Anybody out there think that maybe I'm obsessing about this just a *teensy* bit too much?

Ok, left to right: I ragged the dark rust over yesterdays' gawdawful orange. I liked it, but not enough to do the whole wall that way. Next up is the deep rust color, which goes by the name of "Autumn Sunset". I'm tempted to use it just so I can point out the name to anybody who asks. Two points for anybody who catches the reference to this movie, hehehehe. Next is another tan which is too pink. Why can't I find a nice tan??? Another strip of Rust, so that I can compare it to my second favorite, "Copper Brown". I like it, but it might be too brown. I also tried one side of the 'place with a dark forest green. It's very pretty, but....I don't think I could live very long with three walls worth of dark green. I'm going to look at it a few more days and think about it lol. Yes, I am being my usual decisive self here. Besides, I have a ceiling to do first anyway, if a certain almost-ex brings back my ladder and my PowerPainter, dammit.I bet this wall looks completely goofy from outside the window on the sidewalk. Even if it does, the curtains are staying open. Maybe somebody out there will take pity on me and pick out some colors. Another shot of copper, yucky tan, and dark rust without the flash flare.

Comments? Bright ideas? Bueller? Bueller?P.S. It's *fun* to paint when the Dave Matthews Band is blasting. Good thing I don't have to try to stay in the lines!

More like Blaze Orange and Pinkish-Gray, if you ask me.....

I hate 'em BOTH. Back to the paint chips. I wanted deep rust and a tan. Instead I get something that looks like a fake-tan-from-a-bottle and a color that looks like my locker at work. Yuck. This is way harder than it looks. And I'm still lovin' it.

...just in time for class beginning tomorrow morning!! (I'm itching to get back at it.) Listen to me, lol..... "office". 8-| How highfalutin' do I sound? How about "original 1920's parlor formerly used as a heavily curtained bedroom now returned to its original sunlit glory and quickly filling with computer and various other electronic equipment removed from the living room." Okay. "Office".

Next is trying to move in an approximately three ton file cabinet and trying to figure out what to do with those dumb little speakers all over the desktop. At least the big one can hide behind the desk.

Brooke sent these pictures of a memorial service she went to for some of our soldiers who were recently killed in a helicopter crash. Sort of puts things into perspective for me each day when I go to work to do my job. I know everything I do at work each day is to support these guys and girls who put their lives in danger every day. I'm thankful for men and women like these who gave everything. Pray for their Husbands, Wives, Children, brothers, sisters & parents.
Amen. { gallery [memorial] }

So let's just put on some appropriate music, 'cause I don't think there's going to be any professorial "attagirl" on this one!

I *still* think this is the all-time greatest album cover ever. Composition, subject, energy...this one has it all. The music wasn't too bad, either. :-D (That's for you punk fans in the family.)

Okay, I think I'm done farting around with the templates again. Minor upgrades week!! Made some revisions to the "insides" of this site--purely out of my "can't leave well enough alone" inclinations. Things are up and running again, thankfully, with a cleaner, leaner look--but I still have room for the larger photos that I've always preferred. :-D Still have some playing with the wiki to do. Clean out your minds, this is the explanation of a wiki. And yes, I *am* avoiding "The Clash of Civilizations", as a matter of fact. How did you guess?
