Playing Around with IMVU Avatars

So I have been seeing ads for a while for IMVU and ignored it largely because I am not really a chat person. Maybe back in high school (many a decade ago, heh) but not really now.

I did figure out a great use for it though. Making my avatar a model for a lot of fantasy, modern fantasy shots.

So now I am here dressing up an avatar and editing pictures over multiple programs to give you stuff like:

My boredom has no limits!!!!


Sorry, Posting Late

Happy New Year!!! Went to Hot House on Front St. E. & Church St. on NYE.

Had a house salad, surf and turf and crème brûlée.

And the last shot was outside the restaurant, at the intersection.

Kwan Dim Sum Express

So I was passing through STC and was hungry and look who opened up already? Kwan Dim Sum Express!

Was waiting a while for this restaurant to open so I was pretty surprised when I rounded the corner on the upper level of Scarborough Town Centre, heading towards the food court, and saw the place was not only open but busy.

Well I had some time so I went over, told the host it was just me, and got taken to a table. The host placed a brochure-looking menu in front of me and a pencil, wrote what I suppose was my table number on it and politely left me to browse it.

I picked the fried tentacle, steamed BBQ pork bun and Japanese coffee cake, and…

The food was good. I can’t lie. I was throughly happy with the meal. What I was not happy about was the server that brought it out. Didn’t really acknowledge me; just clanked the dishes on the table, I assume got confused because my order’s brochure-menu was beside me, not in front of me. Then she just drops the desert near me and walks way.

Don’t get me wrong, the customer service with the host at the front of house and the servers that took my order were stellar. I tipped her well. But man, that lady who delivers the food was like being splashed with cold water.

So overall opinion? Good food, good space, good servers, just don’t include the middleman/woman that brings you your food in that equation.

Workplace Doodles and Selfies

I was at work, helping my sister do labels on my day off and I drew this with a blue permanent marker on used paper. Haven’t drawn in a while so I can say it’s not half bad for a drawing that I couldn’t fix or erase. 

This picture I was playing around with an assortment of photography apps (Fotolr, Aviary, instagram to name a few) and figured I liked it despite the fact that I was in my PJs.
