Things that Happened Today

This little guy bashed into Phil’s window. You could almost see the tiny stars spinning around his head. At first I thought he was going to die of shock, but I kept him warm and eventually he shook it off enough to fly to the top of the wisteria arbor, where he sat for at least another half hour before flying off.

Edit: I’m told this is a Golden Crowned Kinglet (!) and now that I’ve gone and read a bit about them, I think it may be a queenlet, because the males apparently have an orange spot in the gold streak on the head. I’d thought it was a boy because of the bright colors. At least I could tell it was a bird…heh.

Carol was in today, getting more KickStarter rewards out the door…and we discovered that we are very close to the end of the current volume of Girl Genius. This is worrying, since we’re still shipping the last one. Argh.

I’ve been working on the last of the old KickStarter rewards that I’ve still got on my “to do” list. This week, I’ve been remastering all the old wallpapers. I’m going back to the master files and re-exporting everything as highest quality jpegs. I’m also making new size ratio versions of some of the older wallpapers. I should have had it all done ages ago. It’s taking so long, I think I’ll have to take some time out from the project to work on one of the other things we promised as a stretch goal: the PDF print-your-own box for volumes 1-13 project. This will probably take less time than remastering all those wallpapers. I’m determined to get the LSFW (less safe for work) set done before I move on to the box, though.

Eventually, I will get all these old monkeys off my back and move on to new monkeys projects!
