It's a good good morning!!! >^____^ [Nov. 22nd, 2005|11:43 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Good morning, good morning!

My computer is working! Thank you, thank you to foxmagic!!

We ended up having to wipe one hard drive clear and reformat it, and then ended up buying a brand new hard drive as well =/

Luckily, I'm a back-up fiend, and I back up my hard drive and all of my important files (art files, financial records, order files, etc.) every single day, sometimes twice, so I lost very little data. I've been spending the day re-installing drivers for my various peripherals and updating software, etc., which is dull, but thank goodness nothing "bad" has happened. Just a lot of stress =/ And of course now a lot of emails are backed up because I didn't get to that much while my computer was down, eek!

After all of this computer nonsense is hurting my head, lol, so I'm going to get some actual PAINTING done now! I finished up a commission - I'll get that scanned in and emailed to the customer tonight, and now I'm working on a new painting too up on my webcam here --> WATCH MY WEBCAM. I've got a bit of a sky scene started, and I'll just wing it from there.

Since we have so many family members down here now, I bought TWO Tofurkys at Whole Foods! Heather's going to make a "Pumpkin Bake", and we'll have potatoes and yams, veggies, pies, all sorts of good stuff for Thanksgiving on Thursday! And then Matt's birthday, and then on Sunday we leave for our cruise!!

I think I will probably use eBay's "pause" option on my eBay store while I am gone (it will temporarily make it so that my store listings will disappear, and then reappear when I return) since I probably won't have much internet access being in the ocean or on the islands. I will however list some traditional auction-auctions which will run normally while I am gone.

Enough chit-chat, I'm going to go paint now!

Yay for computer working!

Your Thanksgiving sounds like fun... Matt & I are thinking of taking a Tofurky down to his folks. It will probably scare them.

Take lots of pictures on your cruise. =)

Re: hi

Hi Alex!!!

I emailed you guys when I shipped (at the gillycrooks address) - your book was shipped out on the 13th of October - most people in the UK have not received theirs yet. Surface Mail (ie, by boat) according to the Post Office takes 4-6 weeks, so odds are you (and most of the other UK customers) won't receive your book until another week or two, so I wouldn't worry too much! Surface Mail unfortunately does not offer tracking (the only package shipping service through our Post Office that offers tracking to the UK is Global Express and it costs about $20.50 for one package). If another couple of weeks go by just drop me an email and I'll see what I can do, but most of my UK customers will not have received their books yet!

Didi you see the scary looking fake turkey while you were there? I forget the name, but it was above the tofurkeys. The picture on the cover looked like an old paper bag or the back of some old man's neck. And the image looked all 70s and dingy. Mmmmm!

Yes! That's the "UnTurkey"! Believe it or not, it's pretty tasty, hehe - we get them sometimes. The skin is yummy - it's "yuba" which is a flat fried sheet of very very thin crispy tofu.

We had Amber & Chris over and made Tofurky, lots of other food too and we played board games, watched movies, etc. It was a lot of fun =)

We're getting ready to leave on our cruise early tomorrow - I'd better get packing!
