It's Weird But...

Okay, I know you'll think this is weird, but I can't write anything at the moment because of the Feng Shui (wind water). I'm afraid my Qi is just all messed up at the moment, man.

I have two set-ups you see, computer, scanner and printer, in one area and it faces "in-the-way" (no directional sense , sorry - might be East). In the other room I keep a laptop and all-in-one printer where I draw. Where I draw faces "out the way", through a picture-window, to landscape - it's the opposite of this. That is my writing area. However, my laptop AC adaptor blew, and I have to get a new one, but I forgot and ordered P.G Wodehouse's Woodhouse Playhouse; thanks largely to Brian Fies and Mike Lynch and I suppose Raina Telgemeier,

Digression: Stop Press; how cool is this, I just added the link and spotted that Raina Telgemeier has original art from The Baby Sitters Club books, up for grabs. What a great present.

because a conversation concerning all three was on my mind when it should have been Fujitsu cable.

So here I am, reluctantly sitting at the computer facing the wrong way, and for some reason it makes me uneasy and unproductive, so I'll leave shortly and go watch John Alderton as Mister Mulliner, and Pauline Collins as a variety of very attractive, plummy gels.

If you ever wondered why cartoonists are lone creatures who dislike working with other people, you now know why - they are just a little bit off-kilter. I'll be back when the Feng Shui works, and when my new cable arrives.

Don't drag me into your feng shui crisis. Besides, it sounds to me like you have your priorities in order. You won't be lying on your deathbed wishing you'd ordered more cable.

I have a page of Raina's, and it's one of the cleanest originals I've seen. She pencils in light non-photo blue under nice sharp inks. Good stuff.

Lisbeth says it's a dodge and I'm just getting my feet under the tree for the Xmas hols, Brian. I am denying this.

I do miss my laptop though, hopefully the AC charger will get here before I decide to try to "fix" the one that rasped-out on us.
