What's Up With Me?
For one thing, I went and saw the new Harry Potter film on Friday, Harry Potter And The Goblet of Fire. How is this a project, you ask? Well, ok, it wasn't. But I did do a review of it which I posted on BloggingHarryPotter.com, which if you remember is the group Harry Potter Blog started by Seth. We only seem to be able to attract me and him as bloggers over there, so I do about half the writing for it. It's not too late though! If you're a Harry Potter fan and have something to say about it, head over to the blog and sign up in the sidebar.
I've also taken the opportunity this week to start seriously learning Paint Shop Pro 9, which I bought for a steal like 6 months ago. There are a ton of sites out there with tutorials so I've just been browsing about on them. If you're interested in that sort of thing check out Pinoy7, which is a great site for PSP tips and tutorials. To see what I've been doing with my new-found skillz, check out this thread and this one at The Chamber of Secrets Forums. Note: I also downloaded and tried out GIMPshop, an open-source graphics and image editing program that has many advanced tools. It's not as easy to use as PSP or Photoshop, but if you're cheap, that's the way to go.
Well the only other thing I've been doing is Christmas shopping. That's always stressful. Some of the people on my list are extremely hard to shop for. I did most of my shopping online, so at least I didn't have to go out to the stores. Wish I had known about this site though. It's called Pricerunner, and it lets you compare prices from retailers all over the internet for a specific item. It actually works, too.
