But man, I hate illustration contracts.

In other news, I have a basil plant on my window sill, I am about 1/6th of the way to having a new bed frame (I seem to redesign mine every year or so) and I got done with writing early today. I had a lovely walk down by the lake and watched the ducks chase one another about loquaciously. I am being a horrible flake about what I want out my living situation long-term; my inner hobbit demands property and garden space, but my apartment is lovely and I <3 downtown.

I now have no idea what to do with myself. Maybe I'll bake muffins.

Friday, [profile] sfogarty is going to be in town. Hurrah!

I am moving to a 1 br apartment around the first of May, once I give them an inordinate amount of money to make up for my not being all middle class and whatnot. (Nevermind that I carry no debt, have lived here for 3+ years and have never been so much as late with rent...)

Hooray, I'm going to have a counter!

Cue moving paranoia in 3..2..1...

A post for interested folks who aren't on the central_steam journal:

Milwaukee Chamber Theatre announces “Steampunk Night” on Thursday, August 20 in conjunction with the production of AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS. The design, set and costumes of AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS are inspired by the steampunk aesthetic. On “Steampunk Night,” MCT invited enthusiasts to wear steampunk attire to receive a HALF-PRICE TICKET for the 7:30 p.m. show on Thursday, August 20. The event will start with pre-show activities hosted by Steam Century in the lobby. Then, after the show a concert by Madison-based steampunk band Eli August at 10:00 p.m. in the Skylight Bar & Bistro.

Anyone up for an entourage?

Today I walked a touch over six miles in total, including a trip to the last farmer's market of the year, to the library to get my card and some delicious looking new books, to Asia Mart (yes, it's really called that), and to the local Ethiopian restaurant, where I got to have sambussa. They're like samosa, but full of sagey lentils.

Eating in season is cheap, especially when you aren't buying particularly romantic vegetables. For twelve bucks, I got two bunches each of carrots, beets and turnips, a pumpkin for Samhain night soup, three large colored peppers and a carton of pretty colored eggs. Here is a very blurry picture: Read more... )

Went back to WV this past weekend, as my brother had some spare miles from his previous job (in which he had to fly to Tampa once a week) and they were going to expire. Read more... )

Lo, I am indeed alive. It's been a while since I posted here, and since then, I've moved, had serious car trouble and finally gotten Internet at my place. Read more... )

Well, the current tenant moved out early, so I get to head up to my new, shiny apartment a week before I'd planned to. I'll be heading up on Thursday to get my keys, and moving will be accomplished Saturday. So, folks who wanted dates to see me before I left town should get their bids in soon. After all, I still have a chunk of packing to get done.
