What I’ve been doing

Last week, we went to Davis, California. I finished editing the comic book and sent it to the printer (and then today I re-sent it because of typos. More typos). I pretty much had my head buried in the computer during the comic book work, but Thursday I took some time away and went to the local knitting guild and had a lovely time, knitting and chatting and everything. Which is really what it’s all about. Afterwards, I wandered around downtown Davis for a while, saw some awesome knitting graffiti, bought a comic book, a usb cable (my cell phone battery was about dead), and a new sketchbook because I’ve nearly filled up my old one.

I’ve been working on some superhero masks this weekend as well– the crochet ones go very fast. The knit ones take 2-3 times as long. Now, you know how much I knit, and how fast, so if I’m knitting something and I think it’s taking a long time compared to crochet, then you know– it just takes longer! That’s one of the reason to choose crochet over knitting. Well, that and the fact that it’s so danged easy to freeform in crochet. With only 1 live stitch at any given time, you can pretty much go anywhere you want to.

Been reading, too– the book I’m reading is long, though, because it’s an omnibus. It’s a vampire romance…. the writing is so-so, and unfortunately, the sex scenes…. well, let’s put it this way. I read the first one, blinked, and when I got to the lead up to the second sex scene, I thought “oh, please please please– let the story fade to black!” Blessedly, it did. Writing like this really makes me appreciate it when a writer is very comfortable writing the hot and heavy steamy scenes.

Anyway, then yesterday, I discovered that some time ago, some spammer exploited a vulnerability in my blog and recently used it to turn my blog into the invisible land of spammy links. *sigh* RSS and cross-posting still worked, of course, so nobody noticed. 🙂 I spent some time yesterday morning fixing the blog and securing it, and today I decided it had been too long (3 years?) since I’d changed all my passwords on all my accounts. So that’s what I did today. And that’s my PSA for the day: When’s the last time you changed your passwords?
