The Road to Photoshop

Ok - so this is my first attempt at fiddling with Photoshop. I kind of like it. I think I'll go back and fiddle with it a little more, make it a little more - whatever it is that makes it look different - and take care of some of the shadows at the bottom.

This is the Tower of Terror at Disneyworld. Disneyworld. It really is magic. But that's another post.

Must. replace. the. ancient. pc. at. home.

I'm in a bit of a pickle. Need to do the taxes to buy a new pc. Can load the tax software on the old pc. What to do . . .

Hey, I gotta go. Maybe I'll actually get a little knitting done tonight!

A Display of Words

(laptop died - no posts lately. so sorry.)






You know those word signs that have reproduced exponentially? (I love that word. Exponentially. But if somehting happens exponentially, it always seems bad, huh? Like, the # of flu cases multiplied exponentially. Or, the number of Grackles and their associated gut-choking droppings has increased exponentially. But why can't I lose weight exponentially? Or reduce my wrinkles exponentially? Or get Thing 2 to do his homework exponentially? Oh, I digress - exponentially. Back to the subject at hand.)

You know those . . .?

And they're everywhere. They're in every goo-gah store in town. Every import store. (Import stores - but they're all in English...) Antique malls (but they're not antiques...). Department stores. EVERYWHERE!

I hereby promise to argue with those big signs telling me to live love laugh. I do already! And I dream! Every night. In color. Exponentially.

HOPE. Uh-uh.
SMILE. Why? The latest SMILE sign I saw was in the office of someone who FROWNS all the time. Guess she needs a reminder, huh?

Stop it already with the WORDS, will ya? Or at least say something else, like YOU NEED TO READ MORE (thanks, Dr. Foley). Or SMIRK. Or PONTIFICATE. Or EXPONENTIAL. LY. Ooo, I like that one.

Well, there is one I like, that I saw on a Norwegian blogger's site. JUL. Just that. Norwegian for Christmas. So pretty. Not telling me to do something. Just hey, it's Christmas, you like Christmas?
