Mr D has gone down to Devon for the weekend to catch up with some friends, so I have the house to myself, and I've been taking advantage of the time to do a few chores, and make a start on a commission of two miniature yorkshire terriers.
You know how every now and again, you embark on a creative job - art work or fic or video or whatever, and you just don't feel it? This is me with this picture. I'm poncing around with it for half an hour, then getting up to do something, then sitting down again... I don't know why, this one just hasn't grabbed me. The muse isn't co-operating and I can't lose myself in it at the moment. But, it's work; it's money, and I should be grateful for that.
In other news, Jus in Bello J2M double photo ops were released yesterday. Now, Jus in Bello has always been crazy mad when it comes to getting passes and photo ops, but this year it seems to have gone nuclear! Perhaps people think that because the show's coming to an end JIB will too - and of couse, that's very possible - and so everyone is just going all out for it.
The J2M single photo ops were released three weeks ago and the Jensen ones were all snapped up within the first second that they were released. That's right, you read that correctly; the first SECOND.
Jared's and Misha's all went very shortly afterward. Unfortunately, I missed out on a Jensen single which I was gutted about, (soneone sent the request for me as I was away from home that day, and they sent it bang on time, but it arrived just a nanosecond too late) but I did manage to get hold of a Jared and Misha op, so it's not all bad.
That's why I'm so hoping I'll get my hands on a double op - I've requested two - a J2 and a Jensen&Misha. Again, the organiser was overwhelmed with emails and they were all snapped up within a second or two. The lovely herminekurotowa sent my mail for me because I just don't trust my internet speed, and we've got the email to say that it arrived ok. The organiser tweeted last night to say that all photo ops were assigned and there were still over 200 emails left!!
Apparently, they're going to contact the people who didn't get anything later today, and maybe into tomorrow, so if I don't get one of those emails, then I've got at least one of what I requested, and I will get my Jensen squeeze after all!
So at the moment, I'm glancing at my email like it's a rabid animal, and every time an email pings up, I get a little palpitation. If I haven't got an email by the time the organiser tweets that all unlucky people have been contacted - then I can breathe again!
Honestly, the things I do for those boys!!
Ultimately, I know I'm lucky to be going to JIB at all so this is totally a first world problem - don't waste any sympathy on me! :D
But anyway, here's some gorgeous dorky boys, because you all deserve it!!
