Are You Sure?

A usual day...

Woke up in the usual fashion - fell out of bed. I've got a lump the size of a fist on the side of my head. Owie.

I had a big print order to get out before noon - propaganda cards for the local Communist party. Hey, I'll take jobs as I can get them. It's 37 below today, and gorgeous - all frosty and pink. So I went out to take a walk in shorts. A brisk walk, as you might imagine. Got back to find that the squirrels had gotten into the house. Worse, they'd gotten into the liquor cabinet.

My house will probably never stop smelling like rum. Poor Velcro was traumatized in the corner. Norway chased the squirrels out and called animal control to complain about the negligence of the Squirrel Protection Patrol that we signed on with last month, but they said there was nothing they could do. Rogue squirrels, you know - hadn't signed the amnesty agreement and were outside of their juristidiction. So I'm out a few liters of booze and they chewed on the legs of the dining room table. I'll have to sand out the chewmarks and refinish the surface.

Printer's still running off cards, but I've got to go watch that it doesn't start modifying the text. It has a mind of it's own, it does, and the client will not be happy to find 'down with the reds' added at the bottom of each cardback!

Alright, I've got scissors to sharpen. I hope your day down the rabbit hole is half as much fun.


Finished up a box of stuff for INATS and got it off to the post office, though I didn't have bookmarks or business cards, so I'll have to send another little package express. Maybe. Not sure it will be worth it just for those things. Might send it priority on Monday and hope for the best.

Paid for license.

Finished another article for EMG-Zine that I may publish in February 'cause it looks like two writers bailed on me. No, four, but two of them were only for a compiled bit. Still have to compile the bits I do have. I was holding out hope! Ho hum!

Wrote the State of the Site address and posted it to my artists.

My headache went away last night, but I must go eat now because I had no IDEA it was almost 2:30. Sheesh!
