I have a mental list of people in the comic book industry that I've wanted to meet. Today, that list has one name taken off.

This morning, Kate Worley died after a long battle with cancer. She is best known for her work with Reed Waller on the internationally famous Omaha, the Cat Dancer. To say that her writing and the comic were influential would be to understate. Omaha has been banned or censored in some way in just about every country in the world. However, it had the best storytelling of any adult comic in the world.

She also did work on Disney's Who Framed Roger Rabbit? monthly series, and I'm sure that her work extends well beyond that.

Kate's writing has more than influenced my own. I credit her for my being able to write "relationship" stories, and it shows heavily in my fanfic Ice: New Life, which I need to get back to writing sometime.

Kate, you will be missed greatly. I was looking forward to reading more of your work, what with the new Omaha books coming out.

My condolences go out to her family, and to Reed Waller, who I know will miss her.

Crisis averted

This is probably the last entry here, for a few days, anyway.

Welpers, I'm not getting evicted. The lady at the aprtment office was able to work something out, but some things had to be done under the table. I'm going to basically forfeit my deposit to take care of this month's rent and next month's, as well as take care of the late fees. However, what this means is that I'm not going to be able to live here anymore, so I still have to move. That's okay, though. I'm going to move in with JT and Michael.

I do have a roommate, but she's going to go live with a friend. She'll be fine.

I don't look foreward to the endless amounts of paperwork that I'm going to have to fill out to do all this. Oh, well, a small price to pay. At least, I'm not going to have an eviction on my credit report. *whew*

Praise Krishna.

We do have a meeting with a homeowner who's selling a condo. It could net us some nice bit of cash.

I may still get a part time job, but I'm definitely going to sell stuff on e-bay, work on real estate and Seraphim Guard, and some writing projects.

Uh, oh...

Well, it turns out that someone on another livejournal decided to write about Michael Hopcroft, and he reprints an e-mail that Michael wrote to the Fudge list, which points to his placeholder page, which links to my main site, which links here! Guess I'd better so something about that.

Well, I am feeling better than I was earlier. It's good to know that I'm not going to go to jail (long story, too tired to tell it right now), but I'm still a little nervous. I'm going to call tomorrow on a condominium tomorrow to see if we can meet with the seller and maybe do a wraparound mortgage or a land contract or something, or maybe flip it to another investor (Mr. Bronchick? Mr. Conti?). That would certainly catch me up.

But I am hoping and praying that E-bay works. I have a good feeling.

And, I get to talk to Nicki tomorrow! Ooo, but the sound of her voice... I can't get enough of it. It motivates me, you know, to really work, especially now that I know I have other options open to me for making money.

Why won't it stop

Damn the Tourette's! All it starts is with a mental tic, and it cascades into full-out depression. Feelings of being forgotten, thrown away... I'm doing everything I can to stop it, but I can't. It's so bad, I feel like I'm about to cry. Oh, Krishna, help me!

Why is it that JT and Nicole have many dreams about me, in all kind of ways, and yet, I almost never dream of them when I sleep? I would love to be able dream about them both... Damn...

What does it mean?

I'm having some strange dreams lately. My dreams get particularly strange and vivid when big changes are about to come. I'm excited and scared at the same time.

I had one dream where I was being kept from seeing a friend by his parents, because I was being seen as a bad person. I'm wondering if that's just a buried memory from something that really happened? If so, why bring that up now?

But in another dream, and the subject of this entry, I flew to England to be with Nicole. We met and it was a very nice meeting. Our first day together was spent with her showing me all around her home town of Kettering. It seemed delightfully old-world (yeah, surprise, huh?) and looked just like the pictures I saw on the internet. We stopped at a place to eat, and a movie and a few other places. We then went to this old mansion and were touring it. It was huge.

Nicole and I were in a hallway in some part of it, and there was a spirit or a gypsy or something like that, but no one else beyond that. The spirit said "Now, you shall know the future" and when Nicole looked into a nearby mirror, she had aged into an old woman (still the figure of loveliness, though). I joined her at her side and looked, and I was shocked, but then I watched myself also age until I reached the point she was. When I looked at her next, it was like I was looking at someone I'd known my whole life. I gazed into her eyes and touched her face and... something... void...

I woke up right after that. I almost never dream of Nicole. I can count on one hand the number of times I have. Why this dream? Why this kind of content? It was so vivid and surreal, the colors stood out so much, but it had this feeling behind it... The song I have listed as "Current Music" seems to make a good soundtrack to the dream, with the light percussions, the Celtic background choir and the ethereal sound seem to bring the dream to the forefront of my mind.

The dream makes me feel disturbed, yet happy, yet a whole bunch of other things. I feel like I need to keep typing but... I don't know.

Ashlee's Oz Adventure

Ashlee (bootselven) just uploaded and used a batch of new pics for her LJ. Go check 'em out. It kind of looks like she went on vacation to the Land of Oz (for those who haven't read those books, each country in Oz is associated with a different color - the Munchkins love blue, the Gillikin Country favors purple, the Quadling country is into red, and the Winkies love yellow, and the Emerald City - what do you think?). So, she went to Munchkinland, to the Gillikin country and to the E.C. And you didn't bring me back a tee shirt? Hmph.

Seriously, love the new pics, Ash. The update is mucho welcome.


Oh, kewlness! I just saw some screenshots of the new Legend of Zelda game. Link actually looks adventure-ready, and not like some 5-year-old kid. Look at the other pictures on the site, too. It looks to be a beautiful games, on par with something we might see in Oz or Prydain.

Plans for today, and let's see if I can actually get them done (*SNAP*): Send out invoices to the E-bayers who bid and need to pay (actually had a fellow who paid for the Celtic Tarot right away!), and then write my story about Vorestia for ComStar. Maybe get some drawing done (No, I'm not sure how to, really, but I saw something in a book that might help me) - time to make my Wacom tablet earn its keep. Might figure out how to use the damn cartoon render option in Poser.

Might take a nap first...
