A pretty nice weekend...

     My dripping sink is fixed! I think it was August when the issue was brought up...so it took them less than half a year. Next up, the dripping bathtub.

     It is sure nice to have the postal system running smooth and light again. Thank you cards I sent went quickly, and clothes I ordered arrived quickly. Nice!

     A decent price for a nonstop flight to Florida at the end of February. My mom and I are going to meet up there and spend a week with one of her sisters. Should be fun! My first time there, since I won't count landing at an airport there on my way to Puerto Rico back in 1988. Will be a different sort of vacation for me, full of things like SeaWorld and Busch Gardens and the Holy Land Experience...

     Very happy to finally do some writing in 2008. Got myself rolling again on my novella 'Nothing Gold Can Stay.' Moving slowly, but I'm moving!

     And the happy discovery that Poser can handle pictures with two hyarmi together. It crashed attempting a render with all three in, but since only two were touching, the easy solution was to render the last one in a separate pass and fuse the images--as if my struggle with 'Threesome' in 2006 didn't give me loads of experience in those sorts of cheats!

So good to hear you had a nice weekend. Good news on starting to write
on your next novella.

Glad you figure out a fix for Poser.

Not starting, continuing--but I hadn't made any progress since before Christmas. Feels good to be moving again!

Yay for drippage fixage! :D I almost always sleep with a fan on and earplugs in my ears nowadays, but there've been times I've had to sleep--or at least attempt to sleep--while the annoying staccato of a drip... drip... drip... was going on in the kitchen.

I'm sure the postal employees are glad for that, too! I stopped in my local post office to mail a package, and one of the employees said, "I haven't seen you for a while!" I had to remind him that I try my best to avoid the post office during the month of December--especially December 15th onward. o_O

Hope you have fun in Florida! It should be nice that time of year--decent weather and not too many tourists.

Congrats on the writing!! I'd love to get some writing done soon, but I'm not sure if I can. I'll have to try, at least, since Dr Breidenbaugh is letting me sit in on his Playwrighting class. *shoves muse toward unknown genre*

Good luck with the digital art venue! The results are always such a treat ^_^

Happy Monday!

I'm so glad I can't hear it from where I sleep, but if I hear it from my computer I have to go fiddle with it until it's not so loud.

I'm sure they are!

*nods* We wanted to get our visit in before the spring break period and airline prices go up. By late April, it'd be too hot for me.

I hope you can find a space to squeeze some in! I'd love to see more 'Whitehoof.' =)

Thanks! Happy Monday to you too.

A girls trip away? Sounds like it could be very good.

Pleased to hear the writing is beginning to click over again for the year too.

My aunt is very excited. I haven't seen her since my brother's wedding, and I haven't seen my other aunt that recently moved up from Puerto Rice since I was 12.

Me too! I hope you're able to make some progress as well.
