OMG, I am killing the to-do list this week. I am quite excited about it. I would be even more excited if I could finally wrap up this audio editing business! I have about 10-20 minutes of finished audio left, which should probably equate to at least 6-8 hours of editing work. Yes, it does take that long. I think the worst part about it is that I can’t listen to music while I’m doing it. Music makes everything better.
But it will be done soon. Soon!
I’m lucky that I’ve had time at all. This last month has been bonkers. We got a new roof put on the house due to storm damage, a newish truck because the old one was dying. My daughter moved out. She’s 20, so it’s not like she ran away or anything. I miss her, despite the fact that she’s right down the street. The location makes it better. She took Merlin, though, because he belongs to her. That makes it slightly worse. I miss him, too.
There is a small silver lining. We’re setting up a guest room/office the spare bedroom. Our “office” has always been a corner of the bedroom, so that is pretty cool.
On a somewhat unrelated note, I’ve been reading Locke and Key, which is a comic book series written by Joe Hill, aka son of Stephen King. It’s really good stuff so far. It reminds me a little of The Haunting of Hill House
Also awesome and actually by Stephen King – the new IT movie. I never saw the original or read the book, so I can’t offer a comparison. I thought Bill Skarsgård was amazing. I watched him in Hemlock Grove, which I liked well enough, but I think his performance as Pennywise really showed he well can act.
Now, please enjoy this picture of Bleu. Adorable while asleep. A terror while awake.
