    ^In me, it triggers an hour of random posts on the BBS.


    Very nice sketches. I'm very jealous, as I am artistically disabled; I have trouble making stick-figures.

    ooooooooh, another addict! Do you happen to know a free version that runs on Vista?

    (And I think that nephew of yours will break quite a few hearts in 16 years. Particularly if he keeps that smile :) )

    Awesome sunrise, Praetor! Ours have been far less impressive here, the last months. It's been foggy here since the end of October.

    If I channeled my late night boredom into things other than Star Wars Angry Birds, YouTube and the Trek BBS my art portfolio would probably double in size in just a short space of time. I draw fast and I used to draw in quantity.

    My wife and I went out to dinner last night, then met up with some friends at a dance club. Now I haven't been to a dance club in over 15 years, so it was a lot of fun. The boys sat around and talked over the really loud music and the girls danced, fun was had by all.

    At dinner, I had Chicken n' Waffles for the very first time. It was fantastic, everyone says how great it is but until you have it, you have no idea.

    The dance club we went to is Benjamin Franklin, Founding Fathers themed. Sound very odd but it was cool. They had all kinds of stuff from the revolutionary war inside. Here are some pics from the outside.

    We were out past midnight, something I haven't done in a long time also. Of course the kids were up at 6:30am. Glad I didn't drink all that much, the wife on the other hand...well I took the kids downstairs and let her sleep for a few more hours.

    Love the drawings, tsq! I always had such a hard time drawing human features ... but your work ... it really captures not just the features, but expressions and emotions.

    Very cool!

    And speaking of cool:
    What's it like to be a secret agent? I've always wanted to know. Please, do tell ... I can keep it ... secret ... :shifty:

    Ah. Very good. Undercover and disguised as a pirate, pretending to be a family man who dresses as a pirate.

    You ... you're good, you!

    The quiet family guys always turn out to be the swashbuckling, dangerous sea pirates on the side. It's just basic science, y'know.

    TheSeeker, you should hand that pic in at a competition or exhibition. It's a definite winner! It'd be ideal for a coffee-table book or a calendar.

    I've only been to New York (State or City) during the warm months of the year, but wintertime Big Apple looks gorgeous. Not sure about all the cold air, though.

    Okay, seriously. What the fuck happened to my computer:
    [​IMG]

    This old laptop has been sitting closed on a shelf for three months. I've taken it out and used it a handful of times over the past year, thought I would do so tonight, opened it up, and found that. Seriously, HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN???
