Leaving this public in the hopes random peoples will see it.

To put it simply, I plan on doing some short "soundbite" type comics soon for The Law of Purple-- at the very least, once I'm out of this chapter finally. Some of them will be a week long, some only a page, but I'm hoping for all of them to flesh out the story a little bit further.  (For random wanderers, the Law of Purple is here.)

Two storylines I already have partially planned out:

What Casey was doing in the middle of the Battle for Shangri.

"Red threw me off a pier trying to teach me [how to swim] when we were kids-- I nearly drowned."

These won't probably be as "finished" looking as the current pages have been, so they'll take me less time to do, but they'll be more or less canon.

Any requests?

Will be the ONLY LOP update in the month of August, year 2007.

But I'm pleased with myself nonetheless.  XD  (stretches and goes to bed)

For the people who wander by here [15 Aug 2007|05:13pm]

Be aware for the sake of our children.

Unfortunately, I can't really say that it shocks me as much as it will shock other people: I have had some small experience myself with those willing to look the other way when it's too much trouble to help a child, and some experience with people who blame children for things done TO them, with people who are abusive and small minded.  If what happened to me could happen in a public school, abuse this horrific is not that big a step when the environment becomes isolated.

Please, people have to know about this.  Spread the word.  If you don't want to take a lot of time, just link this woman's journal.  Don't let it go on.  Knowing about the problem is the first step.

I want to shoot ComicGenesissss!!!!!!

The ftp program hasn't been working, so I decided to try logging in at the site to see whether it work if I tried uploading from there.  I couldn't remember my exact username, except that it's a variant on "Golden Dragon Girl," so I figured I'd just keep trying until I got it right.

Except it won't let me.  I get it wrong the first time, and now every FREAKING single time I click the login button, it gives me a page that says Username not valid!

(tries to throttle the site through the screen)  I can't even log out to retry logging in, because that's not an option here!  No second chances for faulty memory!!!  

This is really getting out of hand.  (hisses)

 :p   As LP knows, something dug my cat's grave up and pulled her out.  It smelled like skunk, but she didn't look to be chewed on.

Ted ended up being the one who reburied her.  He said she moved more like... more like an asleep kitty than a dead one.  (He then said "She's STILL a long cat, I had to curl her up to fit her down there!"  ^^;;)

(sighs) My poor little baby. Not that the body means much to HER anymore.

I'm trying, I really am.

And I am totally lost.  (lol)

At least it's not as much a catastrophe as some of the skins I first made for the LOP forum, but then I didn't have Angel helping me at all with that.

Why is it every time I think I'm just going to be checking my messages, I get carried away and the amount of work I get done gets cut in half?  I really need to get into this "buckling down" thing my mom keeps talking about.

A webcomic is work too [24 Jun 2007|04:24pm]
I am really enjoying having this already, and I've only had it a few days!  XDDD  Thanks for the nudge, LP!

On to my annoyed/angry rantish journal.

Today, I mentioned to a complaining coworker (who was annoyed that he keeps getting thirty-two to thirty-four hour workweeks and thus has no social life(in his words)) that I do a comic online as well, and think how THAT works out when I have to do that on top of my other job?

Bad idea.  He responded with:  "You don't HAVE to do it, it's your FREE time."

I suppose my answer that he heard was good enough, but it still makes me angry.  I said: "Yes I do, I said I would."

Of course, this probably didn't sink in to him.  Why doesn't anyone understand the concept of a promise anymore?  By beginning my webcomic, I made the promise that I would update, to the best of my ability, as regularly as possible, until the story of the comic has finished.  I have been doing this since 2004-- a year longer than I have had this job.  (This is my third summer at the grocery store.)  It will probably be going on for a long time, but I can't simply say "Enough of this, effers, I want more free time."  It doesn't work that way.  Just because so many immature children seem to think so doesn't make it so.  People read it.  Many of them are my good (wonderful, cherished, precious) friends.  It's not something you just blow off because you feel like it.

Besides, he's so peeved that he's getting thirty hours of work?  Has he ever heard of a forty hour workweek?  Hello?  People FOUGHT for that, and he's complaining that THAT's too much.  I happen to know he gets whole days off, just like the rest of us, at least twice a week, because the schedules are on a CHART and I can look at the schedule of anyone I choose.  I KNOW he can have a social life, if he so chooses.

How do I manage to not have angry rants at people?

Fortunately, this one is over, though-- I need to go work on my comic.  XD

(wonders mildly if her last entry freaked anyone out)

Werk ist not funz!!1!!  (dies)

This is the third out of four days in a row I've had to get up at six to go in at seven until 3 or 3:30.  I am not used to coming in so early, period.  I am very tired.  I'm actually having trouble typing. And there are three more days to go before I get a day off.  D:<

Moreover, whenever I have trouble at work, the webcomic becomes more difficult to get done.  This ticks me off. Granted, my next chapter is somewhat unorganized, but I'd at least like some time alone with the precomics involved with this one, so as to re-streamline and hammer it out just  a little more.  To be honest, I am actually rewriting sections of the c omic right up till the point where I do the lineart.  Sometimes the dialogue changes at the last minute.  It would be hard to get the comic done WITHOUT these nutty shifts.

Finally, the lady who was doing the scheduling quit.  Which means I have had to rewrite all the little notes; "Jessi needs off before three every Saturday," "Jessi's leaving for school early August," bla bla bla.  Niir.  It wouldn't bother me except they didn't tell us that we WOULD need to rewrite the notes-- the individuals must each ask, and the info must be passed on over and over.  Wouldn't it be simpler to put things like this on the bulletin board?  They didn't, I checked.  >_<

The only real good thing about her quitting is that I will now have a slightly easier time saying "no" to things-- extra hours, coming in early, staying late, coming back for a solitary weekend.  She has a "way" of asking, with the kind of puppy tone you can just hear in her voice, that I have trouble saying no to.  garr.  Sort of like my mom, except about thirty times more hyper.  ^^;

I think I feel better now.  I can't wait to leave, though-- I am NOT going back next summer.  I don't know what I'll do, but hopefully it'll involve my comics.  XD
