Yesterday my husband sent me this link about procrastination, I know it was a bit of a dig... but I'll let it pass. (True, I did spend two hours the other day on the vegan freak forums talking to people, but it was a rare occasion, maybe). I did get up in the middle of the night and ended up talking to people in the chatroom for a bit, had a horrid sleep with my mother ringing every few hours to tell me how my step-father was doing, and that they were going to operate on him soon etc etc.
So speaking of that topic which I supposedly frequently participate, I did spend nearly all day on the glossary, and feel, apart from two appendixes that need to be added, that, I am at the point of printing it out and cross-checking it. I was trying to do it on screen last night, 60 A4 pages of info scrolling back and forth, very frustrating. So, I shall soon, perhaps, have it out of my system.
I am a little loathe to speak about this, but it annoyed me; so here goes:
So, for months, I was told I was going to be in a feature about Australian Designers in an Asian (Hong Kong) magazine called IdN. It was pushed out and pushed out, and finally I received the magazine with said article in it yesterday, and I wasn't in it!! 15 Designers out of the list of 20. So there are 4 others, like me, wondering why, no doubt.
I have a theory...
I'm not cool enough.
So I have concluded my work was excluded because I wasn't cool enough for their publication. I really like their magazine normally, and good on the people that managed to get in, but, man, how grumpy am I about it?! Now I really feel like I am worth NOTHING...
That's my rant.
It has made me want to work harder.

about buying on line.
Wednesday, December 28, 2005, 07:27 PM - Relationships, English, FrenchYesterday I received the best things!
I received a card from a very good friend, a present from another and a very large box of stuff from my mama. She is too nice! She sent me books, and vegemite, and bits of japanese fabric, perhaps to temp me to be creative with them again (haven't sewn anything for ages), but one of the best things she sent me was the first "The Young Ones" DVD. My man looked at it puzzled, they never showed the French the mayhem of that show obviously. Maybe they thought they wouldn't understand? Perhaps scratch their heads in bewilderment? Wonder what in fact, they watched at the end of the program? Haven't tested it out on him yet.
Subscribed to a new podcast today : The French Podclass (which I found while listening to The Word Nerds. I have half listened to the first podcast, can tell you my French is much better than basic greetings, but I am happy I found it, he has done alot of work on it. I am impressed! Take a look if you are trying to learn French, I think it is a good resource so far...
Seems I am Captain Jack Sparrow at heart...

| You scored as Captain Jack Sparrow. Roguish,quick-witted, and incredibly lucky, Jack Sparrow is a pirate who sometimes ends up being a hero, against his better judgement. Captain Jack looks out for #1, but he can be counted on (usually) to do the right thing. He has an incredibly persuasive tongue, a mind that borders on genius or insanity, and an incredible talent for getting into trouble and getting out of it. Maybe its brains, maybe its genius, or maybe its just plain luck. Or maybe a mixture of all three. |

So, I promise I will do something in colour next time I have an illustration friday submission.
I have been told that we are going into the FNAC today to buy a gift for the nieces, why today?
Christmas celebrations tonight, had a horrid sleep over night due to neighbours kid deciding he was going to start partying at middnight. He is only 10 or something like that, already listens to death metal and punk and last night was honestly the first time he has annoyed me with playing music really loud, and the first time I was able to hear it in my lounge room. I guess, I am in an apartment, it is Christmas, and, well, two good reasons not to be grumpy about it. Makes me sound old.
