Well, let me see...

I have two weeks to do five paintings for Mongoose. The roughs are done and approved, and I did one last night in a fit of madness--one down, four to go. (I have a niftily fat voodoo sea hag thingy with a screaming monkey to work on today that I'm looking forward to.) And two and a half more Fans! pages. Got one Digger done. And need to do some roughs for a logo design in the next day or two, and more on a heavy metal album cover.

Yeah, I'm busy.

Squirm War 2000 continued unabated in the bedroom, although James says they're retreating as things dry out. Diotomaceous earth is supposed to work on them, so I'll try getting some of that, whatever the heck it is, before we lay the carpet back down. All the other pesticides seem likely to kill the cat or the birds, or possibly both.

It's hot and humid. I'm not turning the AC on today, because I need to leave the windows open in the bedroom, and I'll be damned if I'm air conditioning all of Cary.

And that is the State of the Ursula today.

It would really be of great assistance if you did decide to air condition all of Cary, as I could really use a break on my AC bills this year.


Diatomecous earth is one of the niftier pest control substances -- used in China for 4,000 years. It contains microscopic not-quite fossil of diatoms (one celled critters), and comes from formerly sea water and formerly fresh water mud.

With just a little effort you can imagine attacking the centipedes and potential mold with the bones of microscopic dinosaur era stuff. This isn't quite right but close enough for amusement purposes.


I've been suggesting for a while that we need to replace air conditioners with Brownian ratchet systems that would turn heat straight into energy, but the physicists just keep rolling their eyes and telling me that I need to learn the 2nd law of thermodynamics better.

I say the physicists are in the pocket of the power generation companies.
