…but my iPad is. I’m borrowing hubby’s work one to write this, but it has no photos, no history, and it isn’t MINE.
MINE fell on its face and shattered, and it’s been quite the ordeal to get it fixed. My old one also has developed issues and is unusable. I hate this, but what do you do? Might have it back on Tuesday.
So, it’s been three weeks since I’ve been able to do anything bloggy. Thanks for noticing my absence – insert small sarcastic huff here – but I find the WP reader annoying and prefer to get my new blog post updates via email. Which is pointless on an iPhone as I can’t hardly see the damn thing; and typing a comment? fugeddaboutit. Man-hands: I have man-hands. Old-man-hands. Big fat fumbly callused fingers. Trust me. I’d be responding with things like, “Yesssh Iagree nd I also tink thiis harhar har”.
To ease my pain of lack of blogging, I’ve been posting random shit on FB that I’d normally put here. I don’t think my ‘real life’ friends appreciate my randomness as much as you lot, and dammit I sure miss you. I’m sorry, very sorry! that my Precious fell on her face and turned into something full of shards of glass I couldn’t allow into my bed. Oh yes, I read 2-3 books a week on the iPad, too. My constant companion, actually. *sniffle *
I can’t even put up a decent photo to show my shame.
They are stilllllll blooooming.
I’ve even bored myself by posting so many damn pics of them once a week. I am done!
Jazuz, but there are a lot of pics. I don’t think I’ll be taking the time to resize these like I did last week – too many!
Wednesday: the red/orange one reminds me a a Gremlin from the movies for some reason.
I’m missing a few pics from Thursday, as my phone is over-full and refusing to send them to the iPad. But the last two were taken late Thursday evening, when I was on the phone to Socks, and noticed that there was bright pink juice dripping down the stem as the flower faded and died. Which is better: with or without the flash?
Friday: just the one set of five at once!
Saturday: do you see what I see? Yellow ones about to bloom! An-tic-i-pa-tion…
Sunday: my first yellow iris! A bit battered as it was very windy.
Also my first mutant bloom, poor thing.
Monday: almost done, and boy howdy am I tired of uploading these! Poor iPad is below 25%, hope I make it.
Today (Tuesday, durrrrrr):
Aaaand finally, I’m done. Holy crapmonkeys, Batman, but that was a lot of work! I don’t blame y’all for just giving a cursory glance at this.
When I heard this week’s Cartoon Craziness Challenge was ‘superhero’, I didn’t have one minute of hesitation. I actually know a superhero!
Today is his 75th birthday, and he seems the same to me as he he was in his 50’s. Still has all his hair, and his all original parts, and best of all he still has his silly sense of humour. This cartoon is drawn from my favourite photo of him, taken by my hubby when Dad was over to visit us. I forget why he turned his cap backward and struck a gangsta pose – maybe some rap/hip-hop music was playing in the pub we were in? Still, you haveta love someone who is willing to be goofy a) in public b) in their 70’s c) in a foreign country surrounded by strangers.
Of course he’s super for a lot more reasons – but if I get all gooshy here, he will tease me unmercifully!
Love you dad and thank you for everything you have done for your family over the years. Wish I could give you a big hug today!
Ah, I don’t normally do these, but I felt the immediate need to draw a cat in a hat when I saw The Indecisive Eejit’s challenge.
Yah, it’s rubbish but I enjoyed the 10 minutes it took to do it – I use the Brushes app and it is ‘fingerpainting’ on an iPad. I can do much better work, I promise – my favourite being Ivy and Stewie. Please, have a look – I promise I’m not usually so… quick?
Just in case my two time zones confuzzled anyone! See previous post for links :)
Taken the other morning with the iPad – terrible pic as usual and I even lightened it up with iDarkroom HD.
Got to feel the love when kitty decides to let you bask in the glory of his arse at very, very, close proximity to your nose.
