I am a Jeff Thomas Fan


I love Jeff Thomas cartoons.

This is my digital creation

inspired by a phone conversation

I had today with someone special.

They said to me with such passion,

"I am not a fan of this"

I couldnt wait to get home and do this cartoon.

He is the truth

When my world is lost of creative spark,
when there is no color, only dark,
thats when I look to you.

SCORE!

I set a goal and achieved it!
I havent been in a size small scrub since college
and even then I wore a medium.

The future is ahead,
prepare for it.
The present is here,

CPT

Excuse me while I take center stage

and tell you about my measurements at the gym.

Since I started at CTP on 5/10/10,

Ive lost 15.75" from my body.

11 of those inches Ive lost in the past 4 weeks.

Of the 8 body parts measured,

my greatest loss was my AB Girth (navel) at 6.5"

I am just getting started people,

and you can do it too!

Alone

Thats not Sam in the back, its me as a child.
I was alone then and now when Sam is gone, Im still all alone.
I romanticize that one day I will share this world
with someone that enjoys me and loves me
...the same way I love them.
and that is my definition of the word;
HOPE

It never gets easier,

you just learn ways to ignore the reality.

Im waiting for my better things to fall together

"I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong
so that you learn to appreciate them when they're right.
You believe lies
so you eventually learn to trust no one
but yourself...
and sometimes good things fall apart
so better things can fall together."

Still

I want to sketch him while he sleeps
paint him while he works
and just watch him from a distance
for he is my muse

Snowboards By Amanda Delight

I might as well call all of these ideas in my head,
My Production Team.

Score




On the ferry ride over to the island,

she wispered to me,

"Mommy, this is awesome"

Why wait for the future...
there is no better time than now.
So yeah,
after a couple years of her wanting to see the "stachieo of liberty"
I finally got to share it with her.
It was priceless :)

Here is your Reminder


I dont see the point in dating.
I dont date.
I dont do relationships.
I dont want to be the GF to a guy that says hes single.
I dont want to be the GF to the guy that is still in love with his ex.
I dont want to be the GF that is lied to and cheated on.
I dont want to be the GF that really isnt the GF at all.
I just dont want to be that girl.

Quote for the day

"Life is one big road with lots of signs.
So when you riding through the ruts,
don't complicate your mind.
Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy.
Don't bury your thoughts,
put your vision to reality.
Wake Up and Live!"
- Bob Marley

Wise Investments

‎"The first step to happiness

is deciding what you want,

the second step is doing whatever it takes to get it

and the last step is enjoying every minute of it"

Today I decided to invest into my happiness.

I have always put others first,
but I think its about time I make myself happy.
I have a few things on my list that Ive been wanting to do.
So Im saying fuck it,
Im taking some money out of savings and buying some happiness.
Some say you cant buy happiness...
well those people obviously are retarded.

Quick!

What color are my eyes??
...Yeah, thats what I thought...

Fin


Captivated

I love to watch you smile, talk and laugh.

Your mouth has me captivated.

Come a lil closer,

I want to study your face.

I want to touch it,

with my hands in my pockets.

How much does your soul cost? Is it for sale?

If you are asking me how much I charge for commissions,
then you are talking to the wrong artist.
You should invest in art because you like it...
not because of the price tag.
Artists that can ask and get high prices are doing so because they can.
And I can.
But, those who know me well,
know that I give most of my work away.

My Advice to Mom

You want to be the "complement to his swag" because if he hasnt achieved more mentally, physically, financially or spiritually than you in life,
what does he have to offer or teach you?
How would you benefit from having him in your life???
What would you gain???
The answer is NOTHING.

So why even bother???
Look for your equal and save yourself the burden.
Movin On, Movin Up!!!!

You are worth it!

You work too hard in all aspects of your life
and deserve to share it with someone that works just as hard
...if not harder.

Always remember I love you
and these are all things that you have taught me,
Im just letting you see it from my prospective.

Paint

Love is my biggest inspiration.
But somewhere along the way
Ive lost track about what that really means.
Its not the person Im painting...
but its the paint itself.
Of course a muse or object of my affection helps,
but I learned yesterday that I can paint anything,
anywhere...
and still be happy.
Stay tuned, a video will follow.

North Hampton Beach

As I watched her freestyle her "hip hop" moves in delight as she waited for the next wave to come in, I thought about how lucky I am to have her in my life. To share this world with her and to see her experience it, is a true blessing...the greatest form of inspiration I have ever had. Why would I need or even want to look further?

"I Love You"
After playing in the sun, we walked down to the Purple Plum. They had 70 something different flavors of ice cream. Samantha had Oreo and I had Pistachio. OH and lobster rolls for $18...I thought I would wait to get back in Maine where I can grab one for $5. Which reminds me, holy crap I saw a lot of nice cars down there...and fine looking surfer guys ;)
We went to the beach to see the huge waves that everyone was talking about, thanks to Hurricane Earl. I parked at the part of the beach that was mild, but still huge waves were coming in.
God I love that smile, I could kiss her cheeks for days :)

We made it

Late last night, the pillows felt so good!
Damn long ass drive.
Dreaming about North Hampton Beach in the morning :)

Ride Tonight

Just around this corner
is a hill that I hate to climb.
Its long and seems to take forever to peek.
At the bottom of the hill.
This is about 7 miles or so into the loop Ive been doing after work.
It was 86 out
and I certainly thought
I looked like more of a hot sweaty mess than this.
Tonight I completed mile 93.

Sunday, August 29, 2010

Tonight I got that run in, here was my view

Track of Trek Training

8-27-10 Bought new rode bike
8-28-10 = 30 miles Rt 1 PI Rd
8-29-10 = 13 miles Rt 1 Van Buren Rd
Total weekend: 43 miles
After three hours of nothingness in my head
as I rolled back into town on mile 29,
this song came into my head.

"I sit and wait does an angel contemplate my fate and do they know the places
Where we go when we're grey and old
'cos I've been told that salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I'm lying in my bed thoughts running through my head
And i feel that love is dead I'm loving angels instead

And through it all he offers me protection a lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong and down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me I know that life won't break me
When I come to call he won't forsake me I'm loving angels instead

When I'm feeling weak and my pain walks down a one way street I look above
And I know I'll always be blessed with love and as the feeling grows
He breathes flesh to my bones and when love is dead
I'm loving angels instead"

Friday, August 27, 2010

I feel. Im real.

Hi, you've reached Amanda.

Sorry I'm unable to come to the phone right now,

but I'm busy wearing ear plugs to his song,

listening to the universe,

feeling the wind on my face

and living in the moment.

Now excuse me,

I have a bike to ride.

Blank

I am creatively uninspired,
dead in the water of nothingness.
Blank.
The well is empty
and its been a drought for a very long time.

Football Season 101

Here is what I know/like about football:
Sexy hot men wear these tight lil pants
and once in a while I get to see one smack the other on the ass,
and that is fantastic!
The End.

The boss just braided my hair

and Ive been instructed

to wear it to work tomorrow....
