Checking in!

Hey, all! I’m sure my queue dried up ages ago, but I’m dropping by to say I’m still here. I just finished seven straight days of cashiering; it’s wonderful to be busy! I just did NOT feel like using my computers during that time. Side effect from running antiquated registers?

I called in sick last Wednesday. I felt HORRIBLE about it - I just started working! - but my allergies were so severe I thought I’d gotten bronchitis. My aunt and grandpa dropped by during my lunch break to give me allergy meds, chicken soup, and crackers to help me feel better. <3 I bombarded myself with allergy AND cold / flu meds and I’m feeling practically normal now. Still a bit snuffly is all. I would have worked eight days if not for that sick day. Many of my coworkers are on vacation right now, so it means I’m learning fast.

A word from the wise(r): do not pig out on sugar before working around lots of people. Excess sugar depresses the immune system (which I knew, dumb me).

All in all, I’m doing swell: learning as I go, handling critique with the greatest of ease, and looking up. I had ups and downs this week due to The Circumstances, but they’re over now so my Thursday off is going to be wonderful. :D

I hope you’re all doing well, and I’ll build up a nice queue again when the time is right.

I think he is catting enough for two, maybe three cats.

MAXIMUM CAT

Cat. It is a verb now. And you know exactly what it means. Thanks, internet.

CATTING INTENSIFIES

Oh, I know what this is.  In our house this is a Frenzee.  When the cat goes bananas attacking the unseen enemy, that’s a Frenzee.
Catting is also good.

In my house it’s the Zooms, as it’s usually bookended with racing around the house like their tails are on fire.

I hate when people ask questions during movies like do you not understand that the movie purposly doesn’t tell you things in order to build suspense

archiemcphee:

“‘E’s not pinin’! ‘E’s passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! ‘E’s expired and gone to meet ‘is maker! ‘E’s a stiff! Bereft of life, ‘e rests in peace!”

This giant sculpture of a distcintly dead parrot has been installed by UKTV channel Gold in London’s Potter’s Field Park to celebrate the upcoming TV broadcast of the Monty Python’s final performance of their “Monty Python Live (mostly)” farewell show. The 49-foot-long fiberglass version of the “Norwegian Blue” from Monty Python’s beloved “Dead Parrot Sketch" was created over a two month period by a team of three sculptors led by artist Iain Prendergast.

"If you hadn’t nailed ‘im to the perch ‘e’d be pushing up the daisies! ‘Is metabolic processes are now ‘istory! ‘E’s off the twig! "

Mister Polly Parrot will soon be installed outside the 02 Arena where the performance of “Monty Python Live (mostly)” is set to take place on Sunday July 20th, 2014. So you’d better start preparing your silliest walk straight away.

'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!”

Another brilliant russian artist: Демидова Наталья Юрьевна

Natalya Demidova has started as an animation artist at the animation studio “Soyuzmultfilm”, but in 2000 she left the animation field and became an illustrator.

The artwork you see in this post are her illustrations for “Kashtanka”, a book by A.P. Chechov. The method used in this art is the oils on celluloid, and every painting has been done in just one session!

Natalya’s students think that famous animator Alexander Petrov took a lot of inspiration from her work, as they have been working together at some point.

if i ever misgender you or use slang (bro, man, gurl, dude) that makes you feel even slightly uncomfortable please tell me because your gender identity and comfort is more important than any word i may use to refer to you
