Bonus! Voz vs. Numbers

voz vs numbers

This is a true story (except for the talking dog).

Numbers, somehow, always manage to trip me up. I don’t know what it is about them and my brain, but they just can’t play nice together. More than once I have caught myself updating the monster blog with the wrong number. I got in the habit of checking to see what number I was on before beginning the update itself, but in that second or two between looking at the post and loading the screen to update, I would get the numbers wrong. Sometimes more than once. Sometimes more than twice.

Go ahead, look right now. I go magically from 457 to 258! I just caught it this morning. I’m hopeless! Why can’t all numbers be 5???



Bonus post! Voz is grumpy!


I ordered ink for my fancy-ass printer last week and it’s still not here. I can’t get the ink in stores, which I didn’t realize before I bought it. It’s an awesome printer, but when you’re out of cyan, you’re out of cyan until more comes in the mail. I don’t mind ordering it, but they said it would only take 2 or 3 days to get to me. It’s been much longer than that. Meanwhile…the print queue is growing and growing and growing.

Monster #420 — I’m FINE!

voz needs help!

Apparently, I’m anemic. I’m not sure it counts as being sick, but if you want to give me a vacation or a hug, I won’t turn you down.

Not a monster, unless you reject my love.

voz confesses

Seriously. You guys are the best.

Monster #342 — Tell me! Tell me!

we know something

If it’s where I mislaid my lovely fountain pen TELL ME!

Monster #328 1/2 — Ha ha ha

are you serious?

I thought was so ahead of the game ordering a huge quantity of the wooden blocks I need for my rubber stamps. I got them and tucked them away because I didn’t think the stamps themselves would get here in time for my big deadline (THREEFREAKINGDAYSFROMNOW), but I got an e-mail saying the stamps had been shipped. yay! So I opened my big box of wooden blocks to put the labels on so I’d have a head start when the stamps arrived.


ha ha ha

First I had to verify it wasn’t MY mistake. This is exactly the kind of thing I do (I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ordered the wrong size envelopes for my cards), but it wasn’t my mistake this time. They just sent the wrong thing. G-06 instead of G-05. 600 of them. That’s an awful lot of the wrong size block.

I haven’t heard back yet, but I hope they’ll be overnighting me at least 100 of the size I actually ordered. I was very polite in my frantic e-mail.
