Also, I finally figured out a good station for Krismas music on Pandora. I based it on Blue Christmas by Elvis Presely, You're a mean on Mr. Grinch, and some others. Awesome. Even pulled up my favorite song from the Elf soundtrack, "Baby, it's cold outside" with Zooey Deschanel.
Here's our decorations.
|Krismas tree with sparkly lights. There are more ornaments on it now, though.|
|New stockings! We had old ones that I knit when we first started dating. They were pretty bad. These are awesome. The tiniest one is for Nermal. Abe didn't even want to get her that! We don't have a fire place, so they just go up on the wall.|

Speaking of social media, the Instagram news sucks. I might switch to flickr. Instagram, starting Jan 16, will use any posted images whenever they like, for free, in ads, including selling them to other businesses. This is terrible for every artist who posts work there. I will, at the very least, not be posting any of my art work any more. That would just be silly. Not that the artwork is great or the pictures are good, but still not worth the risk. So glad Facebook bought Instagram. Not. I kinda hate Facebook, but it is so ubiquitous at this point.

Rijl and I eat so much sugar when we are together. I wonder if she eats that much sugar when I am not there. Instead of coffee or tea when we want to stay up late, she gets us soda and gummy candy. Sugar high.

I was in Portland for LavaCon, a conference for content designers (like myself, a technical writer). I have other comics about that, but I got to go down early and hang out with Rijl and Tiernan for a day. This corn maze was at a pumpkin patch. So we also got some cinnamon almonds and they picked out some pumpkins for Halloween
Looking at this, I think I need to draw less shine in my hair. And less curls. We'll see. I like drawing it that way because that's how I would like if my hair did look. Speaking of hair, boy do I need to get it done again - cut and dye. Why does it have to cost $120 or more for a cut and dye! Too much hair on this head of mine.

Abe's dad didn't die or anything. They just didn't see each other. Made me sad when we were talking about this stuff and he didn't know what I was talking about. I had a great childhood with lots of silly memories. Like the hidden peanuts on my birthday! They would draw faces on the peanut shells and hide them all over the house for all the kids to find. It was very fun. We'd find them for months apparently.
