About this Entry

Do you feel: sicksick
Can you hear: Carmina Burana - Orff

I only just woke up


I've been medicating my cold with paracetamol and more mild stuff such as wasabi, horse radish and garlic during the day and hard stuff like pseudoephedrine or Phenylephrine hydrochloride during the night. These drugs are dangerous for me as I'm very sensitive to them. They can knock me out for hours at a time.
The thing that scares me most about it is that I don't dream. I get this kind of time drop where I close my eyes for a second and it's ten hours later (and this is the "Non drowsy formula") and I still feel tired. Needless to say I avoid driving after taking these.
I usually wake during the REM cycle and so I remember my dreams very well but on pseudoephedrine all I get is a second of black.

Talking films


I've solved the problem with exporting and managed to get my footage onto DVD to be presented last night at Kion. I even made a menu system with a bit of Ink Rain in it. It went down very well and I think Kino is starting to take off again. I'd like to go to Sydney for their Kino but it doesn't look likely at the moment.
With regards to the Dusk Day film I'm working on the storyboards and hope to get them finalized on the weekend to get the whole thing rolling.

and all is right with the world, well almost


I got a new graphics tablet pen delivered today and it works strait out of the box. I'm thinking of hiding it in a box so the cat cant get at it. Now all I need to do is get over this cold and I'll be right.

Form me the drugs I do take are more for managing symptoms.
It's hard to get sleep if you can't breath.

Aah, so you still couldn't find your stylus?
A quick but expensive solution! XD

What tablet did you get? I'm thinking of buying one at some point too.

I've got a Wacom Sapphire.
It's old and quite small so I'm thinking I may need to upgrade when I have the cash but at the moment it's doing me proud. I'm also running two wide screens so lots of space so I keep falling off the side of the tablet.
I'd recommend looking through ebay and other online shopping things for a good second hand one.
A graphics tablet is essential kit for anyone doing digital art. Drawing with a mouse is like drawing waring boxing gloves.

Whoops, I should have rephrased that - a new tablet.
I've been looking at the Wacoms on amazon. I've been told the Bamboos are pretty good for doodling with, whilst the Intuos are the best but pretty expensive!

I noticed you were a bit more tired than lately, and you were sleeping a bit in your chair before dessert at dinner last night, so made sure you didnt flop your face down in your bowl of icecream... XD Hope youre better today!

I didn't take anything last night so I would wake up at a more reasonable hour this morning.

Hmm okay... dave's definetly getting your cold by the way, so hes got alot of cold meds and anything to get rid of it- hes been very tired, very irritable, very cranky, stroppy... and didnt even realize it was garlic he was smelling the other night when I asked him to smell a jar of pasta sauce for me to make sure its not off so I knew before he even knew!

Hope today went well for you especially with the filming.
