More John K. Snyder III Art; Discworld 2010 Ho!; Work Is Fun; and Hello, Friends of Neil
John has sent me another bit of his Very Cool Art - this time a sketch of Nightmare, from Dr. Strange - which really needs to be posted here because it’s deliciously eerie. So here it is. John is majorly talented (not that it needs to be said).





He also sent me a link to a phenomenon he witnessed the other day that I sadly did NOT see:

DC Tweed Ride for Arts for the Aging, Inc. (AFTA)

I bet that looked AWESOME.

...

In other news, I have become determined that, despite money difficulties at the present time, by August of next year I *will* be packing for the 2010 UK Discworld Con. I’ve been wondering if it was wise to even hope that I might make it, but as Rob says, “Positive thinking!” So now thanks to that encouragement and a couple of other factors, I am throwing caution to the winds and anticipating that somehow, someway, possibly with only one remaining kidney (I KID. I KID. SELLING ORGANS ON THE BLACK MARKET IS BAAAAD) I will make it to the con. Which will be great, since I already miss several of my Discworld buddies (OH, BRITISH PEOPLE, WHY YOU HAVE TO LIVE SO FAR AWAY?). Unfortunately, I fear this means I may also need to think about a costume (I am so bad at this), if only because I’ve worn one for at least part of each of the prior cons, and I’d feel kind of bad now if I didn’t even make the effort. Apparently, the only thing that will make me actively plan a costume (other than Halloween when I was a kid) is Terry Pratchett. Knowing Terry, he will see me and immediately ask why I'm not wearing a corset or a gold miniskirt this time. And then I will feel guilty for not having costumed. Heh.

...

And to move to another topic completely without any segue whatsoever, good news from work - I am actually working on drafting a segment of a brief right now! I know, I know, last year I was drafting whole judicial decisions. But hey! This is the most interesting thing I’ve ever done on a contract attorney job! I have to be excited. Not to mention it reminds me of my life as a Real Lawyer (which I will totally get back at some point, RIGHT, ECONOMY?). Ahhh.

...

And finally, hello to anyone who’s wandered over here from Neil Gaiman's journal and my previous post on Neil Gaiman, Coraline, “Mother Holle,” and That Ridiculous Article Some Uninformed Person Wrote. (Thank you for the link, Neil, and I am glad to see that you've accepted your title as a Ruler of the Darkness of This World.) If you’re one of those who’s friended me, welcome to the madhouse, although I can’t promise every post will be as exciting as that. :) But you might enjoy this post while you’re here, if only because it contains The Littlest Neil Gaiman.

I was thinking of you as I posted that, you know. :)

Isn't it AWESOME?

Joe Kelly wins infinity points for saying his most favorite Deadpool team-up ever would be Dr. Strange and DP (again)! :D

I'd like to go to the 2010 UK Discworld Convention, but it is late enough in August that classes will have already started. I'll be taking classes and TAing, so I won't be able to go.

I'm hoping there will be another North American Discworld Convention, and that I can go to one in the UK at some point when I'm not associated with a school that starts classes around August 22nd.

Aw. Well, it's entirely possible that there will be another NADWCon at a time when you can go. :)

I added you to my reader after reading your post linked from Neil's. I checked out a few others to be sure, but I like your voice. Keep on writing.
