wed+nesday


firstly, let me thank you guys for all of your kind words and suggestions for what you'd like to see in terms of content here. a blog isn't a blog without readers, and so i most definitely appreciate you guys and the encouragement that you all give. big love! give yourselves a round of applause.

item numba two : i had no idea that there were so many other closeted spreadsheet + organizational nerds out there. i'm glad that we're a small nation unto our tidy lil selves. bring on the pocket protectors!

three - the watchmen movie wasn't bad. given that i haven't read the book or knew a single thing about a single character before the whole thing began, i think i kept track of things pretty well. mike even liked it, which is a feat in itself. if you've got a special someone who's dying to see it, just make sure you hit the washroom beforehand. and stay away from the large diet coke - the movie's 2 hours and 45 mins long!

today: more database training. it never ends, but now i've graduate to intermediate from being an absolute noob. after work, i'm going to kick back and relax. i started yet another painting because the one i was working on over the weekend got put on hold for a lil bit - while i'm ready for the challenge, i was getting frustrated that it wasn't coming out the way i wanted to look. it'll happen eventually - i just need a bit more practice with the techniques. i also want to try out my new mat cutter - i'm so bored with the pre-cut colours. the art store by my house has a wider (brighter!) selection that i'm really excited to dig into.

i'm gonna love you and leave you today with a few links to the shops i've been crushing on lately:

Thanks for posting about the Watchmen. My husband turned me onto Comic Con about ten years ago and I've slowly become a fan of some of the items in this genre. Zach Snyder
being one of them. Can't wait to see this film.

Was Watchmen really THAT long? Didn't we get off to a bit of a late start? I don't know that it's 2 hours and 45 minutes, but nevertheless it's pretty long. And worth every penny! Ha ha - we saw it for FREE! I love FREE. I also love seeing stuff early. Before the other nerds.

because god knows i wouldn't be able to withstand the nerd stampede on friday when it releases to the general public. ;)

Have fun with your database! I'll be updating my Excel spreadsheets and sneaking peeks at the links you shared.

I went with your suggestion and gave myself a round of applause and the whole office looked at me weird...:D I never know what to think about the Watchman movie. The trailers dont' really tell you anything about it, so I've never been sure if we should watch it or not. Excellent blog!! I love the set up, usually I don't like the look of blogspot blogs, but yours is great!!
