Birthday greetings

Happy Birthday to me, unfortunatley my birthday this year is inbetween about a gajillion deadlines so if I do see fun it'll be from behind a book of some sort.
I could make a list of all I have to do but that sounds dull and long and only really interesting to fans of lists. It's been a lovely birthday so far, Daniel and my mam are taking me to dinner tonight, going for a film with Emma tomorrow and people are coming for breakfast on Saturday morning, an event my mother mysteriously wanted to buy beer for.
'Transamerica' came through Love Film yesterday and I'm fighting the urge to watch it. I have to promise myself that I should do work rather than sit here because everythings SO close to being finished surely it'll all wrap itself up. Surely.

I know most of the people who subscribe to this are comics people and not ceramics but what the hey? I'm sure you love me broadening your horizons and all that. In comics related news Daniel and I seem to be making headway with the podcast and the comic and aren't ripping each other to shreds which is reassuring. I'm trying to find a demo I bought ages ago at a Pelle Carlberg gig for the music and that anthology so I can facebook the songstress before the deadline, fingers WELL crossed on that.
I've been doing something totally out of my comfort zone at the moment, hot glass is grueling and incredibly demanding, but ridiculously satisfying. I'll lug out some photos of my 'wool' that I took in the Lake District, the brief was to make something based on objects made by roatations, head against desk moments ensued.
Illustration has been a real let-down. I'm used to going to class and learning skills, I'm pretty sure that's not a misnomer. Apparently in illustration it is, I'll leave with a little more confidence and a chip on my shoulder which wasn't the aim at all.
I'm looking for a summer project in ceramics at the moment. Daniel vetoed a month in New Jersey with Takeshi Yasuda and an anagama kiln so I'm looking for something else, no success yet but I'll keep you posted.
