For years I was putting oil paintings into a local juried art show, sometimes getting in, sometimes not. There was quite an uproar the year a little 3" x 4" thing done in Photoshop won the first prize (the three top prizes got their own show together in the fall.) It was an abstract Photoshop whiz bang, not even anything truly awe inspiring.
The next year I entered a big orange-yellow square and called it "Close up of a School Bus at One DPI"
Needless to say, I was juried out, but some of them got the point.
I already know that mine are just mind blowing. I mean who can't love that they are barely noticeable they are so small, that you go to grab a handful and get ribs and that when I lay done you get to go on a treasure hunt for them cause they've disappeared.
Besides, I don't think Mrs. 26 has an account here yet, so any reasonable doubts regarding my, ummm, stamina.... will be considered null and void as there are no measurable third party ways to verify or deny any suck claims... ummm, I mean, such claims; therefore, and henceforth the before mentioned testicalmony.... I mean, testimony, should be stricken from the record and regarded as false and erroneous.
You know you've had a bad date when you try to kiss your ceiling, but it kind of turns away and then you end up leaning forward for a second with your lips puckered out. Then your ceiling gives you the old "you're real nice but I'm not sure I'm ready for this right now."
And the worst part is, you have to see it every day when you're at home. You just have to awkwardly pretend it doesn't bother you, like, "Oh hey ceiling, what's up. How's it going? Good? That's good. Well...okay. See you around." That's why people say you shouldn't date a co-worker or a neighbor. The same principle applies to parts of your house or apartment.

This raises a lot of questions for me.
What about the poor, poor sporks? Did they not survive the plastic cutlery revolution? And what does that say about the survivors? Will I still enjoy my macaroni salad as much....? Knowing that my fork might be a racist? And what if I discover that I do?...still enjoy my picnic lunch just as much, that is. I'm not even sure I'd notice if all the sporks were gone.
What does that say about me?
I mean really. I can't remember the last time I sat down and ate with a spork. I can't even trot out that tired old cliché "Some of my best friends are sporks." Now that I think about it, I've questioned their lineage and even made the occasional joke about their stereotypical ineffectuality. I could try to defend them as light-hearted jests, but I really should know better.
yay friday!! Thanks for the Quotes Kool! A phoned in friday is a good friday!
And we have no major plans this weekend either! I may be helping a buddy move, Audi has to go to a work related function for a few hours on saturday, but I think that's about it. There aren't even paintball plans yet! Between people being sick, broke, having to work or just needing a weekend to heal, I don't think we're hitting the field this weekend. It'll be the first sunday in the last 5 or 6 that I'm actually staying home.
have a great weekend ever'body!

Happy Friday all! I'm spending the morning looking for images of STRESS.
I might just send them a self-portrait.

Great quotes, I love the Friday posts. I've got a renaissance faire/pirate fest wedding to attend tomorrow and a family gathering Sunday to visit the nephew. Tonight I hope to mow the lawn for the last time this year. And edge it. And generally make my neighbors look trashier than they do on their own. I'm nice like that.
Woot! Phoned in is better than not in at all! Thank you for all your effort Kool.
Fairly average weekend ahead of me, aside from tonight. We'll be going out for dinner and drinks with several friends, one of which is my husband's former boss (and old friend of mine from before they even met). It's kinda a good-bye sort of thing, as he's not likely to be around much longer (pancreatic cancer, tumor inoperable due to being wrapped around a blood vessel). Never attended anything quite like this, should be a fun/interesting/sad night all wrapped up into one.

Thanks Kool!!! I missed those cupcakes, they are wicked awesome.
I am finally at home for a day off after working the last 11 in a row (including some 12 hour days in there and one 2am seen at the office). And yet I'm at my computer still doing a little bit of work stuff before I can really shut down for the day.
And as Bladez said, event tomorrow, but the event while work, will probably be fun. So it's all good. It's a big promo event.
Mostly I can't wait to sleep this weekend and just do nothing.

This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

I agree with this sentiment. Graphic design in respect to only doing print work is becoming secondary, and therefore much more competitive. Finding a job that involves some graphic design is a good start...
