3.27am local time, Typhoon Signal No. 8, 26°C (78°F), pissing down

WE’RE in the middle of a tropical storm. It’s Force 8 gale outside. Everyone’s supposed to have spent the last 24 hours shatting their pants off. We didn’t. But since the telly’s showing “The Ice Pirates” from 1984, maybe that’s excuse enough to do just that.

Self-made wallpapers

I’VE been unwell these couple of days and had been sick (US: vomiting) yesterday. Feet became swollen and, since 18 hours ago, swollen eyelids as well.

Being that I’m in this state, I’d be writing something even less sensible than usual. Let me share some of my self-made wallpapers to kick off September instead.

Please play Earth, Wind and Fire‘s tune September in your heads if you don’t have it on CD.

Original scene was an IKEA display. All images created by meeeee! Click on image for larger size. Feel free to use any for personal and non-commercial uses.

(Yeah, this post is what we call a “floater” in the editorial business…)
