Waning Moon
Pluto Retrograde
Rainy and cool

I wrote this last night and scheduled it to post because I signed up to take a Mac workshop in Stamford, CT that starts at 8:30 in the morning. Am I nuts? Rhetorical question. But it’s a Mobile Me workshop, and i just look at the program and go WTF? so It’s necessary. And I didn’t see it scheduled in White Plains. So I’m driving to another damned state to take it.

I finally finished the Belmont article and sent it off. I had facts to check and vet research to perform before I could send it off with a clear conscience.

Spent way too much time on Twitter, caught up on email, worked on client projects, worked on interview stuff, and, most importantly, printed postcards. The HEX BREAKER postcard didn’t print the way I wanted, so I had to adjust the design. I also had to figure out how to feed the paper. Then, the Canon Pixma 860,which is supposed to be this kickass printer, went rogue — it stared printing documents that weren’t in the cue — ON the postcard paper,wasting both paper and ink. Then it started eating the paper. Then it lied to me about the ink levels. I was a fit to be tied and sent QUITE the email to Canon. They’ve always been awesome, and the print quality on this printer is outstanding, but it doesn’t do as it’s told.

It can bite me, okay? Well, it sort of did

We finally reached a truce.

The postcards, both for HEX BREAKER and DIXIE DUST look fantastic. But I have to go buy more ink, like, today.

But I can send the HEX BREAKER postcards out and stat the DIXIE DUST mailing.

That was basically my day.

Hopefully, I had a good morning on the Matty book, even though I had to get up earlier than the cats to get it done before I left for class.

When I get back, I have to go the post office, the bank, and get back to the page. I have to finish a client project, too. I have no idea when I’ll get online today.

Enjoy your day. And hop over to A Biblio Paradise to read the review of Kim Smith’s mystery, AVENGING ANGEL.

  1. Ooo. Sounds as though something isn’t in synch on your printer. Some communication issues between computer program and machine? Weird.

    Had a similar day to yours yesterday. No, nothing broke or acted odd (beyond the humans in the house), but the day went from productive to interruptive in mere seconds. I plan my day in my head. When someone upsets that plan, I’m usually able to recover easily, but when several someones upset it, I get annoyed and can’t get back to it. Still, I managed to get back to my manuscript, which is good. I’m at a sticking point, but I’m going to write through it and see what happens.

  2. It’s just technology’s final attempt to try and annoy you before it finally succumbs! Nice try, but wasted 🙂

    Hope you have a great time at the course!

  3. YOU enjoy your day! Sorry about the rogue printer! I’ve actually had that happen, too. It always seems to happen when you have the EXPENSIVE cardstock or paper in…

    😉

  4. I hope you had a safe and educational trip to your workshop!

  5. I with you regarding Twitter. It’s a time sucker. 🙂

    Hope you enjoyed the workshop.
