Contradiction in Terms
You say to-may-toe; I say toh-mah-tah. Deal with it.

Today is Trivia Day.

So let us all be trivial!

I should have known that my Happy Holiday Hiatus did not mean that my clients were easing off on their usual rush-rush schedule; rather, they were just saving it all up to unload in one big shitstorm once the season was over. There's so much of it that it's challenging just trying to figure out the order in which I should accomplish the various tasks. And to make matters worse, most of them are just revisions of prior stuff, which means that profit from all this work will be minimal.

So it looks like I will be maintaining blog silence for this week at least, in between frantic bouts of copywriting, and almost equally frantic sessions of playing my new PC game, Vampire the Masquerade--Bloodlines. (Which Dean bought for me, by the way; it's funny how he thinks I totally spoiled him on his birthday when he goes around spoiling me alll the time!)

If I had any sense, I would do something less stressful for a breather between tasks, but nooo, I just have to spend my time trying not to be unreasonably terrified as my fictional character battles ghosts, werewolves, and other vamps, while playing undead detective as I puzzle my way through various mysteries that plague our monstrous little community. But come on, where else do you get say, "Dammit, now I have to eat someone"?

Does anyone else remember this? "Sleep all day, party all night. It's fun being a vampire." Careful, darlings--you'll be showing your age!

Aprendamos el Espanol!
These are two of the most important sentences to learn when traveling in another country...

Where is the bathroom? = Donde estan los servicios? (don-deh-ess-tan-los-sair-veeth-yos)

Do you mind if I smoke? = Le importa que fume? (leh-eem-por-tah-keh-foo-meh)

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
