I'm sad again. Stupid brain chemistry. Stupid credit card debt.
I'll be at the MYP all day today, opening the shop around 11am & closing around 7pm. Please drop by if you're in the area.
I won't be in on Thursday (I swapped shifts). In fact, I won't be in again until Sunday, 6/14. I'm supposed to get there around 1:30pm, but I'm often late.
I read Doug Tennapel's Gear the other night and it was awesome, all skittery lines and brilliant colors with a surreal, but compelling story. Definitely not a kids book, though. Gotta remember that. (I loved Creature Tech and Flink. Both are great fun and kid appropriate, so I recommend them to adults buying for kids on a regular basis.)
I also read the Neozoic trade (called volume 1, but I'm not sure there will be more) from Red 5 Comics and liked it. Alternate earth where the dinosaurs didn't die out, but evolution progressed to humanity anyway. Weirdly patriarchal, actually, but an interesting adventure.
Still savoring Sarah Vowell's Take the Cannoli.
Still working on wish fulfillment as a career option. (My wishes, that is. As opposed to fulfilling the wishes of others, which actually, now that I think about it, would be awesome.)
That is all.
