Backlogged - What a Nice Way to Live

I'm backlogged - totally under water. I got a BINGO in 2nd place yesterday with the B-14 call, but I'm still writing/researching the story because I just don't know enough about the specifics of the timeframe. I'll have it nailed and posted by tonight, then a short one to finish up that number. Yesterday night's number is also going to require some research. That's what I'm really enjoying about B2ME this year, though. Instead of just being things that are springing from my own head, they are actually based in history and I love doing historical research.

I have a art project on Spring Greens due today. I did spend an hour yesterday getting the base drawn out, scanned, and printed onto the type of paper I want to use. I will be continuing to work on this throughout the day at the shop. I know exactly what I want to have as the final effect, but it won't be done today. I'll Email them and tell them I'll turn it in early next week. This makes two artwork deadlines for this group that I've missed (sigh), but at least this is closer to being done than my last piece.

I really could use another day off, but I'm grateful that I got one at all and I'll make it work. I still can't shake my cold - I have a deep cough and a sinus drip that just won't stop. I don't think I've been healthy for more than a week at a time since the year started. Ridiculous! And congratulations to Mondo, the well-deserved winner of Project Runway All Stars. He had a great collection and since he should have won on Season 8, it was a delight to finally have his talent recognized.

Can you do me a favor? If you're going to post spoilers, could you post a warning? I haven't watched the PR finale yet as was actually looking forward to it being a surprise who won. I know, I normally don't care about spoilers (although a lot of people do, and care deeply about them), but this time, I didn't want to be spoiled.
Oh, I'm so sorry. I'll mark spoiler below the cut next time, it just didn't occur to me.

Courtesy would be to put something like 'Spoilers for PR Season Finale' in the text for your cut, not below the cut. Once someone's clicked on the cut, it's often too late. ;)
I was rooting for Michael, but Mondo's collection was obviously the best last night.
It was a fabulous collection, very coherent except for the lame dress. I'll have to check Nieman Marcus online this summer and see what will be available and what the prices will be for some of his things. He's just so innovative with patterns and colors.

Michael's was great too, without the white gown at the end even though the judges liked it.
Congratulations on your BINGO!
I hope you can shake that cold of yours soon.
It really is silly how long this is hanging on. If it was a man, I'd be thrilled. But it's a cold and I would rather it goes back home instead of moving in with me.

Thanks for the congrats :-)
Congrats on Bingo! =)

Sheesh, I really hope you're feeling better soon.
It's so annoying. It ebbs and flows, but never truly goes away. I know it's not allergies because I'm not allergic to anything up here, or at least I haven't been for the past 30 years :-)

Thanks for the congrats :-)

A pure nuisance, that's what. No choices on the work because if I gave something up, it would be the writing and right now that's my creative outlet (very important for my mental health - LOL).

thanks for the Bingo congrats and the translation. Much appreciated!
I think you need more than a day off - you need loads of time. Of course, that is only possible if you win the lottery...
I'm lucky if I can string more than two days in a row together at any given time :-)

I suppose to win the lottery one must buy a ticket? Oh well.....
