I got an IM from Alyssa:
"I LOVE your Christmas card!"
I replied, "That must be last year's - I haven't sent any yet this year."
That PROVES how much better inventories are now - I'm sure she was doing searches on things like CHRISTMAS. Anyway, last year HUDs were new and I did a falling-snow HUD card. Alyssa's IM made me get busy making another one, but I was rushed and couldn't spend much time on it. <---so it blows
I got inspired and dragged Enjah, Zhan, Salazar, and a brand-new Flay to the gallery to act as judges for the entries. Flay is an excellent person to've met. Now I just have to coordinate their choices. Salazar had an extremely thoughtful response to Pepper's enigmatic triple entry. Those works are full of detail yet look simple and revolve around two areas of fire, one which gives off light.
As I was trying to build last night I met a nice South African who is a painter. I was standing next to kru's shop building a HUD at 2 a.m. after just having bought something in the shop that, when opened, didn't go into Recent but loped to the middle of my Object folder and crossed its tiny arm in recalcitrance. I wondered why that would be, then started working on a CC HUD as I'd been interrupted last time when I tried to work on it. The interruptions are almost always worthwhile, yet it's hard to get things done.
No, I can't use "Busy" mode as people send me contest entries and things and my customers often need help. I don't like building as an alt as then everything is alty. Anyway I like being me. I just also like having 30 seconds or more at a time to do things.
