- Saturday I was at my dad's, having slept over the night before. I
hung out with my relatives and my sister P called on the Facebook
messenger so we could video chat. Got to see my nephew too--cutie pants.
We all went to see my grandpa and then had pizza out. My dad and my
aunt drove me home and hung out at my place for a bit before driving
back to Sarasota. I was pretty tired so I crashed early.
I felt really, really awful--low point of the week. Somehow I still
managed to make three videos, though--a karaoke video, a ukulele video,
and an asexuality video. I'm pretty ridiculous. I also drew a bunch, did
laundry, showered, and unpacked.
- Monday I felt a little
better so I went to work. I did some troubleshooting and some marketing
at the office, and even managed to do grocery shopping after. Jeaux
brought me Moe's food and we talked about cartoons! I finished some
- Tuesday I got to get up a little late because I
had a doctor's appointment. I did the appointment and they recommended a
blood test, so I let them be vampires. I didn't feel good and I didn't
feel terrible either. Mom came over and I ate sunflower tofu. I drew my
webcomic and did dishes and hung out with Mom. She even gave me a nice
back scratch to help me relax. :)
- Wednesday I had some
design work stuff to do at the office. The doctor called and my
bloodwork came back normal, so I scheduled a follow-up to figure out
what else could be wrong with me. I wrote a trivia quiz and went to Five
Guys with Jeaux. After, we watched the season premiere of Wrecked, a funny show about being marooned on an island, and we listened to Night Vale. I also processed the videos I made on Sunday.
work was typical and after the day was over I met with Victor at my
house. He had an International Potluck event happening at his work the
next day so we made krumkake together. It was fun but pretty labor
intensive because we made so many. Also got my comic done.
- Friday I had another typical workday and went to Drink and Draw after. I drew some writing webcomics and some fan art. When I got home I opened some new toys and they were cute.
New reviews of my book:
- Leah Markum gave it a two-star review on Goodreads.
- Danielle Marie gave it a three-star review on Goodreads (while noting that the review will be edited when the reviewer finishes reading the book).
- Nancy Hall gave it a four-star review on Goodreads. Also put the same four-star review on Amazon.
- Subashini gave it a three-star review on Goodreads.
- Finished this week: Nothing, the book I'm reading is gigantic.
- Currently reading: The Ancestor's Tale by Richard Dawkins.
This week I performed "Dancing in the Sky" by Dani and Lizzy. Special request. :)

(I doodled this at work because I am a dork)
And I made a weird comic, sort of, which took forever because the colors got messed up, leaked, and streaked. Click the pages to blow up. The deeper context won't make sense to people who don't watch this show, but the pictures are still kinda fun.
Webcomic Negative One Issue 0632: "Fists."
My latest asexuality video is Letters to an Asexual #47 and it's about religion and asexuality--how religion fits in, some supportive and not-so-supportive experiences one can have in a religious context, and some thoughts on relationships between celibacy, morality, and asexuality.
My latest unlisted ukulele video is "The Special Two" by Missy Higgins. I'm playing while I was sick so it's not that great.
