Sometimes I'm a slave to self-imposed timetables in blogging. It's not healthy.
This week is a case in point. Last night I wrote a post welcoming new followers, but I'm not going to publish it until tomorrow, because it's a Wednesday Welcome. Now that's just silly.
The post on Daleks is the same. A fortnight ago I took advantage of one of Black Tree Design's rotating offers and ordered some Daleks. Last Tuesday, I got bored of waiting and wrote a post about them and what I'm going to do with them when they arrive. But I'm not going to publish it, until they arrive. Is that me being anal or superstitious?
Oddly enough, I ordered some more items from BTD today and have received a message saying they've been despatched. Why the long wait for the Daleks? One understands there might be delays sometimes if something has to be cast to make up an order, but Daleks are BTD's best seller - they know they can always off-load them - why don't they have a stockpile of them to hand?
I'm not complaining, just in a questioning frame of mind tonight.
The order I placed today was for my victim in the Secret Santa. I'm not sure I've done the right thing - he hasn't put a Wants List up ("surprise me!") - so I don't know. But it's ordered now, so he'll have to lump it if he doesn't like them. I'm having a crisis of confidence over the Santa Clause too. I that case it's because I'm inflicting my poor (and rusty) painting skills on someone.
I'm a little miffed about the Strange Aeons Kickstarter as well. It looks great and I signed up for it early. Now I'm going to have to pull out as I simply won't have the cash when it funds on Sunday. I don't like doing this, I know my bit of money won't make a difference to the success of the fundraiser, but it annoys me to commit to something and then put out.
