sew your fortunes on a string and hold them up to the light

I have had a very productive workday. Got up, went for a run with TBRE and the GRD, worked from 8-10 on Shadow Unit stuff and then started in in seriousness on the proposal for the Heroic Hookers of the Old West Steampunk YA Novel, which will henceforth be known by the working title of Karen Memory.

Whilst consuming a large mug of standuponit's Mexican hot cocoa recipe, I got over 2500 words, which was more or less the entirety of the first chapter, and I know what the first scene of the second chapter is and will be writing it tomorrow. My goal is more or less a finished proposal by the time I leave for Viable Paradise, though if I still can't see well enough to drive in a week and a half I'm not sure how I'm getting there.

Now, though, I am going to make myself some lunch (boiled eggs, walnut raisin bread, orange/carrot/ginger/beet juice) and start reading a book I've been asked to blurb until it's time to go climbing.

If I'm this productive with one working eye, imagine what I would be like with two?


What happened to your other eye?!?
I have a viral keratitis, and until it resolves itself, vision in my right eye is kind of hosed, because some nasty little bug is eating small pits in my cornea.

Yuck, huh?

(Having gone without 75% of my visual field on occasion, I have to say: it's a real pisser.)

but it could have been many worse things, so I soldier on.
You are amazing!
Best of luck with your poor eye.
And a happy pre birthday, one-eded one..
Mexican hot cocoa recipe? Is there a link to this somewhere?

And yay, productivity!
Oh, man, that sounds amazing...

There's nothing quite like chocolate magic...

In other news, it is already the 22nd on this side of the globe so I am raising a virtual glass to your health, wishing you many happy returns of the day.

Thank you!
Aye, now it's past midnight here as well. Many well wishes, ma'am. Happy Birthday. *salutes*
Thank you.

Happy Birthday!

Thank you!
Maybe it is rather the case that productivity increases with less stimuli and you should consider eyelessness. Or groovy blindfolds!Happy Birthday!
Hey - I don't think you read my LJ, so I figured this was the best place to wish you Happy Birthday. Hope your one eyed situation resolves itself soon. Enjoy your day!
Just saw at avocadovpx that it's your birthday. Happy Birthday!

I hope you're off doing something wonderful and awesome.
Happy Birthday!
For the record, this post not only made me go look up that recipe, run to the store to buy chocolate, and stand around over the stovetop at 11pm at night, it also taught me (or else I extrapolated) that Mexican Hot Chocolate makes the best fake Mochas ever.

I am not sure I will ever sleep again. Thank you!
