I Am Disorganised

I plot and plan different ways to organise myself.  I follow through ~ briefly ~ and then go back to my old ways.

When I started posting cartoons, I started putting each into folders as I used them, so I wouldn't use them more than once.

It never worked as well as I hoped.  Something like Picasa probably would help.  I really want to sort the pictures in at least two ways.  I put them into folders by strip, and then I put the ones underneath each strip in a "used" album.  But once I was "too busy"* to put them in the appropriate folder, everything fell apart.

I should have the cartoons in one big folder and flag them by strip, by whether they're CD  (or CD-ish like this one), and whether they've appeared in the blog.  I could probably come up with another half-dozen tags that would help me sort them for the blog, or my own enjoyment.

It's going to take some time to organise.  I have roughly 3000 cartoons right now, and perhaps another thousand in print that I've cut out of various sources over the years.  At least I know the printed ones were never in the blog.
As for the strip today: I need to pay attention next time Charity does my mascara.  Do I open my mouth?  Does she?  Or do both of us?

* "too busy": there's never time to do it right.  There's always time to do it over.

  1. I believe everyone applies mascara with their mouth partially open. I'm pretty sure I open my mouth wide to apply gel or liquid eyeliner, as well. In my case, it forces my eyes to open wide. YMMV.

  2. The reason you open your mouth to do your eyes is that it elongates your face and gets your cheeks out of the way.

  3. Cute, I never noticed, but I probably do it with my mouth open. Also, like your last comment, never timew to do it right, but always time to do it over. How true! Don't feel bad, you're just like everyone else, whatever the gender.

  4. I think Annie has it's a natural human reaction for the mouth to gape open when the eyes widen.


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
