Things on my mind

  • The most surprising Internet gossip I’ve seen in a LONG time.
    I have no idea why this surprised me so much, but it did. Congratulations to Jem and Karl!
  • This text effect.
    I don’t know that I’d call it “letterpress” per se, but I do like it and I’ve been wondering what fancy things to do in Photoshop to achieve it. Then I saw this tutorial!
  • Swine Flu
    Epidemics annoy me, I think. Perhaps it is because I am on the West coast and therefore feel less likely to be affected? Whatever it is, I still love piggies and I will wash my hands a lot but I am not panicked about Swine Flu.
  • Beta-testing Melly.me
    Melissa (formerly of Guitarangel.net) has been redesigning her site on the sly, and I got to be a beta tester! It is super cool and I hope she releases it soon!
  • Heidi’s surprise visit

    Daniel’s sister Heidi called me at 8:30pm on Sunday like, “HI I AM 10 MINUTES OUTSIDE OF PORTLAND. SURPRISE!” Apparently she decided to get in her car and drive and then after a while decided to head to Portland. From North Idaho. Making it a 7.5 hour drive to get to Portland. (She might be crazy!)

    I took yesterday off of work to hang out, and we went to breakfast and coffee and Powell’s. Daniel got his hair cut and then he had to go to work, so we hung out at the coffeeshop for a while before she had to take off to go back home. It was nice to have the day off and great to see Heidi.

What’s up with everyone else on the Intarwebs? Anything fun happen lately?

    I am still shocked that Jem is pregnant!

    I love that text effect and I didn’t know it was called letterpress until I read this! Thanks for sharing that.

    I feel like my internet life is pretty dead, I haven’t been blogging and Snark is moving right now D:

    Eeeee, I’m so glad you’ve been halping me! :D WOO for Jem n’ Karl, I remember when I found out a while back I was totally floored. XD Happy for them!

    That’s so cool your sis-in-lawcame to visit! :D I love fun surprises like that, it sounds like you had a great time.

    I like these “things on my mind” posts! The multi-topic thing can be quite refreshing. ^^
