Sister, Film, Clean [Oct. 23rd, 2007|06:22 pm]
Meesto's little sister has arrived! That was Friday. Also on Friday Meesto, Little Sister, and I went to see the cast and crew screening of the film that Meesto has been helping his friend out with. (Actually we both helped at assorted times. Actually our names were both plastered all over the credits. Actually I did the graphic design on the credits.) It was a horror film, which is usually not my kind of thing, but it came out quite good, considering its microbudget. If it gets into any festivals, I'll let you know.

Oh, yeah, and this:

Spring Clean, part 2. IMAGE HEAVY [Oct. 14th, 2007|06:46 pm]
Well, it's been forever since I posted. Meesto is fine and now I can go think about other things. Like art. It's seriously time for some more art. I need to go make a mess. I can't seem to do any art while sitting around waiting to find out if my sweetie is okay. But while I wasn't doing art, I was cleaning. It's a useful habit- instead of chasing my own tail until I fall down twitching, I just clean the house. The house looks awesome. And I also painted the kitchen yellow. Here's the results of my cleaning/waiting.

Silver clay bead experiments. [Oct. 1st, 2007|04:53 pm]
This last weekend I went over to my friend's house and she taught me to use precious metal clay (Art Clay brand not PMC). This is made from .999 fine ground up silver mixed with a binder that you work like clay, dry, sand up, bake in a kiln, and finally polished to get the cooked out binder off.

Here's what I made. Possibly not work safe, if your workplace is offended by replicas of ancient roman phallic symbols. )

Meesto wanted to know my results on that job meme thing, so here it is. )

My closets. Let me show them you. [Sep. 14th, 2007|11:29 pm]
You know how when I was doing the paintmo and some of you were like: wow, it's interesting to see paintings in progress, because they sure look messy and weird while they are in progress and then eventually/suddenly something happens and they become 'finished'.

My cleaning looks like that, too, all messy and horrible while it is in progress. Usually when I take pictures I point the camera and crop out the crap and don't show it to you. Not this time. Come see my messy crap, my in-progress organizing, and the organized stuff.

Meesto is home!

More Update. [Aug. 21st, 2007|08:25 pm]
He's still not home yet. The test results were as expected, they've unplugged him from the drip (yay, unplugged), he got to eat a liquid diet today (yay, gruel), and if the oral antibiotics work okay and if his temperature doesn't go back up, then the (extremely mother-hennish) doctors will really truly let him go home tomorrow morning. Oi.

I am now totally dominating the rabbit, to his extreme displeasure. (Yay, towel.)

Meesto Update [Aug. 20th, 2007|10:44 pm]
Well, he's definitely feeling better but he's still in hospital. They won't let him go until they can round up some doctors to look at test results. Possibly there will be a doctor posse blowing through in the early morning to see him and then maybe they'll let him go. Meanwhile he's been 'nil by mouth' (no food) since he was admitted. They are feeding him with sugar saline drips into his arm. When the bag runs out he stares at it hungrily and beeps for more. It's very odd.

I've now spent two whole days there hanging out at the hospital. The kitchen is a mess, I can't face dealing with the paintings, and I can not figure out how to dose the rabbit with his medicine by myself and the rabbit is looking worse. I can give him his eyedrops, but holding him still, opening his mouth, and squirting his dose down his throat seems to be beyond my powers. Maybe if I sat on him? (Kidding.)

OMG, CRAPPY Weekend. [Aug. 19th, 2007|10:05 pm]
Friday was entirely about the cleaning. Saturday was guests, errands, and Meesto feeling sick. Sunday was entirely spent in the emergency room and hospital. Relax, everyone's mostly fine. Meesto has an infected intestine thingie (OMG, don't even ask), is on an antibiotic drip, is enduring assorted indignities, is feeling much much better now, and wants me to bring him all his toys to play with tomorrow, all of them, especially his notebooks and a textbook, I have a list of what all he wants. (No laptop, they have no internet in there. Also socialized medicine rocks my socks.) Seriously he'll be fine and he'll be out end of tomorrow or the day after.

Yeah, that painting schedule is shot. On the other hand, sweetie feeling better. So yay!

It's cleaning day. [Aug. 18th, 2007|03:50 am]
I vacuumed the entire house, mopped the hard floors, did all the laundry, cleaned the bathrooms, put away dishes, made beds, folded and put away clothes, tidied the office, tidied the rabbits, and I haven't got a lick of art to show you. (And I'm totally going to sleep now, aaaaaagh.) So, how about that LJ mess.

Four fanartists at PornishPixies have had their artwork TOSed so far.

More info and what I think about this. )
