At our weekly picnic yesterday I told Jen I had sold two lanyards; she looked at me with a quizzical expression, wondering how to respond. "Is that good?" she hesitantly asked. She wasn't sure if she should commiserate or celebrate with me.
I've got to tell you that I'm pretty darn excited to have sold two lanyards, three as of a few minutes ago! That means I get to donate $3 to the non-profit program, Sister Somalia, (Suzie volunteers her time with A Thousand Sister, a non-profit that helps support Sister Somalia) plus that means that I'm a few dollars further away from having to go get a job. Wahoo!
I really like self-employment, especially self-employment subsidized by SU, not to mention naps subsidized by SU.
3-23-08 just finished Jennifer Estep: Karma Girl. Comic-bookish, superhero novel, romance (I didn't realize it was a romance when I checked it out--I definitely prefer mysteries), easy brain-candy read
3-14-08 just finished Laura Lippman: What the Dead Know. Pretty good mystery, nice twist; great brain candy
3-8-08 Ed McBain: The Gutter and the Grave (classic noir mystery from 50s)
