why you haven't seen me lately


I keep a pad of paper in front of my computer at all times. I like lists, you see. Here's today's sheet of paper, which may give you a clue as to the state of my mind for the last week or so (you may have to click the image to get a readable view, sorry).

My publication gets sent out to ONR (that's the Office of Naval Research for you... uh... landlubbers) for review and release on Monday. As soon as it comes back, it gets shipped off to the printers and I wash my hands of it.

This is why I have been absent for the last week or so, and why I will continue to be absent until my bouncing baby book is at the printers. I have spent virtually every waking hour hip-deep in layout, proofs, PDFs, hyphenation, submarines, welding, and indexes. It's a quagmire. So I am unable to update you as to the state of our roof (falling apart), our relationship (we only see each other on Sundays), our finances (no new kitchen), or our future plans (I can't see past the print date anyway).

But I will. After our printer's kill date of October 27th, I will.

I just took a pic yesterday of my "to do" list planning to a similar entry. You beat me to the punch!

We need some PDAs or something...maybe some company will see this and spot you one!

p.s. 'quagmire' is a great word... it just is.

You poor dear. Would you like us to bring over a casserole?

BTW, have you checked out Penguin's yet? My neighbor owns it.

Renfield --

I think we've managed to come through the worst of it, no casseroles should be needed. ;) But I'll let you know.

I haven't checked out Penguin's -- where is it?

Renfield said...

We'll keep the tuna on standy-by. ;-)


Penguin's is across the street from the Mars on Maiden Choice Lane.
