Today was very good  
I've had a great day. So I'll start with the kind of bad news first. We took the battery out of the car and went to get it checked. It was ok they told us so it's either the starter or the alternator. So we put the battery back in then I called AAA to come have a look at it. The guy said it was the alternator but he charged my battery and I decided to take my car out to Tire Kingdom and let them inspect it and let me know what was going on. So we took the car there. I was nervous and stressed over this but Chris took me out to Toys R Us as I did not really want to think about it anymore. Chris bought me some awesome toys. I got an ornithopter, a Jurassic World Book bag and some cute wind up centipedes.

Then we went to eat at Stake and Shake. It was crowded and the food took forever but it was yummy once we got it. I love the hot sauce there. It's more of a hot juice as they just have peppers floating in vinegar. So we bought a bottle of that because I really like it. While we were eating we got a call from Tire Kingdom. It was the alternator and the battery was very old. Well the car was sitting in a garage for 3 years. But it wasn't that expensive being they'll install a new battery and alternator and that includes the labor too. But they don't have the parts yet so they have to keep my car over night. They'll call me when it's ready. So that means tomorrow I'll have a nice long walk to go pick my car up.

We rested at the house for a little then went out again to Tractor Supply. I needed more baby chick food and shavings. I also needed a new wallet so we went to walmart to pick it up. We found an awesome Mosasaur figure from Jurassic World and picked that up. I love it. This is my fave Jurassic World figure I have so far.

And tonight I am thrilled that I drew this for Father's Day.



It's a scene from No Longer One chapter 5 when George reveals to Leeanix for the first time what he really is. He was afraid she'd reject him like everyone he's told the truth to. But no not Leeanix. She thought he was beautiful.I'm very happy with how this turned out and I do plan to color it.

OH speaking of coloring. I'm thrilled my tablet works again on my laptop. I uninstalled everything and just booted it again with the disk. It works now. Thank goodness. So tomorrow I can do some inking. I really want to finish inking the drawing of Owen on fire for the first time and now I need to ink this pic too. Well first I need to finish drawing some details like her other hand and her centipede legs.

I can't wait for Wed so I can go see Inside Out. I'm very excited about that movie. My gosh this summer is going to be great for movies. Kung Fu Panda 3 comes out and it looks really funny. And there's a move coming out called The Secret Lives of Pets. It's a CGI cartoon movie. The art is terrible but the story seems funny. Well the most important thing is there is a budgie. I've never seen a movie with a budgie. I hope he has a big role to play.

Oh and I finished drawing page 7 of Renegade. I'll have to post that next time.

Current Mood: Hot

Well, I'm glad your problem with the car was diagnosed at least. A new alternator would cost a bit, I think. But it's worth it for having a car. And a nice long walk tomorrow may be good for you....as long as it's not too long!

Wind up centipedes would be cool :)

Love your drawing of Leeanix stroking George. Of course she would not be scared of him.

I'm so glad your tablet works again on your laptop.

Sounds like a good summer of movies, too!

Yes it will be worth it once the car is in perfect working condition. A few more things to figure out about that still.

I'll post pics of those centipedes.

Aw thanks. It's very sweet of her. George is so used to rejection he thought it would happen again.

Yes it will be nice to make some art again. Been too long.

Yes this will be a great summer for movies.

Good, now you know what is wrong with your car.

I haven't eaten at Steak and Shake in years. I used to eat there more often when I lived in Indiana, but there are a lot more of them there than here. The closest one to us here is half an hour away.

I wonder what Gallemotch's plant head feels like.

Yes hopefully soon everything will be in working condition.

It's so yummy. That's too bad there aren't many in your area. There are several here.

I imagine him feeling dry and hard like cracked earth. The lines are actually deeper grooves than the rest of him.

I just got my car back. It runs great. I can feel the difference. It wasn't too expensive. Nothing we can't cover and make up in another week of work. So it's good. I'll post later about what happened as it was a funny story. Not so much to fix on it now.

It's a nice American restaurant for burgers and fries with the atmosphere you'd find in pre-war Fallout. They have these very good patty melt sandwich called Frisco Melt which are divine.

Things are just going great lately. I'm so happy. Yes the drivers went bad which makes no sense. Literally one day they were fine and the next they were bad. Uninstalling everything and reinstalling fixed the problem. Thank goodness as I am making progress.

Yeah the last few years there just haven't been movies I've wanted to go see in the theaters. But this year is different. I was telling that to calzephyr As she posted a pic of the budgie on her journal and I noticed the bad feet. But that's the right budgie attitude so that's good they get everything else right. I also like the fat cat that wanted to eat all the food in the fridge. Yes poodles are funny and it's great when they don't fit the froo froo stereo type like his master was.

Yes seems both Po and his dad are dumb ENFP's. That's so funny. So I need to watch 1 and 2 before I go see this one as they seem to have good continuity. I live bovine anthros too. Ages ago I was toying with a minotaur character but nothing ever came of that. I like the bulls and the rhinos in Kung Fu Panda series. Or specifically water buffalo.
I already want some of those toys for Inside Out. I think Anger is my fave. They had these big plush dolls at Walmart but in those I liked Sadness best because she was so flat and huggy. Plus I like blue. But she's the one that I know will annoy me most in this movie.

Yes. I need an oil change next week though on the next pay check as the oil has probably been in the car for the last three years.

Here is a pic of the inside of the restaurant.

The way part 2 ended I had no idea his dad was also stupid.
Yeah adding one to either project of yours might be good.

Oh yeah you know I have no patience for sad and depressive people as you've seen. So I think even as a cartoon this emotion will annoy me. Yes Joy or happiness is a very heightened emotion which is also too much. Like I said I do believe everyone has a default emotion. For me it would be content which is a step down from Happiness. The way leeanix looks in my icon.

Yes they are not to expensive.

It's much higher quality than McDonalds or Burger King which I don't see why people eat those unless there's just no other choice. Steak and Shake are still "fast food" but much higher quality and a bit more expensive. So they don't get the traffic the other two do. I also loved the Johnny Rocket's they had on the cruise ships. It's even more styled after that 50's America. I've never seen one of those on land though. Perhaps they are not a Florida thing.

Yes I thought he was like a wise old bear too. Well we were wrong hehe.

Ha yeah INTJ's tend to be grumpy, annoyed and cynical but yes that's caused by things around us.

Yes there's something heavenly about a well made burger that makes you feel so good. There's nothing good at McDonalds. I remember it used to be good or ok but I was a kid. When I got in my 20s it started to taste gross. Then I thought only the breakfast stuff was good but I got sick of that too and avoid eating there if I can. Burger King is even worse.
