Christmas and the annoyances of losing my laptop.

Well, as I said in my last post, my laptop unfortunately died a few days ago.
Thats pretty damn bad for me.
I cant colour any of my pictures, I cant animate, I cant work on the blog or the Caramel Marshmallow website...
The worst part of it all is that I could quite possibly end up losing everything thats on the hard drive for that computer.
Most of my stuff is backed up, or somewhere online, but all of the work I did last week for University is completely lost.
My lovely lovely sister Becci is letting me use her laptop though, so Im still connected to my lifeline that is the internet!

Of course Christmas has just been, and it was a lovely Christmas indeed!
I was working on an animation to upload on Christmas day, but my laptop died before I managed to finish it.
I got a pretty descent amount of money for Christmas, so I'm going to pre-order Little Big Planet 2 and Dead Space 2.
Iv also re-discovered Firefly lately, and have ordered the box set off Amazon which should be arriving soon hopefully!

Iv done a lot of drawings, but my sisters laptop seems to have something against my scanner and I haven't been able to get any of them online.
Losing my laptop really has brought up a lot of annoyances for me, im pretty useless without all the programmes I need.
Well, hopefully I'll be getting it back soon, and the universe will be returned to its natural state once more.

My little Christmas poem.

A few days ago I posted this little poem up on the Caramel Marshmallow DA page.
I was intending to animate it for Christmas, but unfortunately my laptop broke a few days before.
My laptop is still out of commission, so my progress with pretty much everything has practically hit a wall for now.

More on all this stuff later.
For now, here's the poem, hope you enjoy!

Its Christmas eve night, and all through the house,
not a sound can be heard, not even a mouse.

Down from the chimney, slips a man in a hat,
he glides stealthily, despite all his fat.

He walks through the house, even though it is late,
in search of a treat, for him on a plate.

His search is in vain, nothing left but a scrap,
His stomach did rumble, it made him feel crap.

Full of malice and hatred with his eyes seeing red,
he climbed up the stairs, and walked up to a bed.

In bed lay a man, all snuggled and warm,
till Santa reached down, and did him some harm.

In the next room along, were the man's lovely children.
And Santa walked in, and swiftly he killed them.

Then the man's wife, came back from the toilet,
when Santa snook up, and hit her with a mallet.

Covered in blood, regaining his sight,
he climbed up the chimney, and flew off in the night.

And on this one Christmas, one family did die.
Because of one missing, delicious, mince pie.

I made a Paradox!

So I really love the idea of a Paradox, and the concept of anything being perpetual, as many of you may have noticed by my use of the name Perpetual mind, and I always found paradoxes really fun.

I always liked this one:
If the universe is infinite, and there are an infinite amount of stars in the universe, how come the night sky is black?
Well, I have been sat thinking about paradoxes for a while, and I think I have made my own!

Imagine you are writing a book about infinity, and it is 100 pages long.
Page 1 says to turn half way through the book, to page 50.
Page 50 says to turn half way again, to page 75.
Page 75 says to turn half way again, but to turn half way, you need to create a page 87.5.

But if you create a page for 87.5, there is now 1 more page in the book, and the book has 101 pages, so page 50 can no longer the middle of the book, so you would need to create a page 50.5.

The mid point between page 50.5 and page 100 is page 74.75, but once you create page 74.74 there are 103 pages in the book, and page 5.5 is no longer the middle of the book.

This repeats its self and you end up with a book with an infinite number of pages.

I am not the best at maths, and I havn't (haven't) quite worked out if this all definitely works yet, but I'm pretty damn sure I'm on to something here.

Well, I'm going to think about this some more and see if If I can make any sense out of it...

Got our new project!
This one is all about faces, and were making a book!
Like an artisty book!

Not sure exactly what I'm going to do for this project yet, need to put some thought into it...

Not long until Uni finishes for Christmas now! (we break up on the 17th I think?)
I'm hoping to get quite a lot of work done over the Christmas holidays, on the new project AND on personal stuff.
Id really like to get some animation done, considering its be
en so long since I made anything.

Haven't really got many drawings or anything to show you, just a guy with a blue face.

On a side note, I've only just noticed that "havn't" isn't a word...
I always use havn't!
Apparently its "haven't"!

I always saw it as Have+Not=Haven't, like Did+Not=Didn't.

anyway, that's all I can think to write for now!
See you again Mr Blog!
