slr2moons: a self-portrait, of me in my usual habitat: in front of my computer monitors! (Draco guh! X3)
I'm back in OR. It was great visiting home and seeing a good chunk of the extended family. Usagi survived the trip, thankfully! I was worried last night when walking back to my apartment through half-melted snow slush and ice, as the footing was VERY bad and I almost fell splat on the ground three times. That would not have been good. But I made it through the nasty with no mishaps. Yay!

Now! The good stuff. How about an impromptu update in general? Shigoto is first, since that's what most of you are really interested in:

Shigoto, original manga, and fanfic updates! )

I really need to buy a new tower. Or have Utena's shell given new innards. X| Nothing against Usagi here, but I miss my lovely widescreen 21 inch monitor, which has been turned off ever since Utena's death.

But mostly b/c I can't burn backup DVDs until I have that new tower. )
Aw, hell. *grits teeth and deletes Wanted, Naruto-proto chapter, and Naruto vol 21 from Tsukushi* There. That ought to last me about a month.  *cries*

(no reason for the icon, I just felt like looking at it) :3 

ETA: This post does NOT mean I don't want you to comment, email, or phone. I DO want to hear from you guys. If you catch yourself thinking "Maybe I should wait, since she's so busy..." DON'T. Wakatta??

Urgh. If I had a designation for page difficulty higher than pink/Page from Hell, my current page of Captive 2 would definitely qualify. It's a review of volume 1, with tons of floating text, cute captions, chibi characters, sparklies, flowers, vines, and hand-written FX and asides. Which would be bad enough on their own. Except this page was printed in color, painted with markers or watercolor over EVERYTHING. No white space at all.  And as a black and white page of manga, all those pretty colors are turned into dots. *headdesk*

I've been working on it all day. I take breaks and letter pages from other titles, but I always come back to it. Urgh. If only I could let myself work half-assed....*headdesk* The arrival of  Captive 2 is why I've become silent again. --;;;


My first laptop computer arrived yesterday. An XP machine, b/c no way in hell am I touching Vista. Now I can leave the house to GET OUT and work away in a Starbucks or something. I'm pretty sure I'll name her "Usagi". I'd like to get a small 5 x 7 drawing tablet for her, which I plan to dub "Luna". Heeee. :3 Of course, this also means I now have three computers. ^^;;;; Let my geeky status be known!!!!! *flings out arms in acceptance*

I've finally broken Tsuwabuki. I slammed off the backspace key by typing too fast and furious, and it must take special tool or something to get it back on. I've reattached many a popped keyboard key, but Tsukwabuki isn't your normally constructed keyboard. Woe. It's only taken me two days to become accustomed to not using the backspace. I do a lot of highlighting and retyping. Heh. :P Tsuwabuki-kuuuuuuun....gomen.....T.T But at least I didn't drop him.

Osu, minna! Meet my newest default icon. ^^V Me likey. Another self-portrait, of course.

It's been a while, so here's a shigoto update. ^^


That's it for now, minna. Time for me to get cracking on some extra Honey pages! Oh yes, and I decided my new keyboard is named Tsuwabuki. And I've already dropped him. But just once. ^^;;;

Shoujo Editor #3 really tweaked the dialogue for Wanted, changing words on almost every page...of the entire volume. O.o Thankfully 95% of the corrections are just that, text changes, which are easy. Open page, make changes, save, bitmap, save again. Easy, if tedious. I'm about half-way through the book now. Five days of effort so far. Wheee!!!! The not so great thing about tons of corrections is I have to balance them with prelettering, and that can be fun. Meh. The definitely not so great thing about them is they come as a pdf file, which means I have to open Acrobat Reader. And that program eats RAM like Naruto on ramen. --;;; I can't listen to my mp3s, I have to be careful about watching avis, pages take forever to load, etc etc etc. Oh well, I'll live. I don't really mind corrections since they improve the book, so onward to the horizon! Though since I'm stuck in the doldrums, I'm gonna have to row. Oog.

Thanks to the small blurb on the lower left-corner of page 334 in March's Shojo Beat issue, I can now reveal the identity of New Title 2. ^^ I know a couple of you are very curious about this title, so here 'tis!!!!



And the other reason I'm genki!! Anthy is here!!!!!!!!! XD Anthy is the name of my 2nd drawing tablet, the one I'll be using with Utena. *clutches Anthy's huge shipping box to her chest and strokes it* I haven't taken her out yet....still must finish prelettering....but now that she is here, and I no longer have to wait until Doumyouji (work tablet) is free....*eyes sparkle* Just imagine the possibilities!!!

The goal is to draw something EVERY SINGLE DAY!! KYAAAA!!!!!! *reverently places Anthy safely on the floor and then runs in happy circles* Eeeeheeheehee!!! XD XD XD
