- Saturday was THE BIG HALLOWEEN PARTY. It was probably the least
stressful Halloween party I've ever had, as I didn't do that much
preparation for it and my costume was easy and no one was early so I
didn't get frazzled! Awesome party with awesome costumes. I was dressed
as Mabel from Gravity Falls (and Jeaux was Dipper). You can see
our pics below. Many friends came, about a dozen people, and we ate my
food. Some stayed until the wee hours playing Cards Against Humanity.
- Sunday I just recuperated from the party. I didn't
even wash dishes or clean up. I just ate a bunch of leftovers and was
lazy! I invited my mom to come help me eat but she didn't feel like it
so she waited until the next day. And I worked on my novel for the first
time in a while! Incorporating some feedback from Bad Fairy from readers. I really need to consistently get back into this, but alas, I am so lazy! I also recorded a ukulele song.
was back to work and also Actual Halloween. I wore a pumpkin sequin
shirt and skeleton earrings to the office. Nobody else wore a costume or
anything. I didn't go grocery shopping because I still had so much food
left over! I brought my molasses-ginger animal cookies and my autumn
leaf cookies to work to help get rid of them. Mommy came over after and
ate up some pumpkin roll and pie! Oh and I paid bills. I didn't get any
- Tuesday was a nice slow day and I
wore my Garnet-inspired superhero dress to work like a nerdo. I also
drew some fanart, washed some dishes, and played my ukulele. And fiddled
with my in-progress novel Ace of Arts a little bit, but didn't write anything new.
- Wednesday was uneventful. I had IHOP food with Jeaux, and after we hung out at my place and listened to Night Vale. He ate my last piece of leftover pumpkin pie. :)
I didn't do much but I was asked to play admin on a company Facebook
page and didn't want to use the existing page I have so I made a
separate Facebook account to use for managing it. Heh. That night I drew
webcomics and talked to Victor on the phone.
- Friday was low-stress and I just did my office work, came home and finished the webcomic, annnnnnd kinda fell asleep in my clothes.
New reviews of my book:
- Blogger geekgirlmae mentioned my book as figuring into a search for a label. It's a neat little blog ramble.
- Finished this week: Sorry, nothing. :(
- Currently reading: The Free Lunch by Spider Robinson.
This week's performance was "I Will Remember You" by Sarah McLachlan.
I did two character sketches of Steven characters this week.

If you wear glasses babies will always do this to you.
Webcomic Negative One Issue 0599: "Honest People."
My latest unlisted ukulele video: I played "Everything Stays," which is written by Rebecca Sugar and featured in Adventure Time's series "Stakes." I love this lullaby-like song.
