Hurrah for a weekend!
Following up my July 8th post, my commissioned piece by Nambroth is already complete and soon to be heading my way. Black wolves plus wings plus pine forest = delighted Joelle. =D
I'm glad that at least ONE day of the workweek this week did not have a single crisis. That was Thursday. Apparently my boss being out and Greg going to a funeral on Friday was summons for all chaos to break lose. IDM Find was down, HPII was not running, we were having trouble accessing some fileshares, e-mail was staggering, and the internet connection was acting up...I picked up my phone to call down to paper scanning to see if they were surviving it--and my phone was dead! At that point, I was so ready for the power to go out next *laughs* I won't be forgetting this Friday quickly! At least it didn't last too long, though it probably felt a decade to the poor paper scanners.
Human ingenuity is a wonderful thing. I thought for sure somebody somewhere must have invented a walking stick/camera tripod, and so it was. It came in the mail yesterday, so now I'll have the support I need for the big zoom on my new camera when I'm out in a wild paradise somewhere.
Last but not least, Dune Lolcats captions = love (If you haven't read the book/seen the movie(s) don't even try to figure it out.)
Goodness, what a week! You must be worn to a frazzle by now!
That commissioned piece is stunning, though! I can see why you are so pleased with it.
My apologies too, while I'm here. My computer went down for repairs shortly after getting the last chapters of book4, so I haven't been able to read them yet.
I'm glad Wednesday afternoon and Thursday was quiet and Friday's mayhem didn't impact my area too much, or I probably would be! See what I'm feeling like when I get back from today's overtime, though. I'm craving a 'real' two-day weekend! ;)
I'm looking forward to getting it. I think I'd like to bring it to work, at least for a while, so I can enjoy it daily.
I hope it doesn't give you any more trouble! =P You need to focus on that thesis! Glad to hear the chapters didn't get lost somewhere.
YOUR COMMISSION PIECE IS LOVELY. I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING IT IN PERSON.
WHEN DO YOU EXPECT TO RECEIVE IT?
SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE HAD A CRAZY WORK WEEK. HOPEFULLY THING WILL SETTLE DOWN THIS
THAT WALKING STICK /CAMERA TRIPOD SOUNDS VERY INTERESTING. WHERE DID YOU GET IT? HOW LONG IS IT?
I don't know if she's mailed it yet, as she lives out in the country. I expect it will arrive this week--it's ink and marker, so no need for drying time.
It's not off to a good start, as Nancy's machine broke down at the end of her overtime Saturday, so that's what I'll have to deal with when I walk in the door Monday. =(
I got it off of eBay, but the company that makes them is online. The length is an issue--it is adjustable in height, and comes apart, but I need to figure out how to take it completely apart to fit it into my luggage. Otherwise I might have to mail the longest part over if I want to use it (like at the bird sanctuary) when I visit you guys.
