The drawing table got here, is assembled, and in place. It's pretty darn big, but not as huge as I was afraid it might be. Complete with stool it looks like a steal for $150. Scott was going to let me have 'em both for $100, but my conscience said otherwise. (Scott, for those of you who don't know, was my associate at LifeMinders. He wasn't really an assistant, more of a co-worker, but I did select, hire, and train him. Very talented guy, but like me, completely unable to find any work in his field after the dot-com crash.)
NOTE TO EDDIE CANIS: Thank you, my generous friend! But I'm all set. :)
Had a rotten afternoon at work; something that would have been simple, fast, and easy in WordPerfect was a giant, gawdawful headache because I had to use that piece of utter contemptible shit known as Micro$oft Word.
If you work at Micro$oft, you should be personally ashamed of yourself for being associated with that travesty. I am not joking. I hope someone there reads this and is badly hurt. If you cry, good. >:(
Monopoly? Eh. Predatory practices? Tough call. But you put out a crappy piece of work, and there's no excuse for that. Shame!
After the workday and getting the table in place, I am now exhausted, and barely able to keep moving long enough to make this post. But I want to get this out of the way. :) Bedtime will come shortly thereafter.
The comic page is going to be it for SJ this week; I am too busy and way too tired to do anything else. In the morning I get up, ride with Laurie over to Dulles and pick up the rental car, then come back home, pack, pick up HantaMouse, possibly go over the Pla-Za to pick up some new non-repro blue pencils, and head north. Hope to be on the Beltway by 10:30, and 95 N shortly thereafter.
I don't know if I'll have any access at AC, so this may be all you see if me 'til Monday. If so, I hope you all have a great night and an even better weekend.
Unless you work at Micro$oft. You should still be ashamed of yourself.
