I'm feeling pretty generally uphill, and fear I may be coming down with something - I've been having sneezing and sniffling fits, though don't feel particularly under the weather (yet?!).

The uphill feeling comes a bit from working up this post on EMG-Zine, and a bit from staring despondently at my project list in general. They're all great ideas, but I feel like I've failed a bit in execution. I lack appropriate followup. I should've realized sooner that I needed to be able to code my own work. The changes I'm making now should have been made a few months into EMG-Zine, not a few years. Lots of potential, not enough realization. Other similar thoughts.

Shopping right now pisses me off. Seriously. It's not the crowds, it's the displays. I like the glitter and the shinies as much as anyone, but Every Single Thing is made cheaply in China. Hello? I have vowed that I'm not buying any of it this year. If I want a shiny or a pretty, I will commission a friend or make it myself.

Anthology now, while my lunch baked potatoes are baking.
