  • Happy Fishy Friday!!!

    It's National Caviar Day

    I've never had any Caviar - I hear you either love it or hate it. Maybe someday

    It's also opening day of the track here ... now the already bad parking will be nearly impossible! I won't be going downtown much until September

    Have a great weekend all you wonderful Designers!!

    Will they let you get up on stage and pretend to play an instrument?

    If the groupie situation is awesome, that is what I would ask for in return for a logo.

When I explained that I don't use Publisher she paused and calmly suggested that I get a copy if I wanted to be taken seriously as a design professional. It seems that in her view, amateur designers use MS Word, but really good designers use the more professional MS Publisher.

Also you need to know how to code, type, draw, paint, model clay, carve stone, etch steel, and design it all to fit in a 1x1x1 inch box that you design. "

    My livingroom smelling like satan's sulpherous arse, because my three and four year old got overly excited about easter, got in the fridge, snuck off with all the hard boiled, dyed easter eggs that we made and smashed them open all over the coffee table looking for treats that obviously were not inside them.

    It really does smell dastardly and I'm not sure that I will ever manage to get all the smooshy egg nastiness out of the fine grating of the fire screen. Unfortunately I was putting on laundry in the garage and so by the time I caught them they had been violently disecting ovum for a good five minutes, so the blast zone is over half the livingroom.

    They were so dissapointed that the eggs didn't have anything treatworthy in them. They made sure to check the contents of each egg thoroughly though.

    Reminds me of the time about a year ago when I left them painting at the kitchen table for about three minutes while I went to pee and when I came back they looked as though they hadn't moved, but multiple small items in the kitchen had miraculously been painted green, like the knobs on the cooker, a few of the spice jars in the cupboard and the doorhandles.

    So.. you were forced to draw a girl who blackmailed you into doing it under the threat that she would tell your girlfriend that you cheated on her?

    I can't stop laughing at the thought of being MADE to draw someone.. haha.


    But.. but please.. I have to go...


    Please! NO!.. Arghhh *starts to draw*

    Awesome quotage Red, thanks

    Caviar is one of those things like olive oil or balsamic vinegar. You get what you pay for. The good stuff is really really good while the cheap stuff can be really horrible.

      Thank you too!

      ... maybe one day if I have a few extra pennies I'll give it a whirl. It's one of those things that has always seemed so chic and stylish to have ... but I've never been anywhere that I could try a bite. All I can envision is my reaction being that of Tom Hanks in Big ... when he tries a little toast point with beluga

    Awesome Quotes! I had to go back and look at the thread bismal's quote was in, couldn't view the drawing unfortunately.... sometimes I wish that I found this place earlier than I did.

    Have a great weekend everybody!
    Design is not decoration.

      Good quotes, I love the drawing one too. Happy Friday all you employed non-breeder / empty nesters! (the rest of us will be operating per normal. Saturdays and Mondays are identical around here. Well, except Monday is trash day. ) :-)

      And caviar in the color of the German flag? Is this an ongoing celebration of the World Cup here?

        Ah, happy Friday! Took the day off.
        What an awesome morning.
        7 a.m. At the dealer
        8 a.m. Left the dealer with passed safety & emissions tests, an oil change, and rotated tires.
        8:20 a.m. At the DMV after a quick stop back at the house
        8:55 a.m. Tags acquired.
        9 a.m. Hunted for food at Trader Joe's, found fresh (not frozen) lasagna.
        9:30 a.m. Panera for bread & a treat, the 4-cheese soufflé
        9:40 a.m. Starbucks for a caramel macchiato. Workers were VERY disorganized.
        9:56 a.m. Back home, food put away, loving life.

        Caviar on a water cracker with a mimosa accompaniment is quite a tasty treat. Have a good weekend everyone.

          Thanks for the awesome quotes Kittie!

          I am looking forward to a lazy weekend. Gonna plop myself on a boat tomorrow and just cruise around. Weather's supposed to be ideal, plenty of eats and iced beverages, an ocean breeze... what more do I need?

          Have a great weekend everybody!
          Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

            Happy Weekend! Great quotes Kittie! Obviously I need to get back in the habit of hanging out here.

            I'm in project mode, so that's what I'll be doing this weekend. Really want to go out and do something tonight though. Anyone want to get out?

              I've always had a side business doing work for various clients, but I've never bitten the bullet and taken the chance of doing it full-time. Honestly, I'm a little envious of you. Good luck!

              Have you tried a web search for

              I don't ever use them so I can't offer any advice on who to use.
