taped to the swingset

This week is a bit of a slog: a number of large-scale projects I've been working on for a while have officially hit the Really Boring Part, so I've been trying to distract myself from the boring parts of whatever one is boring me most at any given moment with the boring parts of others. Also, the Hammerhead Flu has hit our family (and we had our flu shots!), and we're all a little irritable, although at least Sterling expresses it more entertainingly than I do. ("Let's go outside!," I say. "No outside!" he declares. "We'll go to the playground!" "No playground!" "You'll get to play there--" "No play!" "Don't you want to have fun?" "No fun!") And the green center "frosting" on the key lime cake we got him yesterday turned out to be not lime but mold. Ew.

Fortunately, my parents are around to take up some of the slack, but really it's just a matter of powering through the extensive dullness of the next week's work & household responsibilities so I can try to dream up something fun to do with a quick payoff.

I did, however, get my first-ever actual royalty check yesterday, and for a project I didn't even think I was going to get royalties on. No complaints there.

Since you are bored, perhaps you would find some interest in using your media connections to help expose the truth of 9/11.
