After a full seven years, the 12-foot-tall, iron-clad, firebreathing Stickle has once more found himself behind a guitar, screaming random obscenities into a microphone at a terrified smattering of (some unusually tame) teenagers.
Just the way it should be, I think.
Rowie's walking. Haven't snagged any pictures. She fears the camera, and plops down on her butt the moment she sees me coming with it, so you'll have to take my word for it.
We celebrated her first birthday on the tenth. I'm pretty sure she got everything on her wishlist except a doomsday device. She'll have to wait until she's at least ten before she gets one of those.
Found a better Linux distro, too. Got my tablet working. For the adventurous, try www.mepis.org.
Also joined up with Gaia, since I'm up all night after putting Rowie to bed now that there's no work to get up for in the morning. Catching up on my manic online habits. Look up Randomly Exploding Girl when you get the chance. I've sketched myself a siggy pic, and am uploading it to my scrapbook. It'll be my first attempt at doing lineart in the natively Linux vector program, SodiPodi.
Also, Sarah, Jess:
I lost the postcard, and thus your mailing address! Sorry about that. I really, really did mean to reply.
*hugs to anyone who's still out there*
I'll try not to disappear again.
*peeps out from brainhole of eternal laziness for a moment*
Gah, sunlight! Still need more sleep. Anybody awake?
Switched over to linux for some insane reason. Really great stuff. For the bored (and prepared -- you should really set up an extra hard drive/partion before you do it), try www.ubuntulinux.com
. I'll be messing around with Inkscape, SodiPodi, and The GIMP on and off for the next few months, and maybe eventually I'll have some artwork to submit.
Still struggling with tablet support, but I'll get that hooked up eventually.
Rowie has many little teeth, and is standing up on her own. Her first word was "Kitty!" (she says "Kiddehkiddehkiddeh! *squeal* KIDDEEE!" at first sign of Skitter or Noogies). She's considering walking and is already trying to levitate people/crush their tracheas/tracheae (how do you pluralize that? Pretty sure it's tracheae...) with her mind.
I'll sort through all that I've missed here eventually. Also got some postcards/letters to reply to.
*scampers back into own skull and goes to sleep*
