Oh Wait, I’m Supposed to CHECK my E-mail, Aren’t I?

So, I was planning on posting an update on Operation Get Shit Done, when I realised that I haven’t checked my SAC-Flavored e-mail in… well… for-EVAR.

So I checked it and found this:

Didja see didja see? I’m in there in the middle! *hums her little diddy* The creativity of children never ceaces to amaze me, she’s got a cute little something to say about every kitten in those pictures! Quite entertaining, thank you Mr. Jones 😀

and me… tell each other fairy tales and we stare at the beautiful women, she’s lookin’ at you

oh no no she’s lookin’ at m—

*ahem* Take me to karaoke and you bet your britches I’ll be singin’ that.

ANY-hoo, I don’t have any WoW-related updates, apart from it’s Tuesday and you probably can’t log on.

Operation Get Shit Done is going pretty well, actually. It’s continued presence in my life after more than a week is nothing short of a miracle, so I’m not going to beat myself up about the root beer bottles on my computer desk or the laundry still in the dryer, or the fact that my kombucha seems to have developed a mold 😦

Instead I’ll be all excited about dishes getting done and the grand re-launching of my online comic!

YAAAAAAAAAAY! /throw confetti

Now, here’s where my e-mail comes into play. I’ve re-launched my comic very aaaah, candidly. It’s completely Non-WoW-related, a story that has been evolving since 2004-ish. (half-dragon elf pirates has turned into post-apocalyptic tribal aliens with magic)

Anyway, I’ve only got the cover, but if you really want to be able to keep an eye on it you’ll have to e-mail me asking for the link. (e-mail can be found in my ‘about’ page)

On another note, does anyone know how to set up e-mail forwarding with g-mail, so something like this doesn’t happen again? I run 3 different e-mail addresses and sometimes forget to check the one for this site. Figured it out, yay. You may now all rest assured that I will get (and respond to) your e-mails in a timely manner 🙂


This has been a Secret Agent Cat Public Service Announcement, you may now resume ripping faces. 😉


Because I Love More Than WoW

Ok, stole this shamelessly from Mend Pet, ’cause I can, and ’cause she steals my words >_>

30 – Though I always was an odd bird and once spent an entire day gleaning incredulous glances from my fellow students in Jr High for lugging around a giant hard-cover copy of the Pearls of Lutra.

As long as we’re talking about books, I reccomend anything from Mercedes Lackey and Anne McCaffrey as well. Isaac Asimov and Roger Zelazny, Piers Anthony, Robert Jordan, Dean Koontz… I could go on but I’d need to consult my library.

Two double posts in two days? I know, what am I thinking?
