Dammit Dammit Dammit!

People who know us know that H is a wicked talented graphic designer. I love his work, but obvs I’m biased. He’s made many cards and gifts for people–lots of posters, printed scripts with cool covers, etc. He designs all my marketing stuff, and created the logos for Under the Bed magazine and The Horror Within, among other things. He’s designed some awesome book covers and more marketing stuff for friends, family, and clients. I’d been pestering him to put…

Eventually, they told me everything was fine. It wasn’t. I notice too that Photobucket deleted my screencaps of my Emails with Facebook people. I presume they’re in cahoots. Days later, I was again…

Busy

I haven’t posted at all in February yet. So I feel like I should even though I don’t have much to say. Oh wait, there is one thing. If you’re voting for Hillary Clinton solely because you think “it’s about time for a woman president,” you should shut your face.
