Treasure Island

To take my mind off how bad this week has been, I sat down and started putting together Treasure Island. I stitched all the signatures together and now it's sitting on my table awaiting pasting and shaping of the spine. I'll post some pictures when I get around to feeling like it.

How Is It Possible?
Last dog watch, 3 bells (7:47 pm)

Two days ago, I wouldn't have believed I could have a more difficult day at work. Somehow I managed to experience one…the very next day! I had a terrible day right after a really bad day, which doesn't make me very happy.

We had a bunch of people over last night, too. When I got home, I stomped around for a while, then went to my bedroom, turned off the light, and just laid there in the gloomy silence. I felt a lot better after about an hour or so.

When people started arriving, I no longer felt like caving their heads in with the nearest blunt instrument.
