Don't fall off your chair, yes, I'm actually posting!
First off, I'm posting because, well, I had to call Eset about my virus protection and I had to power up to do so, which meant actually coming into my living room, so heck, as long as I'm here, why not actually say hi (and a belated Happy Halloween) to my friends, whom I miss like crazy! SO....

HI!

Then I figured as long as I was here, I'd check a few things and noticed some virtual gifts so....

THANK YOU, andrea_2006!!!
I LOVE the blue spider and the chocolate user-head!!! Thank you for remembering me in my absence!
I also just had to post this - which I spotted over on Facebook as posted by the brilliant sweeneybird - it's absolutely on target and something we can all do so easily - if so inclined and on the same page, of course. I just got my mail for the week yesterday and had three such envelopes as mentioned in this vid - and yep, I'm going to do exactly as this brilliant young man suggests! Thanks, Sweens!














okay, back to bed for me....

Isn't it brill?

Got to power up today too as I needed to see if I had a response from Eset yet, so thought I'd check my flist, etc. Man, I miss this!

Still sending good vibes your way for luck in the job hunting!!!

PS: With your art skills, have you thought of something along the lines of graphic arts online? *scrunches up face in thought* You're just so talented!

Re: Isn't it brill?

I hadn't ever really thought of doing graphic arts stuff--I don't have any sort of formal art training and nothing even resembling credentials...

It would be fun though. :D

Re: Isn't it brill?

But that's the good thing about doing it online. So much of it is really what you do when you make icons etc. People want beautiful cover art and ideas on colors and placement etc, and you've a natural talent there. It's one of the areas that's actually booming. So many people are trying small businesses on the internet but need help with beautiful, eye-catching artwork (ie; photoshop versus stock photos). So yeah, I think you could do this, kiddo!

Hi! It's so good to hear from you :-)

*hugs*

I miss this so much. I was emailing patk and told her I was bound and determined to find a 99 year-old billionaire and marry him (or get adopted *g*) so I could get the furniture I need to stay out here and play again on my computer, write and stay connected to my buds! LOL!

If you know any 99 year-old billionaires - and you don't want 'em - send 'em my way! LOL!
