use it or lose it

well, it has been half a month since the last post.
i will start off with some tiny gripes but then it will get better.
tonight the copier was giving me grief.
it is rather frigid outside.
i lost my thumbdrive!
yeah, the new one, on which i was almost done coloring those pages. i get a sort of one-track mind sometimes and well, i just finished scanning those pages again. that is, since i feel like i need to finish them. someone told me to wait a week and now it's been about a week. i know i had it on the 23rd, and probably the 24th and then i stayed homebound, mostly doing housechores for a couple days and when the daze was over, my memory was gone.
nearly absolute nutso i've been driven--i've repeatedly looked in places where i don't see myself putting putting it. i would like to see this occurrence of misplacing memory sticks (a fairly new development in my life) to be ushered out with 2008.
things will positively get better.
i have been using some recent time to fabricate a small world in my head for use with future comics. i have been wanting to dash some out and probably would have if i was not paused at character designs.
admittedly, it is not all fiction. the couple of pages i have in mind stemmed from my awe of the postman. on particularly crappy days he wears a cape. and often i pretend he is an old dyke.
i am technically on break from school, so i have also been reading. the other day i finished poison river(outlines the story of luba before she shows up in palomar), and have now dug into palomar, both are by gilbert hernandez. after work this evening i read the chapter duck feet, where la bruja comes to town. uh-oh! this is where my mind really, no, REALLY started being blown away. ... it all falls apart but is so carefully crafted that it just makes sense and holds on. yeah!
