I am boring. Oh yes. Same old, same old. Overworked as can be, except this time with exciting health drama on top of it! (Wisdom teeth. Ow). And I must be on deadline or else I wouldn't be blog-crastinating, would I?
aponia:

Its actually from Cute overload. I forgot to give credit where it was due, so I will eventually post about my undying love for that site!
(i do have cute goat pictures but not AS cute!)

You have been quiet the busy lady! You're like a rockstar of the craft world!

And wisdom teeth. Ugh. When I had them removed it was long and arduous. They had all been impacted, so there was cutting involved. I had a reaction to the codene/anesthesia/surgery combo and threw up non-stop for the first three days. They took me off of all pain medicines except advil, and then I got dry sockets in all four areas of my mouth. It was about 2 months before I could eat solid foods! Horrible horrible horrible experience!!!!
Just thinking about it makes me queasy. And it seriously put me off to the smell of cloves for months after! (they soak gauze in clove oil before placing them in the sockets)

I'm glad to see you are back. You were missed!

voxless:

If you are who I think you are, I just took a spinning class with you in Columbus a few weeks ago smile Awesome.

Uh huh. Months go by and nothing's changed. Still overworked. Finishing up photos for one of my books, about to sign a contract for another, la la la. Got sick on book tour and still feel run down. Trying to talk myself into taking a break around Christmas but who knows what'll be going on by then? I have this pressing need to...

Not dead yet!

(Me? a Monty Python fan...of course)

What's new? The usual. Work work work. I sound like a broken record, I know, but I was either writing, editing or writing the text and project managing four, count 'em, four books this summer. One's all done, two more will be done on Monday (I couldn't be more excited, let me...

The usual. Work, work, work, more work, with work, and a side of work. Boring, I know, but true. How's everyone's summer going? Me, I look like a lobster who wore a racerback tank to garden in the other day...ouch.
aponia:

Oh its nice to see you back! Yay!!!!

Again, I'm so jealous for my coworkers to get to see you at TNNA while I sat in the homefront staring at the wall. (good lord...am I the only one who knits in the summer?)
I think you need a vacation....and one that doesn't lead to sun exposure young lady! You have that fair complexion that I have, we are not well suited for the sun. Aveeno makes an awesome sunscreen. Maybe I should send you a bottle! wink

My summer is blah with a side of eh. I'm hoping July 4th will kick start festivities. I'm looking for a new job, so I've been doing the interview thing. not very summer-y but it needs to be done nonetheless. You wouldn't happen to know of any yarn companies that are looking for sales reps in Philadelphia, would you? wink

Somebody stop the merry-go-round, I want off! When last I posted, I was editing book #3 and trying desperately to make deadline on book #4. Since then, I've been tapped to project-edit 2 more books, write another one by the end of the summer (no joke) and get on board a few other book projects...

I try not to let it go to my...

Deep, deep, deep in book editing mode right now...sorry no updates! Book #2 (the followup to #1) comes out next month, #3 is being edited and #4 is due at the end of this month. Then yesterday I got asked to work on another book series with crazy deadlines.

(What am I, the crazy deadline lady? Sheesh. I think I'm starting to get...

Check it out -- I'm in this show!

(As a designer, not model...our model is Miss Gothic Massachusetts 2003, though, and she's utterly hot).

Off to Boston in the morning! kiss
aponia:

I didn't even know about the Pittsburgh knitting fest!

Grumble grumble...I miss all the fun stuff.

How have you been?

You can also review my knitting site / shop or my new publishing company. Speaking of, we're always looking for new authors, artists, models, designers...so drop me a line if you're interested.

And finally, if you're feeling really sweet...

Happy birthday, baby! kiss

bittergirl:

Hey everybody! thanks for the birthday wishes -- yes, Aponia, I am kinda taking the day off today! (Well, for me, "taking the day" off usually means more like "taking a few hours off") kiss

After we do the breast cancer run in Toronto on Sunday, 2 October (there's still time to support me, if you like), we will be having a lovely tea party to launch my first book at Lettuce Knit in Kensington Market. Toronto SG'ers are all invited! Final time TBA, but probably sometime around 1:00. It's the first Canadian book-related event and...

Oh, and I almost forgot -- today is Talk Like A Pirate Day -- arrrr!

ARRR!!! ARRR!!! ARRR!!! ARRR!!! ARRR!!! ARRR!!! ARRR!!! ARRR!!! ARRR!!! ARRR!!!

So, a joke:

A pirate walks into a bar and sits down next to a good looking woman. She says, "What do you do?" He says: "I'm a pirate. I kill thousands of government troops, loot treasuries, leave women and children crying in the destroyed ruins of their cities and towns and generally create mayhem."

Karl Rove, sitting in the next seat, says: "You want to run for Congress?"

aponia:

I didn't tell you...awesome book!!!
It was listed in my LYS monthly newsletter. I squealed when I saw it and of course had to show everyone your awesome book!!!

The cartoons are too cute for words! And your author picture is lovely. A very beautiful picture of you.

Congratulations!!!

And thank you for the nice words. They totally don't deserve me!
