Sundry Things and Guitar Strings

I stayed up way too late last night playing with my new tablet. Once I figured out how to force the eraser end to be an eraser in GIMP, it was a lot of fun. ^_^ Today just dragged on at work, and I ended up leaving early. I have the LASIK consultation with the opthamologist tomorrow morning (almost noon, don't panic), and I figure that after, I'll just head to work early and still get out earlier than usual even after making up the half-hour from tonight.

The internets was broken again when I got home. I managed to get the guitar restrung while I waited. Three icontests issued new challenges today (including torchwood_lims), so I need to get those opened, and get screencaps, etc. Got a new set of icons up at mandydaxicons.

I hope the doctor doesn't lecture me about how I need to take my contacts out at night. I've been sleeping with them in since high school, and getting free of contacts is one of the reasons I'm going to get my eyes lased. Every eye exam, tho, I get it... e_e;;

I'll try to at least collect some images for the icontests and get some ideas going tonight.

Hrm, I should finish that mood theme I started, as well.

Your new pad sounds pretty neat! Especially with it being pressure sensitive. Do you have it mostly figured out? New toys are so much fun :)

I hope your appointment went well.

Yeah, it's much better now. Like the mouse, it's weird at first, but once I get used to the fact that it's a point to point thing, it will be much more natural and easy to use. I've started using it to write text in my own hand on icons, and I'm liking the results.

More on the appointment at my next post.

I bet the text with your own handwriting looks pretty cool on your icons. Neat idea!

It's very cool. I don't need a handwritten-looking font when I can just handwrite it. I'll post them all up in my icon journal (hopefully) next week. I have one I think is for sure a winner, but other people come up with their own amazing icons, too. ^_^ We shall see.
