Here’s an update, in three parts: (and of course the giveaway is last, just to encourage you to step inside my twisting, turning, idea-crazed head at this moment)
1) So as I previously mentioned, I am working on developing a product. It’s keeping me awake at night. Well, that and a teething nine-month-old. I think I’d sleep pretty well if it weren’t for the teething, but once she wakes me up and I try to go back to sleep again, I have to do this visualization thing of a clear desk. I picture this open desk space. First it’s piled with stuff, and I push it all off until the surface is clear. Usually after I do this for a while I can fall asleep. Weird, eh? Anyway, there’s this one part of the product that I haven’t been able to figure out, and a few moments ago when I actually went to Random.org for the first time I saw that there’s sooo much more to play with on the site than just a giveaway number picker. So now I know where I’ll be wasting some time this weekend. And there’s a tool that will totally help me do what I need to do for the product. So so so so exciting.
2) I miss Adrianna. You too? She was feeling better. She had started reading her Google reader again and checking her e-mail (I can tell when she’s awake in the morning because our joint account messages will show up as “read” vs. “unread” and then I know it’s safe to call her) which all make me very happy because for a while there I was pretty worried about how sick she was, and as soon as she was better she and the family up and ran away for a vacation. Now… I’m glad she’s better. And… I’m glad she gets to go on a vacation…. but it feels like a mean trick. Because here I am (sort of) talking to myself again. And I couldn’t get our crafty friend Stacey on the phone yesterday either. I’m totally addicted to craftiness and crafty discussion. Okay, I think you’ve heard enough of this rant. Sorry.
3) And while I was on Random.org getting distracted by fun-ness, I DID pull the Field Notes giveaway winner. Who’s the lucky duck?
And number 53 is… Andrea! Who said:
It looks like Andrea just joined Blogger last month. And already winning the grand prize of the year? She IS a lucky duck. Andrea, e-mail me your mailing address in an e-mail, please? firstname.lastname@example.org
P.S. Ohhhh, no. I did not forget. Here’s the inside of the back cover of a Field Notes journal. Eeeeeendless amusement!
