Well, I've been constructive.

I'm getting dreadfully close to having a first draft of my latest story done. I aim to get it done today, preferably before dinner.

I had a very productive day. Hit my fee goal at work today, finished delinquent letters for about sixty accounts, and finished checking our delinquent files to see that they've been documented correctly.

Still, though, I didn't finish everything I wanted to finish this weekend, so I'll be going in tomorrow morning for a few hours to hopefully finish up what I missed, and then I'm off to a different location. I feel like the region's collection whore. I'm getting passed around the region to get delinquency rates down pretty fast, for someone who has only been there for a month. Cheesy

So far I've managed to prepare 9 sets of fish and eyeball dissections for bottom Y10 to butcher, managed to repair the broken taps on the Kipps gas generator and built a Jacobs Ladder for a physics prac tomorrow... Not a bad start to monday morning.

Now all I need to do is find a way to step up the 5.5KV EHT unit we have to somewhere around the 10-15KV mark, all in the name of science!

I had a very productive day today. Got three rounds of calls done at work, a few reference calls done, and worked through my pile of files on my desk that was about the same length as my elbow to my fingertips, and it is now only a handspan tall. And my hands are tiny. I'm pretty pleased with myself. Grin

Today was actually fairly productive. Finished organizing all the files on my new computer (switching platforms is a pain but I'm finally back to Mac ) so I can start sorting and editing the 14,000+ photos that I took on my trip. Also went through my entire fabric stash to figure out what I have and sorted all my notions, trim, etc. Ended the day by reorganizing my metal- and leather-working tool box and getting a good start on sorting out and condensing all of my jewelry supplies. So yeah, overall pretty productive, especially considering the fact that I didn't get up till 11:30 '

Yes, actually! Put (most of) the finishing touches on a vacuum system that I and some colleagues have been building/rebuilding/restoring and got it running. I still need to add in a vent valve (once I find one... I have a T, just no valve to put on it) and I think the diff needs more oil in it (we're only getting 10^-5 Torr range, I was hoping for 10^-6). So, pretty chuffed. I did almost all the stripping down, cleaning and scrounging for parts, but got busy with other things (demonstrating, and working with a guy who is only here for a few weeks with whom I really needed to do some work...) when we got to reassembly, so I probably did about a third of that work, or less. Still!

I love vacuum systems. They are like Lego, but people think you're doing serious work! XD

Pleasantly productive.

Began work on a new tileset for NWN2 - an underwater outpost in (What I hope will be) a steampunky style.

Lots of different design roughs and shape blocking resulted in a firm direction and good progress, very fun, very productive!

Finally sorted out my hyperlinked sig banner! Yay! Cheesy
It'd been annoying me for days now, and Mr Romwell gave me some overly complicated code for it that wasn't working, some of which I had to strip out, but I did it without completely breaking it and voila! Success!!
Otherwise it's just the usual round of cleaning, and not long till the school run. With any luck I'll get my linen plus-fours at least half done by the end of today, and a chunk of the illustration for my next blog post.

Bought several things off The Bay of E, including a blue cloth Home Service helmet that was I was given a 2nd chance at as I was sniped in the auction.  Now about to visit my tailor to pick up a tropical service jacket I had altered to fit my 'comfortable' frame!

I visited two slaughterhouses.  This is what I am paid to do and hence it is by definition productive.

In a way, a slaughterhouse is a sorta-kinda steampunk environment, especially the older ones with their dim lighting and concrete floors and noisy machinery everywhere (I'm sorta dancing around mentioning the Victorian style pay scales, but...).  It doesn't seem likely they'll be a popular steampunk setting however.  I could set one up and go for the Grand Prize for Deadest MetaClub Ever...  Cheesy

Most of the slaughterhouses I've seen smell funny.

The one that didn't had been abandoned for a number of decades.

Erm, yeah, and when there's active slaughter going on "funny" is an understatement.  I've found plants by following my nose, and/or by the vultures circling above.

Sanded down and revarnished part of my model steam launch.  Now waiting for the one side to dry and harden before I can flip it and do the other.

As yet, I have been to the weekly carboot at the end of the road, and purchased an excellent set of vintage leather and elastic braces (the proper sort) for £2, and a roll of very old book sleeving for fifty pence. I am currently drafting a pattern for some ladies spats; photos forthcoming. For my lunch, I shall be making asparagus tart. However, at just past midday at time of posting, the day is still young!
