sore hands hurting annoyingly

That Artpad thingie's dead neat, isn't it? Weather's going to be crap for the barbecue, looks like. Never mind, I have a cherry tree to plant and it will be planted. Washing machine, tick. House becomes home. First bird visitor (a female blackbird) enjoying my hospitality this morning -- too much rain for them to care about the new and exceptionally tacky goth birdbath, though (accidental impulse purchase from Past Times). We broke it taking it home (inevitably, it's only fibre glass and resin) and discovered a curious thing -- the inside bottom was resin cast in the shape of broken crockery being used to weigh it down -- something you'd never see unless you broke it. Strange secret details. I missed the bird with the new-house camera, so photographed the leaning tower of boxes instead. Anyone need boxes? I have masses. Old-house camera is nearly done. Just a bit more cleaning -- and then the emptying of the fridge.

Re: Artpad
hang on - I was about to point at yiskah's an an example of actually using the animation and she refers back to you... wierd lj circularity.

I do like the idea of a weekly strip that changes as you look at it...

Jesus, you.
First, congrats again on the move.
Second, I love seeing artists at work, even if they're not really there. Nice one, very nice.

tacky goth birdbath?
Just how do you accidentally purchase something like this? Did it creep up to you in the shop, start yowling pityfully and snuggle down into you bag whilst purring?

Re: tacky goth birdbath?
Yes, that's pretty much how it happened. Except with more bubble wrap.

The weather was excellent! I had more fun in the rain under the Parasol of Torment than I usually have, er, almost anywhere :)

Does Paul have an LJ id?

Reader only? How feeble! In that case, I scorn him.
