Running errands!

I've had a fun day of running errands with Matt & Kachina. We went to the mall, and the post office (I mailed tons of stuff!).

Yesterday I spent all my birthday money! I bought some trousers at Hot Topic and some more at some other mall store, and some lovely shirts. I also bought a brand new fancy webcam!!!! I'll have to figure that out and hook it up later, hehe - it should be really cool =)

I also bought some books on Art Nouveau (I'd like to do some Art Nouveau inspired pieces!!!) and Brian Froud's Faery Oracle cards (like tarot cards but all Faery-ish). We went to Disney World last night and ate at Boma (African buffet) which was one of the best restaurants ever! The vegetarian array was incredible! Lentil balls, polenta, three types of hummus, breads, black-eyed peas, grilled vegetables, half a dozen different salads, potatoes, sweet potatoes, grilled tofu, other vegetables, fresh fruits and 15 fancy dessert selections! We ate so much!

Right now we're eating some vegetarian bratwursts (yum). After that I'm going to buckle down and get some work done! I'll update with a link once I start =)

Oh yes - I got scans of The Art of Faery showing my pages! It looks great - I sound thoughtful and professional and the layout is awesome =) I also found out that I'll be able to sell the book directly from me (like on my website or eBay store) so that I can offer signed copies!

New webcam =)

Ok! I hooked up the new webcam =) It is absolutely wonderful! Unfortunately I have the same yahoo hosting, so for you guys the picture will still be small and relatively slow, but the picture is MUCH clearer and it automatically adjusts for lighting and colour, etc. Someday soon I'll bite the bullet and get some paid hosting for my webcam (if anybody knows of any good inexpensive webcam hosting (unlimited use, decent sized picture and fps, etc.) just let me know!

In the meantime though, you can all watch me paint here!
