I found an old How-To-Draw book when I was cleaning up around my desk. So being that I am the princess of procrastination(I refuse be be Queen), I started drawing instead of writing. For it being the first thing I've drawn in a very long time, I am very proud of it.
I am thinking of dressing up to night just to amuse myself. Still not sure if I want to wear the costume I bought or get another one. I'll let you know later and maybe even post a few pictures.

I am planning on working on my silly little comic this week. Really I am. I have a friend who wants to do the art. He keeps dropping hints. It is kinda cute in an annoying sort of way. He is really good so I am hoping to get a few pages to him soon. I am thinking I might do a mini comic out of the beginning of what I have scripted. It just doesn't really fit with the story but I love it. So hopefully I'll have something to show here soon.

I had said I was hoping to go to Seattle this weekend, but the hubby blew up at my mentioning it. So I am still thinking if I should go or not. I might just take off with the kids and go without him. He'd hate that.

We chatted for about half an hour and even exchanged photos. Damn I almost wish I lived in South Carolina so I could get whipped. Sorry but there is no way I could put any of the photos we traded up here. I would get flagged so fast.
Anyway, that was how I started my day today. I was cyberwhipped by a guy across the country who I've never met before. I don't even have to leave my house to be bad.

My husband hasn't seen them yet. And I'm willing to bet he will hate them. I will probably get a lecture about acting my age and being an adult. To which I will just stick out my tongue and skip away.
I hope it rains today so I can wear the boots on my walk. Now I just need to find a rain hat. Hmmm.

It was a fun little show. I will be keeping an eye on them and watching how they grow. I got some comics while there and also some sketches. I did buy 1 sketchbook by Bruce Bogle.
I ran into Brian while I was there and he convinced me to buy The Originals by Dave Gibbons and Creature Tech by Doug TenNapel. He is sure that I'll love both of these books. I trust him when it comes to things I'll like. He hasn't been wrong yet.
Is it bad that my almost 6 year old daughter wanted this drawing? I wanted it too so I got it. Ben Hanson did this and a few others that I got today.

I'll just have to stop off and get myself a nice latte. I deserve a nice little something.
No news on my comic today I honestly haven't had time. Yes I realize I could be working on it right now but were is the fun in that.
I am on schedule to go to Bell Con 2007 this Saturday. I am making it a family trip and in the process I'm blowing off a cub scout training thing I need to do. They have another one next month on the 11. But I'm wanting to go to the Portland Comic Show.

I have been busy updating my computer all day and I am really starting to hate this damn thing.

I have done a bit of rewriting on what I have done already and I have been trying to get a better outline done up for the whole thing. See I have been thinking about it.
I had said I would post photos of the camping trip I took way back in August. While i finally have my camera and computer working so there it is. There are a few more pictures if you click on it.

In a drunken stupor (didn't I say I thought beer was involved) my friend decided to walk across the highway. He relied on a brain damaged drunk friend to tell him it was clear. Well, it wasn't! Pedestrian vs 55mph car! Another friends dad was on duty(he's a police officer) but it wasn't his precinct. He did however loan his camera to that department and have to talk to the EMS crew that handled it. He never heard the name and definitely couldn't recognize him in the picture. Well, the EMS told my friends dad that he was embedded in the windshield of the car and they didn't even know how to start peeling him off. His leg was twisted up, around, and over his head. He lost his leg. They had to amputate just below the knee. He is now a peg leg pirate, practically a childhood dream for him. Other than that, he seems to have no lasting trauma. (He's OK in the head, sort of) Unbelievable. None of the people at the scene, including my friends dad, thinks he should have been alive.
This explains why I haven't heard from my peg legged pirate friend in a year(this apparently happened early this year).
I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry.

I have had a lot happen in a short amount of time and I am just now getting it together. So of course news comes today that a friend of mine lost his leg in a car accident. I'll post more when I get more info.
Let me give you a quick recap of the month I've had since my last post. Here it goes.....
My baby (OK, He's almost 3) had surgery last week, my husband and I are off and on so much my head hurts, my sister has been in and out of the hospital, my great nephew was hit by a car while riding his bike, a niece is missing , a best friend and her daughter have gone missing as well and then today I find out that a friend was hit by a car trying to run across the highway. Knowing my friend, I am thinking beer was involved somehow.
This is why I have gotten nothing done on my comic and why I've been gone.
I am seriously thinking of running away to someplace warm and sandy.
