Everything I’m reading about the implementation of list- and outline-numbering in Microsoft Word is leading me to believe that there is no practical way to implement a truly automated comic book writing template for that program. I may already have taken the project as far as it can go in Word. One article *on Microsoft’s […]

Weekly Weigh-In & Suicide Note #3

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007

Starting weight: 215 Previous weight: 205.5 Current weight: 219 (No, that’s not a typo; it’s the fucking prednisone. In one week, I *gained* 13.5 pounds. If my apartment weren’t on the first floor, I’d be jumping out a window right now.)

Comic Book Script Template, etc. Mostly etc.

Very tired, so this will be short… The way to make the Word Comic Book Script Template work is, I think, with a list-numbering scheme. It’s both much simpler and more frustrating than I realized. The setup is a bit crazy, because list number styles in Word are apparently *document*-based rather than *template*-based. They don’t […]

Bad Diet Week

One word: prednisone. Inflammation in the lungs. I’m dreading Wednesday morning’s encounter with the scale.

Word Comic Book Script Template — Progress?

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

Maybe. The past few days, between pages and panels, I’ve been investigating an area of Microsoft Word that I never completely understood: its outlining and numbering functions. It was reassuring to discover that the *reason* I never understood these functions is that they operate in a very odd and anti-intuitive manner. They’re easy enough to […]

Starting weight: 215 Previous weight: 210 Current weight: 205.5 (These first pounds are the easy ones, of course. I’ll be astonished if the weight loss continues at this pace.)

I Passed

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

The angiogram actually went normally. No new blockages. Nothing untoward. That *should* be the last obstacle to my getting on the transplant list. Phew. (BTW, my editors at DC are dubious about Killhead.) (YOU won’t be!) ( … ) (…most of you.)

11 Winks, Tops

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

All of Wednesday was consumed with a computer crisis. Solved, finally, I hope. Now it’s nap time, soon to be followed by the ever-popular wake-up-shave-shower-get-dressed-stagger-to-car-drive-to- hospital-get-catheter-shoved-up-groin-time. With luck, everything will go normally (yeah, right) and I’ll be released immediately after the procedure. Just in time for my therapy group. [NOTE: This concludes the “It’s All […]

All Hollowed Eve

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

Boo to you, and happy anniversary to my ex. Think I’ll go fuck a ghost in celebration. (Nah, not on the eve of an angiogram. No candy corn, either. Gotta stay in training.)
