Blog Interrupted

I’ve been extremely busy in the past couple of weeks, trying to get a million and one things done. 

I’ve contacted a marketing agency to see about how to get more sales from my Etsy store.  Okay, how to get ANY sales from my Etsy store.  One of the things my agent has told me to do (a goal) is to have 100 individual items up by the beginning of next month.  For people who’ve just gone there now and looked, that’s 85 extra items. 

So, I’ve been busily making jewelry.

On top of all this, I was also insane enough ambitious enough to enter into my local SCA group’s A&S competition.  So, I’ve been making my entries, planning displays, doing research on things like paternosters (the prayer beads, not the prayers), and writing term papers documentation for all my entries.

Oh yeah, and I offered to make desert for that event as well (which which is expected to have an increase of attendance due to a super spiffy award that will be given out during the event.  So, I went from making lemon curd for about 80 people to making double the amount.)  Luckily, I can make lemon curd in my sleep, just about.  (No, it’s not exactly a period recipe, but I had found a period recipe for “orange pudding” that I adapted to make into lemon curd … What?  Yes, I really do geek out on things like this.)

As well as doing all my normal activities like taking care of MiL and all of her appointments, taking care of the house, cooking daily, etc etc etc.  Oh yeah, and having another computer failure. 

I missed my “blogiversary” due to the computer failure, which was last week on the 10th.  I’ve missed a lot of things going on in the fat-o-sphere, and writing about them all.

But today, I was signed onto LiveJournal for a bit, making sure my friends were still alive.  LiveJournal has a feature it calls Writer’s Block.  They post a question every day, and people can answer it or not as they wish.

Today’s question:  If a magic genie told you your calories wouldn’t count for 24 hours, would it change what and how much you ate that day? 

There is so much here to respond to, it would take a book to do so.

And, since I still have to make more jewelry, work on the lace (which won’t be finished by next week, but is being entered as a work in progress), make the paternoster and write up the documentation (now that I have enough research done), I don’t have time to write that book.

So, I’ll leave this question to you, dear readers.  Pick this question apart as much as you like, write dissertations on how this whole premise is wrong, do whatever you want.

I will be back, hopefully soon.   I only have 30 more items to make for the website, and then take pictures of them all.  Whoever knew that a jewelry artist would have to learn how to take pictures?  I mean… that’s not my medium! 😉
