Green Room - Break Week - Day 12

Your break is coming to an end soon! (for that matter, so is your year!)

Be ready, because we are going to hit the ground running and not really let up until this thing is over!

Until then, have some FREE TOPICS: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/818372.html to keep you in practice!

In "Gary does a commercial" news: TODAY IS THE LAST DAY for the original run of the LJ Idol shirts: http://teespring.com/LJIdol So if you want one of those, once today is over, that window is closed.

There *is* an alternate version of the shirt that will be available for 7 more days - but it's not looking like that will actually reach it's goal. http://teespring.com/LJIdol3 (and yes, there is a Purple Hoodie)

One other piece of news - as I said I would be doing, I am in the process of updating the Patreon page to reflect us moving forward passed Season 8. I've added a "Mini-Season" option where anyone coming in at the $5 level will get an automatic spot +1 (that they can give to a friend). So if becoming a Patron was on your New Year's Resolutions, it's definitely a good time to do it! http://www.patreon.com/user?u=70027


What was the most unexpected GOOD thing to happen to you in 2014? (other than me. That's the obvious one!)

No one is around!

So are YOU doing? :)

As I'm typing this I'm on hold with Important Financial People as to how we're going to pay for our brand spankin' new oil burner :p

Home ownership: The Adventure Of Your Dreams :p

Other than that I'm doing OK :)

...and you?

I'm engaged to someone living that adventure. So I get to see it, and be involved but not with anything in my name.

I'm doing OK. My voice is coming back. Not 100% and still trying to shake this cold off. Other than that, not bad.

You and SO both :p

Apparently my still being on short-term disability screws up a lot of potential payment plans. I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO MY WRIST FOR CRYING OUT LOUD :headdesk:

I've seem to caught some kind of crud too. I'm blaming you :D

It was the break, duh!

Most unexpected good thing: to replace my stolen kindle (and temporarily to replace my stolen laptop) hubby got me an iPad 2 Mini! Woot! My kindle books have already been downloaded to it and I'm going to get a case for it tonight, yay!

Catching up. What a total drag that you're having to slog through this unpleasantness. We had a house break-in once and it was TERRIBLE. Are you dealing with any identity theft? Are your stolen goods being covered by insurance? *hugs*

Our hotel room was broken into when we were on vacation, ugh. They got a bunch of electronics, cameras, and other odds and ends. No identity theft that we are aware of (hubby got his iPad and computers locked down and keychains disconnected). I changed some passwords. We are waiting to hear back from the hotel's insurance, otherwise we will file a claim against our homeowners insurance and probably recoup about half of the loss after the deductible is met. Thanks for asking!

lj idol actually was the most unexpected good thing to happen to me this year! i don't know what that says about my year, but at least i got a lot of writing out of it.... and i got to meet (for various definitions of "meet") some pretty interesting people.

I think the startup and the surprise trip to DC were the best things I got this year. May next year be even better!

Gary, you're making me nervous. But then, you're good at that. :P

I think the most unexpected good thing to happen to me this year was a surprising collaboration between friends. We're going to make some neat things together, and I'm startled and happy and slightly baffled as to how it all happened. Heh.

How about YOU? What was the surprise happy for you?

You *should* be nervous.

It's still a whale. I saw a whale. It was great.

Man, I fucking love whales.

Oh! No, it's not the whale. I expected a whale when I went on a whale watch. I saw a sunfish. I always thought they were kind of creepy and cool as a kid. I wanted to, but I never expected I would see one in real life - I had no idea they even lived around here until one of them poked up out of the water.

I'll probably eat these words soon, but I'm actually looking forward to the break ending. I'm 100% more productive when I have a deadline.
