I don’t feel so good…

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

It’s Sunday and I haven’t posted in days.  I didn’t even post anything about new drawings, but that’s more because I didn’t work on them at all this past week.  I’ll just carry on through next week and go from there.

The past couple of days I haven’t been feeling good.  My body aches, I have stomach cramps, my back and sides hurt and I’m even a little gassy (although that’s not terribly unusual).   I had to work yesterday and I was physically and mentally exhausted afterwards.  I felt all floaty after we got back home.  Kind of like being light-headed but all over.

So I’ve been resting and making faces and moaning now and then, but not posting or drawing.  Monday is a public holiday so hopefully I’ll feel better and I can have some semblance of a decent weekend.

Ninja attack

Wow… I never once saw ninjas rob a store.  Ever.

Female ‘Ninjas’ Rob Richland Gas Station

Obviously all the cool new crime is happening in Pennsylvania… which I suppose should be a shock to no one.

Day off

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

Wednesday has been a public holiday so I’ve had the day off work.  Unfortunately, I forgot my sketchpad at work on Tuesday.  And I didn’t get a chance to work on anything before then.  So… it doesn’t look too promising for me to get any drawings done this week since I’m going to be busy at work tomorrow.  It sucks, but oh well.  It was bound to happen eventually.

Mid-Autumn Festival is a nice time of year here.  It’s a beautiful full moon out there tonight shining on the water of the harbor.  I’d take a picture but we really need a tripod to get it right.

How much for a home?

Monday, September 24th, 2007

I’m just curious: How much do you spend each month on your rent or mortgage?

Prices for housing in Hong Kong are some of the highest in the world, or so it would seem.  Our flat costs $25,000 HK dollars ($3,205 US dollars) per month.  And it’s not that great of a place.  In the same area as us you see flats ranging in rent from $20,000 – 130,000 HK dollars per month (that’s $2,565 – 16,667 US dollars per month… that is not a typo).  My house in St. Louis, MO had a mortgage of around $700 USD per month so the sticker shock when looking here in Hong Kong was a bit extreme.

So like I said… I’m curious.  What do you pay for the place you live in?  You don’t have to say where that is if you don’t want.  Just thought it would be interesting to get some perspective on this.

Sunday morning

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

It’s Sunday morning. My better half is supposed to do a photo shoot for some kids outside but there’s a typhoon in the area so it’s raining a little. That kinds sucks.

I woke up with a bad headache in the middle of the night and I generally slept like crap. I’ve slept like crap for the past week. It may be time to break down and buy a new mattress.

Some anonymous someone dropped off free passes to go see the movie Rogue Assassin on my desk this week. Maybe we’ll go see that this afternoon. In the States, the movie is called War. Not sure why the name was changed here.
