I got my first professional check today--a $40 comp from Capricon. I put a Xerox of it above my desk to remind me on dark nights that I am worth something. Damn, that reminds me, I need to talk to the folks at Duck and Denvention to see how much I can get in front of people at those cons. Cheron and I are going to talk with everyone else tonight about maybe going to Marcon, too.
Oh, yeah, the other thing: They finalized my pension and I'm getting $244 more per month after taxes than I was originally. Just put the check in the bank and we should get $1200 of our stolen money back from the Feds next week. Worldcon's taken care of.
