters, happy 4th anyways! XD
It's weird...for the first time in months, I had a day with nothing posted on it since LT took a dive. I was really hoping to get to posting yesterday, but I really didn't have much to post about to begin with. I DO need to catch up on reply to comments (apologies about that! You guys know how I get sometimes!), so I'm gonna get that knocked out after this post.
I DO have something exciting to post about today, though! (And the 4th of July, of all days. Rather awesomepops in my opinion) - WE GOT A POOL!!! *dances* It's one of those above ground ones, but it's not one of the dinky cheap ones either. It has an 18 ft. diameter and is 4 ft. deep. Smurfinator went out and bought it today...why TODAY out of the last FOUR years we've been bitching about not having a pool he decided to finally do it, idk. But I'm not complaining. I was in it already...straightening out the wrinkles in the bottom as they were starting to fill it up with water. Unfortunately, I have to work tomorrow so I won't get to enjoy it until tomorrow night, but still...OMFG. We ACTUALLY haz a pool!!! XD
The results of the video poll are in, and Stand is the definite winner. So tomorrow while I'm in the box, I'll burn a copy to send of to Creation for Chicago Con. I'm not sure how well it's gonna do, but it's better than sending nothing at all.
I think I might have given up on the Victor Sketch. You may have noticed I haven't posted an update on it in a while, and today I started to work on it some more and the inspiration/skill wouldn't come to me. I might pick it back up or just go with what I have already. But I've already started putting effort into another 'project' to take the place of the Victor sketch, so don't expect much right now for said sketch.
Oh, I have decided after a lovely conversation on twitter that I am going to be getting Mega Snake signed by Michael. And while he's signing it, I'll kindly inform him I was the one who got it at Wal-Mart....and did it with massive glee and bouncing. Yes, I know I'm an evil fangirl.
Expect some pic posts soon. I've got a handful of what I snapped in S.FL, and I've also got lots of new pretty to decorate my room with (thanks in large part to belisse
! XD), so there will be more update room pics coming too (b/c my room is a damn art project all to itself and needs updates just like any other project of mine!).
Alrighty, I've got comments to reply to, a list to update, and then the previous mentioned project (Victor sketch replacement one) to bitch over some more, so that's it for tonight.
P.S. - The name of that book I was too lazy to get the other night is 'Adventure! Thrilling Tales of Discovery'. It's a collection of adventure tales (both fiction and non) in an Indiana Jones-esk type way...it was the Indy lettering on the cover that caught my eye to begin with. I'm excited to read it...if I ever get to it through my massive to-be-read list! *sigh*
