I’ve been gettin all creative with Photoshop. I downloaded a s**t load of brushes and was messing around – the above is the result! The theme is poker. I had a bad game last night – Lost £6. It was going well until SHE DEVIL Victoria (JP’s bitch) placed a ridiculously high bet for JP. The position I was in rendered me screwed! – Bugger!
I’m an idiot! I’ve realised I’ve totally fudged things up over the last month. My great New Years Resolve has been almost totally flushed away – Gotta get it back, gotta get it back. Gotta get my grooooove back.
So it’s been a s**tty week! Work has been slow and I’m finding it hard to get more work in. I’ve had a rotten nasty a**e cold. The whole Princess thing has not been that much fun either. So I can either sit around and moan or just get on with things. The latter seems to be the better option. All things can be resolved with time. I also expect that the cold will go in a day or so.
The above image is my first illustrator effort – yay! ok so simple function and I still dunno how the hell the thing works but it’s a start.
I am fudged off. Oh the thoughts going through my head. I just cant understand how some people can be so ridiculously stupid with their attitudes and actions. Stupid stupid stupid! Most people are prone to the odd stupid act every now and then but people who are genuinely intelligent! – How does that happen?

No I’m not sing the praises of my sexual prowess! – No I’ve been working all night and I is tired innit! – The concept of second wind is quite amazing – you get to about 4 in the morning and its really difficult to work then BAM!! in comes the second wind – I’ll be needing my third dose in about 5 mins though.
Am listening to Jo Whiley on Radio1 and the common event from last night was splitting up. A shed load of people split up their relationships last night. It’s such a shame to hear when people break up under any circumstances as its never nice. There must be alot of depressed people out there. To those people I say – don’t worry – It’ll get better soon. To those who were doing the nasty on their partners – U need your genitalia kicked in severely!
went round to see my Bro. He’s off to Japan today for 5 days with Thunder. We did our usual tech stuff and work chat then we went and had a curry. I had……..a………Korma!!!! woo yay! So we chatted about this and that and then we went back to the flat and watched “Face Off”. I hadn’t watched this movie in a long time and I used to love it. Now its different. I’d forgotten how clichéd it really is. It’s really ridiculously terrible in places. It pains me because Cage and Travolta are two of my favourite actors and this was a huge disappointment. Oh well. “I’M CASTOR TROY!!!” Ever since seeing that movie whenever I’ve had to get photos developed I always put my name down as Castor Troy and no-one has ever questioned it.
So it’s Valentines Day! I promised my self I’d try not to be too cynical about this so I’m not. I hope all of you have a wonderful day and all of those ladies of you out there who are single and not related to me – Be my Valentine!!! xxx
EDIT – I’m not actually lookin for a valentine
Gotta try and get lots more work done and get some work in. That would help!
Last night we all pilled out to West Ealing to celebrate Lucy’s (JP’s sister) 21st birthday. Woke up this morning with a stinking hangover and I feel like crap! But it was an excellent night
we had our wee session of watching the first two episodes of the new series of 24 and Jack is back with a vengeance!! Later I watched Die Hard 2 and it poses the question who’d win in a fight – Jack Bauer or John McClane???
I think we need another party! Well I need to party! Getting back to that constantly stressed state and I’m not happy. So looking like gonna have to have the first Party Party 127 event of 2006 soon. Who wants to come?
So, where the other week I was saying i have to start actually going to bed at a respectable hour and getting up at a decent hour….well it has not quite worked out that way. I must try harder.
Sent out the Viral mail yesterday so am hoping that it will drum up some business. Fingers crossed!!
So i really need to get on the bike more. Last weekend I went for a ride down the canals and got very very VERY bored! You see the problem is there is bugger all places to ride in London. Now if things go right I may find myself owning my first car in the next month or so. This will open up alot more places to me. Throw the rig in the back and off I go – also have the advantage of being able to put tasty treats in the car for when I return. This has sprung the thought of my B17. I still own her but I had a cheeky look at the Marin website and spotted the above Marin Quake CL7. – mmmmmm it makes me drooool!
Right. So the weekend started with the boys of the house going to the rose and crown pub where we played monopoly. Steve got pissed first and then halfway through forfeited his properties and money to Bob who during the first half of the game had spent most of his time in jail. A short time after this I got bored and just to spite Bob who was winning by a long shot, I have JP all my money and property thus letting JP win in the end much to the dismay of Bob.
At this stage we were all very drunk and we went back to the house where much dancing followed. This included JP going outside to throw up. This then prompted bob to use our plastic cable washing line which promptly put him on the floor. After some faffing with the washing line our feeble attempts at break dancing were proving to be a hit with Fergus. JP took it a step to far by literally climbing up the walls and then decided to use the coffee table as a landing mat thus shagging his are and shoulder. It did tone itself down abit after this as we all slowly signed off for the night but I do remember waking up about 3 in the morning to hear Steve singing away.
Sat was spent working on a website for a cleint then Tom and I went off to see Thunder at the Hammersmith Apollo. Perks were included which included full backstage access and sitting having a beer with the band. Now this would have reached uber cool status if I was a huge fan of the band but I’m not so its was just kinda cool. They put on a great show but we were both ready for home by the time the gig ended.
When I got home I worked some more on the website then watched Batman Begins then did more work on the site and pretty much finished it off. which got me into bed by about 5am.
It was 2:30pm before i surfaced out of my bed. Today was spent chillin out. i fell asleep again for a few hours and then got up and made some food and now I am here. A nice weekend comes to a close.
You see this is the best thing about being freelance. – I don’t have to get up early in the morning – muahahahahahahahaha!!!!!
hmmm – busy! Off the success of the site I am working on for Gary Love I am now starting a second site for Colette Brown. Also I’ve been trying to figure out how to create a viral email so I can send that off to agencies in the hope of drumming up new work.
If it works I hope to have a tidal wave of showreel and website work – fingers crossed!
