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:
