Sometimes life is like dreams

Been staying away from the net a bit since there were threats of a new virus around. I was worried that my computer might catch it but then again my computer might have already updated that sort of security feature, so I guess I don't have to worry.

The only thing really worrying me right now is my cat. I think she was really showing her age in the last two days, either that or it might have been a sort of revenge. Who knows? I found her peeing on my stuff that was on the floor of my bedroom. As of right now I make sure I have no more clothes on the floor and she is now banned from the closet. I really love my cat and had her since 88. I really hate to see her go. I only hope that when it is her time to go that she will go in her sleep peacefully.

Over all its been pretty strange lately

On Friday, I was broiling some trout in the usual way with those nice sweet onion rings I usually stuff in to the cavity of the fish and I was looking out the window that looked out towards the park across the street and there was a tornado. Weird, kind of like the ones I see occasionally in my dreams. It wasn't a destructive kind though because it was only a dust devil. After all I wouldn't be making conversation here if that tornado happened to be destructive. It was pretty weird considering there was no wind that day. I guess it had something to do with the heat coming off the rocks and the cool air. Hummm

The only good kind of wars are;
Played on video games
In debates
I guess board games
Tug a war
The space race
Breaking a monopoly of a companies products

Inspired by the thoughts of wishful thinking.
I only wish that people would follow the things above instead of wars that involve killing and hatred. It would be nice if people would just compromise and get along not to mention think about the others feelings.

Anyways finished I think all I could think of that would make nice business forms. See other blog. Now I got to start to work on other things like my illustrations and moving more stuff into the other web site.

I also made another peach pie. Yum! I think I have just enough peaches for one more pie but I’m not sure if I will make another or the same one. I’m kind of sick of it. I also made a nice sea food pasta on Friday. It was pretty good but I should have tried the celery before I put it in cause it ended up tasting like the smell of tobacco if that makes any sense. :p Ack its late and now I made my self hungry. I only hope I can get some sleep even though I’m hungry. I refuse to eat any thing right now since I already brushed my teeth.
As I’m writing this, I’m listening to people talk on the radio talk about nano tech and how they could potentially send a very small package to another planet and it could jump start a new livable planet. I don’t like the conversation about how the nano thingy could be as small as a virus. It really scares me. Kind of reminds me something out of Star Trek. Yikes!

Nothing sweeter
Made peach pie yesterday from the fresh peaches that came from our tree. Turned out really nice and really tasty. There's only one slice left so I'm probably going to make some more tomorrow. Its really a shame that the peaches don't really have enough time to be by them selves to fully ripen. It seems the birds, bees and mold get to them first, but I still manage. I just take the rotten side off and keep the good part. We really haven't had to much problem with worms. I only managed to find one and I gave that to one of my fish.

Today I did some searches to look for decent example for a contract to design for illustrators. The hull wasn't bad. I found some pretty good example to use. I'll probably pick and choose what I want in it. At the same time I came across some other samples of things like job jackets. I wonder if its just another form of invoices. I hope I don't have to change the ones I already have since I like the design one the ones I made. Besides I was going to make a separate art approval sheet just in case I would need one in the future. As for the invoices they're pretty much done except I'm not sure what I would put in the rights category part. But its no biggy. I still would like to get that book for illustrators business forms someplace. I wonder if that use book store that's opening very soon in my neighbourhood would possibly have it?

Its been awhile yeah I know, but that’s normal for me. As I probably said before I don't talk much. Its been awhile because I was busy with many things. For one thing I had to fix my computer and another reason was I was busy working on stuff to send to promising job/gigs. I finished that for now and I'm almost finished with designing invoices. I'm just not sure what to put in the part's for the copy rights and things that I wouldn't be responsible for in case things happen that would be out of my control. With a little research and some sleep and probably some praying, I'm sure I’ll put in the right answer.

Speaking of copyrighting, I was looking for some decent dingbats for the copyrighting but couldn't find it any where. Kind of frustrating considering that I couldn't even find my favourite forum for locating fonts. I tried this other one that I remembered of but its not as active as the other one I really liked. In the end I ended up finding some software to create my own set of fonts. Real cool since I now have my own custom set of fonts.

Other things that happened recently, last month in the park I saw something pretty amusing and you don't see that every day. I would have written about it sooner but I was like I said pretty busy. I was watching people playing soccer in the park which is right across from my house, there was this guy, for some reason and for what ever reason decided that it was ok to change near his van. Kind of interesting to see this guy butt naked and all changing in front of my eyes and maybe others at the soccer game. Yep the moon came out early that day. ;)
