Under Construction
San Francisco Gay Pride parade

September 26th, 2006

Not Even You
Tuesday. A book signing in San Francisco with Wilson tomorrow who's had something published or re-published, he didn't quite say when he called. It's being held at a pub, so overindulgence is possible the night before I visit the cardiologist in Palo Alto for my annual sonogram stress test on Thursday. I'm not sure it's good to pull one of these stunts when you're hung over, but we'll see. We'll call it a learning experience. Well, I'll call it a learning experience.

I ordered a couple of PhotoShop books from Amazon after taking the class in San Francisco Sunday. I realized I had the instructor's book for version CS, but the class and his new book were based on CS2 with the discussion focusing on an updated Bridge, a component I haven't been using because, well, I had no idea how clever they'd been in filling it out. But now I know. Ho, ho. So today I have his CS2 book on the way from Amazon to take its place beside all of the other PhotoShop books I've bought and skimmed and never quite read beyond page three. I make no promises.

Who could possibly care about your PhotoShop missteps? If you're honest, not even you.
