Body: We are tired and do not want to brain.
Brain: ...we didn't eat lunch. Or, really breakfast - whole wheat toast doesn't count if there was no protein. Go make something.
Body: No. Tired.
Brain: You either have to get up and make something, or you're going to nap the rest of the afternoon and then hate yourself because work doesn't get done.
Body: ...you and your fucking logic.
That was Friday. I did eventually eat, and get some work done, because I adult like that. Mainly working on a client manuscript, plus some odds and ends of production matter and email clearing. And laundry and paperwork, because Adulting.
Saturday night, I went out to West Seattle to volunteer with The Cabiri's "dessert cabaret" presentation of DEAD GODS
. This ended up meaning playing barback during the intermissions (as one of the two people with Washington State liquor-handling licenses, the other being a volunteer who was an Actual Bartender), and helping with set-up/break down. An interesting way to spend Halloween (the show was properly atmospheric, and many audience members came in costume), and the trip home was enlivened by sharing a car with fellow volunteers and staff of like fannish minds.
(you know you're among Your People when you say "my cat Castiel" and the multiple reaction is "you named your cat Cas?")
For those who hear horror stories of the Seattle bus system, I will say that I was able to take the bus (two buses, specifically) more or less from my door to the theater, no fuss. But it did take a while, and forget about catching them back late Saturday night...
Sunday was Writer Girls brunch, which always pretty much overtakes the day, but I did work more on client manucript, and prep for my NaNoRevMo - 30 more sleeps until the revised manuscript for THE COLD EYE is handed in!
And thus we head into Monday. How'd y'all spend your Halloween/Dia de los Muertos weekend?
