It seems that my job will suck off and on until January 15th- at which time the company's doing some major internal reorganization. I'm happy about this, as it means I'll be devoting all my time and energy to one client rather than trying to spread myself out over 30. I'm pleased. I'm also pleased that I have 9 work days left before vacation. Wheeee!
I've found myself quite tired of furry politics and posturing lately. Not that this is anything new, but.. I'm at the point where I don't care, I don't want to hear it, and I just walk away. I've found that solution to be far easier than my previous attempts to bring people around to my point of view. I also learned that the vast majority of people that say they want you to be brutally honest with them at all times mean no such thing. Woe unto you if you take them seriously. But anyway. I no longer care. =)
I've got my new "persona" set up, I just have to settle on a new domain name (which I'm -still- wracking my brain over), and pay the fee to have my livejournal renamed. Then I'm all set. I've decided that I'm going to leave VCL alone- I haven't updated there in nearly two years, and I'm trying to build my website into its own gallery. I'm giving serious consideration to applying for an account on YNA... the technical standards aren't as strict, but it also seems much more active in its attempts to help artists improve. Since I don't need a virtual refridgerator for all my scribblings, a gallery to showcase my best work seems pretty ideal.
Speaking of art... I do have quite a bit to scan and upload. Expect sketches and other works in progress soon. I was productive at MFF and in the weeks after.
I'm really looking forward to the holiday season. Christmas has always been a special time of year for me, going back to my childhood. I love the lights, the music, and the general air of festivity. I hate the crowds, the sense of frenzied consumerism. Oh well. I still have a bit of shopping to do... one thing for my brother, one for my mother, and I need to make a final decision on what I'm getting Roho. One of the items I had considered is out now, because it would need to be shipped, and it's too late for that. I'll keep it in mind for birthdays and such next year though. I think I know what I'm going to get, and I can only hope that he'll enjoy it. If not, I'll hang on to the receipts, and we can return it for something else.
I have no real plans for the weekend. I have to work tomorrow (bleh!), and it sounds like Feren will be going up to Madison to visit folks. I'm looking forward to the weekend alone with Roho. I daresay I'd enjoy it alot more if we weren't passing this cold/flu thing between us, but nonetheless, it will be pleasant. Monday, I'm thinking I'll make an appointment to do something different with my hair- I've been pondering it, and if I'm going to do it, I want to do it far enough ahead that traveling won't be a big problem. Sunday, we'll pick up moryssa from the airport and likely subject her to Pirates of the Carribean on the big screen, as the 2nd run theater near our apartment is still playing it. Mmmm. Johnny Depp numminess. :9
And that's it for my update.
