Foci and projects for 2010

1. Finish Magdalene.

Magdalene cover; release date April 24, 2011.

2. Make some pretty things.

a) An afghan (Tunisian crochet, the only kind I like) for XX TD.

The beginning of XX TD's coverlet.

b) A Hobbes doll for XY TD.

3. Get better at the ebook formatting thing.

a) Continue self-tutoring in SVG so I can get The Fob Bible completely digitized (text, no problem, but it’s graphics heavy).

b) Give more priority to embedding fonts.

54. Shamelessly rip off RJ Keller’s 2010-in-photos idea.

65. Get my foyer, living room, and dining room decorated and my art up on the walls, including my kitschy matadors ~1950 and my cheap bought-out-of-a-car-trunk-in-a-parking-lot-but-expensively-framed Pissaro.

Pissaro

Matadors

76. Expose my real identity to you all (in case you haven’t figured it out already and no, my real name is not famous in the least bit) and my artsy-fartsy business because I think you might like it. But to do that, I need to work on the super-outdated website.

87. Get The Fob Bible into college curricula, where I think it belongs best.

98. Implement some fun ideas I have for The Proviso et al.

109. Get back on the low-carb wagon, exercise, and load up on the probiotics/coconut oil.

110. Sit down and relax, watch a movie with Dude once a week or so.

There. I fixed it.

    Regarding #8 – if you change The Proviso, I ain’t reading it again.

    Love, Deb

    Heh. Not changing it. Building role-playing games or a Second Life world based on it.

    Role playing maybe…not Second Life (or at least I won’t play it if it’s 2nd life). You are so creative it wears me out just to hear you talk about all the stuff you are doing.

    Wow, I hope we get photos if you make a Hobbes doll.

    Barbara…I’m still thinking about it. I have too much on my plate to really dig into it and figure it out.

    Estara, most definitely. The only reason I really want one is that my son is sooooooo Calvin, it’s spooky.

    Wow, you must have a lot of patience… O.o I bow in awe before you.

    Trust me, my patience is long gone. I just trudge along and do the best that I can, which isn’t saying much most days… (Like today.)

    I think that in the long run that’s all adults can ever do when faced with children, be it their own (my mother, my brother) or the children of others (me as a teacher): the main thing is just not to lie down and say you give up on them (which I’ve heard some parents say to me at school).
