Uber Geek, I Am Not

I come to the realization I am not an uber geek. Yes, it is true. Now this is not to say that I am not a geek in general, because I do love my techno stuff and I do so love my Mac's, but I am not an uber geek. What does this mean to you? Nothing. It's all about me.

I am so happy not to be working in IT administration or on websites for people and I am so happy not to be forcing myself to learn and follow up on my Apple Technician certifications. I realize I have never been truly happy until now. I am a designer. A decorator. An organizer. .... A queer guy with an eye. ;)

Yesterday I spent four and half hours at a furniture store making the final furniture selections. It was really enjoyable. Today I was at the Hidden Pointe Townhome site. The builder, architect and I were going over the plans of the unit the builder purchased. The kitchen was being redesigned. It was a lot of fun!

Then we went to lunch at some meat-eating establishment with really bad wall paper. You know, some kind of BBQ place. I didn't realize we were going there. I did manage to find a small salad with no meat and I dare say I had a huge plate of CHEESE FRIES and diet Coke. They were so good.

Now I am going to spend the next hour and fifteen minutes on the treadmill.

Just For Fun

While visiting The Banal Chew the other day he had a post linking to this, The Perception Laboratory's Face Transformer.

So I present the following scary photograph of yours truly. Here I am at the ripe age of 21. Look at that big hair, the tan and what's with the mustache? It was my Miami days while attending the International Fine Arts College (from Hell).

Now after morphing, I present to you the new East Asian me!

Hey let's take it further. Here is my baby, Nora-Grace, the little Boo. Isn't she sweet? Don't let that face fool you. She will bitch slap you given a chance.

Now after morphing, I present to you primeval, ape boo-cat!


Here is Modigliani Boo and last, but not least....

Magna Cartoon Boo!

You would think as a design consultant, decorator or whatever you would call my fabulousness would have a brilliant office at the Hidden Pointe Townhome job site, right? NOOOOOOO!

This is it. I'm stuck in one of the unit’s four-car garage's where it's ten degrees cooler then outside that bloody door! Meanwhile, outside there is a masonry saw, a jackhammer and fifteen workers are hammering away above me. I simply can't work under these conditions!

Heh, heh. I'm just kidding. Actually, I am enjoying the environment very much, but I did move my "office" to the builders shed.

What is it you ask? Why it's a wax putti ball sphere thingy, duh.

You see it's like this. Melissa purchased this ghastly thing in Birmingham many, many moons ago. It was her plan to give it to someone as a gag gift. Truly, it would make anyone gag. She ended up giving it to Steve and Jim a long time ago. Recently it made its way back to Melissa.

For about six months or so we pondered on what to do with it and how to give it back to Steve and Jim. We came up with the idea to drill a hole into it so we could insert green glow sticks and hang it in there yard late in the evening. Well last night was that night. Steve and Jim had out of town guests and were at a pre-St. Patrick's Day party so we jumped on the opportunity and set our plan in motion.

Look, it's a glowing green Putti UFO ball sphere thingy!

In this picture the power of the Putti ball is attracting spirits to it. In the world of the paranormal the spirits are called orbs. Like attracts like.

Being that Savannah sits on some rather bizarre lay-lines it has a mighty vortex. Often referred to me as the Vortex of Goo.

Since so many terrible things have happened here the goo is powerful and there are many trapped spirits. Savannah is one of the most haunted cities in North America for that very reason.

Melissa, my accomplice could not stop laughing.

Afterwards we returned home triumphantly and finished a bottle of wine! However Steve and Jim telephoned later in the evening and threatened retaliation. Is this the end of the Putti wax ball sphere thingy? We shall see.

P.S. Yes, the beard is gone. WIth the recent weather being in the 80's I can't deal. I am not fond of hot humid weather. When it arrives I get cranky. So there you have it.

Clients! Clients! Clients!

I haven't had much time to read blogs or to blog myself. All of a sudden I have many clients! I am not complaining by any means. I am just well, relieved and very busy. I love every minute of it!

These days I am just trying to figure out time management. I have never seen my calendar so full. The interesting thing will be juggling all the different designs I have to pull together.

Again, I love every minute of it.

Savannah can truly be scary sometimes.
