…and still shaking the pillars of heaven
Sweet Mother of Pearl, yesterday was an asskicker at work. I’m pretty sure I delivered a pizza to every other person in the Sacramento metroplex. I was dead tired by the end of the day. Thankfully, everyone I delivered to was generous with tips, so I averaged about $25.00 an hour for the day, including wages.
When I got home, issue #361 of Alarums & Excursions was waiting in my mailbox. I missed getting a zine in for it, but I’ve got a good idea for what will be in my next zine, so it should be cranked out in plenty of time for the next ish.
My summer veggie garden is winding down. I’ll probably pull the tomato and zuchinni plants this weekend, with the chiles and cantalopes following in a week or so.
…and then time stopped.
Got the latest issue of Alarums & Excursions today…issue #360, the 30th anniversary ish. I was actually kind of thrilled to see my name and zine back in A&E after all of these years. I reckon I’ll have to contribute for a few months or so.
My cantalopes have started to ripen, which means I’ll be picking one or two every day for awhile. Picked two tonight after I got home and I ate one for dinner. Exceptionally sweet and yummy. we also picked the first of our heirloom tomatos, a Cherokee Purple, and it was delish.
Picked up Dork Tower #31 today and it was excellent, as always. Oh, curse that Kovalic and his cartooning talent, anyway:)
Due to our Adventures In Poverty, Grace and I are falling way behind on our movie viewing. I fear we will not see “War of the Worlds” or “Fantastic Four” until they hit Pay Per View. We’ll try to see “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” soon, but we may have to waste our money on food or bills or other frivolities.
Hey, all of you who will be going to GenCon next month, I expect to see lots of daily con reportage here on LJ. And post pictures if you can.
Bedtime calls, so more blogging tomorrow.
…and don’t take any shit from witches.
Here’s a sick, twisted and fun little meme…How Would You Get Rid Of My Corpse?
Tell me how you’d dispose of my corpse. Then post this in your own journal to find out how other people plan to get rid of YOUR body!
In other news, I finished a short A&E zine for the big anniversary issue. Unfortunately, I did no work on the pro writing job due to excessive laziness today. I’ll do better tomorrow after work.
