Whyyyyyyy

Why am I sooooo uninspired?! But at least my cats are cute, and loveable :)
Also it's gotten cold, really cold and the wind is absolutely howling outside. We are supposed to have freezing rain, so I sent Jeanne-Annette home and told her to not come back to work until Monday. She brings her youngest to work, and I don't want her and Baby Sebastian driving over icy roads on MY account!
So back to it being cold and my cats being loveable. I have a sweet, purring Cassira on my lap right now. And my legs are going to sleep because she is 22 lbs :(

Starting Over

So, I just scrapped the painting I was working on all last and this week, It wasn't working and all my attempts to 'save' it weren't working either. So, onto the redo.
I guess, since I just finished re-watching AoT (yep, I'm pathetic) and can't think of any other anime to watch, I guess I'll watch (listen actually since this is while I work) some thought-provoking documentaries instead. Gah, I want to be DONE with this project!!!!! :/

Izumi Con

So it feels really, really weird doing a show in my hometown. We dropped off all the stuff and set up the display last night. It s pretty good sized hotel show with several vendors we recognize from other shows. And it feels just like I'm at a far away convention when we are in the room setting up and carting stuff back and forth from the van, except we came home and slept in out own bed and ate leftovers instead of expensive room service, and played with our cats. The Dealer's hall opens in a few hours, so I am sitting her typing away while Domino and Gozer are madly chasing after one of Steven's gaming dice which they are batting allllll over the Dining Room floor.
It feels surreal.
Steven and I also went to see Ender's Game last night, and I LOVED it. Such good storytelling, and the visual effects were beautiful. It was just a gorgeous, wonderful film. It's been over a decade since I read the book so I wasn't sitting there in the movie theatre thinking...'this, this, this and this are different, this part was cut out, this part has been added...., like my poor husband who nearly has the book memorized I think.
Last year I read the Hunger Games right before the movie came out and I do think it lessened my enjoyment of the film. So since it's been over a year since I read Catching Fire, I think I'll enjoy the movie better.
So we need to take another table to Izumi Con when we go complete our setup in a few hours. And I don't want to forget my camera, since I want to photograph lots of cosplayers again, which is really my favorite part of going to a convention nowadays!

Quality Control

Steven bought me a Pumpkin pie from Whole Foods, when I sent him shopping today. And when I got up I saw a piece had been cut out.
"I 'quality controlled' your pumpkin pie" he said. "It was good." When I stop working for my 'lunch' break at 6 am or so, I'll test it for myself. Right now I am stuffed full of soup and crackers.
Work proceeds on Book 3 of the Zarryiostrom: Marionette and I will definitely make my deadline! Yay!

So every once in a while...

...it hits me that she is really gone and not coming back. My sisters may start to boycott my house if I keep making them cry.

Back Home from Comic Con

...after a 20-something hour drive. And even after a nap, I am still tired. And hungry, and of course there is nothing to eat in the house. I've been posting about comic con on my FB, so be sure to check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/nenethomas

Eat first then sign. Sign, sign, sign like the wind. I have a zillion prints for San Diego Comic Con that need to be signed and numbered so the girls can sleeve them. But first, eat, or I might fall back asleep....
Oh yeah, and get Phaedron piece I previewed on my FB yesterday to "first done" today.

Busy busy busy......

I hate re-doing things......

.....but that is what I'm doing. Some of the graphics in Powerborn need to be re-done, so I'm re-doing them....yay.....
But we are very close to having a paperback of Powerborn, so YAY!

Dinner

Steven is making spaghetti. It's cooking away in the crockpot and it smells SO good!
I'm starving, really really starving, but I don't want to "spoil my dinner". And I would too, and regret it.
I've got two pieces that are just 'this close' to being finished, but I am having a serious lack of motivation. I napped all afternoon, and I am really intending to work like a fiend this evening.
Intentions........
We'll see....
