Burn The World

Late Night Stuff

Di passed out early again...good thing, too, because she really feels terrible. I hope this passes by Friday, since she has a photoshoot. Me? Been chatting with a random IM...not something I usually do, but this chick seems pretty cool, so what the Hell. Little weird, but that's never bothered me.

While I chatted (mostly about horror movies and aquariums), I did a new icon...this one for adrenalinegirl:

Head Swelling

Well, events are in that are conspiring to make me feel good. Bastards. ;)

First off, I have this chick I talked to last night, who turned out to be pretty cool, and who told me repeatedly how attrractive I was, and who was disappointed that I had a fiancee. I guess there just aren't many guys like me out there. That's right, ladies, I'm quite spoken for.

Secondly, I got mail last night from someone I'd never met, and have absolutely no connection to, saying they had seen my icons and were really impressed, and could I do an icon and a couple banners for them. WILD...how cool is that? Easy graphics, too.

Add to that the fact that I have FINALLY gotten paid for the first contract I did. The second payment should be coming along in a week or so, which is also a plus. I have to say, though, as a graphic artist, there is nothign quite as cool as seeing the logo you created on the envelope's letterhead and in the check's watermark as well. THAT rocked my fuckin' socks.

Pointlessness

I just got aline on a potential job I could bid on, but something about it doesn't sit right with me:

"we are a company full of artists who need someone from the outside to create our identity."

A company full of artists (an art firm), contracting OUTSIDE for their logo? I have to agree with achmanage on this one: that pretty much implies that you SUCK.

Speechless

Anyone that knows me knows I am a "wordy bastardTM", and rarely at a loss for words. Still, today my tongue was stilled by a little bit of news I read, and if it all means what I think it means...well, shit.

reddelicious, all I can say is that my heart goes out and I wish there was something I could do...and if there IS anything, anything at all within my power, PLEASE don't hesitate to ask.

I'm Always Best WIth An Audience

You know, it's gotta be funny to see me on the phone sometimes. I tend to adopt the speech patterns of whoever I'm on the phone with, so you never know how I'll sound. And I find that I get very expressive on the phone...

...for instance, my mom called me yesterday. As soon as I realized who it was, I just slumped...and mostly paced around thehouse, making various hand gestures inplying my desire to not be in that convo. Did I mention that she is coming out to see me this summer, with my brother? Oh, joy and rapture...not.

On the other hand, I just got off the phone with my Dad...tottally different, right from the get-go. At my 'hello', he calls out "Hey, dickweed!" to which I responded "Hey, motherfucker, how ya doin'?". LMAO...what else could I say?

So if you ever happen to be present when I get a phone call...be ready for a show.
