Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
ComputerLand is Dead Tonight
Wow! incredible how much work I can get done when there are no emails coming in (and especially no emails of meaty items on the bondage list I'm on)...hey... meaty as in intellectual discussion, not meaty as in "look at that piece of ass"!
AND when diaryland is totally totally dead.
AND when I've given up on lurking that progressive lesbian blog where I was hoping for meaty items and comments... much like hoping that Reader's Digest will have fine litterature....
So. I got two pages of comics done, and uploaded. Though the server there was out to lunch til moments ago... there was over 3000 comics updates waiting in a queue last time I looked, and my page still said "FRIDAY". I was hoping readers would know it was the ISP and not me who was sluffing off! (yeah yeah, sloughing off ok ok).
AND I cut paper, measured, taped down and rubbed to transfer all the sketches from the first three chapters of the South Korea contract.
Now that is good. Colors tomorrow.
I contacted my client to see if they want it chapter by chapter or all at once, and oopsalady.... I am suddenly being technologically challenged. Apparently unlike every other client in the past 13 years of my self-employment, they do NOT want me to avail myself of FEDEX to deliver the goods, but expect me to scan them all in myself and upload them to some fancy dancy Korean webfilesharing site. Yikes!
I am hoping to get out of this. Besides it being an extra 3 days work at least.... I don't know how to calibrate my scanner so i can actually see the light washes in sky and skin. Dangedly dang. AND I doubt very much that I have enough memory in my puter for a whole 10 chapters of two books in color, scanned at a high enough dpi for printing. Shitandcaboodles.
So, we'll see what they say to my "oh help me I am a technologically challenged Canadian with a 6 year old Mac" email. dang!
Other than that... I have pledge to write two new comics pages for an "Unsafe for Any Age" comic book to be sold at the Alternative Press Expo in San Fran in April to benefit the Prism Comics website. They are cool people. And it is funny... they used my scathing analysis (someone else called it that, not me!) of their "Safe for Any Age" policy of the last publication I participated in to promote this new book. I will do a new comic called "I Used to Love a Boi", which seems like a logical XXX sequel to the nonadult "I Used to Love a GIrl" that I wrote last time. Hehe.
Well, my tummy is totally grumbling cuz it is late for it's grilled cheese bedtime sandwich... I swear it is grumpier and more demanding than my dog. Grrrrr... hunger hunger... grrrrrr. ... grilled cheese grilled cheese....grrrrr...
So I must be off to feed it.
And if you're one of my diaryland buddies... please update for god's sake... How can I properly procrastinate without you??
3 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
