Long time, no appear!

I've been super busy a work, wrapping up a 6-month contract which ends tomorrow. Maybe after I get my camera back from said ending job I'll make use of my terrifying unemployment and make something pretty.

No promises.

Still?

Tell me something interesting so that I have something bright to look forward to when I emerge, blinking, from my...

Season's Greetings!

I don't have a lot to share personally; mainly I've just been super busy at work, and reminding myself that I still want to be a runner sometimes. That's actually a feat given the weather change. Running in below freezing weather, and running so hard I break a sweat and set a personal speed record? I feel like I

I like seeing your fuchsia head all over my page.  :) Hope you had a nice holiday and get some extra quality time over the weekend.

Something terrible has happened.

I caught up on Doctor Who so that I could watch tonight's special and that means that my worst fear has come true:

I have run out of Doctor Who!

Someone declare a marathon. I am a sad panda.

Hey! So I am all good kinds of exhausted.

Death's Daughter officially got funded! Phew!~

And I ran the Philadelphia Marathon yesterday.

Not my best time ever, but I feel good about the way that I ran, so that counts for something.

My roommate says I look pissed off in this picture. Really I was just tired and it was really bright out, and

The kickstarter for Death's Daughter and the Basket of Kittens ends tomorrow. Please help me spread the word tonight to get some last minute jump-ins happening!

Tomorrow I am running Philadelphia Marathon. Wish me a lot of luck! I am not feeling like I have been eating and drinking enough lately. Oops.

I don't have much internet access here at the hotel here

Good luck with your marathon!!

catdad:

I hope your run is going/has gone well.  I just increased my pledge to $500.  She's now less than $450 from her goal with less than 5 hours to go.

Less than 36 hours left of my friend's kickstarter campaign.

Which means I will get back to writing a book soon and disappear for a while. Aren't you so lucky?

In the meantime, if I haven't talked you into checking out her project? Check out her project!

....So I totally think I went overboard with the creeper eye action in this, but

About five years ago, I was privileged enough to make the acquaintance of an artist named Martha Hull. Quiet and unassuming, in cat-rim glasses and an oversized blazer, she appears to stand on the sassy side of ordinary.

One visit to her underground studio, however, was enough to prove that she is anything but ordinary - even by Portland standards.

Martha's work is colourful, vibrant

I can see why people end up self publishing instead.

And I can see why Amazon has developed a program to allow people to self-publish.

Help!!! Death's Daughter has a mere three days left to gather funding.

If you like the concept, please help share the project via twitter, kickstarter, facebook, etc.

The Kickstarter is more than halfway there, but the funding for these projects start really slow rise up to a whirlwind in the last few days as everyone tries to see if projects are happening before they

Harebrained Schemes Kickstarted their game Shadowrun Returns.  Their goal was $400,000 and they got over $1.8 million.  Yet, the developer still had to take out a loan to finish the project and the finished product ended up being a bit more stripped down than many people were expecting. 
Good luck with your marathon.  I'm wishing you warmer weather, but the weather tends to ignore my wishes most of the time.

olsen:

wow.  I guess that's down to failure to estimate the scope?  Or was it that the cost of prizes so outstripped the kickstarter's worth?

And now, continuing my mission to bring love (and other people's wallets) to my favourite kickstarter campaign....I bring you....

live action reenactments of Death's Daughter and the Basket of Kittens.

...and by live action, I clearly mean, a self portrait and a severe lot of photoshoppery.

When I was offloading the photoshoot I did for this image, I accidentally deleted all the

I've chosen to discontinue my NaNo project this year. I just wasn't feeling it and I'm busy enough with other things, so I didn't really feel like forcing a story out. Maybe it just hasn't fermented long enough.  There's always next year!

catdad:

Feel better soon.
