Good run, Brett...

Yeah...this is about the same expression I was wearing when Tyne nailed that field goal.

I'm not a big football fan and usually only watch a game when it's convenient, or when it's a particular game that I really, really want to watch (like last night's game), but it was still a heartbreaking loss.

Still...a great game and I'm happy for the Giants and for Manning. I hope they do well in the Super Bowl.

And...I do hope Favre comes back for another season. He's such a blast to watch.

Macromedia Freehand: Heart Skull

Macromedia Freehand: Heart Skull

Ya know... I just looked at the Calender and realized; We've only just begun the third week of 2008. This year already feels like last year (if that makes any sense).

I really hope I can make something of this year. Too many years have gone by with nothing substantial to show. No advancement. No victories. Just surviving.

Surviving sucks.

I want to thrive.

Here is one thing I did, though. I finally started doing some (very, very) simple stuff in vector via Macromedia Freehand. It's not much, but it's a start. I've been longing to learn to vectorize my art for a very long time, but I HATE vector programs. Just not intuitive at all.

Ah well...

This year I'm GOING TO start making beer and plush toys. Period. Not "I hope to", not "I'd like to", not "maybe".

I am.

I will.

I can.

And nothing, NOTHING can stop me!!

Been putzin' around making label logos for my fantasy microbrew, Dr. Zook's Hand-Crafted, Home-Brewed Black Market Beer.

I was given a Mr. Beer Home Brewing kit for Christmas and am really warming up to the ide of doing some higher quality, small-batch beers down the road so long as my interest holds...
