Also, as mentioned before, migraines suck.

Here is a nice little video of Hugh Jackman promoting Free Comic Book Day, Saturday May 2nd! (And also promoting his new Wolverine movie). Visit the Free Comic Book Day site for more information and to locate your nearest comic book store.
I might actually have to drag myself out of bed this year in an attempt to obtain Blackest Night #0. We'll see. Dragging myself out of bed on a Saturday morning is not an easy feat.

This week was week one of our two-week State Testing Extravaganza. I'm wiped out. Last year I was able to storyplan Radish in between monitoring test-taking habits of my advisory group. This week I finished my 3rd quarter grades and prepared for afternoon-after-testing classes. Maybe next week I can Radish.
Sigh. Must also mow lawn (neighbors beginning to glower). Must also put away the 4 loads of laundry I did last night (putting it back on the pile neatly folded: not acceptable). Must attempt to tear myself away from the many (!) eaglecams that I can't stop watching (and the Portland Red-Tailed hawk, two of whose eggs hatched in just the last two days!). Must resign myself to the fact that (evil) FOX will probably cancel the very well-written Sarah Connor Chronicles and mourn accordingly. Must get a good night's sleep.
PS Still working away reading Bleak House before I nod off for the night. Slow progress.........

Yesterday Papa Eagle brought this live eel to the nest and it slithered away. He had to go after it. There's video of it on the blog, but here's a still of Papa returning with it to the nest. Fun for eaglets.
There is a sharp-shinned hawk in my neighborhood. I saw it wheeling overhead while I was waiting for the bus. I wonder where its nest is and if it's the same one that I've seen on many other occasions.

But in five minutes, if the bowl is still empty, it will be a completely different story.
Head on over to Illustration Friday and find other interpretations of poise.

I want optical illusion shades. I don't know what I would use them for, or what the illusion would be, but the thought of them is cool.
Not my best coloring attempt. I'm practicing some stuff on paint shop that I usually ignore.
