I am currently disobeying the most sacred of office rules: Don’t come to work when you have a cold.
It’s not a BAD cold. The worst day was yesterday and I was still able to clean the house and do all the laundry. I can breathe through my nose, I am filled with medications, and I am swabbing everything I touch with alcohol. If I still feel awful tomorrow, I will keep my contagion home with me.
In the (hopefully) soon to be concluded saga of refinancing the mortgage on my effing house, I sign the papers today after work! 😀 YAY!! I’ve been at this for almost a year. Once these are signed, the estate will be clear, too. Two birds with one stone. Finally, the only legal matter I will have to deal with will be the separation papers; which is basically a “sign then leave office” sort of thing. Easy peasy.
A happy birthday to my friend MisfitLibrarian! I am almost concerned about what shenanigans she will get into today.
Dreamhunter is almost done with it’s typo crawl and now has a dedication and all that fun sort of crap. XD So, it will be up on Create Space by the end of the week. They say it takes 3-5 days for the book to end up on Amazon so I’ll make up dates all around when that happens. 😉
I’ve also started working on a Zazzle shop where the ATQM logo will be slapped on entirely too much merchandise to be healthy.
I’m trying to submit Go Away Girls and Gods in the Grey City (formally known as Ciro and Tia) to this web fiction archive (where it can later be voted on) but they have a 4k word minimum. What, do you think I wouldn’t continue such AWESOME stories!? For shame… *wags finger* The point here being that I think I could effing DOMINATE that list. >D Easily. So be prepared for me to start hassling people to vote for my site daily.
In other news, they started full on construction on the house now that the board of whoevers finally said we could change our own house. T_T It all sounds as you would expect a couple of guys demolishing the second floor of a house TO sound, so I am glad to be at work even though it’s a holiday. Tomorrow, it’s supposed to be icy rain so I doubt they’ll be there. I took Tuesday off to enjoy the boring adult job of registering my
monster kid for school in the fall. Ah, soon I shall once again know the joys of being on vacation yet having the house to myself. >} At least for part of the day. This is only pre-k we’re talking about here.
Oh, and while I didn’t type it up, I finished that script. As soon as it’s typed, I’ll be passing it on to my partner in crime so she can work her magic. Hopefully us working together won’t make the universe explode from the sheer amount of awesome.
Speaking of awesome, I do need to type up my thoughts on Scott Pilgrim vs The World and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. I’ll also be watching Suspiria tonight. See, I’m cheap and apethetic towards most things, not to mention a cynic and possesor of a pitifully small attention span, so I miss things when they are all shiny new. Hence the late reviews. ^_^ Wait till you get my thoughts on Firefly. I gotta watch the first disk again because I had too much fun watching it and don’t remember exactly what happened. I am very special. ^_^
Best be getting back to work, kiddiez. Stay safe and stay warm ’cause it’s too fucking cold!!! >O
If you see something in your local library that you enjoy? Tell. Your. Librarian. I really can’t stress that enough.
Today I had a very nice man ask me how many graphic novels he could check out and my answer was simply "As many as you can carry." XD He’d come from several towns away because he saw online that our collection was so good. I take a bit of personal credit for this because it was my idea to have a graphic novel collection in adult in the first place.
But seriously, circulation statistics are not the only way we gauge if a collection is working or not. Tell the staff when you love something so they can do it more. And so they can smile, because we get yelled at a lot, too.
In other news, the nice men came to knock down the top of our house today. I haven’t seen how far they’ve gotten yet. 0.0
My writing experiment is going well so far. I’ve got one story mere lines from completion, one 3/4 of the way done, and one I’m just beginning. The genres are all over the place so nothing ever gets boring! 😀
And of course, I get a ton if ideas for my two main novels as I work on this experiment. Just lovely. But my muse has always been an attention whore. He likes to mess with my head.
Watch, he’ll give me 2 weeks of writer’s block for that.
