A few days ago, I had posted about failing the April Film Challenge, and that I had ordered some training DVDs online. Yesterday they were delivered, and I started watching them.

Wow. There are 7 DVDs... DVD-ROM, not in-your-DVD-player ones, you pop them on the computer. Each DVD is about five hours worth of tutorials, and they are laid out really well, at least so far.

This could be really cool.

Art Garfunkel once told me I was funny.

I was all excited, and told Barb when I got home.

She said "Yeah, because Art Garfunkel is known for his judgement of humor".

Have I mentioned that I have no ego left?
