Did you miss me? Or is that just wishful thinking on my part?
While I was not blogging this past week, I was spending time on one of my multiple otakus*: art! I have an art installation (my first) going up next week (just in a local cafe--don't get too excited), and spent every possible moment finishing a piece (even missing out on Easter with my parents, which sucked because in addition to loving my parents, I really enjoy dyeing eggs**). My art stuff also necessitated a three-hour trip to Home Depot and various other hardware stores to find mounting*** materials that would comply with the cafe's idiosyncratic rules.
At Home Depot, I learned three important things:
Anyway, I am now back to life at its usual frenetic-but-bearable pace, so brace yourself for my usual frenetic-but-bearable frequency of posts.
P.S. Another thing I learned this week: the amount of Robin's Eggs I can consume is limited only by the number I can purchase.
* Is that how you pluralize "otaku," or is it already plural? Also, despite the term's frequent association with anime and manga, I am a fan of neither. I learned the term from Seth Godin.
** Holidays are awesome excuses for doing weird shit. Think about it: what other time of year could you color eggs or haul a tree inside, decorate it, and prop it up in your living room without having people think you were nuts?
*** Heh heh. She said "mounting."
**** Heh heh. She said "screws."

Hahaha I had to chuckle at your Home Depot comments! I just started working at THD and I thought the same thing on my first day of the job. Though a couple was shopping at the store yesterda and I chuckled softly and thought "haha FOUND SOME!" ... I LOVE the smell of lumber - unfortunately I'm in the hardware department. You might be asking too much for cutting AND measuring :-P .... any who - yay for having your art displayed!

Yes, actually we did miss you. But your absence is understood. I hope you plan on showing us your handy work with your art, I'd love to see it!

A HD wiithout lesbians??!!??? I didn't think that even existed. I thought that it was a requirement directive from the mother ship. I know exactly what you mean about the lumber and I always end up with some old guy with a square pencil behind his ear doing the measuring. I know what you mean.
