I am annoyingly perky. I can tell, because I annoyed my husband. :)

We went to the gym this morning, see, and I swam a mile and exercise always perks me up. So I was kind of bouncing around the house getting ready to go out again and do errands (I have FINALLY sent all the books I was supposed to send! If I owe you one, and you do not get it by around the 22nd, please let me know!) and Ted said, “You’re *exhausting* me.” Oops. O.O :) But all this energy is good! I wrote my synopsis for the fifth Walker Papers! Yay!

Our nephews are staying with Mom and Dad for a few days. We went over to visit them, and I was entreated to draw something “better than a car” (I drew a covered wagon, but not the horses, and Breic then wanted to know how it *moved*) and then was attacked by Iron Man (aka Seirid) and protected by Wolverine (aka Breic). Then Seirid was fighting The Thing, who turned invisible! I said, “The Invisible Woman must be with him!” and both boys looked blank. “Don’t you know who the Invisible Woman is?” I asked. Nope, they said. “You know who The Thing is, right? And the Human Torch? And Reed Richards?” Yes, yes, they knew all of them. I was offended that they didn’t know who the GIRL was, although by the time I got through listing the other three Breic had clued in to who the Invisible Woman was. Whew. :) Rampant sexism in the comics industry averted! :)

My magnificent husband has made dinner, so I dash off to eat!

I owe you a letter. I just remembered. :(

Yay for exercise and perkiness.

Hee... I don't remember where I got it, but I adore it. It's now my default. It's so me, it's scary!

BTW- feel free to steal... just please give credit if I did.

Well, they are boys, they sometimes forget that girls even exist, except when the girl gets close to them with a dangerous case of the cooties.

I run into that all the time with my brothers, they forget the girl in nearly all situations. Perhaps it's only an idenitification thing.

This is why I felt I should remind them. :) Early counter-training!

Wait. You just *sat down* and *wrote a synopsis*? Just like that? Wow. Pod-Kit!

He said, tongue firmly in cheek.

It was very strange, yeah. :)

Hey, another person who swims a mile!

As for 'rampant sexism in the comics industry,' what else is new?-g Open any comic and look at the artwork. The women are always drawn a "certain" way, or as you say, they are totally invisible. Otoh, I'm a straight woman and I like Red Sonya, including the drawings of her (depending on the quality of the artwork). B

WOOT! I got my copy in the mail today! *happy dance* Though it shall set on my shelf taunting me until I finish my rough draft. Only at that point will I allow myself to read it. Srsly. I won't give in. Not even when it calls to me at night. :)
