So, you guys have probably noticed the lack of posts, and art, and everything like that over the past week.

This is because I got a new Mac! mel06 ordered it for me, and it came on Monday, and it is very exciting! I've been having lots of fun noodling around with it, but I don't have any art software yet, which...kinda sucks? It's a little hard to get stuff done when I have to go back to the old computer all the time!

Anyway, on Friday, I got a package from Mere!

Watch the video to see the package with special surprise ending AND meet my parents! Yes, they make an appearance one time only! (for now).

Also, I've been playing on Gaia a bit. quizzicalsphinx has been being my sugar mama and gave me lots of gold, which makes it way more fun than it is when you start from scratch. My poor avatar, though. He really needed to belong to someone with better taste:

A bunch of hogwarts_elite people started messing around on Gaia this week too, so. Awesome!

I think that's all for now, I just wanted to say hello, and yes, I am alive and watching Die Hard with my dad.

<3 you all!

You have awesome parents :)
So all those things were wrapped in a shape of a pig? That must have taken a ton of time. I don't think I would have the patience to arrange everything and keep it all in shape.

Were you on your Mac (which one did you get?)? I heard that distinctive "dunk" noise when you press a key and it is invalid (or something). Since I wasn't pressing anything when I heard it, I assume it wasn't mine.

I do have awesome parents!

And yup, i got a shiny MacBook Pro, and I was on it, testing out iMovie! wooo!

Yay! I am glad you liked it! I was going to send a card that said "Happy president's day!" but then I figured, eh, too late!


These videos make me want to send you mail. Is that part of your plot?

That's it EXACTLY! If you send me mail, your mail will get to star in an entertaining video!

What software do you need? Is this your first Mac? (If so, welcome to the club, and please have a cup of kool-aid on your way in.)

No! This is my...fifth mac? And the computer I had growing up was an Apple IIgs. But my last Mac is closing in on its sixth birthday, so it was time for an upgrade. I got a MacBook Pro and it is pretty sweet! But I will take the kool-aid because it looks delicious!

Really right now I just need PhotoShop, though I'm considering getting one of the Adobe suites so I can have Illustrator and some other doodads as well?

Ahhh, gotcha. I finally broke down and bought a copy of Photoshop CS2 sometime last year and it's shiny (or maybe the year before...). Most everything else I use daily (except for iLife '08, which did not ship with Leopard *grr*) is freeware.

I'm jealous of your MacBook pro, but considering I rarely travel with my computer these days, I'm fine with my shiny iMac, which is my third Mac, not including school-related or family computers. :)

Yeah, I tend to split my time between three separate locations on an ordinary week, so the laptop was necessary. The funny thing about the iMac is that I honestly didn't even buy a new Mac because it was dying-- I did because my laptop is!

Psst, Mel's lj name doesn't have an underscore. :P

Fiona loved your video! She watched the whole thing and was smiling practically the whole time. She even called you a kitty!

Oh, man, that is the cutest thing ever! I AM A KITTY.

Gaia is basically my geeky secret.
I've been on the site for 4 years now. My username is Zooplankton.

Your family needs to get to know my family. They would be best friends.

And your joy in opening packaging rivals even mine! I shall have to find your address and send you a Cape Cod Care Package sometime. I send those to the poor people who can't live on Cape Cod and like the weird things I find at the beach and downtown!

Also, I have been asleep since I took my meds an hour and a half ago. So I am not really here!
