Connections ...

Yes, it finally arrived. Remember that Wacom Bamboo graphic tablet I won? Well, it arrived today, way earlier than expected. For that I have to say a big thank you to Inmagine and especially to Connie and Evonne (who are from Inmagine) for helping me get my tablet out to me all that much faster. It pays to have friends in the right places ... hehehe ... I know you guys at Inmagine read my blog so thank you very much :D Inmagine is simply the best! Ok, ok, enough sucking up already ... LOL!


I got a call from Evonne (who services my company) yesterday wanting to confirm my address cos she said Santa was coming by my place and this morning, Connie (who also services my company) called and said that they got my tablet with them and that she was on the way over with it. And she brought along some other great goodies as well such as calendars, notebooks and some nice green non-woven bags. I've always looked forward to the calendars from Inmagine cos they make some pretty good ones and I wasn't disappointed with this years edition.


And I couldn't wait to get home to test it out, so much so that the moment I got home, I ripped the package apart and configured it up and started messing around with it. I must say it was pretty cool, not that I've come up with any works of art just yet though ... LOL! The only thing I managed to do was write those words up there ... hahaha ... not a very artistic thing is it?

That was the only cheer to an otherwise not so nice day. A lot of things are happening in my life at the moment and I just want to hide out in some quiet corner of some cupboard. I'm so mentally and emotionally drained that my buddy called this evening and asked me what time I was coming over for our pre-Christmas bash this Sunday and I went like what pre-Christmas bash? Really buddy, I don't remember us making plans for it. You guys know I wouldn't miss this for the world but I honestly don't remember. And I'm sorry if I ruined your plans.

But this is the reason why I consider them my best friends in the whole wide world. Because I couldn't make it on Sunday, they decided to have it on Monday instead. At least we'll still be able to have our traditional pre-Christmas bash that we've been having for as long as I can remember. I don't think I can ask for any better friends than those two idiots, urrmmm, I mean guys :D

Ok, I'm off to mess with my Wacom tablet and see if I can whip up a masterpiece along the lines of Rembrandt or something ... LOL! But first I need go find the best diet pill's around seeing as how I haven't been doing my usual daily run for close to a week now. The tummy is getting just a tad bloated again.

  1. Hey the tablet sure looks good. But it isn't made of bamboo, so you could sue them for misleading you! :)

  24. Even though I have now seen it, I still don't really understand what this tablet thingy is. And unless you're going to put it in your mouth why on earth is it called a tablet anyway? Hehe.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what works of art you come up with and maybe then it will all become clear to my muddled mind.

    I hope whatever is going on in your life that is causing you stress will soon be sorted out. Big hugs.

  25. Meleah - LOL! I'm wondering why they call in a Bamboo tablet cos like The real Mother Hen say's, it looks nothing like a bamboo ... LOL!

    I'm hoping to sort it out soon too. I don't like feeling this way ...
