- Saturday I chilled with Victor most of the day. We spent the
morning hanging out and walked over to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch and did
some shopping. Played with toys. I got a featured post on that app again
so I was enjoying responding to people's comments on my pictures of
cartoon-inspired food. I did my blogging and some doodling.
I realized I'd left my toaster oven on all night after making a potato
so how about that. (Nothing happened except I couldn't figure out why
the kitchen was weirdly hot and the paint peeled up on my cabinet above
the appliance. Glad it didn't turn into a dangerous situation.) Texted
with a friend about cartoons, did some music recordings, and talked to
Fred on the phone.
- Monday I went to work, made a
cartoon post about my books and comics which got put on the front page
again (so, again, more fun conversations with people!) and had to edit a
letter at work. Mom came over and took me out to eat with her roommate
David. We also went grocery shopping and then just chatted with friends
- Tuesday I had a low-key day at work, and after I
got home I had the apartment manager come over to listen to the
upstairs neighbors. She didn't hear anything worth harassing them about.
Surprise. Then I found out I won the site-wide art contest on the Steven Universe
Amino app. Wow! Well, that makes . . . one time . . . that I've ever
won an art contest. . . . (Wait, didn't I win a poster contest as a kid or something? And another one in middle school? Yeah. Well that's it.) People really like me a LOT there! I got some
boring adulting stuff done, like processing a return, filing a
warranty, and reorganizing my accordion file of personal paperwork.
I got a bunch of stuff done at work that I'd had on the back burner for
a while. My company also got shortlisted on a project so YAY. On my way
to meet with Jeaux a persistent dude kept hitting on me in a way that
would have been sort of funny if it wasn't so awful. He asked me what
brings me here . . . at the bus stop . . . (what do you think, dude?),
asked me if I live "with a roommate," asked a really awkward question to
find out if I was still in high school, asked me if I was doing
anything later, asked for what I like to do and when I said read (and
attempted to do so) he interjected that he never reads anything, read my
shirt and stared at my boobs for a very long time after he was done
reading it, asked me what my phone case was from and when I said it was
from a cartoon he asked "you don't DRAW cartoons, DO YOU?" and when I
said yes, he said "let me guess, you like to draw . . . flowers. and
cats." (what?), and then attempted to get my phone number by saying
"here, write your number down" and handing me his bus pass. I said no
and he thought I just didn't understand him so he tried again. And then
even AFTER I told him I was not giving him my number, he told me he was
going to "some museums" this weekend if I was interested. WTF dude how
awful would I have to be to you before you'd read me as not interested?
Anyway Jeaux and I ate at Holy Hog and listened to Night Vale, and I fell asleep like right after he left.
I did some editing on my first Pitch Wars mentee's next manuscript, did
some work on the shortlisting documents at the office, and had a
conversation with a financial adviser (seems like I'll probably be good
working with him in the future). At home I read liveblogs, talked to
Victor, and drew some of my comic.
- Friday at work was a little busy and I got to work on design again. Then just some forms and paperwork and making copies. Went home and posted some pictures on Amino (sharing some of my photos of merchandise again--it got put on the front page, AGAIN), and finished up my webcomic. Didn't do much after that because it took so long. I did a few doodles in pencil before falling asleep.
- PG gave it a 3-star review on Amazon UK.
- Finished this week: I didn't finish any books. Sorry.
- Currently reading: Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay.
This week's performance was "Marble Halls" by Enya.
Webcomic Negative One Issue 0622: "Definitely Meant To."
My latest unlisted ukulele video is "Vanilla Twilight" by Owl City. I kept forgetting the words while trying to play, so I just gave up and looked at the screen.
