For anybody that stumbles upon this page and happens to read this, they may notice that I haven't posted to this journal for over a year.
Because I have my own blog and constantly update that.

So, after being away for... ooh about 16 months, I've decided to breathe new life into my deviantART page. I kinda stopped submitting as soon as my subscription ran out. I'm hoping to pay for another subscription in March. It's not that I can't afford it, it's just that as I've not been submitting I thought there was no point.

Most of my creative juices have been focused toward my band in the last year. Not only have I been writing music, recording and gigging, I've also been a bit of a Steven Spielberg and shooting videos for the band.

But now, I feel that I'm ready to start submitting to devART again.

Every so often, all of us find ourselves having to deal with a difficult
person. Tact and diplomacy comes hard but it can be learned. Having a
sense of humour helps. Here's a few phrases you might find useful...

1. Thank you. We're all refreshed and challenged by your unique point of view.

2. The fact that no one understands you doesn't mean you're an artist.

3. I don't know what your problem is, but I bet it's hard to pronounce.

4. Any connection between your reality and mine is purely coincidental.

5. I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.

6. I'm already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

7. I will always cherish the initial misconceptions I had about you.

8. It's a thankless job, but I've got a lot of Karma to burn off.

9. Yes, I am an agent of Satan, but my duties are largely ceremonial.

10. No, my powers can only be used for good.

11. How about never? Is never good for you?

12. I'm really easy to get along with once you people learn to worship me.

13. You are beginning to sound reasonable... time to up my medication.

14. I'll try being nicer if you'll try being smarter.

15. I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

16. I don't work here. I'm a consultant.

17. At least I have a positive attitude about my destructive habits.

18. I see you've set aside this special time to humiliate yourself in public.

19. Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject.

  • Listening to: Green Day
A husband walks into Victoria's Secret to purchase some sheer
lingerie for his wife. He is shown several possibilities that range
from $250 to $500 in price, the more sheer, the higher the price.
He opts for the most sheer item, pays the $500 and takes the lingerie home.

He presents it to his wife and asks her to go upstairs, put it on and
model it for him.

Upstairs, the wife thinks, "I have an idea. It's so sheer that it
might as well be nothing. I won't put it on, but I'll do the modeling
naked, return it tomorrow and keep the $500 refund for myself."

So she appears naked on the balcony and strikes a pose.

Her husband says, "Good Lord! You'd think that for $500, they'd at
least iron it!"

He never heard the shot.

The funeral's on Friday.
