JimmyDimples:iconjimmydimples:
Well, with the new status updates in the "New" dA page... is this Shoutbox thing obsolete?

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?

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.

Ma always told me to send a thank-you note... an actual stamped, mailed one in an envelope... to someone whoever did you a kindness like a giving birthday gift, hosting a meal, letting you stay as a houseguest, etc.  

She always impressed me that showing thanks like that was very important.

Well, there are thank you notes... and there are thank you notes.  Like from The Sketcher :iconthesketcher:

For her birthday, I posted a YouTube link with Darth Vader singing and wishing a happy birthday. (It's my funny link/birthday wish of the year.) 

She sent THIS back as a reply.

Now THAT was funny and great.  Well done, Sketch!  :clap: (Now I can only wonder what if... and wish... I'd sent her the old Three Stooges link.)

Well, today's my birthday. Thought y'all'd like to know. :)
Well, things have been pretty eventful the past couple of weeks.  So before that, let's ease into something a little more normal, regular, and expected.  Yep, it's the 15th today.  Time for the...

And in case you didn't catch it in my tweets, well, I finally made a return to David C. Matthews :icondavidcmatthews: and the Magic Kingdom.  But the week before, I left had a hitch or two.  I'll write all about it when I don't have to take off for work to the supermarket.

The Theorist and the... Minder by JimmyDimples
The Theorist and the... Minder
Well, there I was.  Right on Walt's doorstep during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party to let everyone know there's a conspiracy afoot with all those princesses running around ready to take over the world!  I had aluminum hats ready to pass out to all the little kids to make sure their brains were protected from mind control lasers, spy satellites, subliminal messaging, fairy dust, magic wands, sappy songs and whatnot...

...but then I found this fellow watching me closely.  A little too closely to my comfort.  I turned around to let him know about that insidious New Small World Order scheme that all those pretty little crowned heads had against us.

He seemed reasonably friendly, if slow to smile.  Then he had me pose for a friend's camera.

...I don't remember much after that... in fact, the majority of that day's a blur....
