Prayers for Mary Anne

A long time client and friend of mine, Mary Anne, the founder and president of ZAMI, called me tonight about some web updates, this and that, and then she's like, "Oh, I'm having surgery Thursday." For breast cancer. I'm not entirely familiar with all the terminology but it definitely sounds like they'll going to be erring on the side of caution and taking away more than just a bit. She found out in September. Luckily she has a wonderful circle of friends & "sistahs" to support her and in any case, she is one cute lady and will always be. Anyway, I'll be keeping her in my thoughts.

Dug Out, Pt. 3

So my office is CLEAN - even if that means I have 8 boxes of stuff boxed up with sticky notes sitting in a corner waiting to be dealt with. It's so exciting, like I have a whole new room all of a sudden. The room even has an echo now, which it hasn't had for quite some time, it was so filled with junk. Meanwhile I think Luckie is as happy about the change as I am, as she can now find all kinds of spots to lie down. She's so desperate to be with me, but the room was such a mess even a cat couldn't deal with it. Right now she's stretched out on the little pull-out board on the right side of my desk, purring. She also seems to like sitting on top of the air purifier, which I cleaned up (yes, I had to dust the dust remover) and turned on again. She even sits on it when it's on.

And people say nobody reads magazines anymore

After putting up a half dozen books on eBay, I got inspired to post some lots of magazine back issues. I was cleaning out my office and have years' worth of Preservation and The Sun, so I thought, "Why not?" I posted 2 lots of The Sun and 1 of Preservation. Two of the lots already have bids! I am so psyched. I'm going to post other lots after this, then start with individual issues of Preservation, with Table of Contents so people searching on specific terms will find the listings. They're both great magazines and I can't bear to throw them out, so if I can make a bit of PayPal money on them and pass them on to good homes, it's fab.
