In light of the onion skin fail (it jams in every printer I've tried), I need to find a suitable alternative. What I really need is a good paper store. Not a couture stationary store, where I can buy cute cards or embossed notepads, but a true paper store. Like Ryman's. Sadly we don't have… Continue reading paperie
Well, it looks like onion skin is out.
I had the surreal experience of hearing three children sing along to "Handlebars" by the Flobots in the backseat of my car.
I'm going to attempt some printing of Imprimatur on onion skin tonight. Updates later. In other news, my parents dropped off their dog last night on their way to a ten-day vacation. She's a 12-year-old cocker spaniel named Freckles, and she is freaking adorable. My cats, sadly, do not agree.

I just wanted to mention that the Glee version of Kanye West's "Gold Digger" is divine.
I'm seriously considering buying myself a Mac. The computer I have at home eats my homework assignments, and doesn't quite have the capabilities I'm looking for - not that I can complain, as it was free, and continues to be serviceable.
