Re:  Your crazy douchey Oscar night fiasco..

Hey…

Normally i love you guys and your completely irreverent humour - LMAO most times i visit your site but no more, no way.  I’m done with you cuz obviously there’s something more than a little bit screwy and unhealthy in a corporate culture where anyone on your team would even think that a tweet like that would be close to OK.  

Sorry, you guys really crossed the line last night - 1st, you weren’t funny and 2nd you’ve completely ruined pretty much forever (hello?  internet?  screenshots?) what should have been a wonderful magical night for an innocent (and omg so adorable with her little teddy bear purse!) 9yr old year old child.  W.T.F.???  You do realize this crap will probably now follow her forever….?
Absolutely, mock adults or even teenagers who do/say stupid things but really? you decide to pick on a little kid nominated for an Oscar on her big night? You do realize you guys Kanye’d that poor little girl, right?  Yup, you weren’t funny - you just dropped to that level of douchebaggery so low that when you open your mouths going forward people will just tune you out. Like Kanye, the apology is nowhere near enough.  Not even close. Like Kanye, when i hear your name now i only feel a shudder of revulsion & feel slightly nauseous.  
Too bad,  I really liked your site.  :(

Bought myself a little treat - a Wacom Bamboo Create drawing tablet - and drew this using the included Autodesk Sketchbook software. Both are so much easier to use than i expected i’m wondering why i never bought one before.  The design possibilities are just awesome.

This goddess sketch is for a new sculpture i’m planning, click HERE to read more…

January 4, 2013 This isn’t from today but this pic makes me laugh. From last Monday at the dr’s office. I was sitting in the examination room waiting, feeling hell and then realized I’d forgotten to take off my winter hat. Quite the look, no? ;)

January 3, 2013 Ordered this online, it’s supposed to arrive within a day. Hoping it will help with designing beads & sculptures (as opposed to the hand sketched random bits of paper I currently have trailing all over the house),

Bought the larger Create model last week which i’m currently testing out, however, not entirely convinced it’s worth double the price of this model.

A friend bought me this for my cough - traditional Chinese cough medicine that is supposed to be very effective. That last ingredient gave me some pause for thought though… LoL

Sick as a dog with laryngitis so spent New Years Eve on the couch in a blanket sipping hot lemon & ginger tea & coughing my lungs out. 

My son made me a Cuba Libre @ midnight and sat with me to ring the new year in. :)  FTR, that aged Havana Club rum was too damn good to waste on pop. I need to make some rum punch with it when I’m feeling better.
