    I hate that ironed look and so many girls where I live have it. The black guys are now wearing 1970's afros with no problems and they look great. Everyone looks best with the hair they were born with - they look like a real person, not a doll. My ex-childminder shaved her head (Nigerian) and boy does she look sexy and no way can pale people compete - we tend to have lumpier heads or look like we're recovering from something bad. My eldest has wild curls and hates them, even though I told him girls love them (his girlfriend will back me up on this) and will insist on getting them cut, but not a severe as he used to.

    So guys and gals, enjoy what you were given as there is always someone, somewhere jealous of what you've got.

    I'd go Grace Jones and make you all afraid. FEAR ME MINIONS. Oops, got a bit carried away.

    My dad's always had something of a fro, I doubt I'd even recognize him if he ever got rid of it, but I've never liked growing my hair too long. Especially in this weather.

    One afternoon I was cutting grass and it got so bad that it felt like my brain was cooking.

    Eesh, I hate heat.

    I wish I could have long hair. I used to, but it's thinning out on top and it would just look too awful. Balding sucks.

    If any female CA artist peeps know their Jung/Myers Briggs personality type and wouldn't mind me asking them three not-so-personal questions, shoot me a message. Fueled by my own curiosity, I'm drawing comparisons between MB and another type of psychological evaluation.

    If you don't know your type, there are a ton of free tests out there. Just google it.

    Few days ago an Ant crawled across computer screen, flicked it with the usual thumb & index technique and thought I missed because it was still there. Had a closer look and I must've decapitated the poor bastard cause he had no head! Felt guilty for half the day till I had dinner. I even failed to kill a mouse once after the trap just snapped on his leg and the wee fella was making a hell of a racket dragging that shit down the corridor. Ended up letting it go in the end, just don't have it in me :/

    I caught a mouse in a glue trap a few months ago. I prefer glue traps because they're non-lethal even though they're still painful and scary to the mice. Anyways I gently pull the mouse off the trap and decided to keep it until I got the chance to re-release it back into the wild. Obviously I didn't want to just let it go outside my house because it would just come back in.

    So I took an old hamster cage, put some bedding in it, some water and some bread/peanut butter. Of course the thing was terrified of me and tried desperately to escape.

    One day I go to check on the mouse. I opened up the box and it was sitting in a big pile of bedding surrounded by squirming pink things. When I first caught it, I assumed it was male. I was wrong. So then I had no choice but to keep it.

    For some reason, I couldn't figure it out she died but her babies didn't (at first). So I did some research on the internet and found out how to take care of them. All but one died the first night. Two right in my hand. I was keeping them close to me for warmth. I built an incubator for the remaining mouse baby and hand fed it warm milk per internet instructions. It survived an extra day and a half. But it too passed on.

    I will never, ever, do that again. Whatever I catch will go right back out.

    I'm getting pretty damn tired of every other customer service person decreeing my transaction as "perfect."

    No, it is not perfect!

    I simply ordered a beverage, you dispensed it, and then I gave you some money.

    Perfection does not factor into it. . .

    Where the hell did this come from?

    Oh man I am ecstatic right now.

    Reverge Labs has openings for clean up duty on their Skullgirls project (something I've been keeping my eye on since high school). They don't need a portfolio (though it helps), instead they test you by giving you a fake assignment and decide from there.

    I seriously doubt I passed, but it was the best kick in the ass I've gotten in a long time and it was long overdue.

    Best thing to happen to me all summer, hands down.

    Appearantly they're trying out positive reinforcement with customers, trying to lessen the numbers of rude people, gold-star-in-your-book psychology bullshite.

    But, this comes outvreally deuche-y

    I'll go:

    Today I think I finally know how people who only post art on DeviantArt feel like once they first post on ConceptArt. I was posting some poems on little poetry communities and receiving basically only positive feedback. Against my own wisdom, I blindly believed that positive feedback and was feeling sort of decent about myself. And then I posted on another, much more professional website that actually publishes the works of renowned contemporary poets throughout the world. My poems were basically ripped to shreds. Unfortunately the poems were NOT critiqued so constructively as one might be on CA even if they came from DA. My poetry was called bland, immature, juvenile, and cliche'. One person even quoted Keats who said that "if poetry come not as naturally as the leaves of a tree it has better not come at all" and that perhaps it shouldn't come from me. And then I found myself with my guitar struggling to find a chord progression, a melody... ANYTHING (other than some stupid little riff I wrote that sounded a bit like Opeth) that I can build a song out of. If the man himself is the medium of the artwork, it's days such as these that give me cause to question my own self worth. And with this (and other sources) the depression is seeping slowly but steadily back in.

    And with that I close my random thought. Mine wasn't so cheerful, but that doesn't mean that yours has to be about struggle.
    It's not your writing, it's your world view that is so goddamn naive. You really think that CA is 'superior' to DA?
