FANIME!!! It was awesome. There were so many gorgeous costumes and so many terrible costumes. I hugged someone dressed as Finn and someone dressed as PB. I didn't end up going in costume, because the person I was going to go with had said she couldn't do it, but then two days before it turned out she could. It was SO awesome. We spent most of the time looking around at the gorgeous arts, and I even saw . Next year we will make the costumes in time, and we will be the most amazing Fiona and Cake ever.

I only have about a week of school left. I've really not been focusing on art lately, and normally a lack of school would give me more time to practice and draw and paint, but I'm going to be pretty busy this summer, so no promises. I still want to work more on that 100 picture challenge thing… , and I'll probably be doing some art class. I'd love to work on my drawing, especially drawing people. Especially painting people.

I've been reading tons of Discworld books, and they are just wonderful. Anyone who has never picked up a book by Terry Pratchett should go to the nearest library right now and ask if they have any discworld books. They're silly and fantastic and chalk full of wordplay. The characters are wonderful and hilarious and not at all the perfect heroes or even the perfect villains. You have Vetinari, the Patrician of Ankh Morpork, who is a dictator who has organized the crime in the city so that you have to leave receipts when you steal anything, and there are the trolls, which are made of rock and offer a great nonhuman perspective. Then of course the Luggage, who can break diamond and will stare at you with contempt if you don't believe that. Yes, it's keyhole will be very contemptuous. Anyway, you get the point. They're wonderful books and well worth a read. You don't need to read them in order at all, although it's good to start with The Color of Magic, because it has lots of travel and sort of maps out the Disc for new readers.

Finally, to conclude, here are some awesome links.

some gorgeous stuff:……

a site to revel in the sound of pouring rain, even if it's sunny out:

the coolest backpack ever:…

and if you like Discworld, this is worth a glance:…
  • Listening to: my clock tic ticking
  • Reading: Thud! by Terry Prachett
  • Watching: Doc Martin
  • Playing: Ocarina of Time
  • Drinking: some extremely weak vanilla flavored tea
