Ok - how in the hell does this twitter thing work?!!?!?!

It seems to me you have to spend an awful lot of time on there saying/commenting on random things just to get anything out of it!

Crap! Today is my first day of summer, and I had huge plans for stuff I'd get done! However, instead I turned off my 9 o'clock alarm in my sleep, and slept until about... 12:15. AWESOME. Not. lol

The appropriate response when I tell you my grandma is having a brain biospy isn't, "I really think the end times are here and God is taking the ones he loves to heaven." What is WRONG with you? You can be so obtuse.

Lots of companies who use Twitter will only make a half a dozen posts a week. It's not that hard to keep up with. You don't have to tweet at all, you can just follow a bunch of publishers, authors, fellow illustrators. It's a good way to catch up on the buzz of your industry.

That's more of a long shot, though. However, I think anyone looking for work should get going with Facebook or LinkedIn, if they're not already. Because people can and do network on those.
I love it when someone puts their dog in their backyard for hours on end tied to a short rope. The dog has done nothing but bark for three d@mn straight hours.


Holy mercy. I just ate WAY too much tuna noodle casserole.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Ok, one more little rant-y post today...

A few minutes ago, I got out of the shower, and was putting leave-in conditioner in my hair... I had recently gotten a sample bottle of Bio Silk Silk Therapy from something. It was a tiny bottle, but you only need a little bit anyway. I went to grab the bottle to put some in my hair, only to find that at some point I forgot to screw the cap back on, and it was on its side, with the entire contents on my dresser. Now I have to actually BUY a bottle of it.

Do not want!!

Local branch of the library, you know I love you, right? And that I support you in almost every instance? I think you do.

That's why I'm a bit miffed that you cancelled my hold on a book, despite closing for the Maple Fest last week. The full allotment of pick-up time was denied me, and yet you acted with alacrity.

Do I feel punished? A bit. Am I hurt? Some. Will I move to extend the pick-up dates if I'm appointed to the board? Yes. Yes, I will.

I really hope we can reconcile soon. It pains me to be in conflict with you.

Sincerely,

I thought I was doing so well with sticking to the 2 chapters a week, so I stay with the blog, but today I just want to get lost in the book.

AHHHHH I want to kick my car! It's seriously one thing after another, and what seems like a small repair is now costing nearly $500. I DO NOT recommend ever buying a VW!! FML

ETA: Apparently this part is so difficult to install on my particular car, it's going to take an extra hour...make that $600 total. Eff

I hate leaf blowers. HATE them. They should be banned in densely populated areas.

Someone just crashed into the front door, not realizing it was locked. I know I'm mean, but it.was.funny.

I once saw a guy walk right into some low-hanging scaffolding. The teenagers nearby went insane with laughter. It was like a Fawlty Towers routine.
Must be time to have another repeat of the jerkoffs-who-laugh-when-other-people-get-hurt thread.
