    Been listening to the police scanner online and it sounds like someone was caught, they're collapsing the perimeter and that there's gonna be a news conference in a few minutes! Sounds like this could finally be it!

    Edit: Yay! Sounds like they got the badguy!

    You bet! Work ended up being cancelled, but I have a feeling they're going to want me to come in Fri and/or Sat eventhough it's my days off :/

    Yeah, they're gonna want you to work, but tell them you're traumatized and need a couple days to.. I don't know.. relax, maybe?

    dont even have to say that, really. tell them its your days off and youve got plans. If you start giving in once, you give in forever.

    Actually, what he says is kinda true.. unless you're in a union, perhaps?
    But if you're not and they're pricks, then use the traumatized version.

    No, you have to do this with every employer. Fuck unions, its always a personal matter. As soon as these people that tell you what time to be where forget that you are a person and you have a deal with them, they will plan your time for you, without taking your consent into it.

    I agree with you both..I've known a lot of people that bent over backwards for their job and got shafted because of it, and I'm certainly not that kind of person! At the same time, I'm also only about a month into this job and trying to impress them for the management position that's open.. By no means am I going to give up my life to be a company-woman 24/7, but at the same time I want them to see that I don't mind helping when they really need it. As it is, we have a huge sale coming up, and have now missed essentially two days to prepare for it.

    Well the basic NES characters arent too bad, as long as the artist can do straight lines. They don't have that many details so it is mainly just filling in the fields. The Gordon I got does have quite a lot of 1 pixel sized fields which makes it more complicated and more time consuming.

    I mainly just googled Gordon Freeman pixel art and found this sprite but I changed the colours around a bit. Should learn how to do sprites myself so I can convert more stuff into pixels, but since minecraft there is a lot of pixel art for just about anything heh.

    No this is all I got so far, but adding a Megaman to it soon (2 weeks). Then I will have to see what more I want, probably something for portal, and I would love a pixelated Faith from Mirrors Edge but her white cargopants makes that a bad idea for a tattoo heh.

    I suppose you must fight for your right to party.
    And if you do get fired, I'm sure QC could use another editor in the Canadian branch office.

    might take a while, and it depends on how good you are ;D

    I used to do editing for 7 years or so, compositing for longer.

    Although you're showing off the Gordon Freeman one, I was distracted by what looks like an awesome Bubble Bobble tattoo. I've got some fond memories of playing that game (although I've never considered getting it inked onto me!).

    I haven't heard anything. RCMP had a press release this morning but I was in bed..assuming it was mainly saying that they got the guy. I imagine we'll find out more in the coming weeks/months as they question him. So far, just going by his facebook he pretty much hated police/govt and was out to get them. Really surprises me that he gave up..I was expecting him to try and take out more officers and essentially die in the process. :/

    Still not sure yet. Just got up, and I have 4 more hours before I'd have to leave.. Got up because we were supposed to have our RPS D&D session but I'm not sure if it's happening now..I'm cranky and want to go back to bed, so I'm leaning towards not going!
