- ANOTHER BUSY AND EVENTFUL WEEK HAS BEEN HAD
was nuts. I knocked out blogging and cake-making in the daytime, and
then Eric came and got me in the evening to go to Drink and Draw. It was
a special event in St. Petersburg because our usual place couldn't host
us that day. We had a great time and I drew comics and fan art. Got to
see Joy and a few others, too!
- Sunday I got up super
early and saw Eric out (he slept over), and then I finished up some cake
stuff, washed dishes, and got ready to go to Sarasota with my sister,
brother-in-law, and nephew. We had a GREAT time going out to see Dad,
Connie, Grandma, and Grandpa. We had some Panera food, visited Grandma
at the home, did some presents, hung out at Dad's for a while, and went
back to my mom's for dinner (stir-fry) and Ash's birthday cake (a couple
days early). I made strawberry cake and my sister put trains on it! It
was truly an excellent day!
- Monday I sent some packages,
started applying to jobs online, and began some packing at work.
Cleaning out my desk is crappy. :( After work I was an extreme nerd and
bought toys at GameStop, but I got one of the blind bag toys I wanted! I
spent a bunch of the evening setting up nerdy trades with other nerds
online. Wow I've got it bad. Also did some ukulele practice.
I did a decent amount of purging at the office, attended our office's
farewell lunch at GrillSmith, recorded a ukulele song, and applied for
some more jobs.
- Wednesday I went to work early. I sent
some packages, applied for some jobs, did more file purgings at work,
and met Jeaux to eat at WOW Burger. We also went to the comic book store
and I got my new issue of the Steven Universe 2016 Special #1. I'm so happy about it. We watched an episode of the show People of Earth and listened to Night Vale, and we exchanged gifts! I gave him two Steven Universe shirts and candy, and he gave me a Cookie Cat hat and Steven Universe gloves. Wow we're nerds. After he left I made a video.
I just worked on box purges some more, and after work I talked to
Victor on the phone and it was a really good talk! I got a bunch of
webcomics drawn as well.
- Friday I processed a BUNCH of old stuff at work--I'm sorting boxes and files into recycle, review, or keep piles for my boss. After, I went grocery shopping for a few li'l things, got some fun mail, and went home. I posted both of my webcomics and talked to Meggie on the phone while redecorating for Yuletide, and then afterwards I made a Yule Log Cake. (It turned out ugly but it will still taste good.)
New reviews of my book:
- Athena wrote the book up on Maquina Lectora.
- Finished this week: Steven Universe 2016 Special #1 by Rebecca Sugar and Ayme Sotuyo. (This is a short comic book.) Five-star review.
- Currently reading: Eyeshield 21: Volume 26 by Riichiro Inagaki and Yusuke Murata.
