Hey, Cowprobe! :wave: Needed a reminder YOU existed!

Forgot this shoutbox device even existed.

Been about a year and a half since anyone posted anything here... folks, is anyone looking at the Shoutbox, or has Twitter made it redundant?

Got the job almost three months ago... WHOA, this thing needs an update!

The job search continues. Keep praying for me, peoples.

If anyone actually reads the Shoutbox, I haven't fallen off the edge of the earth. Trying to get myself to sit and post to the Journal. :work:

Sitting pretty in Hong Kong's YWCA Anne Black House, in case anyone's reading this thing. Wi-fi was a bear to start.

Hey, guys, lately I've been on a creative kick, and it was jump-started by something by an inadvertent search for the "Ying Tong Song" here in dA.  I uncovered a nifty little challenge which originated with maeoneechan and later got messed with and adapted by  DCLeadboot in his para-mutation here:

The deal:

:bulletred: Pick a character, pairing or fandom. (Or whatever OCs you've got in your own stable... I used :icondavidcmatthews:'s Dyna guys, and threw in Tetsuko with my own Les Safer.)
:bulletyellow: Put Media Player on Shuffle Mode - (Or iTunes, or WMP, or WinAmp, or Zune, or your CD player, or try lucky dip into your box of vinyl records, cassettes, 8-tracks, Edison wax cylinders, or what have you)
:bulletgreen: One of the rules was that you had to stop drawing when the music stopped - Well, DCLeadboot couldn't do it, so he gave himself a five minute limit instead.  And I can't draw online, so I stuck with 100 words in a written short scene.
:bulletblue: Also, it said pick 10 pieces - I stuck with that rule, but DCLeadboot expanded his to 20:  it was too fun to stop.  I went back for a second round, myself.

Important:  whatever pops up in your music player is what you have to work with!  No fair skipping!

No tagging from me:  this is strictly volunteer.  You want to a tag, just reach into the bucket and take one.

If you want to see what I came up with as a writer, here are links to my tries:
  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: "Pompeii" -- E.S. Posthumous
  • Reading: My latest scraps entries
  • Watching: Phoenix Wright witness breakdowns
  • Eating: E.L. Fudge double stuffed cookies
  • Drinking: Coffee with non-dairy creamer

Which is the best Weird Al video for Mandatory Fun?

Thanks a lot for the watch! :highfive: Spent quite a while in China, huh? You must have some interesting stories to tell.

Thanks for the watch!

I have to check- my uncle is a Maryknoll Missionary, and he's been working in China, out of Hong Kong, for the last few decades... how deep into China were you?
JimmyDimples Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
I taught in Guangzhou, roughly 90 minutes away from Hong Kong by rail.  Started out as a missionary teacher, but ended up a simple teacher for almost nine years.  Was fun, did some good, and many wonderful memories, but I'm glad to be back in the USA for now.

My friend and I thought it would be good for us if we give points to those who really need it.
That's why we're here, we just want to ask you if you want to donate between 1-5 points if you want, you can even donate more. 
No matter if you can not give us, that ever you read makes me think try to help. 
See you later, I hope you have a nice day?

Thank you! What do you like about my works?
JoeyLiverwurst Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I'll probably say so again on Twitter, but I hope you're having a very merry Christmas Eve.
JimmyDimples Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Thanks kindly.  I'll be putting up a post in the dA journal in a few, so keep your eyes peeled on that, too.  And a merry Christmas to you, too. :) :holly:

Looking forward!
