Lost in the wonderful land of dA

It’s hot. And I mean really hot! If someone said to me, “how hot is it?” I would have to reply with, “dude, it’s damn hot!” It is so hot that every morning I wake up feeling sick, the kind of sick you get from heat stroke. It takes almost a full hour of sitting in front of the air conditioner to make me feel human again, and that is considerable.

My iPod arrived yesterday and I even had to sign for it at the door. Mum ran over, took it from my hands and proudly stated, “you can’t have this until Christmas young man!” What a sadist. So there, under the tree sits my iPod and my Lord of the Rings: Return of the King extended box set. There are probably a few other things for me too, but I don’t know what they are and right now all I can think about is my iPod. I wanna take my (20 something gigabytes) music with me everywhere I go, especially in the car, but I am so very impatient. In fact, I just might be the most impatient person in the world.

deviantART has been keeping me fairly busy, getting accustomed to the way things work and just getting to know the other staff has been a lot of fun. I have also noticed that my position as staff has earned me a few more people on my watch list, it’s a shame they didn’t watch me before, but I am not going to complain. I also purchased a prints account over there a few days ago, so anyone who wishes to purchase my photography can now do so.

Some may notice that I have deleted several themes from the theme selector. This is mostly because many of them were simply a variation on a theme, so I am trying to give each theme it’s own character and flare. I also made a new theme called Broken Canvas, which is based on $Phae‘s website. $Phae is another administrator from deviantART and after I saw her website I immediately sought out permission to make a theme based on her site. A special thanks to $Phae for giving me permission and I am told that *knock is responsible for the leaf graphics, thanks guys. If you wish to activate the new theme, click here.

    Heya besticles. How goes it.

    It’s pretty hot here too. But being a country bumpkin myself it’s all too familiar and I can imagine how bloody hot it is there too!!

    Keep ya chin up. And the air con.

    I love being able to play with my toys before Christmas, it’s so cool. I just need to figure out which toy to buy this year. :-)

    Has the weather been as crazy out bush as it has been down here in the big smoke? Can’t decide if it wants to be hot and sunny or just unbearably muggy and wet. Wonder what we all did before the invention of airconditioning…. been so long since I lived without one…
