Up and at 'em

I finished one of the banner ads yesterday (finally!). Two more at a minimum today and five more would be marvelous (and impossible but I can at least get the prep work for the last three completed).

Loki was startled awake at the first fourth of July BOOM! last night but didn't bother waking up for the rest of them.

The handy plastic measuring vessel I've been using to make my bullet-proof tea proved to not be bullet-proof. I filled it with 8oz of water and drip drip drip drip. I moved the water to a glass and carried on but the stick blender wouldn't fit inside. I transferred it once again to a nifty metal container that Cro purchased and it was perfect except the metal container can't be used in the microwave. First world problems. :P

Happy 4th


The horse I've gotten back on is trotting along so far! Clippity clop and some weight did drop!

I'm taking half of the day as weekend and the other half to work more on those banner ads. I had planned to finish at least 3 of them yesterday and ended up not even finishing one. However! I was given a sample someone else did for them. They were hoping I could use it as influence because they like how the text is animated. The sample was an actual Flash file so I was able to see the code used and deconstruct how the animation was being made.

Since it's learning new stuff with only a sample but no instructor, it's slow going but also so cool (other than learning something new on deadline is crazy! lol). I am learning new techniques that I will be able to use on future projects. Also I am able to glean from actionscript code used. It's one of those "what is seen can't be unseen" situations but in a very good way!

Oh, I know, boring work talk. You can skip that last paragraph…  no you can't if you've already read it.  hehehe

One of our neighbors has a new car alarm. I think it's going to be going off lots tonight.

wah wah wah wah
WAH! WAH! WAH! WAH!

BOOM BOOM BOOM

WAH! WAH! WAH! WAH!

dad!

I have too many projects suddenly but I can't say no to anything when there is weekend time available for me to work. Still, the pile of projects has me feeling a little stressed. I think my dream last night was in response to the stress… I dreamed that dad and mom were visiting me! Dad was visiting to help me with my woes. :) It's always so wonderful to have a person on your side that would do anything to help you. He was sitting at our little table when I walked in and after talking with me and fixing things he asked "You wouldn't happen to have any iced tea would you?" Just the way he would say it! I said I might and if I didn't I would make some.

It was great to see my dad… even if it's just in a dream. <3

And back to my pile of work, things seem more in control today. I had to ask a client to clarify a few things and that clarification came through this morning. Isn't it funny how clients can be so busy with their own projects that they seem to think we are mind readers. Haha… I do try and am fairly good at digging in attempt to find information on my own. Still, it makes a project go faster if they give me all the info.

And that concludes a boring work post which I'll try to keep to a minimum.

Yesterday's recommitment to my diet has me feeling good today. It may be a long road ahead but at least I'm back on the horse and no longer walking in the mud.

a new start :: vroom vroom

July 1st. Today I'm officially back on the horse, meaning I am committed to stop being lax with my diet and will demand results.

I will give reports of weight change at the end of every week (like below). Yeah, it's a Wednesday so it's an odd day to begin, but oh well, we all have to start somewhere.

Today is the beginning of something beautiful! vroom vroom

Strange dreams and more talk of kittens

Strange dream… you know how sometimes you will dream that you go out and forget part of your clothing? Maybe your shoes, or your pants, lol. Well I dreamt that I went out with my gall bladder on the outside of my body… like maybe I forgot to tuck it in as people sometimes do their shirts into their jeans. But forgetting to tuck in an internal organ and having to hold it in my hands? In the dream it was flat and squarish so maybe it was actually my liver. I'm not sure what gall bladders look like. Very very odd.

But in less strange news, it's Friday!! And I got confirmation that a project I had recently quoted will be ready for me to begin soon. I also got a new client referral from people I worked with/knew at my old agency 9-5er. Awesome when I get new clients and especially when I get them from word of mouth.

And in kitten news (or not really news but interesting). A lady I used to work with has been fostering kittens for a good while. She reported on facebook that she has fostered 41 so far. Anyway, look at this little guy and his party-colored eyes. So cool.
