CARNIVALIA

My Freakshow


January 23rd, 2008

Catching Up @ 10:08 am

It's been too long, I know, but now I am trying to get back in the habit of updating this journal. As you all might imagine, having taken over the retail store right before Xmas was exhausting. Storm and I are finally able to catch our breaths somewhat.

Concerning the store all is swell right now. Did a sidewalk wash out front the other day to attract customers, mixing some ammonia/sugar/cinnamon and sweeping towards the door, and sure enough my sales boomed soon after.

I'm barely keeping up with my production of talkingboards (and haven't had any time to design anything new). I think it may be time for me to offer manufactured versions of my better boards, so if anyone has some tips for finding a manufacturer I'd appreciate it muchly. I want to keep doing some handmade ones, but only as limited editions.

Decided that in the same manner I like my coffee black I'm gonna stick to Bourbon for my boozing (good red wine being the exception). Later, when I'm filling out my absentee ballot, I'm gonna see about making a drinking game out of it, perhaps turning my wrist whenever a candidate claims to be for change. Feel free to help me out with this folks.

In a couple of weeks Storm and I are going to Tuscon for the gem show. Five days we'll be there; I'm excited but somewhat reluctant to leave the Bay Area for that long. Then later in Feb we will be at Pantheacon, so busy month ahead. I'll try to find time to keep this journal active.

My liver is cringing in sympathy at the mere thought.

glad to see the store is doing so well! Yes, Xmas is retail is a huge amount of hard work - speaking as someone who works in a kind of witchcraft store.

Congrats on the store!

Hopefully I'll get to run into you at Pcon this year, I'm so ready for it to happen now.

Does this mean you're accepting donations of Bourbon or that you want help with choosing a candidate? ;)

(hint: I'm broke)

I wanted folk to help me come up with reasons to take a swig, however I should point out that my vote is soundly for sale should anyone wish to send a bottle my way.

Ditto, Kiddo. We will be staying at the hotel this year, so I'll get to see what all goes on after dark.

Good to hear things are going well! I've been meaning to come visit and I will soon. I'll probably bring others with me.
