Hump Day busyness

Finished working on the APAzine and the cover, stuffed it into a thumb drive since I was out of black ink, and headed out to take care of business. Unfortunately, printing the zine was a painful process that made me wish for a moment that I'd just gone to Kinko's, but eventually the zine and covers were done and I cashed in my Staples Rewards voucher so that the whole deal (OK, except for the covers) was free.

It wasn't until I'd sent the whole package off to Judie, who is wielding the Velveeta baton this month while Jeanne is off slacking at the Worldcon, that I realized I'd forgotten to pick up more ink for my printer. :(

I then had some great hummus and an equally horrible shawirma (PICKLES???) at the Mediterranean joint across from the Post Office, and headed home by way of the Harris Teeter, where I indulged in a pork BBQ sub to get the taste of that shawirma out of my mouth. I suspect I won't be having much in the way of dinner tonight. Along with the sub, I picked up some pork steaks, two pounds of ground beef for $1.99, and some organic yogurt which hopefully won't taste like dreck. At two for a buck it won't be a big loss if it is.

I may be going out later (after the rush hour!) to get the black ink and pick up some vampire hunter novels by Julie Kenner, who seems to have gotten a decent run of "Buffy as Soccer Mom" books onto the market. I remember looking at the first one a few years back but not doing anything about it; tonight we'll find out if my gut reaction was right.
