So, hey there Internet. How's it going? You know how two months ago I said that I'd take pictures of some pots that I made and post them for you?

Well, I lied. I lied HARD.

Not only have I not posted pictures of them, I haven't even photographed them yet. Do you know where they are? They're on the shelf above my camera, not ten inches away from it. Have I used my camera since then? Absolutely. I've taken pictures of my cat, of a hideous cake I made, and of a puffy mold growth the size of a tennis ball.

Do you know what else I've done? I bought a pretty decent airbrush. It's a Paasche VL double action. I have a compressor for it. I have paint. Can you guess how much I've used it? That's right, I haven't.  $330 worth of equipment, and it's unused. It's a good thing I only spent about $160. That way it's only a moderately expensive waste.

I hereby resolve to finish the things that I have started. I'll be back in a month and a half to tell you about my failure to do so, and all the other projects that I've started and abandoned in the mean time. (Notice how I didn't do any of the "future works" that I mentioned in January? I sense a pattern.)

Also, I'm putting up a picture of a ceramic coffin I made in mid 2006. I don't have the good pictures of it, so it's pictured next to a new coffin that I was making. The picture was taken around March, I think, maybe earlier. The date from the camera is wrong.

SO! It's now been about four months since I've been around here, but rest assured that it's not just dA that I'm neglecting.  I've pretty much slipped quietly away from all of the online communities to which I belong.  I'm hardly ever on KoL anymore, the message boards that I used to frequent are un-frequented, and I've even found myself neglecting the comics that I used to read. Seriously, if you could see my bookmarks toolbar, you would understand that this is a big deal.

I'm not even doing anything, either.  I'm not in a relationship, I haven't been at college, and I'm working eight hours shy of full time.  I blame apathy brought about by my towering mediocrity.  I should have a couple of pots out of a firing and pictures posted within a week, though, so maybe that'll spur me back into activity.

Also, why am I writing this? Five people tops are going to see it, and one of them will have clicked the wrong link.

Well, I've had this account for over a year, and decided that I finally ought to flesh it out.  At about 4:00 am local time, I opted to seriously start learning GIMP, found a tutorial, and made a background.  I didn't intend to post it, so it's only 1024*768 (my monitor's highest resolution, unfortunately), but why not?  Future works will likely be larger.
