A busy day at work - I finished and printed up all the Elders' Dinner invitations, made four different versions of 2-part tickets for the four showings of Christmas in the Clouds to be shown in the school gymnasium, worked with Cheyenne and Sabra making their cartoon characters, shoved a few papers around, worked with 5th grade inside the school virtual world. In that world (WaHeLut2) the children were working very well with the Cornell people, and when Scott to me to get out of his valley ("Please leave. Get out.") I turned half my attention to my printer as it hasn't been serviced so I have to feed cardstock into it sheet by sheet. I can use the lower tray for paper (although that tray is too small to be useful for the yearbook) but cardstock uses the top tray. I saw Alex and Tiff and Montrose and Mr. Yazzie, and talked to Brenda and sallee and Denise on the phone. The entire time I was there I was jumping up and down to shove a page in the printer, go back to Photoshop, shove a page, go back to the virtual world, etc. Well, except after the children left and Alex came in and I made HIM stand there and feed paper while I kept working. It all got finished, which was great.
Came home, went into Second Life, and wound up playing bumper boats with Enjah. Bumper boats are like bumper cars on the water except they have cannons. One fires at one's opponents, and at a certain number of hits the boat sinks. It was rather crazed trying to drive and shoot with my left hand - I was trying to perfect a way to move whilst shooting, but it really doesn't work. I had done it once before, last year, but I was alone, so it didn't actually help (I hadn't remembered how the boats worked anyway). We got shot at for a while when we were standing on the shore, by a fellow trying to inspire us to engage him in battle, I think.
