- Kitchen, cleaned.
- New anode, scoured.  Will try to wire it up tonight.
- Tumbler located.
- Bar stock cut into one inch sections.  Glory hallelujah to the bolt cutters from hell.
- Located more thin gauge copper for dog tags.
- Sample tumbled some of the copper slugs for half an hour.  Decided they still need a hit with the belt grinder before they go into the scrub again.
- Also decided that 36 slugs is too many.  Went back later and weighed them all in both hands again.  Decided 36 slugs is doable.  Need a canvas casting cloth though. Researching casting methods, beginning to write out definitions.

Also, for anyone doing NaNoWriMo this year, I found some brilliant tarot spreads for writers/artists.
- A Simple Spread For A Story.
- Plot: For Writers With Writer's Block.
- Goal, Conflict, Motivation.

First and foremost, my thoughts are with you.  I hope you're holding up.  I know how busy you are, I know all the things that have to be taken care of and above all, I know you're too busy to be online right now.  But I just want you to know your absence is felt deeply.  I miss you, my friend and I hope you're okay.  ~bumps~

And then, five things make a post:

- They laid off 100 more folks from my office on Wednesday, and my new manager called a team meeting, the first of its kind since my previous manager was converted from a full time employee to an outside contractor.  At 4pm.  On the day they laid off 100 people.  I had a minor freak out.  Turned out it was for nothing.  Oh except no one knows if I have a job come the first of July.    :|

- My cough lingers, mostly because I haven't been sleeping.  Turns out months of constant low grade stress is not healthy for a body.  Who knew?

- I bought yarn! And circular needles!  And the yarn got here but the needles haven't yet.  I will do the sock thing before the year is done if it kills me.

- I also got new Threadless shirts.  Yay $5 tshirts!  (Shelf Life x2, Odd But Cute x2, & I Can't Draw, for those of you keeping score at home. This balances out the insane full price I paid for Ode To Joy x2.  Yes, I can quit anytime I want.)

- I also got my soap order from  Mmmmm soap.  Beautiful packaging, smells fantastic, reasonable prices for boutique soap, one of those things I love, free samples. I have yet to test drive, so when I do, I'll let you know.  BPAL may have a competitor in my online shopping roster.

Bonus question:  How do you decide when to do OOMs?  Should I be doing OOMs for Olga, who I haven't tagged in with in forever?  How about Earl?  What about River's margin quotes?  Does anybody read those things?  Tell me your philosophy on OOMs.  Inquiring minds want to know.
