No sleep til bloodbuzz

When it snows, it pours

It never fails, really… when I have no work, I have *no* work. When I do have work, I have boatloads. This is not a complaint, just a statement on the way things go in the freelance world. One day I’m counting pennies and eating Ramen Noodles. The next, I am still eating Ramen because […]
