Gosh, I'm so officially almost 30. How did that happen? I cannot be almost 30. Nor do I look or at almost 30. In any case I had a nice weekend with friends. Went to the Stammtisch Saturday night and had a good time chatting with everyone there. Some of the ladies stayed to wish my a midnight happy birthday and [profile] untitledno8 made me this awesome birthday cake. It's with strawberry and creme with tiramisu.



Went to Woytons on sunday to relax and chat some more. I spent a very relaxed and quiet birthday the way I wanted it and even managed to work on my mcshep match.

Thank you to everyone who sent me a message and wished my a happy birthday. That meant a lot.
Also thank you to [profile] realproof, [personal profile] animotus and [personal profile] berlinghoff79 especially.

Today was the first day back to work after two weeks absense. I want to go back and have a vacation seriously. I've had a stomach ache the entire day and a tension headache. I made one and a half layouts and had a curry sausage. I first thought my stomach ache came from hunger. It feels like hunger pain. But I have no idea. We will see. Tomorrow I have my quarterly evaluation meeting. Happy times. Not.

I had intended to go to Ikea today to get some work tables and shelves. But I just couldn't be arsed, so I watched True Blood, Leverage and So you think you can Dance instead.

Post five or more songs starting with the letter you receive. I was given J by [personal profile] melloniel.

Hey guys, I'm making myself scarce again but I do have my reasons. Mainly RL both work and privately. Hopefully next weekend I will catch up woth my shows and read all the fanfiction I've bookmarked.

Anyways, I'm making a few changes to my lj, so this is a test entry for me.

Maj. John Sheppard: Rodney, you're drooling over a Wraith!
Dr. Rodney McKay: I know, I... disgust myself sometimes.


Happy belated birthday [livejournal.com profile] beet and [livejournal.com profile] mamoru22. And yes, I realize it's long ago!


View the icons here.


ETA: how about we do this meme thing where you ask me questions and I'll try answer them as best as I can. I'm sure there is a lot you guys don't know about me and I need to watch the comment threads to design them. So if you do have questions, fire away.

Today feels odd. I finished the layout for a webpage about camping utilities which I think turned out quite interesting. Met Tina on the train shortly <3 and feel completely wacky today. I think I'm learning to be less tense about work and my respinisiblities and that it actually is a lot easier when I don't worry so much!

Anyways, [livejournal.com profile] charlidos made me very happy this morning by linking to this Jason Momoa interview.
Oh I love the Boys!!! He even calles it that. Surfing and vacation with Joe and living together when they film. I'm going to a happy place. It includes farting and toilet jokes.

[livejournal.com profile] charlidos linked the interview here and also included THAT PICTURE!

Also [livejournal.com profile] aesc has icons and [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon has picspam.

Anyways, we will see the next soccer game at work today and then I can loo forward to the next Ollian vid.So, I'm still on a bit of a break so I'm pimping my new Ollian icons for a bit. Hope I don't spam you!

Thursday, all art directors in the company I work for went to the cancom Adobe Masters Tour and you know, I really want that Suite now.

It includes All Adobe CS 3 products like InDesign, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Fireworks (Fireworks is much better a optimizing images for the web than photoshop is), Illustrator, Flash, Dreamweaver, Soundbooth, Premiere, Aftereffects and this absolutely amazing video recording programm called "On Location," which was a program that anabled you to record with a camera directly onto your compuer and edit while recording. So amazing!!

They promised to forever changing the way people think about still photography and he was kind of right ;) Though I have no means to try it.

One of the 3 referees was incredibly funny. He kept trying to use Photoshops amazing healing powers ;) And sang. They were very amarican, honestly. hey kept saying, "Is das nicht cool" and the accents were awesome.

In any case, in the current photoshop Version you can import and and retouch videos frame by frame and actually apply filters to the video. Also, if you import a photoshop file into flash, you can choose to insert all layers.

Now I really wish I had more time to play. I want to desperately to do that!!!

Dear Flist, I'm very busy at work, so I only took a quick glance at you. That said... your heroes squeee is really really evil!!!!!!!!! I will not get home for quite some time.

Also..I'm very happpy with my little cornor in the SGA fandom :) *snuggles*

Oh and btw... project SGa season2 icons is going well.... *g* I already made quite a few, less with variations and it's a lot of fun. I've been getting inspired by some wonderful people and well... I tried out some stuff. It still looks like my stuff, but it also looks different. At least I hope. Hopefully this will get me some fanart ideas that seem doable.

Here are the examples I already uploaded to my icons.



If you have suggestions, I'm listening.*g*

Omg, I finished the Monster Project. *breathes*
I'm hopelessly behind on my work, it's sad and I've been pulling overtime.. lots of it. Went in ealier, staid later, but something I guess it just cannot be helped. Besides, the webpage I made rocks.

Anyways, remember what I talked about last weekend? Well... I devised a plan. A cunnign plan. Since I'm missing SGA lots and lots and have no idea for fanart... actually, fleeting ideas that disappear once I get home, I decided to cap SGA Season 2 and make icons for each episode.

The only thing I don't like.. or rather, that bothers me, is that they looks so different from what they look at my flatscreen, but I guess that is a battle noone ever wins.

Well..we will see how this icon from tuesday, which I just improved at work to look good on CRT looks on my Flatscreen.

ps: I'm being more quiet on lj, because we've gotten the order from up on the food-chain to surf less :/ *cuddlesall*

It's the last episode I'm actually spoiled about. *g*
OMG, I cannot wait.

Work is quite hectic, which is why I haven't been posting amongst other things. Barely had any time to myself in the recent weeks... but come saturday I got 2 free weeks. I have loads of creative things I want to do. Like utilize my acrylic colors that I bought and my canvas. I haven't done anything like that in ages!!!

I did however, start a small Heroes icon batch and 3 James Bond icons. I should not feel proud of that fact. Also my EX-Posed redesign is coming nicely.

Hopefully I will be able to put something up soon, cos I have tons of new Texture Scans and Stock. Actually, I have so much stuff scanned I can regularly post for years to come.

Anyways, went to see absolutely rocktastic gigs last Wednesday and last night. Muse and the Cooper Temple Clause.

The previous pants weren't all that great. *gah*
The Noisettes played before Muse. And honestly, it was horrendous. As was last nights 2 other bands called LeoCanDive and The Films. The latter two only created noise and bad Highschool tunes and were boring and monotonous! And one guitarist looked like mark Own. More amusing even. The LeoCanDive guitarist looked very much like Dom Monaghan! Even more so later, because he stole all of Charlies Lost outfit.

I have so much love for the coopers right now it is not funny!!!! They were all hot! And they were so awesome!!!! They played so well. Especially "Damage" blew me off my feet. I hope to share a few songs later tonight as teasers. Because they are just awesome.





ps: those pics are form [livejournal.com profile] cerri44. Will try posting my own once I'm home!!!

ps: do you notice the slight enhancement to my css style? And would anyone be interested in me sharing the code?

I haven't been very posty, and the truth is, I cannot keep up. I just cannot at this moment. I have a million emails to answer, a million lj things, just rushed by me and every day I wonder, wtf, this show aired already?

I finally watched the Prison Break S2 premiere. Which rocked. And more X-Files.

But that's that. Grandpa's birthday was as expected. And the *other* new piggies are there. Spent sunday brunching *g*.


Anyways, I revamped my lj to something simpler. Let's see how long that will hold. I'm sure there are still some bugs too. anyways, I like what happened to the tags page. And the layout is sort of meant to put focus on the content :)
