What I've learned since my last blog post:
If your personal resources are low enough, it really can take 5 months to repair your computer. Ouch!
Art is seriously not a poor man's (woman's) sport. What the hell am I thinking?
I really, really want to compete on Dancing With The Stars! Now, if only I were a dancer -- or, a star...

What I've done since my last blog post:
Actually patched up the ongoing-domino-effect-disaster that is my computer. I feel like Dr. Frankenstein: "It's alive! Alive!"
Contemplated life, health, regrets, and dreams.
Never mind -- not ready to go there. Nothing good can come of it.
Listened to music. Lots of music. Mostly: Chris Isaak, Rick Springfield, The Click Five and, oddly enough, The Zombies. Oh, and the soundtracks to the "28" movies (more on this, below).
Checked out the new TV season. I might refuse to speak to you if you're not watching:
The Mentalist (CBS) -- Psychic? Prestidigitator? Crack investigator? I do know that that Simon Baker is the cutest man on TV. By that, I mean 'every-mother's-son, ruffle his hair, just adorable' cute. Just gotta love a man with a tortured past who is blatantly cuddly, charming, funny, and always the smartest person in the room.
The weekly mysteries are decently twisty; the humor is suitably sly. Sublime!
Life on Mars (ABC) -- Struck unconscious in 2008, a police detective wakes up in 1973. Ah, the '70s, when real men wore wide collars and polyester shirts, and music came on giant vinyl discs. Those were the days!
The sci-fi/supernatural elements of this show make it irresistible. Impressive cast, too!
Crusoe (NBC) -- An unexpected adventure/period piece/buddy show. Think 'Starsky and Hutch on a deserted island' (only, with a less-grumpy Hutch). Simply enjoyable stuff with two very likable, and very different, guys leaning on each other for survival and friendship -- like buddy shows used to be.
The Eleventh Hour (CBS) -- Science-based mystery series. Lousy first episode, but has been very good, since. Ignore any bad reviews that were based on the first ep. The show has definitely moved up and on.
Mostly, I blank my mind and gaze, longingly, at the lovely, talented, and very mysterious Rufus Sewell. Later, of course, it's necessary to rewatch the episode to see what it was actually about. I offer no logical excuses for such hormone-driven behavior.
Watched lots of movies. Most notably (and frequently):
28 Days Later -- Biological apocalypse ravages the UK.
28 Weeks Later -- Sequel unfolds as biological apocalypse reinfects the UK.
Both movies are a hundred percent better than my tongue-in-cheek synopses, and are two of my favorites. (Definitely NOT for the faint of heart!) Perhaps the best soundtracks since the original 'Star Wars'. Hold on a sec, I'm gonna load them up, right now!

. . . Ahhh, that's better.

What I'm doing now:
Renovating all my online sites (see 'W. J.' links, right) with new banners, colors, revised profiles, etc. Also, I'm boosting my inventory to prepare for the Christmas rush. (C'mon Christmas rush!)
In honor of the "28" movies (above), I'll be posting eye candy (aka 'W. J. artwork or product') every day for the next 28 days. Some posts will be pics only, and some will be pics + general yada yada.
Know my spotty blogging history and don't think I can do this? Well, I don't blame you, but allow me to prove you wrong. Check back, often, to see what's new!
And, so, it begins . . .
