Guess who actually rested?  
Yep that's right. Me. Well, mostly. At least I feel better than I did.

More Walktober Stuffs  
Massive photo dump. We toured a nearby town hall that was completed in 1873 and is still in use today as a town hall. There are 30 some photos here; most of it is historical architecture if you're interested in that sort of thing, but beware. Lots of photos.

How bigstockphoto.com and Shutterstock are screwing their customers  
Last month, without any warning, the stock photo service I've used for at least 10 years made a small, nearly-unnoticeable change that very efficiently sucks money out of their customers' accounts. They offer stock images in a variety of file sizes. Because I purchase them almost exclusively for use on the web, I have always bought the smallest and least expensive file size. For as long as I can recall, that was the size that was set as the default when I'd go to purchase an image. Sometime in September, that changed. I noticed that an image I was using on a blog post for a client was taking a really long time to upload. No wonder -- it was huge. I went and looked at my download history at bigstockphoto.com, and saw that every image I'd purchased for the...

First some of bear-Ianto at the matinee of The Sunshine Boys:

Sorry for the poor quality. This stage wasn't the best for getting photos, but you can see somewhat Ianto and the painting job sibling and I did for the set. T-- added in some cracks and peels on Wednesday I think which was lovely of her because stenciling takes a lot.

And behind the cut, photos of when we were at Huntington Homestead

Not just a long day, but a long week  
First a bit of ugly because my director is apparently far from done.

I have to leave in half an hour, but it's nice to think that soon we'll be done with this play. I'm super exhausted.

Tomorrow I plan to do nothing. Thinking about it, I think it might be the first true day off for me since the beginning of September. I went from being unemployed to working solely on this play. There might have been a few Sundays last month I had off, but I can't rightly remember anymore since this play has consumed so much of my time.

Sibling and I picked up some nice foods for tomorrow (starting with a nice breakfast -- roast beef from the deli to go in the eggs and nice home fries; homemade tomato sauce and pasta; some nice chicken for sandwiches) and I have some comic books that I'm going to catch up on. Or I'll read the cosy mystery I've been wanting to read for the last month plus. And fingers crossed that I'll get booked for work tomorrow.

(Fannish) Goals - recap for September  
On Day Three of [community profile] snowflake_challenge I set myself some goals for 2017, and here's what I did last month:

Post to one DW community I follow at least once a month.
Ah, nope. Nothing to show this month. I'm feeling bad about it, too, because there actually are some things I want to post about.

Make some fannish posts to my own journal at least once a month.
See above. Nothing to show this month, which is sad, because I do have some things I want to post about here, too. Hopefully this month!

Go to the gym or get some other exercise at least once a week.
Yeah, that went well I guess. *g* I walked and hiked a lot during my vacation, the longest hikes were a bit more than five hours. Of course, that might have been a bit too much for my foot...

Stick to my new financial plan, but try to save up money for traveling again.
Spent nine days in Scotland, yay! Now it's back to saving up again.

Other, fannish:
His user name is Allison.
His password is also Allison.
Still want him in your pack?

I laughed so loud I woke up my husband in the other room! Also, it's kinda hilarious how often Derek gets shot, stabbed, and beaten unconscious.
