Neurotic Owl

flying through clouds of uncertainty on wings of existential dread

Belated weekly thingy: Happy 5777!

Which is about to be the Jewish year, in case you’re confused.  And in honour of Rosh Hashanah traditions, here’s something round and sweet:




Places to buy stuff!

  • TEEPUBLIC: mostly t-shirts, a few other products.  Watch for sales, when shirts drop from $20 to $14!
  • REDBUBBLE: Just, I don’t know, a ton of different stuff.  T-shirts are more expensive than Teepublic, but there are a lot more options.
  • AMAZON: Home of the Geeky Gals Coloring Book!
  • ETSY: beaded jewelry, bags of creepy tiny dolls, and The Neurotic Owl Tarot

Did I miss something?  I think that’s everything.

booktopedgeThings that kind of sucked but also have a little bit of a bright side, I guess?:

  •  Next week at work is going to suuuuuuck.  So much to do, so little time/resources/magic wands.  It’s only a four day week for me, though, thanks to the aforementioned Jewish holiday.  Which is theoretically great, but will probably just mean an extra-crazy Tuesday playing catch-up, plus High Holy Days just seem to always trigger multiple dipwads to go, “Ooh, I should be Jewish, I want a day off.”  Yes, by all means, use my ancient religious observance to skip work, THAT’S WHAT IT’S FOR.  Also, fuck you, I take two whole days a year (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur), and neither one is exactly a dance party.  I’ll be in synagogue Monday morning for a solid 5 1/2 hours, and we won’t even talk about how long a day Yom Kippur is.


What’s making me happy this week:

  • I sat next to a really cute kid at the ballet last night who loves to draw and had a ball watching me sketch before the show and during intermission.  She is going to be a ballerina marine biologist astronomer.  I NEVER really socialize with strangers, especially when I’m drawing (because it makes me feel like a performing monkey), but 9 year old ballerina marine biologist astronomers are irresistible.  She was delightful.  Also, Madame Butterfly is always fabulous, so it was a night of winning.
