I like the lower prices at Wal-Mart and go there at least once a week, but I also had to laugh at the newest video from Jib-Jab (an ad runs before the video starts). They make a good point. No wonder that Wal-Mart has hired a top publicity team to improve their image!

she is shifting position -- it all looks pretty
realistic although I think the wings interfere with the
overall effect. I am learning much about animating -- so

Printing photos is so easy
these days. I remember when you would take a roll of
film, either 12 or 24 pictures could be made, then you
dropped off the roll at the local store and waited a
week or days. It seemd like forever, then you would get
your prints and some of them would be over exposed and
(P.S. Here's my avatar today. I feel like a kid playing dolls again online, but even more fun is Photoshopping them into little animations and icons.)

I was out for a morning walk right after dawn today. While I have friends that I walk with, I was alone at the time. I came to a little cement classroom-type place with a teacher's table in the middle - a kind of lecture table.
I could not believe what I saw on it. A body was laid out across the table, legs hanging. It looked so strange that I thought it was a dead body or a body stuffed to look dead. (It was a little hard to tell from the distance I kept.)
I shouted, "Are you okay?" Nothing. I was beginning to dread the worse. I whipped out my cell phone and moved a little closer (still keeping a good distance and ready to run). I repeated my question only much louder. No response again.
By that time, I realized this was a real body. Even if it was a joke, I thought I would report it to 911 and let them decide how to handle it.
As I pressed the first number, the person on the table lifted his head. I almost jumped. It was a very tall man who had been deeply asleep. He had a clear voice and did not seem drunk or stoned when he sheepishly told me, "My wife kicked me out of the house last night."
I don't know where to believe him or not, but at least he did not appear ill or drunk. I told him that I was just concerned and I left. Sometime later, and with friends, I came back to this spot. He had left. This was what he had slept so deeply on, though.

so it was only a virtual shampoo, but her hair looked
mighty good when we were done. We were chatting all the
time in different scenes and found many places we
could sit in the IMVU beauty salon.

I did some virtual trick-or-treating last Halloween. (The chocolate was plentiful and had no calories in it. In fact, no IMVU food has calories - that is why I am so thin.) I wish I could fit into clothes like these, even if I would only wear them in cyberspace. Ha ha!

A friend saw my soup recipe and gave me his recipe for broccoli salad. He swears it is wonderful. This sounds good. I plan to make it. Thanks, w|e|s. (The text below was written by w|e|s.)
