Morning off...

I woke up with a migrane I went to bed with and by the time I'd shaken it (advil, coffee, quiet and ah... tmi), was running late, so I called in to work and told them I'd be there at 9:30. Which gave me enough time to linger over breakfast, cruise the Internet and just relax a bit. Very nice!

Now I must go.

Dear anti_deviantart,

Thank you so much for friending me at random so I could see what a bunch of classy folks you are. What a great community! What fabulous content! I'm so happy that there are hard-working people out there trying to make the world a better place like you guys!

Way to reaffirm my faith in the human spirit.

Yours most lovingly,

Ellen Million


Whelp. Productive morning, got some contracts done and sorted about 20 submissions. (Yay!) Wrote snarky previous post. Worked on workstuff. Lalala...

Need to print stuff tonight. Posted new art at PA. Cheeeeap art, 'cause her neck's screwy and her mouth is weird and her hair isn't as nice as I'd like and her costume's boring. Still need to go build the payment pages for it. And eek, workstuff...

And more workstuff. Which is better than being bored, but not much, since I'm usually only bored for about... oh, three seconds... before I find something that I can do on EMG. Or writing. Or art. I'm the most easily entertained person Ever. A marble and a toilet paper tube can keep me busy for hours.

Our freezer is in!! We ordered a 7 cf Whirlpool thanks to Safeway's Stauffer's special thingy that gets us a free freezer thanks to eating lots of frozen food. Which, since we don't have a kitchen, is a great deal. Woot! We'll pick that up tonight, maybe.

We went out to dinner last night instead of me working on EMG. (Aw, shucks! *cries crocodile tears*) We split a gyro plate at the Athenian. Mm.... Really, really Mmmm... Worth playing business hookie. See? See? I'm good to myself! Really!

Now to work on the Making Stuff article. One thousand and three patented Ellen secrets in one easy-to-read place.

Gimee a nap...

I’m ready for a nap!

Jake’s off to hockey, after helping me diagnose my car for a bit. (Battery blanket is kaput, and there’s an oil leak. I’m such a lame-o for not checking the oil earlier) It gets to stay dead in the garage overnight ‘cause Napa was already closed for the day and I didn’t really care to put the grille back on and replace the battery just to take it off/out once we’d bought the new heater.

Since the car is dead, I’m here until hockey’s over. Whee. Oh well, I’ll get a ton of printing done. My ink came in! I probably mentioned that already.

I’m ready for a nap.

I *know* I mentioned that already...

My tummy feels (as Catie would put it) ooky, and my back hurts a little and I’m so in the mood for a completely carefree cuddle on the couch with my cat and Firefly. But I’ve returned Firefly and the cat’s at home wondering where her dinner is and I have work to do and shan’t spend any more time complaining about it.
