So I've spent a big chunk of the day supposedly trying to find and prepare new images, and nothing has clicked. At least I got one new one printed, and made another copy of the one that sold at Cap. (That Cap never paid me for. I missed getting my check in person, and it never showed up in the mail. Unless my evil twin collected my mail that day and ate it, or I put it somewhere extra clever and then the brain spiders ate all memory of it. But I've actually cleared through a fair bit of the mess in my office in the past few days and it didn't appear.)
So I've been flailing around trying to get the images I have into frames that aren't cracked. These Format document frames are cheap and simple, but they suck. You put them in your satchel and take them to a con and by the time you get there the plastic is cracked and the glass wants to fall out. Which Melissa told me was bad at Cap, so I checked them, and out of 10 existing frames I think 5 were bad. I don't have enough frames for 12 pieces, so screw it, you're going to get eight tigers in the show and nothing else. And then I finally get around to opening the art show forms Melissa emailed me, so I could actually have my control sheet filled out ahead of time like I was competent or something. Only it's a .DOC file. I do not open .DOC files I get through email with Word. I only open them with WordPad, for security reasons. And when I try to open these with WordPad, it crashes.
So I give up.
I hope everyone else's prep is going better. I hope nothing explodes tomorrow so I can get there in time to get the stuff in the show, eat, and maybe get to opening ceremonies. Definitely the concert. I'm sure it will be a great weekend. It always is. But right now I'm pretty burned out and frustrated and pissy about getting ready.
ETA: Oh, and I forgot to grouse that I haven't done anything about camera cases for my new kit. The 20D body with the battery grip does not fit in the small camera case. I haven't redone the foam in the big case, and I don't want to carry it to a con where I have no intention of using the big lens or the other body. So my camera isn't in a proper case for the weekend. Blrg.
