- The week felt long--maybe because it was the week AFTER a four-day week and going back to normal was hard.
I went out with my friends Sarah and David. We had brunch at Keke's and
gave each other gifts. I gave her a box of stationery and office
supplies, and she gave me a candle, some stickers, and a gift
certificate to Michaels. Which I then spent getting purple markers so I
could finally finish coloring a doodle of Amethyst. (I'll share when I'm
done inking the other drawings on the same page.) I took naps and made
some arrangements for traveling.
- Sunday I went to see
Victor in the hospital. My mom was nice enough to drive me and we
brought him some chicken tenders and hung out. After that I talked to my
sister on the phone and got some basic chores done.
I sent a toy trade to a Tumblr pal, came home after grocery shopping,
and received my Cheeseburger Backpack! I preordered this thing in
February. Hooray! There were actually two in my mailbox because a
British friend wanted one and they don't ship to the UK, so I ordered
one for her. I spent the rainy evening doodling a picture of SU characters in a casually intimate pose. Ruby and Sapphire are cute as heck.
I mailed the extra Cheeseburger Backpack to my friend Susan, then went
to work and found out MY COMPANY WON A REALLY BIG CONTRACT with our DOT
and everyone's so happy. We had a little party at the office, which
included cheese, chips, fruit, and wine. Then I took my mom out to
GrillSmith and ate potatoes and cauliflower, and she slept over.
I got my toy trade in the mail and was pleased to complete my
collection! After work Jeaux and I ate at Marlow's Tavern and I had a
REALLY good hummus plate with yummy things to dip into the hummus!
After, we watched a voice actor panel on YouTube and hung out. After
Jeaux left I did some reading.
- Thursday I didn't do much except update/reformat my Tumblr page for asexuality arguments.
- Friday I just worked and posted my comic.
- Claire gave it a 3-star review on Goodreads.
