It's Monday - whaddya want?

First things first: Today is the Royal Birthday of the Squirl! That's right, you heard right, she is officially 21 (plus a couple) years old. Whyn'cha go on over to her place and buy her a drink, or at least wish her a most splendiferous day.

Over here, it's a little hectic today. If you know me, then you know I've waited until absolutely the last minute to prep for my trip to Chicago tomorrow. It shouldn't be that big a deal, since I'm only staying one night, but for girls, even packing for one night is generally a family-size clusterfuck. While I might only be taking enough clothes for overnight, I still have to take the same 50 pounds of makeup that I pack when I travel for weeks at a time. You may ask, is that necessary? For the good of mankind, at least the ones with eyesight, the answer to that is an emphatic You bet your ass it's necessary! Some 41-year-old women may be able to get by with naked faces in public, but I was not blessed with a wash-n-go mug. I'd really hate to scare the band off the stage, so I'll bite the bullet and pack the face paints.

Right now, I'm multitasking with the doing of the laundry, the grading of many papers, the printing out of maps and directions, and the obsessive checking of my train tickets every half hour or so (tomorrow, when I'm waiting for the train, I will be checking my tickets every ten minutes). If I actually had my ticket to the show in my hand (I have to pick it up at the venue box office), I'd be checking that just as often, if not more.

I'm basking in the sound of rain on the roof; it's been storming on and off all day, and I've seen some really spectacular bolts of lightning. I just adore thunderstorms. If I weren't so busy with trip preparation, I'd go to the beach and get some photos. But I suspect there will be many more thunderstorms for me to chase, so I have to let it go and get back to my duties as harsh schoolmarm, knuckle whacker, the mistress of matriculation.

In project news, I'm working up a graphic-novel styled book that will be sold through Cafe Press. It's such a new concept that I don't even have a working title for it yet. I'll try to keep everyone updated on it as the work progresses, and I will definitely let you know when it's ready for sale. No pressure at all, but if you do buy one, it will surely save the pandas from extinction.

It's unlikely I will be around at all tomorrow or Wednesday (not until I get home late Wednesday night), so I will catch all you cats and kittens on the flipside. Gonna get my rockabilly on!

7 of you felt the overwhelming need to say somethin':
