Well! I have a new futon couch/bed. The sales lady talked me into an upgrade so it's the super-delux extra-thick nicest one! The kind boys from City Mattress delivered it yesterday. It's shiny. Unfortunately it's also black...and my cat loves it. Break out the pet-hair-tape-roller-thingy, sez I.
Because everything in this house is just an elaborate cat-toy. I should know that by now.
When I was away at Pennsic I got a chance to catch up with friends. It was SO nice...exactly what I was craving. Greg couldn't stay with me the whole week, and I thought I'd be terribly alone, but I had friends with me every minute and it was really nice! Also, a pleasant surprise: I'm not socially inept! Apparently! Hmm! Everyone kept telling me how much fun they were having, and how glad they were that my merchant space was a pleasant oasis of friendly normal in a sea of goofy. It went right to my head.
So I'm making an effort to be friendlier on a daily basis, instead of just once a year. So far it's going very well.
Yesterday Char and I went back to that long lovely trail in Canada (I get a secret kick out of producing the passports at the border...because the border guards on the US side can be real pills but there is no argument when the little blue books come out. "The Power of PASSPORTS compell you!!"). We went a lot further than we usually go, and my legs are sort of killing me today. We're going to do it again today though, because summer vacation will soon be over and these half-day bike trips will only be a weekend thing once school starts.
My sister is in town but I've only seen her once. She's very busy. :-(
I'm working on a Sess + Rin,Naraku + Kanna piece of fanart. The IY manga dictates that I must hurry, as poor little Rin may be going the way of the dodo soon (oh but I really hope not!!). I'm arranging them in a yin/yang kind of pose, with the guys' hair being the dark and light fields and the little girls' faces being the contrasting color "dots"...can you see it? I have to draw it so it makes sense, probably.
And that's all I've got. Thunderstorms today maybe, I hope.
