Holy Shit

I just did a quick search on Google, and found another guy who likes the Papermate Sharpwriter. What a freak.

So… Does This Make Me a Freak?

Got up early today, so that I could run out to Target and get supplies for next week. Bought a new sweater, some more socks, shampoo, mouthwash – usual suspects. Every time I go on a road trip for "business," I tend to stock up on office supplies. In particular, there’s a pencil that I like a great deal –…

Packing and Preparing

Well, I got some more pages down today – spent all day writing away. All told, I think I’ve got something like 32 pages now. We cover basics like graphic symbols, buttons and movie clips… going all the way up to masks and guides. I’d like to be able to get to importing sounds and more involved actions (moving between…

I’m Too Sexy For This Blog

Asked Temp for some of the screencaps he got from last night’s game. Because I just can’t stop looking at myself. Well, looking at pictures of my digital UT self, that is. Lord, o Lord, what a pretty looking game this is.

12 Hours, Just Like That

Woke up this morning, and started writing things out at 8. Three large ass cups of coffee from Gallery Cafe later, and it’s nearing 8 PM. Yikes. Right now, I think I’ve got a lot of information to convey. I worry that, perhaps my students will already have a solid understanding of Flash. That perhaps I’ve thrown all my energies…

MaryAnn, Back in Chicago

Awesome. Just got off the phone with MaryAnn, who visited me a while back. We caught up on the phone, and chatted about what the future holds for both of us. She’ll be working as a Communications Consultant, doing a freelance job for Blue Cross, Blue Shield. Very, very impressive! It’s going to be a three-month long thing, which is…

Goodbye Work, Hello Apartment

Decided to take tomorrow off (gotta love freelance work), and spend the day focusing on more prep work for the Alabama gig. Should be nice, to have the whole day to concentrate. Originally, I had only slated Saturday to get caught up – so tomorrow is like getting a free day out of nowhere. Not sure why I didn’t think…

Hey Ladies!

Justin, after returning from lunch, stops by my desk and says "You need to bring your camera to the escalator. At the bottom, to the left." He didn’t say anything more about it until we left, at which point, we came across an empty showroom, with half-nude mannequins by the window. Fun stuff. We took turns snapping photos. The second…

you are beautiful… again

I saw another one of those sticker things! Not sure what it’s about, but this one I saw on the back of a bench, right across the street from the Damen Blue Line stop. Weird.

Singha

Jebus. It’s like today is Felix’s restaurant review day. Went to the bank, and decided to take another way back to the Mart. Snapped a few photos, and stopped when I passed by two dragon statues at Singha. There were two statues, guarding the door. Both had small plates of food, tucked beneath them. I went inside, curious to see…

Haircut

The funny thing is, my vision is so shitty… that when I get a haircut, I never have any real idea what’s happening (or what I look like) until the very end. It’s a bit unnerving, actually. I don’t see a process or slow progression from one stage to another. It’s glasses off, scissor sounds, completely different person in the…

Good Start Today

Walking to the Blue Line, I passed by what used to be the Daily Grind (at least, I think that was what it was called). Primer location, on the trisection of Milwaukee, North and Damen. And right across the street from an evil Starbucks. Well, there was a sign on the door saying that they would be open today, at…

12 Hour Road Trip! I…. Oh, Wait. Nevermind.

This morning, I get an e-mail from Tim at the University of Alabama. They sent a letter to me, right around the time I moved into my new apartment; I never got the letter. Since they hadn’t heard from me, they assumed that I’d already made my own travel plans. Eek. Well, here I was then, early in the morning,…

It’s Like Church, But Different

So, I have still yet to meet all the people who live in my building. I know Ted (my landlord) is up there, somewhere. The person direct above me (and I don’t think it’s Ted), has an organ. He/She is playing it right now. It’s soft, and surprisingly soothing at times – and makes everything seem a bit more dignified…
