Well yesterday afternoon was time for errands specifically the distribution of flyers for the annual Graphic Novel Panel that my chapter of the Graphic Artists Guild has been putting on for the past three years. With my targets being UDub’s art department as well as a student Graphic Novel club I go to occasionally. On the way I also stopped at the Ravenna Third Place Books as well.
At that point It was Seattle damp. I guess I shouldn’t have mocked it as a “hard mist” when I was talking to someone about biking in the rain because it started pouring soon after. When I got to the University I quickly got kind of lost. Not lost lost…. I know my way around the campus fairly well. It’s just all of the buildings in the Liberal Arts square all look alike to the point I end up going around in circles for about fifteen minutes until I identify the one that’s the Art Department. This time it was about fifteen minutes too many since the Department’s office closed a lot earlier that I thought it did so I wasn’t able to drop them there. I ended up making due with the Library as my drop.
After that I had about an hour before I had to go to the Graphic Novel Panel which involved heading over to my favorite hangout, the Dreaming, and then head back. Regrettably when I headed out again I found the key to my bike lock had bent in the lock so the lock was pretty much broken (so my bike was stuck to a railing) after a few minutes of panic I finally got the aid of the owner of a nearby bike shop who lent me some cutters (a charity I had mixed feelings about as for all practical purposes I’d asked him to help me steal a bicycle.) But anyway that was the end of the hectic insanity for the day, though I definitely needed my evening IPA more than usual.
Also it was kind of depressing how easy it was to cut the lock.
