Hey Guys!
I want to begin getting the team geared up for our second year in the annual Light the Night event. The event this year will be held on October 17th, so please mark your calendars. I'll continue to keep everyone posted as I get more information. Again, I encourage everyone to speak to their employer. Company's always jump at ways to donate to tax deductable organizations like the LLS so I doubt they'll say no to a large contribution.


Everyone who reads and writes on this blog should have already received an email invitation to the team. If you have not please use the above link to join.

Obama for Breakfast

I know we've posted multiple images of Obama made from food, but here's another one made with cereal. Just looking at it reminds me of my childhood and many Saturday mornings of overflowing bowls of Fruit Loops and milk. Ahh nostalgia.

Photoshop World!!!

Hey All,
I'm at my first Photoshop World in Boston. It's so exciting. If anyone's here give me a ring :)

So far today, I took 2 classes: Painting with Photoshop and Illustrator Down and Dirty Tricks. I got some cool new tips and techniques but overall I'm just excited about the new CS4!!! Also, Wacom announced a new revamped tablet today. They have a bunch of demos on the expo floor which I hope to check out later today. Well that's about it for now. I'll be heading back in about an hour after my lunch break but if I come across anything exciting I'll be sure to post it.

ok I had to post this cause it made me jump. Last night I went into the computer room here at mom's were Im sleeping to go to bed. We had been to a neighborhood party but I was being good and wasn't really drunk. As I was changing I turned to look at mom's computer monitor and there was a picture of marie waving at me on the screen. LOL mom has a slide show of all of her pictures and I had a folder in her computer of some of my pictures and alot of the avt parties pictures were in it. SO I edited her pictures folder so none of my pictures were on there.

Finally relaxing

I am here in NC visiting mom and I feel like I am finally relaxing. The past 3 weeks have really gotten to me I guess and I was just tired all the time and pissy at everyone. 2 more days and I will have to go back to reality but then it's another month and I actually have a weeks vacation coming up.

The Periodic Table of Typefaces

Since most of us who post/read this blog are designers of one kind or another, I thought this to be quite appropriate to post. I love it and wish I had full size poster for my wall. Yes I'm that dorky. This was created by Squidspot. They also have lots of other neat ideas/designs. Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend!

Attempt FAILED

I spend 8 hours a day infront of a computer working but while I work I have cnn/live going on my screen the whole time. I don't know if I just need the background noise or I just want to stay generally informed. Most of the news is bad news, but every so often you get those golden nuggets. Today's nugget was a bit sad but I just couldn't stop laughing.

This dude attempted to commit suicide by jumping off Niagra Falls. A nice way to go out right? SIKE! Not only did his suicide attempt FAIL but because of the force of the fall authorities found dude without any cloths! AAAAAHAHAHAHA! Is something wrong with me for having laughed at this? I mean this news report was literally the high light of my day!

If you rent from Blockbuster, STOP. This is the last straw, I've had it with them, and I'm calling for a group boycott. First they made a stink about adding my sister to my account, then they demanded that I hand over my bank account so they can fully charge me for any late videos, they hiked up their rental fees to a ridiculous amount and THEN I got a headache after getting in a fight with the store manager over the weekend. So again, if you rent from Blockbuster, don't! Explore Redbox [they're awesome], Netflix, or your local video rental. For the most part it's only $1 to rent and the local redbox isn't gonna be rude to you.

I should be Happy

I should be happy about the snow but I am so sad. I had to put Frecks to sleep on Saturday!!! I can't believe I had to put two dogs to sleep within a year and a half from basically the same thing!!!!!!! He fought the whole time he was on the table-he hated anyone touching his paws. After the second attempt I ran out of the room. I still look for him in all of his places in the house and hear the regular house sounds tht I guess I assumed were him and then realize it's not. Well it will take time I guess-he was my best friend and protector since I was 10 years old.
