That would be very difficult as my grandmother is still alive. :D :D It was a joke...and I felt weird about having my picture up there...makes me feel vulnerable...eh. :D

I have never been called exotic before...it's the textures, I'm sure! :D :laughing:

I understand...being vulnerable is uncomfortable.:paranoid:
Yes, the textures are also very nice:D

:) So that is the woman who is going to punch me? GO GRANDMA!

On a serious note ( or a half silly one as the case may be )... . very nice work, the texture and color choices are excellent. Well done.

Btw, I'm waiting to see this list that you are withholding from us... . .... . you know, the one at the end of your signature quote. :D

That you're too embarrassed to list because they make you cry?

They do. I cry from laughing! XD Especially the ones where they sing about climbing the highest mountains and swimming the deepest oceans, giving their car keys, bladdy blah. I didn't know that being a tri-athlete was required for nookie, or songwriting.

But at least I ain't no HOOTIE and his stupid Blowfish. The dolphins make him cry. He sounds in need of a good bear hug.....from a real bear. A hungry one.

Then we can call him Hootie and the Bear-scat!

Hahahahaha....I saw Hootie and the Blowfish in concert...the bassist was giving me the eye...you know, the I want to give you a disease or atleast some critters eye....gasp, a scratchy eye!!!!! No thank you.

I love love songs. Sigh. :D I own Celine's greatest hits...I will even sing them at my loudest volume possible....while driving, in the shower......does this mean we can't be friends????? :D

hahahahahahha!

Most of my favorite musicians are blues, RnB, soul, reggae, rock............the most favorite of those type being being Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Otis Redding, the list is endless. I must love "love songs" in order to love those artists. ;) I just take nothing as sacrosanct. The best things to make fun of are the things you love the most....because you know more about them than anything else. hehehe

So, no. I guess we can't. XD

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.........sexy eye from a blowfish! Funny thing is, I think the same dude gave me the eye. Apparently he must play the "double" bass. XD

I love singing loud while driving in the shower. OH, damn commas! I missed it! ;)
True, funny story(years ago).........I got a date while playing, of all things, JAZZ really loud out of my car. Who knew you didn't have to blast AC/DC to pick up on girls? Especially when you aren't trying to! hahahahaha

Actually, maybe he was looking at my friend, Brian? We were standing very close together so it's possible. :D Did you take him up on his offer?? hahahhaah...you did, didn't you??????

What you don't realize is that it had nothing to do with the music you were playing, except that it got her to turn her head. :)

I'm sad...so fleeting was our friendship...hey, singing while driving while showering IS fun...you should try it one day. :D

:D The punch has been downgraded to a cuff on the head. Isn't she a sweetheart? ... . just say yes. :D


Thank you much. :)

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Only because you demanded a yes. I meant Yes. A good head cuffing is not to be missed, and in my case, well deserved.

You are welcome. ;)

Thank you, thank you. :D I've been really wanting to learn airbrushing and so many stock providers are against simple airbrushing...so I wrapped my hair around me (that's right, that's not a scarf!!) and snapped a shot of myself. I really like the zombie-ish vibe to it too...but maybe it's just how I'm seeing it. :D That is a fantastic tutorial that I linked to....if anyone is looking for one. :)

Oh I did not know that stock providers are against airbrushing...? Really? Why on earth is so? I will check out that tutorial when I am on a good machine and not a handkerchief-size notebook (brrr...) And yes, you do have a LONG hair (envy included :) ).

If it's just airbrushing...if you are using it in a manip, then it's okay to airbrush and whatever else. I think because it's not a substantial change. It's a really good tutorial, was able to follow it easily. Ha! The hair is a pain in the arse...I get it in my mouth all the time (yuck!!!!!)...so do my cats, poor things. :)
