I have learned that I cannot be online when I’m working on the book.
Here’s proof. In the past hour I discovered that an anime series I wrote the dub scripts for years ago was released this year. I tracked down my old boss and called her. She promises they used a completely new script for the dub, but now I have to pay money to find out if that’s true, dragging out an old computer to compare scripts. Also: why do I want to do that? I’m not going to get a free DVD out of it, and they aren’t going to go back and put my name on it and who cares about anime but this is some half-assed excuse to take a break so i’m going to ignore it and move on.
Then: these people are awesome.
And also: this is addictive.
You could also factor in the fact that today we go to the escrow company and i sign something that makes me a homeowner and half of my things are in boxes and i’m waiting to hear word on just about everything that’s going to happen in the next six months.
You could factor in the fact that our rings arrived this week and they’re in a pretty box very close to where i’m working and the temptation to put on my ring while i type is almost too much.
Okay. I’m going offline. I can’t resist the temptation to surf.
