Chinese new year is here. Its the year of the Ox, or cow. Lets all celebrate like we live in Hong Kong and take the next month off from work.

Well I am still alive. Seems my dysfunctional lifestyle, which involves me working as much as possible and sleeping as little as possible, caught up to me. Ater being sick and out of work for the last week, I am working again. I am not enjoying it very much though. Oh well, its not like I ever enjoy working.
Hope everyone bought their new pair of shoes. Chinese lunar new year is tomorrow and tradition has it to break in the new year with a new pair of shoes.
These will definitely get your new year off right!!

Finally bought myself a Creative Illustration by Andrew Loomis book. I almost gave up on trying to find a decent and cost efficient edition. Then I forgot about the book all together. Fortunately my boss brought it up one day recently. That peaked my interest again and now I have one. Hopefully reading through it will help out.
1947 1st edition still with the dust jacket. Woo hoo.

2008, American Dialetic Association word of the year, bailout. If I had known this, I would have used this word more. Bailout. Doesnt seem like a good word of the year. Some of the runner ups: maverick, change, and something the Association liked to call Obama-fications. Words that start with Obama and end with whatever you like. Obama-mama, Obama-nation, Obama-licious, etc... So maybe bailout wasnt such a bad choice.
Purchased a new 2009 calender yesterday. Only about a week late. Also bought a book, Comic Book Nation.
If you want to see some really interesting comic book covers from back in the day, its worth a look through. And for some reason I grabbed a Walt disney book.

If I had a normal weekend it would be getting over today. But since I am abnormal and work everyday I get no weekends. No big loss really. Was a very interesting Friday and Saturday though. Had a good time with everyone from the shop on Friday night. I did pretty much nothing else. Besides upsetting someone. But that will be resolved so its not a worry. But I suppose I should be worried. Oh well...
This was funny. "Tard cannon" thats the best.
