I've put this bit of work up for Illustration Friday. It was one of those things that popped into my head. I love it when that happens. One of my customers was going to throw away this clock she broke. It was her son's. He had an airplane theme in his room and it was very retro. Then this idea just hit me.
Meantime, I had to relax this weekend. I got a massage on Friday, so I try not to do any heavy duty work for a couple of days, so I can get the most of it. So I decided to play with the Wii. It was great. I played with Legend of Zelda; Ocarina of Time. I never had an N64. And I always like Zelda games. Then I started on Paper Mario for the Wii. That is such a cool game. It's so neat looking and slick and fun. It was nice, I didn't even do any yard stuff. It was too hot anyway. And I played with the kitten, helped a friend pick out a GPS and just hung out. Oh yeah, plus I played with the new Mac Mini! It's very cool!

What a week. Work is crazy. I had people at the beginning of the summer, several of whom delayed my work. Now they're all calling to say they're ready!
Meantime the new kitten is cuter than ever. She's really started settling in.
I liked Bourne Ultimatum, it was the first Bourne I've seen in the theater. It was anti-climatic since the power in the theater went off about 5 minutes before the end of the movie. I really loved Stardust, the movie. It was like the Princess Bride of the new century. I don't always read Neil Gaiman, I should, I always like his stuff. But what I totally got hooked on is 'Jekyll', on BBC America. Great stuff! I still have to check out the new Flash Gordan.
So I finished reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and then had no one to talk to about it, because my cohort Potter fans were not done reading or out of town. Luckily I found a forum just for people like me on PopCandy.
