Second, I spent a great weekend with cottoncandykid, who visited all the way from Peterborough, Ontario. There was many conversations, catching up, watching of animated movies and of course, eating of maple-based pastries. cottoncandykid looked really pretty - last time I saw her she had short hair. Now she's got long flowy locks. I,m really proud of her because she's working hard, achieving her dreams of being a museum curator. And she's getting married soon. In a steampunk-themed wedding. And i'm invited. Yessss.
I'm amazed by the number of people getting engaged and actively planning their weddings around me. I'm afraid all the weddings might wind up on the same dates (everyone almost is thinking of doing it in late august!) I'm going to spend a week running to various weddings. I can feel it. That's the perfect scenario to commit a fashion faux-pas since a few of them are themed. Fortunately, only one of these will be really, really traditional. The rest will be more about family and friends partying. I'm nervous about the traditional one. I don't do well in really strict settings when cake is involved.
Alas, in a negative third point - I'm sick. AGAIN. AGAIN AGAIN AGAIN.
How do I catch these stupid super-colds? And why do they always knock me off my feet? I think i'm going to be a zombie this week.
Finally, Namesake is going really well. We seem to have a good stable 300 readers and good comments all around. I get the feeling that, with a good marketing campaign, we could get a good readership. And I would love that. My dream is to communicate a story, and this one as a ton of potential.
avatarmirai keeps being awesome. She drew me Jack and Warrick. I love seeing the Namesake bunch in someone else's style! Behold!
By the by, miss mirai is currently taking commissions to pay for her expensive education. So if you would love a piece of her art, rush, go to her Deviant art journal, and ask!
Going to go snuggle up with my bottle of Nyquill now, and tea.
