Well. First the day job work day started out full of chaos, and then the day job calmed down to only doing two things at a time and the write job heated up with everyone being manic on Twitter.
Never a dull moment I swear.
I desperately need to get better about posting on here.
Although to be fair I didn't post anywhere much over the weekend at all. Bat Cat got out for the umpteenth time, he has a habit of running out a door when we're not looking. He did his usual trick of staying out for a couple of days and finally came back in yesterday evening, alleviating the incipient panic attack.
We packed that auditorium. Most attended event I hosted at school.
(and no we weren't doing anything squirrelly like charging admission. We just wanted to invite the campus to watch the movie with us. The lecture was super good though).
Once back in college, I wanted to screen V For Vendetta on the projector in the big auditorium, but was told it as a copyright violation unless it was academic. So we got the professor who was teaching a course on revenge literature to open the film with a lecture. 😎

look okay I know it is a time honored tradition to counter sex and gender bigotry with examples from nature but when Christian right religious types say things are "unnatural" they mean "counter to human nature as God created us", not "doesn't exist in animals", so all you're doing is reinforcing their idea that gays and trans are less than human by comparing them to animals
so please don't
And then I went home and did a whole lot of doodling because I didn't have to write because I did it all in the morning and during the day. YASSSSS.
Also my #Huevember drawing ended up being tones of gray-silver so... I don't know if that counts. I'll break out the colored pencils tonight. Though also I'm just happy to be drawing regularly.
Update: So then I poured a large number of nerds down my throat and told Uncle Elf Lord, who is from Georgia, about the whole Southern Gothic Generation Ship project. He is giving me Ideas. This is not helping me calm down.
Okay. Balancing the Southern Gothic mood and atmosphere with the science fiction of a generation ship is going to be a really interesting head trip of a challenge. *rolls up sleeves*
It's so grounded in the earth, in terrestrial things and low tech things, I didn't really appreciate what I was in for until I started reading Southern Gothic right before I started writing.
Welp. Let it never be said I didn't embrace a challenge. #amwriting
Also I have discovered that Huevember is a thing, which may result in me trying to do way too many creative things at once on top of a day job. I'm not entirely sure I care. I need to practice making drawn art too!
Also I've wanted to experiment with watercolors for a while, which seems like a thing people do for Huevember? Art with watercolors? I want to do so much art. But it has to be art I can take with me to work, which means my giant box of colored pencils is a no-go.
My brain is now sluggishly trying to muster up the "DO FIVE THINGS AT ONCE BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL FUN" energy and it's not happening, brain. Not even you have the energy to try to take me in five directions at once. Stop trying to make mania happen, it's not going to happen.
