You see, I did something today. Something that I've been meaning to do for a long time. Something I've been putting off.
I bought a monitor calibrator. Yep - that's right - I'm finally able to see my works, along with everyone else's the way it's meant to be seen.
And I'm not happy about it.
Thaaaaat's right - my work looks like crap
! It's faded out and icky looking.
Hence: the spamming of your accounts. I do apologize - for I will be re-working several of my photos and re-posting them and because they will be looking oh, so fabulous, I'm showing them to you all over again! Aren't you just bubbling over with excitement?!!
I know I am! I'm SOOOOO excited to go through my over 400 deviations, take them all back to the drawing board and reprocess them. Oh yeah - I'm about as happy about it as a lumberjack with a forest to cut down with a broken axe. Yeah, I'm as happy about it as a dieter eating a giant pile of celery. I'm as happy as a kid with a pooper scooper in the spring......... you get the idea......... I'm NOT happy about all the work I've done that is in the crapper and now has to be re-done!!
argh! why, oh why, didn't I do this sooner? Why did I procrastinate for so long? Why am I so damn stupid??!!
I'm not sure if it's because I was dropped on my head as a child (several times) or if it's because my children have sucked my brains out, or if it's just that I'm suffering from a case of sock folding overload. (did you know that there are twice as many *&$@*% socks to fold in the winter than there are in the summer? and not only that - you have to actually FIND them and match them up first!!) Maybe that's it...... once I'm done matching up a whole load of socks and looking for the missing pieces I'm virtually brain dead. They should have a challenge like that on Survivor. All the old moms would kick young people ass..........
Anyways, um.. sorry about that - but back to the spam - I hope that my spam that I am giving out to you isn't as awful as the disgusting canned variety. If it is, let me know and I'll be sure to fry you up a pan of fritters to go with it. yuuuuuummmmy!!
