This one’s just gonna have to be a quickie. I’m sick of looking at a computer today.
I’m learning Flash—it’s turning out to be not nearly so difficult as I thought it would be. I explained to Cathy today it’s like drawing in photoshop on three axes instead of two—you have to think in terms of time as well of in terms of width and height. It was a bit of a shift, but not nearly the paradigm-shifting-without-a-clutch that I was expecting.I’ve got the first scene of the movie done—the intro. I don’t know how to link the buttons yet—I’ll figure that out either by my readings tonight or by tomorrow morning’s explorations. Tomorrow I’m going to work on the kittypix portion of the flash movie. Shouldn’t be difficult. I might have to try a morph from Edmund’s face to Tenzing’s. That will probably be amusing.
This is so nice—I was thinking this afternoon and realized that we’ve got guests coming next weekend and that we don’t have nearly the horrid amount of things to do that I had to do before my parents got here. I kept reassuring myself that it wasn’t going to be like that every time, but somehow I just didn’t believe it. I’ve got to weed the flower beds and get a couple of new things hung on the walls, but that’s about it (besides routine cleaning).
That was the plan—make it so that we could have guests on very short notice and not feel inconvenienced. Maybe I’m onto something after all.
We get paid on Friday. Hurrah. Finally, the pay-drought shall be over and I can continue with my regularly scheduled rampant American consumerism!
Funny to think how fast today flew, since I spent most of it learning stuff I wanted to learn. I’m easily entertained by that sort of thing.
Oh. We tried making curry again tonight. And, once again, we managed to put too much yogurt in it, giving it a bitter taste. Jeff and I both were annoyed. We got over it.
I’d elucidate on the meaning of life and things like that, but I’ve got plants that need watering. Specifically, my cranky basil.
