I'm Potterific!

I'm such a huge nerd. I made this with one of those Candy Doll generators, I've attatched the link.
Yeees, it's me as a Hogwarts student, RAVENCLAW ALL THE WAY! And my "familiar" witch pet is my lovely doggy Dusty who sadly passed away in May but I can still happily remember the sound her jingling collar tags made. And the guy beside me? Muahaha, no, it's not Harry, it's ....!

... as I said. I'm a HUGE nerd. Na ha HA!

AUGH I'm falling apart!

My neck hurts like a fiend, I suppose it doesn't help that I crack it all the time, but I can't stop myself! I'm getting worried! And WHY OH WHY does my computer hate me so? All I've ever done is given it love and long hours of both verbal and downloading abuse!

Also, I realise I REALLY need to practice cleaning up elipses and drawing realistic fabric...... *sigh*

YES I figured how to get titles working!

Now can anyone tell me WHY my right hand collomn of links and such is located at the bottom of the blog and not the top? WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH MY POSSESSED COMPUTER!?!?!??!?!

woah! Where'd my blogger sidebar go???

UGH! So I bugged the fine help-line people at Bell Sympatico once again, and they gave me the internet version of "let's see here... OH MY GOD!" and I'm even more frusterated over my BLOODY STUPID INTERNET! *pant pant* I can't check hotmail, msn, gmail, my bank account, student loans... basically anything with a secure setting. The last help-line guy left off telling me to go to microsoft and update EVERYTHING but when I went to do that the net wouldn't let me open the page properly....


Anyhoo, the drawing above is a sketch I did to give Steven a reason to smile during this work heavy week of his, maybe if I stare at it long enough my net woes will go away too.

Trying to save space on my computer, I backed up everything with the intent of deleting files that weren't too critical, but when I went through the sheridan photos I couldn't delete ANY of them! (they're all backed up on cd but i couldn't take them off my computer). So many memories, I laughed so many times! Ahh, how I miss the good all days. *happy sigh*

OOH! And another thing, *puts on hick voice* mah boy Gerry, wen' 'n got 'imself a bran' new blog. Take a look-see o'er at

This pic's part of a larger illustration I'm working on for a certain special little sister, so MOM AND STEVEN if you're reading this don't show Heather, it's a surprise! Seriously though, the Teen Titans cartoon is soooooo cute.
The weekend's been pretty good, played this awesome fun game called "Cranium" over at Gerry's which is like charades/pictionary/sculpty fun/smart stuff/word-fun, and HILARITY did ensue!
It snowed over the weekend which was nice but it's been raining all evening and the roads and sidewalks are all slick and creepy with ice. We have to walk so carefully, even in my giant boots I almost slipped twice.

Alrighty! That's about it! Cheerio all! Ooh, and my listening reccomendation for the week is Dane Cook: Retaliation, the guy is soooo durn funny!

Hmm, me thinks Blogger doesn't post large files, so if you can't view the Simply Potterific comic (because i tried resizing it but that didn't work either) check it out in the fan comic section of closet-space , or at my deviant art account

UGH! My internet is SO screwed up. I downloaded an antivirus Mike C. from work told me to find and it scouted out not one but TWO worms. Eww. But I'm still unable to access email! I'm cut off from the world outside Ottawa! AUGH!

Anyhoo, here's a newbie I sketched, inked and coloured tonight. I've been wanting to do a Poisin Ivy drawing for such a long time after reading "the longest halloween" (i think that's what it's called). I just find her to be such a fascinating character, almsot Faerie like in her love of plants but absolute distain for humans. Batman's my favourite superhero. Don't worry, he'll save himself soon enough...

Things that made me smile today: I had a nice long phone call wil Lucia after work. Almost down to only the wick on a beautiful vanilla scented candle that I've lit every night for the past few weeks. Marcel's adorable dog Fredrick almost licked the skin right off my hand, it made me remember my sweet Dusty who passed away last May.
I think Tony may have started a dinner-trend because now I have this overwhelming urge to capture my culinary attempts on film... or digital hoo-haw... whatever a digital camera takes. Pixels! That's it.

First up is the VERY FIRST all-on-my-own dinner I made a couple months back, chicken spaghetti, you may laugh at the simpleness but I was so excited to cut the meat (well, Andrea helped) and boil the noodles all on my own (yes, I've lived a sheltered existance.)

This here is a salmon fillet I made two days ago. Very tasty, I don't even remember what spices are on it (I just added whatever Andrea gave me) and the carrots on top are from her mother's recipe. VERY tasty, though I kind of overcooked it.

It's been 6 months but I'm only now truley realising I love our appartment. I'm slowly adding touches to my room that make me happy which include the pink stars Gerry helped me put up, and the funky quilt I bought at Ikea with Lucia.

Last of all, yes I have been drawing, just not much more than doodles. But here's another one of my Simply Potterific comics I make to amuse myself and my brother, which are actually pretty popular down at deviant art! Which is a good ol' confidence boost!

I've been listening to a lot of Iron and Wine lately. I find them so calming. Not that I'm the most stressed out person in the world, but we all have our bad days.

Gerry's roomate bought a robot. Seems all it does is pick up things and whistle suggestively at people. Silly little robo-sapien.

This is the logo I designed for "Silly Kingdom" a hilarious independant radio-play series currently in production. Based in a distant time and land, the core characters are a machiavellian prince, his sweet and innocent sister, a crotchety wizard with a chip on his shoulders against modernised magic tricks, and the court jester who's about the only person in the castle with a brain. Fantastically written (and I'm not just saying this because the writter's my brother) and hosting some very talened actors from the Voice Acting Alliance Forum, I HIGHLY recommend checking it out if you're in the mood for a chuckle. Check it out either here at:
Or through our closet-space website.
