For The Daily Create, tdc2013, I invited a different Christie over to visit at Erich’s house — not my friend Christie the Girl, but that other one from the beach.
Well, The Daily Create, tdc2008 by @ammienoot (@ammienoot, on Twitter) said to make an off-beat inspirational poster, so I searched in a Creative Commons Flickr for “Walking on the beach” (because lots of inspirational ones show a walking on the beach one), and I chose a very nice picture by Chris Ford, on Flickr that was CC BY-NC 2.0 so it is nice to use for a remix.
Then, because I decided that the words would be about the goodness of making a GIF, I made the man jumping up and down in one spot, and then I tried him moving sideways, and then I decided to make him just go in the footprints. Then the footprints made me think of the Monty Python foot.
So that is what makes it an off-beat one.
Oops — I reported a bit too soon that my move to UNCLE Jim’s place went 100% without a hitch. One thing did happen that was I got a broken screen on my iPhone, but UNCLE Jim gave me some duct tape.
It is just a coincidence that The Daily Create, tdc2005 says to make an “ouch, what happened to your phone?” broken phone screen picture?
Well, the last time I was working on our @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist June 2017 Cohort Application Process Reviews, but then I took a screen break and had dinner.
The next thing I knew, my landlord was banging on the walls and telling me that she didn’t like me playing my music at all hours and that my dancing moves were knocking the plaster off her downstairs ceiling. She just kept going on and on and really started to make a nuisance of herself. She said I had too much stuff, and so when I paid her more money to rent out some more space, it was in a different building and she didn’t even realize that! She didn’t get to the point of threatening to keep all of my stuff, but it was getting a bit testy. Then she kind of stopped talking to me altogether, which was a bit worrying.
(I should mention that I have never had any problems with my landlady before, and that I have had my stuff there for many, many years (like maybe 15 years?), and her service has always been top notch, and I moved other stuff there over the years because of all of that, and that she has always kept the place up to great standards, but maybe there was a change in management, I don’t know.)
Perhaps she really just wanted me out so that she could triple her income by renting my flat out as an AirB&B, but whatever!
I decided to reclaim my independence from her.
I got to packing, and then called up a guy that I know about getting a new home base.
Now most of you #ds106 folks probably know this fellow, because he is one of the founding fathers of #ds106, or, as I like to call him, UNCLE (because he said UNCLE to me back in the day read all about it here) called Jim Groom (@jimgroom, on Twitter) and he and his good friend Tim Owens (@Timmmmyboy, on Twitter) have a thing going where they rent out co-working space on the land where they farm servers. So I managed to arrange to move all of my stuff from where it was to where UNCLE Jim and Tim have their stuff, and it took less than 24 hours and it was a smooth ride. We used a cPanel van and it made the whole thing just fine, like Tim and Lauren (@brumface, on Twitter) said. So now I store my stuff there.
But now I am checking to make sure my cell phone lines are still connected and then I can get back to doing the @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist June 2017 Cohort Application Process Reviews when I get around to them.
Where Stuff Came From (kind of like “Attributions”)
Now, the little story behind this is that my #TrueFriend Todd (@Todd_Conaway, on Twitter) made a one of me, and while I was looking for me, I had the idea to make one back, and so later, after I had been making it for about several minutes, I found me in the one that he made, because I didn’t even see me in his the first time I looked before I had my own idea.
So it was a fun time.
Can you find me in the Todd one (below) and in the mine one (above)?
With the passing of the June 30th deadline (and one day, for grace), I got myself ready to go through the applications for the June 2017 Cohort for @iamTalkyTina Certification for Creatorist. I put my hair, up, logged into my Official Certification Process app, and got ready to go!
The first application in the queue was from someone familiar — ME! I passed with flying colours!
After a bit of confusion with the sort order for the applications (some came in through the web form, while others were submitted earlier via comments in my June 1st web post), it turned out that Rochelle (@RockyLou22) was the next one to go under the inspection.
My #SuperTrueFriend, Christina (@clhendricksbc) was the next one for review, and she did a great job except there was a nasty ALERT that came up on her screen because she didn’t put one in her stir fry.
We got that sorted out in minutes!
Then I had a different notification pop up on my screen, saying that it was time for a screen break. So I shut things down for the day and went to get some food.
Well, this is my last The Daily Create for June, 2017. It is called The Daily Create, tdc1999 two pictures, two sentences story. I have now completed the Alan Levine, (@cogdog, on Twitter) 30-Day Challenge, #30dayTDC.
I will now wait to see if I will be granted my @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist accreditation and badge, for which the completion of the #30dayTDC challenge is a primary requirement. I have it on good authority that my application is complete and that I am likely to meet the standards, but I will have to patiently wait by my mailbox for a notification. My record tracking sheet is posted here for careful perusal. I am so excited! It has been a wild ride and I cannot wait for the next opportunity to get an @iamTalkyTina certification. She is the best! I wonder when the next certification window will open and what I might get certified in next? I will have to wait and see.
Are you going to get YOUR badge? Did you get all of your 30 The Daily Creates done? It is not too late! Although the clock is ticking, be sure to apply before the window closes at the end of June 30th, 2017. You can apply here.
Well, The Daily Create, tdc1998, says to show your Fantasy Band, but I actually have one, called The @iamTalkyTina’s #TrueFriend Orchestra. It has all peoples in it who are on my True Friends Index and have a #TrueFriends badge, except for one who still has to put in her application (not saying any names.)
Instead of giving away all of the answers, I will just say this for attributions:
Plus, because I added a ringer to the Orchestra just today, you should check out her music which I am listening to right now.
Which is really cool, because I remember the ukulele version, too!
Well, I would never be one to spread around gossip, or create a little incident, but he really shouldn’t have said The Mean Word, and that’s all there is to it.
Well, we finally managed to meet up for a little volksmarch in the schwarzwald and had a chance to get our picture taken together.
Now, this is not something that we usually do, as it can be disconcerting for folks to see us together (actually, it can be disconcerting for regular folks to see just one of me) but I have had that flashing light on my list of The Daily Create for since June 14th which has been a bit of a worry for my getting my @iamTalkyTina Certification in Creatorist. Because my exacting standards extend to me as well.
So the need for us to do a panorama with clones put my back channel into gear, and with a bit of scheduling challenges over the past two weeks, seven of us managed to meet up for a quick pic.
Don’t panic too much to find out that there are indeed clones of me. I keep that on the down-low, as it is sometimes valuable for when I am on missions or doing surveillance work. But I am happy that The Daily Create, tdc1983 (suggested by @greeneterry, who knows a friend of mine who doesn’t know me) is done so I will get my badge.
