    I just had someone tell me to "do some research" because I didn't believe the world was controlled by the Vatican. :lol:

    Well if they're going to lose the argument then it makes sense they'd want to lose it to someone with the necessary facts to back it up :p

    Wow am I tired. I've got to say that chasing around a three-year-old and six-year -old at Disney World must be on par with Olympic time trials (pick any event).

    Best comment came from T3V1 in Peter Pan: We're really flying! (combined with the look of wonder was priceless).

    Both V1 and V2 took Jedi Training. It was going well until storm troopers charged onto the stage and V2 was caught out alone (I'm sure he was a pretty nervous 3YO) -- he did his best to hold them off with his light saber until the instructor planted himself between the strom troopers and his little padawan. Then Darth Vader arrived (complete with smoke, loud music and a booming voice) ... it was just too much and V2 was reduced to tears. But V1 stayed and fought bravely, including a leaping head chop when it was his turn to fight Darth Vader -- easily the most impressive blow to the Sith during the show.

    That's cool T2 it sounds like you and your fam had a great time.

    Well I had my cool sounding thread hijacked to the dangerous angles because it apparently causes religious debates.

    Dang, I was all prepared to make a big 1,500th post extravaganza but apparently I've already missed it. Oh well, I can save that for number 2,000!

    I almost never look at my post counts. I suppose I will be paying attention to them at some point when it gets near an interesting number.

    A dust cover of snow on the ground today. Spring is tentative.

    I'm going to take the pyramid painting and spider painting off the wall today and either find another old painting to finish or start a new one. I have a number of concepts I'm working with I just have to find a solid line to follow.

    No Waitrose in Ireland...

    I hate my neighbours. I really really do. I had a passive-aggressive note taped to my door because apparently i slammed the door at 3 am. I have never before had any kind of BS from neighbours but in this house? ffffffff..... You'd think if i was habitually too loud, the time I lived next door to my landlord would have revealed it.

    Ah well. at least my annual April fools LJ post netted me a panicky transatlantic phone call :lol: by the end of it i was laughing my head off and my friend was threatening to fly over and cut my hands off with a machete.

    So I took down the paintings and rolled them. I was considering taking a photo of my workspace for the blog but decided I should do some more written pieces to balance my visual.

    This one is going to be huge. Bigger than the other ones. 60" x 60" I am pretty sure the theme will be sadness as a sin. I still don't know what route exactly. I am considering abstract with some in depth attention to the textures. I also have considered using a form or several forms. As far as colour goes I might play with black and white for a while and add some colour later.

    that's weird, my IP address on my desktop seemed to have changed itself. I noticed it when my unified remote app wouldn't be recognised. As far as I know my router is configured for static IPs for wireless tech. I'm confused...

    I am to help fix a technical problem with our print department, and after a meeting I asked a colleague to please forward the e-mails she exchanged with a service provider in which they discussed the problem.

    Now I know they are the PRINT department, but I DID NOT EXPECT to get those e-mails, neatly ordered, on paper. Print is a state of mind, I guess :)

    Well I didn't do at all what I said I was going to do when it came to making the new painting. I was going to do some sketches and decide on an image, start with a monochrome .... yada yada .... Did none of that. I went downstairs at around 9pm last night and just attacked that wall with a brush and some free will and I got to sleep around 4am.
