Wednesday, January 28: Reader Submission

Today's reader submission comes from Oralia in East Bay, California:

"I stumbled-upon the daily lifeku last night, and thank god. I work at a photography studio using photoshop all day, and I wrote 6 work inspired haikus throughout the day. Please enjoy my two favorites, and if you are a cs geek like me - I hope you especially appreciate them."

I know photoshop
I'll liquify your arm fat
You wont even know.

What's wrong with this brush
I need to mask out your bags
Opacity, Whoops.
