As those of you who follow my sister over at Portabello Pixie undoubtedly know, there is a great deal of moving-type stuff going on. This is mostly because we are, in fact moving. Into an amazing house which I am incredibly excited for. Said sister is going to be redesigning my room; I am intrigued, excited, and a tad anxious...not because I doubt her taste, of course, but because I am exactly the sort of antsy my-way-is-the-highway person who would go hungry before asking someone else to order for them at the cafe.

I'm sure it will be a delight, however, and knowing her will be ten times more stylish than anything I could come up with. Huzzah!

Supposedly I'm packing up the rest of my junk right now. But being the procrastinator that I am, I....meh, I'll finish that thought later.

Since the last report, the writer's group thing has met once again, and I received some great feedback that I am eager to implement. The writing process is going fairly smoothly for me, which is great since I'd like to become fabulously wealthy and quit my day-job as soon as possibly. The goal is before I turn twenty-five. I'll let you know how that goes in a couple of years, shall I?

In regards to the Phil Innis stuff, I am sad to say I have not had much time at all to prod at that particular pet in the last couple of weeks. It's not forgotten; I'm still thrilled that I was able to include hookers in the fourth episode without making it obvious that they were hookers to anyone who wouldn't know what a hooker was :) Family-friendly hookers! Truly a milestone in my writing career.

In other news, a couple of weeks ago the family brought in a puppy :) She's an adorable fluffy-wuffy English lab named Penelope. I at first voted we name her Calamity (I mean, who would you rather walk your kids to school...Calamity Jane, or Sweet Mary Roseweather?) but Lucky Penny fits her a bit better.

Well, I'll try to get a new more funny-bone assaulting post up soon. In the meantime, I really ought to get back to packing!
