Me, wheeee!!!! I am really chuffed with my latest acquisition – my first ever scanner, and what a beauty it is too!! Admittedly, I am somewhat behind the times on this technological front, but in my defence, I have never needed to scan anything up until now – indeed have never used a scanner up until now. And I’m normally much more on the ball with such electronic innovations, having championed both the mobile phone and the Minidisc in the mid-90s (“MP3s? They’ll never catch on; are you seriously expected to cart your PC around to listen to music?” – a somewhat Betamax moment from me, I think you’ll agree).
Anyway, the purpose of my scanner is to copy graphs, tables, diagrams and a whole host of scintillating information. But I actually think it’s much more fun to preserve old film pics for posterity. Behold!
The other thing I have been enjoying greatly is the ‘Manga Me’ game, which has taken the Flickr world by storm. I love it, and am particularly impressed with how much mine actually looks like me! Whenever I draw cartoons, this is exactly how I depict myself!
John’s, on the other hand, looks somewhat less grumpy than he is in real life
You really must have a go, and be sure to share the results!
