Christmas came and went, and it was nice I guess. Ate so much I thought I was going to explode, went and saw my mom’s crazy family on Saturday, and managed to do seven new sketches in one of my sketchbooks on Christmas and the day after. The money received for Christmas is about to turn into a box of 2008 Donruss Threads baseball, as I begin to run through the boxes I’ve been wanting to get for awhile that have finally fallen into my price range (will be workin’ on this till spring or so, then I’m hopefully scaling way back). I having nothing useful for the blog coming out of Christmas though.
I started scanning a bunch of stuff Friday (Secret Santa gift, a few random cards, Fantastic Four Archives break, and a trade with the Great Sports Name Hall of Fame), but was distracted and never finished thanks to RiffTrax of Star Wars. It was glorious, but I got nothing done afterwards, and I was too worn out to retrieve anything I did get done after getting back to town late last night. So yeah, I got nuthin’.
No biggie though, just me being lazy. What is kinda biggie though, is on the way back in to my place last night, I managed to drop the five regular inserts (not the sketch card) I from the FF Archives box AND nearly all of my sketch cards, severely dinging up all the inserts and a few of my sketch cards. As well, all the sketch cards I dropped suffered at least minor damage (which was all but the very first five I ever did), with a few being pretty much completely ruined. Needless to say, a lousy end to an otherwise great holiday. So I’m back at square one with them, and in a somewhat foul mood today.
The fact that my box of ’09 UD A Piece of History still says awaiting payment, even though the payment was sent almost a week-and-a-half ago, that ain’t helping. I grow annoyed at the universe kicking me in general, but especially on the heels of things going surprisingly right of late. And in a place where it hurts, like my art and my cards. You hear me universe? Find yourself a new buttmonkey. Go be an asshole to someone else. I’m done with this crap.
On that note, seeya soon everyone! Hopefully things will be better next time I get around to posting.
What do you do when you get knocked down? Get back up and fight harder.
