Come tomorrow, this is my house! If a meteor doesn't fall on it or me or the bank. Holy cow I can hardly believe it.
I have to say, I don't often discuss politics in detail. But I'm having hard time seeing the news with all this Bush vetoes the war crap. Someone told me that he thinks he's on a holy mission. Who's idea was that? To get a guy on a holy mission to fight other guys on holy missions? Wasn't that the Crusades? It seems pointless to have a large body or representatives to suggest policies, so that can be voted down by one guy. The whole system seems like frustration after frustration. So I take it out on my NationStates account.
I took a break from packing yesterday and went to the Aqua Teen Hunger Force Movie and LMAO! It was so fun and campy. It's nice to see Adult Swim get some screen play. Now if we could just get a Venture Bros. movie...
I plan on taking a break next week to see Spider-Man 3! Meantime I have loads to do, including my new 'house blog'. Holy Cow, I'm about to be a house-owner!

Well, I might be almost a home owner. Weird! freaky. Crazy. Someone said to me the other day it's hard to tell excitement from fear sometimes. You got that right!
Here's my very late entry for Illustration Friday: Fortune. I enjoy Cats and love the Lucky Cat. So I did this, just for Illustrator practice.

Yo! I just realized it's less then a month away! Spider-Man 3! Cool! Bring on the summer blockbuster! I saw Meet the Robinsons 3D. Cute and real great animation detail.
And I might be closer to buying a house! Things have been signed! Vast amounts of paperwork. Geez. I can't believe how much paperwork there is. I figure I'll keep a page of before and after pics and details up for the friends and family out there past the city limits! It's all exciting and frightening at the same time. A bit like a roller coaster. The Hulk in Islands of Adventure, Universal at Orlando Florida is my favorite coaster. Though the Spider-Man ride down there is v. cool.
I recently went on this organization binge and started using iCal and Yojimbo to keep my brain clear. The idea being, get stuff out of your brain. I feel like I'm getting more stuff done, it's weird how that works. Being the artistic type, I know it's a good idea to write down ideas and scribbles, since ideas are fleeting, but writing down all the stupid little stuff is great too.
I've been doing a few articles for ThinkMac.net. That's been enjoyable, checking out new software and learning new stuff. Jonathan, the guy that started it, has asked for help, from a few people and it seems to be going well. Plus it's really great to share the Mac Love! I'm hoping to take some Mac certifications classes this year.
I was recently in the Smokey Mountains, NC and it snowed! I haven't seen snow in years. I can't say I really miss it, but it was pretty. But V. cold! it was icy all weekend and I had to buy a hat!
So one of these pics was a bit of the ice and snow from this weekend. The other hilariously was from an annual Big Wheel race, held on Lombard St. in San Francisco every year. I think I may have to put that on my to do list for future reference!
