Just As I Thought

Where we are

So. Anyway.
Two words I just realized that I use a lot on this blog.
Here’s what’s up.
I think I used to post a lot more political stuff on the blog, I think because I was so outraged and felt so isolated, like I was the only person out there with any common sense. Now that more and more people are waking up to the truth about George W. Bush and his cabal, I don’t feel so alone anymore — frankly, I don’t know anyone who supports the current administration or the current Congress. Thus, I don’t feel the need to blog about every new outrage anymore, because so many others are doing so — my favorite is the acerbic wit of Pesky Apostrophe.
So, what else, then?
I’m working on a bunch of freelance projects — I’m still not a point where the freelance work covers my living expenses, and I still have problems learning how to charge enough to cover everything. Still, a few videos here and there and some books and brochures keep me from completely losing all my design skills while I luxuriate in unemployment.
I’m all googly about the impending release of Sara’s album; today I discovered that it is available for pre-order on Amazon — if you want to buy it, please use the link on her website rather than Amazon, because through the bizarre quirks of the retail system, she (and thus, I) actually loses money on Amazon sales. Press coverage is starting, and the list of radio stations who have added it to their playlist keeps growing every day. I’m so proud of her, happy to be part of it, and thrilled that yet more people will hear her talents. Next month, I’ll be off to Austin for the CD release party! Woo hoo!
Other things on the radar include scraping, sanding, and repainting my garage; and getting ready for my birthday bash in August. I’ve already got at least 10 confirmed guests traveling to San Jose, and I’m starting to deal with the logistics of making sure everyone is picked up at the airport, fed, and housed and has a great time.
And that’s the way it is, May 22, 2006.
