Which leads me to reveal my next plan: paint the rest of the living room and finally make real curtains. I have one of those giant vertical blinds over one of them and a piece of fabric tacked over the other one. It's been like this also for about a year, mostly because I haven't gone out yet and picked fabric for the curtains. Making them won't be too hard.
Today's weather was less crappy than normal so I dumped a shitload of stuff into the compost. I hope I'm not ruining it by putting in things like cotton stuffing from a moldy cushion, or particles from the bagless vacuum cleaner. I'm good at adding things to the container but not turning it or keeping it damp, so I don't think I'll have usable compost for a very long time.
OK, enough about that. What I really want to talk about now is how awesome it's going to be when I go see Earth and Super Furry Animals in February, FOR FREE because I've had this McMenamins gift card lying around unused for the last five years. Until now.
AND ALSO that I have another DJ thing coming up, it's been official for a couple weeks but I'm going to have a slot at the upcoming Twilight Rummage Sale in February. I get a free table and $20, so I guess I'm a pro now.
The January edition of the rummage sale was last weekend and I had a pretty good time. I spent most of the money I made two days later on my table for the Frankenstein's comic book show that's coming up in March, and my page/publishing cost for Vision Quest #4 that's also on the way. Just doing my part to keep the comix economy alive.
