kjpepper: (paint the town red)
Jaysu pete, it's amazing how much of a pain in the butt it is to cut cardboard to exact measurements without a) an x-acto knife or b) a paper cutter. I'm happy it was just thin cardboard (remember those new sneakers? the box has been sacrificed to a very noble cause) but still, ai-ya. Next time I do this there will be a paper slicer involved, fuck this noise. The good news, after spending an evening gleefully littering my bed with cardboard fragments, I have the bases for the book cover. Tomorrow my prize for getting productive things done is a trip to aforementioned fabric store for actual cover material.

For something I'm just kind of making up as I go along, the book project is going rather fantastic. Here's hoping I haven't jinxed it by saying that and the cover doesn't come out a total mess. But if it works out, I'll definitely be making a few more of them. Possibly with beaded covers if I can swing it. We'll see. We all know I'm rather good at making grandiose project plans and then never doing anything with them... :P

Alas, my pretty pretty fingernails have sort of been sacrificed to the call of crafting. I'm gonna have to paint them again sometime this week.

I downloaded a few plugins for pidgin that are so far pleasing me greatly. One allows you to add facebook chat to it, so I now have that up in pidgin too, which is cool, there are some folk I like to talk to that only chat through there and means I don't have to keep that tab open. The other one replicates that google talk effect that allows your current music to display as your status. I didn't realize it was working until [livejournal.com profile] grinninfoole started commenting on how I was fast forwarding through a few tracks, and I was all "como se wtf???" But I'm very pleased it does actually work. :)

Busy week ahead... I hope my head stays in the relatively calm space it's been in for the past couple days so I can get shit done. And after that, I get to go... well, home.

Book is done. It's not absolutely perfect, but for a first try it looks pretty damn gorgeous. I've got plenty of leftover material, so I think I'll make a couple of journals later and take pictures. Not for a while though. Also I need to find something else to do this with other than rubber cement. I spent most of today rather high, and now I've got a fierce headache.

Uneventful day otherwise...

Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
