Financial reports annoy me. You would think that being someone who appreciates order, who keeps a log of hours and a calendar for projects of all sorts, I'd enjoy the columns and rows of an excel spreadsheet. Not so. While I'm not incompetent with creating formulas for data, I protest the idea that excel can issue a "bad girl, no no Mia" bong if it doesn't like my information. If it were human, I could appeal to its logic. I could convince it WHY column E5 and C5 can be multiplied with G5 to get the result I wish for and NO IT BLOODY WELL ISN'T CIRCULAR!
I am considering a lovely outing with my laptop, Oscar. I rather think he will enjoy a swim about now.
Other shit: I'm awaiting the cover for Mind F*cked. I saw the proof and it is possibly the best cover I've ever had. I cannot wait to share it with you. I'm especially pleased because I picked out the gents on the cover by attaching their stock photo links to my cover request. And the script is stellar.
Other-er shit: My editor, Courtney, sent me edits of both Mind F*cked and She's Got Balls this morning. Both are to be completed and submitted this week. This is the same week I am to be well into Faery Surprising, a book I haven't begun yet. Well, not exactly true. I've begun it but word counts under 1k don't matter.
Other-er-er shit: My other editor, Michele, has asked me if I'm on schedule for the three books TEB would like to see. As I am yet completing Melting Melinda (and had planned to be finished Sunday), have not started the other two (needed January and March) I should say, "No, dearest editor, I am not." HOWEVER, my lovely calendar had allowed some leeway this summer of six weeks, knowing that the boss had many long hours planned for my day job. I'm pleased I did that because where I might have been far off schedule, I am merely smack on. Huzzah!
I'm eating my pork loin sandwich, lays chips, and washing it down with cool milk. I know it's early for lunch but I missed breakfast and I'm starving. And. bored of math. I've already seen my boss glare at me twice so I had best finish up and return to work.
