    Received a graduation present which allowed me to stock up on art supplies for the next ten years, and I'm currently working my ass off on the almost-forgotten comic I'd started a year ago. Ah, happiness, thy name is Progress.

    My review of Antiquaries and Archaists (By Aldrich and Wallis) is published in the latest Fortean Times
    Also I'm getting plenty of work writing articles for our local arts charity Rural Arts, as well as the usual drawing shapes in GIS and occasionally digging holes in the ground.

    It's the biggest drinking holiday of the year over here in Finland (and I guess the rest of Scandinavia). The rain means less people will drown.

    Finally got round to ordering broadband/phone line for the shop (I'm hoping it's the right package anyway).

    I'm also going to see Dylan Moran do stand up so long as my transport works out.

    My daughter rode a bike on her own for the first time yesterday. Up next... learning to swim. Assuming I have her on a day when the damn sun is out.

    On the vile, but no hugging front, I found a puddle on the floor of the front seat of my car again. I got this "fixed" less than two years ago so I know the cascading failure of parts that will follow as more water gets into the electronics. If you ever meet the bastard who designed the 2002 Ford Focus, please kick him (or her) in the genitals for me. I'll totally buy you a beer. And I'm talking a good one.

    The project website for THAT WEIRD CITY, Those Weird Guys, is up and running. It's an ebook I've talked about before--ten stories about The City, written with my homeboy Aaron Jacobs. Twitter feed and Facebook page are also go.

    ...fuck me, that means I need to get busy.

    @Fauxhammer: I'm all over this when I reach base camp again.

    Though I tragically missed seeing Amanda Palmer on Thursday due to illness, I did manage to go and catch a Reggie Watts show yesterday in Red Hook for FREE!! His live performance was far better than any of the videos I've seen. I went by myself, actually managed to not get there so late I missed it, and took many photographs of the wonderfully industrial areas surrounding. On my walk back, I got confirmation phone call from my first official client of my new madcap service idea.

    Finally launched a website I've been working on since late April - the check is supposedly in the mail.
    Obtained another website building job, only this time without a CMS involved. Looks like someone is getting a new pretty dress next month.

    I spent the weekend at a friend's place in Connecticut. I swam in a lake, ate delicious foods, rode a tiny carousel, built a fire with logs and trash from someone's car, saw a beagle riding on a kayak, saw amazing musicians play on a stage in the backyard, ran around naked wearing a thong & giant horse head and got to snuggle with some of my favourite ladies. Oh and when I left I was driven to the train station in a vintage Mustang.

    Sunday I returned to NYC to run the Dr. Sketchy's NYC branch for our Vampirella session, which went off smashingly. Came home to watch Dr. Who episodes with my friend and then finally get a good long sleep in.

    I am reenergized!

    So, after moving half way down the country from the very urban central Nottingham to the very green surroundings of Surrey, I am not quite settled and still miss everyone I know back in good old Notts. However, the whole point of the move was to improve mine and my boyfriend's quality of life, which it has. I get to have a garden now that I can sit in when the weather decides to be nice.

    I decided to make changes to my eating habits this month as my weight was getting out of control, so far I've lost approximately 6kg, which I'm rather proud of. I might even get to a weight I'm comfortable with again before the end of the year, which would be amazing. Though it's very hard to resist the Krispy Kreme shop in town...

    On a separate note, reading everyone's collective good fortune makes me smile.

    @ Anoxia - now you know why Warren hates this thread. Peoples' enjoyment of life gives him conniptions.

    omething MAY be happening. Had a huge row and it seems like it's a good sign, somehow.

    I've been asked to join a few other guys in running a monthly club for experimental/odd music.

    (Note to musicians and noisemakers on the forum, if you're ever up here in the Helsinki region, let me know. Chances are I could throw a gig or two your way. Not much (if any) pay, but a gig's a gig, right?)

    Today was not a good day. Water started spewing from my ceiling at around 2 PM today, and I spent the next few hours attempting to target and capture the drips as they progressed across my apartment. A few of my hemi-spherical light fixtures ended up completely full of water, and will have to be replaced, along with a whack of painting that will have to be done to my ceiling to cover up the saturated drywall. Many drinks later, I am still paranoid and upset about the whole ordeal.

    However, spending the last hour hanging out in a Turntable room with Neil Freaking Gaiman did much to alleviate that. I am glad I live alone, as any potential roommate would be scared away at the obscene amount of giggling that I did during the entire thing. (Oh man, he totally responded to one of my tweets, too! Ehehehehehehe!)

    Huzzah, actually got paid for a poster design! They took their time and i still have to wait for paypal and my bank to process it and it's not make me quit my day job but I got paid to draw something. Now, need to find another gig and rinse/repeat. I so do need to go out dance all my funk away.

    Having a shit few days, head pounding, guts wrenching, stressed and terrified about my doctor appointments tomorrow and my hearing (for which I've waited 2 years for) on Thursday... I woke to find my amazing artist roommate Yao drew me as I truly am!



    Hooray! I am happy now!
