I turned 24 today. Also, I went to see PotC 2. My first reaction? "You BASTARDS."
Really, though, I think it was very good. I think I might have even liked it better than the first. Cliffhanger like whoa, though.
Monkey, who's four now, had been wanting to see it since I first started getting excited about it. I warned her it was scary and long, but she didn't care and wanted to go anyway.
She was such
a little stinker, I swear. She was running off, hanging from things, and asking many, many questions.
Oh, and developing a crush on Orlando Bloom. Kids.
I thought he was pretty annoying. The whipping was nice, though.
Monkey keeps calling Jack Sparrow my husband, which, though incredibly geeky and weird, is kind of pleasing. She kept getting upset on my behalf whenever anything would happen to him. I think she was about ready to crawl into the screen and bitch slap Elizabeth at one point.
A few moments later I kinda wanted to too.
Oh, and in the mail today I got some little 4x6 prints from dA of pictures I had done. I only ordered them a few days ago, the shipping was very fast. The quality is great, too. They are so pretty, which sounds so completely egotistical, but OMG the colors, the colors!
So bright. So pretty.
The three I think that turned out the best are these:
And I'm not just saying that because the guys are pretty.
The colors on
were so pretty and vibrant. I
it. :shop195257: seemed kind of faded, but then again it does on screen, too.
I had this moment where I was looking through them and couldn't believe they were something I had made. They look that good.
I've got a few commissions to finish first, but I've got a couple of ideas for pictures I'd like to do sometime soon. It seems like it's been a while since I've had time to vector for fun and I kinda miss it.
Hopefully after today this early midlife crisis I've been going through will be over. It was so bad I was annoying myself. Poor Annie who had to listen to me ramble.
Oh, and you
