I've been boring lately in that I've been crunching away at LG pages most of the time...I'm trying to finish this chapter by the end of the week, and I'm about five pages away from doing so. However, I just hit a crazy of tonight, I have officially completed 300 pages of Lunargyros. @____@ AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. I never imagined getting this far...with anything, let alone this comic! I feel like I should do a celebration for the 300th page, but I dunno what!

Completely unrelated, but I was wondering...does anyone know how to generate one of those little progress meters? Something to show how much of a certain amount (money, points, whatever) is being accumulated towards a certain goal? IDK if there's any way to make that sort of thing on LJ.

Also, Italy keeps trying to kill my parents in really bizarre ways. They have been lucky in surviving thusfar. 8|

Back home!  
That's right! I arrived back home on the evening of the 30th! And it's taken me alllll day to check up on the internets 'cause I'm a dork that way. XD But now, since I like recording this kind of stuff, it is time for TALES OF MY TRAVELS.

Florence! )

Stuff I got )

And this represents...Madonna and Child! Again! )

Linner? )

Rome! )

Going home )

Random observations about Italy )

And yes, that was pretty much the trip! I shall try and post some pics/videos that my brother took whenever he sends them to me, because I has no camera.

And on top of that, it is now New Years Eve! This past year has definitely been busy and full of changes, the most of which would be graduating from college and getting shoved into the "real world." @_@ But I'm still looking forward to 2007, and hoping for many more fun and exciting new things. And I want to work real hard at making new progress in the worlds of animation and comics jobs!

I hope everyone has a great New Years! ^^

Drawing: So much to catch up on! I've some more LG pages to do, more on the doujin, those gift arts I still owe, and a few other things. Must get to work!

Writing: Wrote a tad on LW over the trip. :3

Made It!  
Just givin' a big hey from Italy! :D (Yes, I am stupid and don't know enough Italian yet.) My flight totally went smoothly. The first flight left on the dot, and I switched seats with someone so I ended up getting a front row seat with plenty of legroom. The company was good, the service was great, and I was able to sleep for most of the flight (although not that well...) My flight transfer went over without a hitch. The Swiss have everything streamlined so well! o_o Landed in Rome, where my family was there to greet me! XD There were much hugs and hellos, and we managed to catch two trains all the way to Florence. My brother showed me a crapload of pictures on his laptop of their trip to Egypt, and shared many stories of their adventures. He also had some really beautiful pictures from Ireland.

So now I am here at the Florence villa, and it's midnight, and I am totally tired and ready for bed. So, quite possibly more details will come later! Hopefully at least one day we will be able to go out to Venice. :D

Oh, and to everyone still at the Ranch: who is picking me up on the 30th? I know I arranged for someone to, but, uh, now I don't remember who. o_o;

Time to fly  
Well, I leave for Italy in just a few hours. :O I still gotta do a bit of packing, but the bulk of it's done, so I'm not exactly rushing that. Here's hoping the flights all go smoothly and there's no delays on LAX's part, as I've got a connecting flight in Zurich that I'll only have a little over an hour to get to. :P However, considering my family should be getting in to Rome about half an hour before I do, they should be there to greet me. Oy, international flights!

Tuesday night the three of us still hangin' around here went over to [ profile] sbctaka's place for a Christmas party. We had homemade shabu-shabu, yuuuum! ♥ And there was much hilarity and watching of Law and Order, because it was on and we were too tired to play a game. And I got to see her cute kitty, Kiyoshi! Except he was really afraid of everyone and hid under the bed most of the time.

Also, I've got a new job once I get back for the new year: temp-to-hire reception work for a company that builds, um, rich people's houses or such. 12 bucks an hour with increased pay if I go full-time sounds nice to me. I need to send my portfolio places once I get back so that I can get to what I actually want to do ASAP, but at least I won't be unemployed next year. :P

And muuuuch love to [ profile] voodoobob, who's been passing along the KH2 clips in .mov format, so I'm finally getting to work on that AMV I screamed about a month or two ago! XD Even if all the money I spent on those programs was kinda blehh, and even if it's not a fantastic work of art like I've seen at the AMV contests at cons, I'm getting it done and having fun! ♥

ALSO ALSO! Rebmakash is about the awesomest awesome in the world of awesome, as she sent me a Christmas present! And it was... A LION SORA PLUSHIE OOOOMG


He is cute and cuddly and huggable and squeeeeeeeee! I am taking him with me to Italy because I lurbles him muchly and he'll protect me from Heartless Airports and probably bad weather, too! ♥

Aaanyways, wish me luck! I shall try and give a I AM IN EUROPE OKAY post if I have internets, although I probably won't be on IM the entire time there. I hope everyone has a good Christmas!
