(no subject)

Remind me not to post about politics in my journal, and not to accept new projects into the fold...

Two things you'd think I'd know by now.

Reminders for the artists and writers reading along! Submissions to EMG close on Tuesday, which is also the last day to submit work for EMG-Zine October in the theme of leaves. Autumn leaves, green leaves, take it or leaf it...

Submissions for EMG-Zine

(Remember that there are also a dozen other themes you can submit for, too! And have you checked out the calendar?! Woah!)

So far it's been actually been a lovely weekend, thanks to slow, quiet time with the husband, lots of delicious food, good weather, and watching the Empire Strikes Back (the original, not the sissy re-mastered version. On VHS, no less.). I made potatos and turnips au gratin (mm!), and a mooseloaf with onions and peppers (MM!!), and I've got homemade rolls rising now. I should maybe be working (and have plenty to do!), but the brain says no. Brain wins.


On the topic of politics in my blog... it's not that anyone was out of line, and I'm not mad. I'm just a little shy.

I like to pretend that not too many people are reading what I write, because otherwise I get nervous and overthink everything. Politics seems to bring out a lot of people who may not otherwise comment, and all of sudden I'm on a stage, standing in a spotlight, being grilled* by people who want to know my opinions on things I'm not even all that sure about and the microphone is making that terrible feedback noise and the audience is starting to turn on itself.

I'd make an awful politician - this is the stuff of my nightmares.

*No, nobody did any grilling. I was just... wasn't prepared to be asked, I guess. I'm still sorting out the answers.
