This is gonna be one of those mishmash posts, as most of mine are, I suppose.
First, here are some low-res pictures of the the new color we used on my daughter’s room. I took them with my cellphone this morning, so they aren’t great. Also, the blue tape isn’t a feature. I just painted the window frames, and haven’t taken down the tape yet.
Yeah, not great pictures. You get the idea, though. We love the new color. So much better than the plain white.
Remember the Pirate issue of Shimmer magazine? Well, they’ve made it available for free today and only today in honor of Talk Like a Pirate Day. I plan on downloading it today. It’s running a bit slow right now (thanks to the Boing Boing effect I think), so you might want to wait a little bit before you try to go there.
Some exciting things on the writing front today. I’ve actually had some story ideas! One is for NaNoWriMo 2008. Good times. I welcome the return of The Muse with open arms.

Congrats!! Run with it.
I know how it feels to finally have ideas. Wait – no, I don’t. The Muse hasn’t visited in ages. I miss her.
Is it yellow? That’s the color we painted our oldest’s room when he was first born. LOVE it!!
Thanks for stopping by Steph 🙂
Chris – yep, it is yellow. I’ll try to get a better picture one of these days.
Congratulations on your muse returning! 🙂 Do you do NaNoWriMo every year?
PS: I love the colour of the room!
Yay for self-made painting. I’m devoted to white walls and to be honest, I dislike yellow to quite a level, but if you like it that was the best you could ever do.
A friend of mine painted her walls to the most exciting colors I’ve ever seen. Strange, but looks great.
axnewxhorizonx – I completed NaNoWriMo for the first time last year. I’m gonna try again this year. Thanks about the color.
SzélsőFa – yellow wasn’t my first choice, but it looks nice. We let the daughter choose from a few we like. I personally liked lilac, but I was told it didn’t match the curtains.
The fact your daughter likes it outrules any nasty comment from any virtual friend form overseas, believe me 🙂
