You knew I couldn’t stay…

You knew I couldn't stay in a bad mood, right? The day has gotten much better. First, I managed to finish off one small project -- getting the Cafe Press store set up with the "Fiddler" items. T-shirts, mugs, mousepads, tote bags. Very cool, and thanks to Lucy Snyder for helping with the graphics. We should have one up for "Ovigonopods of Love" soon. I really do hope to have a full line of mugs eventually. :-) (Not that I need more mugs -- I think I have about twenty now. How many mugs does one woman need?) I'm particularly pleased to have this store up because I'm utterly in love with this image. I don't know why -- it really speaks to me. And Shelton Bryant, the artist, has agreed to sell me the original small oil for only $75...which is out of my price range right now, but maybe in a little bit? Fingers crossed.

I have to be a little careful with money right now because some money I expected won't be coming in. Did I tell you guys that a Canadian film company wanted to do a tv version of "Seven Cups of Water", as part of an erotic series they're doing? It wasn't going to be a lot of money, but some, and it just seemed so cool -- I was really excited. Sadly, they called this morning and told me that they were very sorry, but had to withdraw their offer -- it seems they get most of their funding from the Canadian governement, and they'd just been informed that they had to use exclusively Canadian authors. Sigh. They were pretty disappointed; mine was their favorite story. Seems a shame, given that it would have provided work for Canadian actresses... ah well. Maybe someday, if they get money from another source. Or another company might pick it up. Bummer.

But all bummers today are erased by some marvelous news. I just got a phone call from Karen! She and Par and Mighty Tot are on the road...and headed this way! They'll be arriving in Salt Lake around 8ish -- I'll be back from class around 9, and they're going to spend the night! How cool is that? So very astonishingly cool that I'm going to have a hard time concentrating on work for the rest of the afternoon. But I'll try...

Karen's coming! Karen's coming!

Bounce bounce bounce bounce....
