Pfft!

I am pissed.  I have been ‘moody’ the last couple of days mind you but today I get home to a “not accepted” email on a texture set I did for a dynamic outfit at Poser Pros, as it is per them “textures are flood filled, not realistic enough, no detailing”.  I have trim, I have appliques, I have used transparencies to change the shirt!  What the hell were they looking at?  The outfit was hard to texture to begin with.  The pants twist, the shirt mapping distorts, so I used textures that wouldn’t show either off. 

Some of the stuff that is in the store are straight flood fill textures and gawd awful ugly, yet mine:  clean, simple, textures could go to hell.  Considering that the textures are for a ProClub outfit (means exclusive) for a ProClub character and nobody else has even bothered to make an addon for the outfit, I am furious.  Considering that the creator of the outfit itself loved the texture set…I was floored and yes, still furious.  I want to pull my whole store in outrage which I know is silly but I am pissed!

On another note, I turn 3-5 tomorrow.  Tonight or tomorrow, I have to drive my father to the Airport for another trip to the Dominican, two weeks this time.  He better not come home early, I will be pissed.  He has been nothing but annoying for over a week now since B.C.  I love him to death don’t get me wrong but he calls constantly, is now always complaining he is bored, he hates his new apartment, is bored (yes, he meantions it LOTS during a telephone conversation so I mention it twice, lol) and it is getting irritating.  I hope he gets his next small settlement soon and CPP starts and then he can go do whatever he wants.  Move, travel more…I don’t care but stop bringing me down!  make the most of it.  I thought the money would help him, nope.  In fact I think it is worse :(

I rented 3 movies for the next couple of days.  The New World, Population 436 and Lake House.  Tomorrow I plan on vegging..oh and maybe signing up for some tanning sessions.  I need the pick me up.  I should go find a new hairdresser as I feel like a drastic change, lol.  I actually meant to call her today to see if she had anything available for tomorrow, but forgot. 

Anyways…thank you for listening to me rant.  I needed that!

Wow…been a while!  I have been busy with the kitties, my father and of course work, both of my jobs.  My father goes to the Dominican on Saturday, I am so jealous.  I have been spending money like there is no tomorrow.  My car needed brakes, I needed new work clothes for the fall as I have unfortunately grown out of the ones in my closet (currently on day 2 of trying to remedy that problem by Jan 1/07) and buying kitty litter!  Seriously, having six cats…I should own stock in litter.  In another week I can start looking for homes for the kittens.  I may try to find a home for Molly too…she still does not fit in.  Still not a nice cat and it  has been since June since I took her in.

I have been working on my 3D stuff and unfortunately today, decided not to try and broker my Heaven Bound texture addon at Daz.  I had redone the textures based on their suggestions, submitted it two weeks ago today and heard nothing back on them at all.  I emailed them a week after I sent them back in and they had been busy and hadn’t had a chance to review them yet (Daz Madness was on, understandable), but them I emailed on Friday, nothing.  So this morning wrote to them that I couldn’t wait any longer and that I was unsubmitting the set.  I mean…this addon should have been out a week or so ago, if not sooner since the outfit has been out for a while now.  When you do an addon, you try to do it rather quickly so that people remember the model and buy the addon.  Unfortunately I think I have lost my window of good sales on it.  But when they emailed me back today, I was asked if I would be interested in some commissioned work, which I think would be neat.

So this weekend, finish the HB addon and finish another.  Hopefully get promos and such done early next week and get them both in for testing.  I hate mats/promos – yuck!

Anyways…Dad bought me a 27″ Sanyo flatscreen TV for my 35th birthday.  I had a 19″ Sony Trinitron (one of the first ones made) which he hated.  I love the clarity of it and the sound.  Maybe turning 35 isn’t so bad, lol.

Well time for bed, tomorrow will be an early and LONG day.  7am start at the first job, work til 230pm and then head to the next one for 3pm and work til 9pm.  I’m beat already just thinking about it!

The best laid plans…

So I didn’t get done everything I wanted to get done this weekend.  For one, I didn’t get my texture set done, heck I haven’t even touched it (may do so after I post this post).  I was hoping to have the time yesterday to work on it, but ended up spending most of the day with my father shopping and when I finally got home was just too tired to sit at the computer and play.

I also, didn’t get to the gym – I needed one more workout in to make it 5 workouts for my first week back.  I am a tad disappointed but I feel okay about it.  Food was carefully watched (except for the Breast Cancer M&Ms I decided to induldge in today) so even with only 4 workouts in I should have a loss next week.  Should…you never know what the evil scale has planned for you :P

I am excited about tomorrow and having my baby clean, inside and out and dent free. 

The goal for this week, 5 workouts, have brakes worked on, start looking for a personal trainer and finish the texture set for the next go round with the brokering company.  Oh and visit Burlington’s Ribfest with Dad on either Sat or Sunday.

Cars, 3D and kitties

I am getting my car detailed on Monday, I am so excited as my baby hasn’t had a thorough cleaning in a year or so, bad me!  I could do it myself, but I don’t have that much time to do the kind of cleaning she needs so I went to a detailer got the cost and booked her for first thing Monday.  He says he can probably remove the long scratch she has on her passenger side (Hallowe’en 2004) and a few others she has and…pull out her dent (someone seems to have kicked her!).  She is going to get a good cleaning in and out including carpet shampooing and leather conditioning. 

Then, I will book an appointment for her brakes to be done and get new tires.  My father has been pushing me to get this both done but I have been putting it off because she has been awfully dirty…it is embarassing!  Not that I leave garbage, etc in her..nothing like that – but the dust, etc…is just way bad.  So yeah, I am too embarassed to take her to a shop, she must be clean or at least not dust covered inside and out, lol.

On other stuff, I have been busy playing with my graphics (3D) again.  I have the potential to make a little money on a texture set I have been working on by brokering it at Daz3D.  I submitted images of the 6 textures on Monday asking if they were interested and they said they were but they had a few suggestions, which I am working on.  I hope to have it back to them for review for Monday and hopefully the nod shortly after.  It is the store to broker at, no others compare to the sales you can make.

The kittens are growing…and starting to learn how to walk.  This weekend I will be removing all items from the closet, putting some plastic down and then a blanket – buying a small litter pan for that area.  Also putting up some cardboard at the entrance, too high for them to get out of but low enough Mommy can.  I can say they are adorable, the orange one…is quite the character and seems to be the leader.

So I did nothing all weekend, nothing at all. It was absolutely wonderful, though I feel like a lazy slob, lol.

I have been tirelessly working on fixing up some code and populating a store front for my Poser goodies and tonight opted to play a bit. Here are three quick renders, click on thumbnail for larger image :)
