Mondaily with art show wrapup, weekend review, Guppy with dice.

Today did not go as planned. Let's just leave it at: no nap was taken, and nothing got done.

It did not help that I thought Guppy was FINALLY down to nap when we got a good rattle of an earthquake (5.18, I later discovered). She was VERY alarmed. "The chimney!" she told me, when I came in to get her. "It WIGGLED." (I suspect it was the cage around the chimney, but close enough.)

She had excellent little meltdowns before, during, and after her bath, and fortunately fell asleep as soon as I put her down to bed and covered her with pink blanket.

The cat throwing up was pretty much the high point of the day, otherwise.

The art show on Friday was great fun. I sold about as much as I would have at a small one-day bazaar show; no originals, but a good selection of coloring books and cards. (I did briefly think I might sell the original of Journey - it got a lot of comments, and one individual I talked to extensively about it came back and looked it over closely several times - they even commented that the price I was asking was really good and that they wanted it. But, no go!) I got to hang out with fellow geeks - including some storm troopers and a very tiny, entertaining wookie - and it was, in all, a lovely evening.

Unfortunately, I wore boots with slight heels, and my back was... not quite sore, but definitely not PLEASED with me... for the rest of the weekend.

Saturday, I got caught up on a number of fiddly things - post-Kickstarter add-ons, emails (inbox from about 250, to about 150!), programming. I worked on some client things, fixed the Sketch Fest site a tad (products now expire and renew correctly, managing products is a little easier), debugged a few things at the Lilypad, and updated the Coloring Books ordering page. That's now entirely automated through the lilypad, which is nice, and I got all the new books set up for automated royalties, which I got entirely done. Woot! $802 paid in royalties paid out today, which feels simply LOVELY.

I also got a poem that's been bobbling around in my head finished and submitted to Torn World.

Sunday was gaming and I caught up on INKtober (though, having done nothing today, I am now behind again...) and ate a lot of delicious food.

Today, we aren't talking about.

Here's a photo of my little proto-Geek playing with my gaming dice:

Now, I'm going to find something mindless to watch on Netflix and work on a piece of artwork I have due. Maybe with some alcoholic cider, because it's been A DAY.
