Otis elevator maintenance man. Please insert all obvious puns about getting up in the world, getting the shaft, etc. He was pretty darn scenic for a silverside.(gray temples)
My Publisher just told me that we have sold enough copies of Sanna, Sorceress Apprentice to make it worth our while to put out Sanna and the Dragons! Woohoo! Thank you, thank you, you darling friends!! Now I have to hammer down on the rewrite. I have over 500 exclamation points in the book and they will accept no more than 100. But - but - I LOVE my excalamation points! How can I excise 400 of them? Agony!!!
Well, ya gotta do what ya gottta do. sigh.
Life in the Mariot Residence Inn continues. The kitties are getting used to the new place. Every day I rejoice in the comfort and beauty of our suite. There are trees all over and even though it's right next to the train tracks and the freeway, there is no noise or stink. I'll get photos today. Today, by the by, is going to be sunny! Woohooo!
I'm working a 9 hour day today. Then Friday will be five hours and I will pack my traps and drift away. I've been making more really stupid mistakes lately, and I came to the conclusion that I was doing more harm than good. So I will be leaving the work force a few years early. Maybe I'll find something else. Maybe I'll just work harder on the writing. Maybe a comet will hit the earth tonight. Life is uncertain. Eat desert first.
I have loved the job in the testing center, and taken a lot of pride in good service and being able to make things easier for folks with test anxiety. It's great fun to see all the young people and watch their progress through the years, but really, it's time I moved on. I don't know who they will get to take GED tests to the jail, though. Everyone else is so nervous about the thought. We shall see.
