Santa Claus is coming to town

I'm working on getting the weekend's update fixed; we have about 10,000 images for posting but there's been a mystery problem with the software (probably due to the bulk). I'll get it sorted out soon (it's rebuilding now).

And now on to your regularly scheduled update…

I've finished a lot of paintings lately… Here's two (there are around twenty of mine here in all that I ought to post). They're in the basement where it's kind of dark so I couldn't get a very good photo of either of them but I'm happy with how they turned out. The painting on the right took about half an hour, and the painting on the left about an hour (although it's painted over an old painting). I'm trying to get into the habit of painting faster.

Other than that, I've been getting things ready for Christmas. I guess that this is really the first Christmas that I've ever really prepared anything for (pretty bad!). Nefarious and I made a “Christmas Garden” of smaller trees and plants to put the presents under and you can see there's a behemouth wrapped up and leaning against the wall… The roll wasn't long enough to cover it all!

Since I didn't think anyone was going to get it for me I got myself an early Christmas present of Tom of Finland sheets. They're relatively “G” rated, so I don't have to worry about locking Nefarious out of my room (and anyone else that knows me wouldn't be particularly surprised anyway no matter how explicit it was).

You know, the other day I was grocery shopping, so I was on top of the cart lying horizontally like Superman gliding from item to item that I needed and I came to the realization that I don't see many people (let alone people in their thirties) doing stuff like that. I don't really know if that's a bad thing or a good thing, but it reminded me that I really do just want to be me and I couldn't care less what other people think (not that I'm not very pleased when people agree of course).

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
