Hey you guys, you know how I'm always telling you about Twitter? Well, it turns out it can actually be used for real stuff, like the exchange of ideas, and links to helpful or cool websites.
I'm not gonna do any of that--I'll stick to my immature jokes about penis size and hobo livers, thank you very much--but it can be done. In fact, Karen recently had a link to Smashing Magazine that had a whole bunch of calendar designs for your desktop wallpaper. I'm going to link to it, but beware: every time I go to this page, it freezes up Firefox for a solid minute while it downloads the artwork. And honestly, I didn't find many of the designs worth it. Some of them are cool, but none are my taste. If you still want to see them, click here.
The point is, I decided to make my own.
This is my first attempt, and I made it without any sort of forethought, so it isn't the most amazing thing in the world. I only mention that because I kind of dogged on the other designs in the above paragraph, and I don't want you going, "What the? You talk all that crap, and your design isn't even all that much better (although it is a little better, because you're like some kind of design genius, and you're funny and handsome, as well)."
Because I value your opinion. And I really just want love and to be accepted. And to see naked boobs. A lot of them.
I do like my design, though, even if it is a little uninspired. You want to see a screenshot of it? Of course you do, because it's 2010, and people hate things with just a bunch of words and no pictures.
My actual desktop has a picture of my princess in the Polaroid, but you freaks don't be needin' to see pictures of my wife, so I swapped it out. That's a picture of me in my old Caddy from high school. I was a mad pimp, yo. I had a case of Spaghetti-O's in the trunk almost all of the time. But that's a different story.
We're talking about my desktop. I added the lines because I wanted to keep all the various icons on my desktop organized. Everything else, I added just because.
Anyway, I don't know if it's worth downloading or not, but if you want it, you can get the gigantic image here. On the big one, I erased the thing in the Polaroid so that you can add your own picture in whatever photo-editing program you want. In retrospect, I suppose I could have just left that picture, but oh well. Retrospect is for losers.
I'll probably leave the link live until the end of the month, so if you want a February calendar in March--like so many people do--you'll be outta luck. Oh, yeah, and there's a chance that I'll be doing one of these every month. Mostly, just for me, but I'll be sure to share. Because if I'm making one anyway, I might as well just upload it and get a free post out of the deal.
Anyway, thanks, Karen for linking to a good idea for me to steal. And thanks to that woman at Walmart who went in to try on hip-waders and left her baby in the stroller outside the fitting room. I got five hundred bucks for that thing. And there was a pack of menthol cigarettes in the stroller under the baby--bonus!
