Oh man.  I was all anxious because some higher-up people from my client suddenly and mysteriously wanted to call me today and I couldn't figure out why.

I get the call, and instead of any of the job-destroying nightmare scenarios my brain came up with, they said they have 600 hours of additional work for me.  Each year for the next 5 years.

Also they want to fly me out to Vegas ASAP to talk about it face to face.

I keep getting offers to lay carpet within my volunteering, they keep paying me so I always say yes!

Yeah, I just used Yuengling. It turned out great. Next time. I'm going to use a little more salt, and a little more sugar, and let it sit at room temperature for a little longer.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

My hair is finally long enough to wear down again! (If it is too short, the curls aren't heavy enough and I look like a chia pet.)

Hit the 10,000 word mark on a new project. That's always a hurdle for me. It gets easier after that.

99% sure going to get the offer for a 3-month freelance project making some serious big boy money.

It's that 1% that has me trying not to hyperventilate from anxiety until I hear for sure.

I may have completely revamped the entire process our office uses for Recoupments and Adjustments, saving us paperwork, headaches, and time lost in research.

I will then be the one in charge of how they work, how to process them, and teach other people how it is done. Its like I'm a professional, guise.

... Hit the 7400 word mark on another new project. Because writing two books at the same time is a smart and good thing to do.

But hey the word count on the other one has still gone up by another 5-6000 so whatever I'm doing is working!

I managed to get one of the last presale tickets for the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig (May 18th to 21st). This will be the first time ever I'm going, and I'm super excited.

I'm not on the picture below, but after the WGT I'll have some pictures to share for sure.  ;D

I was in Leipzig two days ago, now I'm in Prague, so freaking beautiful  :)

The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

So I think I'm actually playing again. What the heck.

Protip: leveling up can be way more fun if you also interact with people.

The band is Ghost BC.

I've been obsessed with them.  As soon as I saw they were going on tour I was like fuck iiiiit.  My dad was in the ICU and not doing well at that point and I was like money be damned --- especially when I saw the concert was the day after my birthday.  Then I told my husband about it and he's like I'll cover it as your bday present.  I'd had the chance to see them in Wisconsin for their first or second album at this really intimate venue and didn't.  I was not gonna make that mistake again.  I think the tickets were fifty each... which is kind of steep but not grotesque.  They're pulling in that Grammy money now.

I saw Ghost tonight, omg incredible.  I wish I knew how to post pics.  Three hours, no opener. - just them kicking ass  There was an intermission.  Costume changes.  The new album is incredible.  Ultimate rinther album.  An Armageddon must listen.  Hnngh.

Pro Memoria

Lucifer, whispering
Silently into your mind
Who walks behind
Who walks behind
Standing tall, invincible
But do not forget your knives
To save your lives
To save your lives

Don't you forget about dying
Don't you forget about your friend death
Don't you forget that you will die

Don’t you vomit savage slurs
Spewed up wickedly
To hide from me
To hide from me
Navigate all alone
On this tempestuous sea
To ride with me
To ride with me

Someone who binged through my entire 750K word serial in 3 days left a comment today. Gave me the warm fuzzies  :-*

I was in Leipzig two days ago, now I'm in Prague, so freaking beautiful  :)

Sweet! My mom's ballet school (back when she still took classes) did regular performances in Prague. I also used to be madly in love with a music student from there  :-[

Must go again someday. Do you have any pictures to share?

If you're not familiar with them, that's kind of their shtick. It's p tongue-in-cheek

In battle we may yet meet again, though all the hosts of Mordor stand between us.
