Dropped off five CDs at the post office this morning to be mailed all over the place for various projects. I’ve noticed that many of these songs we’re pitching are for projects that are scheduled to be recorded in the February-March timeframe, so we may be hearing nothing for weeks and then, possibly, several things at once. Here’s hoping.

Was sitting at my desk in my winter coat, warming my feet by the space heater, trying to concentrate on doing something productive when called to say she was going out for coffee. Yay! We met at Fido and had a nice, long discussion about writing, religion, and what handfuls we both are for our respective partners, and then whisked off to Target for girly clearance-browsing. Whee!

Then I had to dash back home to pick up Karsten so we could go meet and S for pizza at Mafiaoza’s. That was a blast, especially when she and S debated whether 3 12″ or 2 18″ pizzas would actually yield more pie — and actually went through the geometrical calculations to determine that, yes, the 2 18″ pizzas offer substantially more edible area. Wow. Was I ever relieved to know that!

We had a great time telling scary cold weather stories, scary car stories, and scary dog attack stories until they realized they had to go home and feed their own dogs or risk canine cannibalism.

And now I’m tucked into bed with a heated pillow at my neck and my hot laptop on my, well, laptop, basking in the snug warmth of two comforters and a nearby space heater. I may even get some songwriting done this evening. Hurray for heat!

With friends like these, who needs heat?

    Yay for staying warm.

    I hope you’ve checked with the gas company whether your bill is based on an estimate or actual data, though. Because if it’s based on an estimete, you could have it entirely off for the whole next month and they’d still increase it because they assume you’ll be using a proportionally increased amount of heat as you were early in the year. It totally sucks.

    It’s based on actual reads of the meter. The gas guy came out to check the meter and make sure it was working, and also that there were no leaks, and he said it was all accurate. He also didn’t flinch a bit at the cost of our bill, so he’s clearly been hearing that bad and worse, and advised us off the record to use alternate means of heating ourselves until the gas prices come down — such as radiant oil heaters.

    Thanks for the reminder, though. You’re sweet to point that out. Mwah!
