Sorry about there being no post at all yesterday. I was ill with a very sore throat and a fever and didn't feel up to much other than watching some Russell Howard's Good News. Hilarious show. I love it muchly. I still have both a sore throat and a fever, but I decided to come into work today anyway. The fact that my appetite has returned made up my mind for me. Luckily, work isn't too strenuous and I should be fine.
This past weekend was incredibly busy - Sunday especially. Friday night saw me at my father's French amateur theatre performance. It was very funny, though a little difficult for me to understand in places. Saturday I went out to visit the local leather goods store, get a very short haircut, and then read The Stand by Stephen King, which needed to be finished by Sunday.
As it turns out, I did finish The Stand... at 3:30am on Sunday morning. I then had about four hours sleep before I had to wake up and watch Ladyhawke, which is a two hour movie, before running off to film panels for both book and film for Silver Stag Entertainment. Immediately following that, I went over to Tom's place to help him shoot a couple of things. I will be appearing on his YouTube channel and will post the videos here once they're up.
Immediately following that was the monthly author meet up. It was fun, though I was so very tired by that point. By the time I exited the bar, I could feel the fever starting and the scrubby feeling at the back of my throat had blossomed. My fault, of course.
All the stress from the past two weeks, what with the fight for respect I've been embroiled in that has dragged me through emotional hell, and then the lack of sleep, and (let's be honest) proper nutrition. I'm surprised that I hadn't been struck ill sooner.
Some Bad News
Because I was so exhausted Sunday, and so ill Monday, I didn't actually get around to editing together the latest episode of Nights at the Round Table. I'll be doing that today so the episode will be up shortly. I'm really sorry to everyone who was expecting it last night. I didn't have the strength for it. It's late, but it's coming!
Some Good News
I looks like I'll be at ComicCon this year after all! A cancellation has given me a table. I'm looking to share it, as the cost of a table is a bit more than I can afford. I believe I will be sharing the table with the wonderful folks of Renaissance Press. They're great fun to be around, and I'm looking forward to it.
I'm at table 2711. Or I should be. It's all very tentative at the moment.
The bad-ish news is that I don't have time to order new stock for the show (I honestly thought I wasn't getting in, so I haven't reordered the books I'm low on). Ethan Cadfael: The Battle Prince is quite low, stock wise. It's been oddly popular of late. And I also have to come up with a blurb for Human... Since I intend to have little leaflets at ComicCon to advertise the book.
This is all very rushed, which makes me anxious. Still, I get a table, and that's really awesome. I haven't missed a single one since Ottawa ComicCon began, and I'm really glad I get to keep that going.
I think that's everything. I have a lot of work to catch up on. Here is a song I've posted before, but it continues to crack me up so I'm posting it again.
