A One-Armed Paperhanger…

In Just Because... on July 6, 2012 at 10:32 pm

I don’t know if any of you have heard the saying “busier than a one-armed paperhanger”; since hanging wallpaper is getting to be a lost art, it may have gone the way of “vaccinated by a phonograph needle”, or “firing on all sixteen cylinders”, or “it’s a doozy” (coming from “Duesenberg”, the upscale auto marque from Auburn, Indiana).

This is the life I’ve gotten myself into lately, trying to juggle live chainsaws blindfolded while tap dancing in a minefield.

That’s what it feels like, at least.

I’m trying to maintain and update three blogs, five websites, an IndieGoGo campaign, clean out our house, acquire some financing for a trip to the Chicago Worldcon (World Science Fiction Convention, for those of you who didn’t know), edit footage of previous costume outings for IndieGoGo updates, trying to coordinate getting both our vehicles working (they went out through no fault of our own, but were screwed up royally by a “mechanic” who worked with the church we’ve been helping out), and trying to have both of us survive the record temperatures (near or over three digits for almost two weeks now) we’ve had.

We live in the North to get away from hot temperatures…

But I digress.  (Not unusual for me…)

The key factor to this entire peroration is the concept of “busy”.  And that we have been.

If, indeed, you can see your way clear, please donate something to the campaign as soon as you can… We both would appreciate it.

Sometime again!
