Paper finished in good…

Paper finished in good order yesterday. Huzzah! Now I don't think about it until grades come in at least...

I wasn't feeling so good yesterday afternoon; kinda lazed about in front of the tv, desultorily reading Mad Ship in the intervals. But I picked myself up eventually, dressed up, and went out to the department Xmas party. Good fun at Oasis Cafe. Stayed there 'til 11 or so -- nice. Came home and Kev was watching Almost Famous on tv, so I ended up staying up another hour and watching it with him. Cute movie.

Slept pretty much like a log. Have had a slow morning, drinking tea out of my new Frank Wu mug, which looks amazing! It arrived yesterday and it's just gorgeous. I'm sort of stunned by how sharp and professional it looks. I want another! I need to figure out which artist to do next. The nicest thing about working with Frank was how quick and professional he was...

I'm still bouncing up and down about Chris's story making it into YBFH. It's a charming story, one I'm proud to have published, and it just feels like such an accomplishment. I'll probably be buzzing about that for days at least...

And the fund drive is continuing steadily, which is also lovely. We're now up to 15 donors and $282 -- not bad for nine days. I do wish I'd been prompter and started it December 1st, as originally planned. Oh well...if wishes were horses, etc. I'm not sure if we'll make it to a thousand, but if we break $500, and say, 25 new donors, I'll consider the drive a solid success. Fingers crossed.

I'm gonna go have some curry and read Mad Ship some more; today's a lazy day of doing bits and bobs of stuff (groceries, Xmas presents and cards, etc.) -- a little break before I dive into the last big paper. Mellow, that's the plan. I can do mellow. Sure I can.
