Frost! in mid-April! The natural order has been overturned. There should not be frost on the ground, around here, in mid-April. It's just wrong!

I know that it's been more than a week since my last post. I've just been so tired. Even this isn't a real post. It's just an interjection.

Just finishing Witch Hunter game. I am soo tired. But it was fun. I'm at Roundcon in Columbia, SC.

Reading Witch Hunter book. Gaming all weekend, no time to read. Working on April challenge, and almost figured out how to do ends for a hen & chicks bookmark. Almost. I did finish one of Kersti's on Thursday.

clothes: Tricon 2006 t-shirt & black jeans & tatted jewelry (that I made) yesterday. Today it was black jeans, Celtic knot jewelry, Lost Colony t-shirt & two new Celtic knot rings, one with a red stone.

Network outages are so frustrating
I keep 'finally, I can get some work.., no there it goes again.'
Network outages are so frustrating
I keep going: 'finally, I can get some work.., no there it goes again.' So I can little to nothing done because almost everything I do is on a computer, on the network in fact. I am stymied.

books: Finished Politics Is Murder & started Death on the Cliff Walk. Now that I've read Politics, which was a pretty good mystery by the way, I'm trying to decide what to do with it. I'll probably give it away. I have seen it being offered for $15 online but do I know anyone who's willing to buy it? I'm also reading, more thoroughly, the Witch Hunter rulebook.

I got most of my packing done last night. I will have to finish up as soon as I get home. My last bit of laundry wasn't quite ready by the time that I had to head to bed.

clothes: black half-boots, slacks & belt; grey shirt with black & white leaves and flowers, short-sleeved black crochet vest/sweater; moonstone jewelry & braided (& wet) hair.

Nothing much happening.
I missed the bus this morning. So I was late to work, not much but some.
Spent about half an hour writing cards with a group of students for kids in the Children's Ward at the hospital. I was definitely the oldest person there. I did get a couple compliments about my cards. I have to admit that two of them turned out really well. It's so hard to think about what to write. Whoever gets the card is in the hospital due to a serious, potentially fatal illness. That really limits what you can, appropriately, say.

: Finished Ghost of a Chance and reading Politics Is Murder (c. 1947) by Edwin Lanham. Ghost is an interesting novel. It's quasi-romance and it's very different. It's in the same world/setting as the Aisling Grey books. Easily explained because Kate Marsh is the pen name of Katie McAllister.

Still screwing up at work.

clothes: black beaded slippers & socks, black slacks & belt & polo, flower band, hematite band, hematite band, & labradorite pendant.

dream: I don't remember much, one thing was a bus problem such that my usual bus was stuck & would be about 2 hours later than normal (neat trick considering the route is about an hour round trip). After that I was trying to sleep on the floor but with only one sheet, so the rough carpet kept irritating me. When the alarm went off I was quite sharp about declaring that I was tired and I was not going to work.

no tatting and only Jadeclaw re: books.

I think I'm getting depressed again. I need to read something, perhaps.

clothes: black slacks, cream turtleneck, red vest (open because it's unexpectedly warm), half-boots, & dragon jewelry
