When the gauze comes off tomorrow, if past history is any indication of future results, I should have 20/20 vision in both eyes. Unassisted. For the first time in my life. My fixed right eye sees so much more than my left, glasses-corrected eye, it's silly.
Then this blog will stop this Twitter feed approach and maybe get back to talking about editing 'n' stuff.
Having said that, I just found out that the clan is considering a complete family Bonnaroo experience in June. Lineup was announced yesterday. I'm told it's killer.
Bonnaroo. No sweat on the glasses. Being able to see from far back. Yowza.
Whole new world.

Creed: Hands off. Ask first. No one’s
business but our own.
Unencumbered greed stampede.
So screw Black Friday.
Laughter runs wild through the house
Monkey business fun

Who I really need working for me is someone like this:
But, alas, some Baptist pastor has thrown in her lot with Land on Demand -- yes, "her" and "Baptist pastor." And it's not exactly Land on Demand, perhaps, entirely, in the long run. And while she's probably tough in her own way, she's no Reid Fleming.
Some changes goin' on.
After the last few days mulling over the pros and cons of two excellent HM prompts, an entirely different one just popped into my head based on current events -- those current events being that as of about 5 this morning, I'm now officially running a new enterprise, with an LLC and an EIN and everything. Website development began last month, logos being designed, copy being written, ad strategies, bank account. All new concepts for me, but in pretty familiar territory.
I'm starting a publishing house, sort of a different kind of home for authors who want to self-publish. Let's just say that now folks can buy it wholesale.
This week's topic, I don't think covered before, is business. Whatever that word inspires is fine. 5-7-5. Submit whatever you like in the comments section below; indicate two for judging. Audiovisual addenda be fine.
I just heard from a publisher in upstate NY that she's going home because of a snowstorm. Ah, another deadline diverted. Even so, I gotta head back down to the dungeon. Need to get that Protestant work ethic thing going.
And as Reid Fleming says, "Tell your friends."
