Acid Trip

Skitch is seriously awesome.

I am sorry to any Japanese person that finds my poor language skills offensive, however with a roomate and I that both know a little bit of broken Japanese (she knows waay more), and the inspiration of Japanese homework that asks me to translate questions like "IS THIS MEAT?", I really just can't help myself.

Holy Shit... Its Skitch...

And it changed my life.

So I got skitch today, rediculous. You can like do screen shots that automatically save and upload to your skitch page, and then has a link to paste a linked thumbnail whev you want...andd you can draw on them and stuff. I dont even know the full extent but this seems amazing. Thanks roomie! ;D

I am not in the mood to use it seriously at the moment but I had to try it out. And I think I stumbled across like the best first image ever (with the addition of my scribbles)...
