Yo! Welcome to the Village Hidden in the Pokeball! A place for Ninjas and Pokemon to hang out, share news, whatever...

It's been a while

Gotta love Linux. I did a system update not too long ago, then last night I decided to work on a picture and wadda ya know? It had installed the newest release of GIMP! I knew 2.8 was out, but I hadn't gotten around to installing it yet. ^_^

Maybe exploring the new features will help me shed my artblock! Playing Pokemon seems to be helping

I haven't been on the O except to check comic updates. My inbox is full of birthday alerts and I owe requests to challenge winners too!

Life! Y U so demanding?!?!

As for here having housemates has it's ups and downs.
The water is out because the well pump died. It is a breezy -40 outside, like it has been for the last week! I'm worried if I get the water running again, if I can't keep the house warm enough the pipes will freeze and burst. I did buy and have one of the guys install Pex tubing, that stuff has a bit of expanding room if it freezes, but I never got around to putting in the heat tape and insulation. So yeah, sorry about the ranting. I've been kinda mentally exhausted, so even when I have time I don't feel like doing much.

I think at some point since last winter I traded anime, video games and art for watching tv :S

I'ts cold out there...

...And I go outside without a coat!
No sweaters for me! Just my tee shirt, jeans and work boots. Throw on my gloves and hat and bring in an arm load of snowy logs for the furnace! All morning I was shoveling snow at work, now only my toes are still cold. At work (about 15 miles form my home) the temperature was hovering around zero, here it is -18!
Today I actually took a picture of it!

*EDIT* Ok it's about 2 1/2 hours later and now it says -22 but it feels waaaay colder than this afternoon when I posted this. Either 4 degrees really makes a difference or my thermometer is broken...
