I really want to make cupcakes now lol
My left hand and foot are still numb :/ I am hoping that the meds kick in soon, I'm giving it another week and a bit and if there is no change, back to the doc. I guess I should be glad thats its not my right hand and that I can still draw, but its still very frustrating because even tho I am right handed, I've realized I do use my left to do a lot of things. meh, as long as the meds I have been given for my leg jerking work, I will be happier. Trying to draw when your leg jerks out of the blue, is a pain in the arse (especially when you are drawing against said leg :p)

Gorgeous Stingrays this week. Don't judge them just because killed the crocodile hunter ;) I would love to see one in person, swimming wild. But I don't snorkel, and I am crap swimmer. I could tread water for awhile, but eventually my legs are going to give out :p and then I end up shark food :p

I really need to start thinking of another theme for flickr favourites, its has just made it easier for me to find pics to share with people. I might do alphabetical countries, but not completely sure. Anyone have any ideas please let me know :)

This didn't take as long I thought it would. Amazing what you can get done when you get up at 8 in the morning :p I wanted to just suggest the bird, think it works OK. Love how the eyes turned out. On to the next one :)

On the health front, went to the neurologist yesterday. Said I probably am not having a relapse, its just the side effects of the meds coming out of my system, so back on the meds I go and hope they don't make me really drowsy. She did give me some medication that might stop my leg from jerking at random times keeping me up at night. This shouldn't make me drowsy, but if it doesn't work I have to try another one that more than likely will make me drowsy. I really don't want to take anything that will make me any more tired than I am since I will be going back to college in the fall, don't want to fall asleep in the darkroom :p
I know a lot of the meds I am on help with the MS, but you get so tired of taking so many a day. I do take them, its just seems like such a chore. And taking the Rebif injections gives me some pretty lovely coloured bruises, but the joys of having a bleeding disorder as well :/
I've said it before and I will probably say it again; With all these health issues if I was a horse, I'd be glue right now :p

And a health update: My left hand is about 90% numb, makes typing hard, keep missing keys. Its such an odd feeling. Like my hand is a dead weight, and I don't know where it is a lot since I can't feel it. My left leg has gone numb from the knee down. I can walk but it takes a bit of effort to move my leg since it to feels like a dead weight. Been stumbling a lot since I do tend to hit even small little things on the sidewalk and they throw me off balance. And telling people that the parts are numb isn't even an accurate description of the problem. Its so hard to explain to someone that hasn't had it happen to them. Its painful, don't think just because I say I'm numb I don't feel anything. Imagine your foot falling alseep, times that by 10 and you sort of have the level of numbness I have right now. And its like getting shocked every time I touch something or someone touches me.
I wasn't going to write about the MS, but really its such a part of my life that its dumb not to write anything about it. I'm not going to go on and on about it and how it effects me, but its does effect what I do with art and life in general so I feel like I do need to include it here :)

In one of the the emails I received, it talked about this site called About Me. Its a site where you can list all of the places you use online. I think its pretty handy having things in one place and half the time I forget what sites I actually use lol Heres mine :)

I have been following the virtual paintout blog for awhile now. Its really nice seeing all the artwork that people produce and looking on streets I would have never thought to look at in the first place. Until now I haven't really wanted to contribute, but this months country is New Zealand, and I know I say it a lot, but I love the place and want to go back so bad (ok, could deal without the earthquakes tho).
I find landscapes hard to draw, so I tend to avoid them. Figured it was about time I started drawing more landscapes, so might as well use scenes from a land I fell in love with. I am pretty sure that my style when drawing landscapes will be this loose, makes them easier to draw and I can focus on the colours of the land more than anything else.
Actually what I found the hardest, was picking one scene from the googlecar to draw. I honestly think that a photo or a drawing can not do the place justice.

"Q" Not that many animals start with that dreaded letter in scrabble. But here is another shiny one, the Quetzal. It is theme week this week, "garden party". hmmm can't really think of an animal that fits that theme, but hmm could say the birds look like someone who has passed out at a party and woken up to find that the other guest have drawn all over them with markers while they slept.... yeah another stretch on the theme :p

When mom was here so also brought a bunch of pictures with her since bringing clothes when I moved here was a bit more important than pics. I don't think customs would have liked me walking though naked (would save time in security tho). I love looking at the pics, brings back so many memories and it is so nice having pics of family that have passed away to remember them by.
Some people know that I was born with an extra finger on my left hand. I remember this picture hanging on the wall because you can see the extra finger. Its proof when people don't believe me even after showing them the scar on my hand. hmm wonder if the carpet colour was chosen because it hides the finger?...
I was always a pudgy smiling kid lol lots of hair too. This was taken in 1982, so I was just one here :)
