We pulled just about everything off the bed and cleared off some floor space, because none of us is particularly fond of sleeping alone when there could be a slumber party ambiance.

Woke up in the middle of the night fairly cold (we'd left the patio door open a bit) and strangely lonely/not alone.

Everybody's back where we belong, all in one head.

Happy Rabbit Hole Day.

Vigilante Justice! (One-Man Bald Nudity Crusade style.)

Comic Pirate Supervisor has decided that the One-Man Bald Nudity Crusade is generally a farce.

Today's events featured said guy mentioning the respondent who took down his name and threatened to report him to the Attorney General. He said that in the future, he'd take down the number of the person in question to track them down and handle it one-on-one.

... the guy just skeeves me out.

First impression: Wow, that's sweet.

On: Yikes! Sweet! Too sweet!

Drying: ... still sweet. Milk is not a good scent on me. And there's a soapy quality to it on me that says "headache brewing." I think that one is not for me, which means a probable swap. One imp, barely touched. First thought is that Brendan probably knows somebody who wants some, whether they know it now or not. Second thought is that probably imps are as good as currency in a surreal market like a worldcon.

Next sniff: sweet, most of the headache has diffused, but Auric Blends' One Love is a very similar scent and smells a lot better on me.

Work. Been splitting my time between check-in and monitoring. Looks like the check-in position is disappearing. Not too much of a surprise, though it's taking a little longer than I thought it would.

I am tentatively to be on the Dendarii Brewing Company team when the new structure goes live as of the 1st. Team membership is only tentative, as per the draft schedule that Pink Shirt Guy was building, but I like the idea. I might rather be on $ISSUE_SIDE_JOB out of general principle, but I think I prefer the Dendarii Brewing Company as both a client (shh!) and as a survey to be on day in and day out. On the other hand, the theory is that Supervisors (and there is no Phone Goon Pulled to Assist position in the new org chart: there are Managers, Sub-Managers, Supervisors, and Phone Goons) are not on the phones, period.

Today was supposed to be a short shift, but one of the inbounders got stuck on a long survey (one of Those Respondents, and on the Dendarii Brewing Company survey, no less) so we had to wait for her to get out of there before we could finish up everything. I did a rather a lot of cleaning up while waiting for the shift to close down. And editing. And ... yeah. It was one of those stir-crazy days with not enough phone goons to supervise and too many supervisors to go around. 1:5 is a bad ratio.

Left messages with Dawn and amberfox; Dawn has been busy with Mouse-related extracurricular activities, but calls every once in a while. Called V and updated her on Life. hcolleen, remember to put your poem in the group folders, 'k? V wants to see it! I need to put mine in, and the Dave thing.

Called Darkside. Darkside was busy. *pouts* Ah well. :)

Commenced with certain items of the cleaning up. Now have nice large bulk food storage bins for staples like flour & sugar. Glee! Moved the unstable shelves to the closet; moved the stable shelves out of the closet. Will be putting together one of the new sets of stable shelves, and perhaps doing that tonight, though perhaps doing it some other time. Things are all over in that state of limbo, in any case. Chaos, and this is my life.

Still not all caught up on comments from the utter explosion ... was it only last week? Hot damn. Still overwhelmed.

It really does never end. ;) Crossover, et cetera.

So just as I was making ready to hit the shower, the infamous Fuzzy Modem called me, wanting me to check on show times for movies in Fairbanks. Good gods. He has no internet access at home, see. As he said, if he quit smoking, he could get a T-1 line ... and this is the sound of him inhaling. *eyeroll*

Crossover, his comic that I do literary consulting for, is evidently rolling along merrily. Haven't had a chance to glance at it for a few days, but his art is usually good, the plot arc is strong, and one can only hope that his dialog choices remain on the right side of cheesy to make the story sing. In brief, it's the tale of a clash of civilizations from a world of night and technology and a world of day and magic, with more than just two civilizations. It starts out with Night, and some seriously gory infighting.

I'm giving it another week or so to get a picture of how it's coming together before I start putting it through serious shredding for future improvement.

While I'm pimping comics, theferrett has started up something or other that's also in the beginning, getting-to-know-you stages.
