more distro stuff  
so far, so good. have designed the flyers and most of the website for the distro so far; all that is left is writing up information for the site, particularly regarding submitting zines for consideration. i'm really quite happy about how it is all turning out at the moment; of course, the test will be getting the word out there about the existence of this distro. but considering it was only even 8 days ago that i had this idea to do this, i think the inital planning stages are forming together quite nicely.

when i get an idea stuck in my head, i don't want to stop until all the wheels are in motion. people say, don't jump into ideas too quickly, but the thoughts claw at me until i do. i am the happiest when i'm working on something productive and being able to develop an idea into something real.

i was planning to use tuesday as a beginning-to-distribute-flyers-around-town day; but i think i'll wait until i can copy the pages instead of printing them all out on my printer. the photocopier @ work just seems to give things a more professional look. everything comes out shiny; i was really quite impressed the first time i used the colour function. although it's going to take some mastery (or sneaking at least) to sneak all these copies in; i'd like to get 1000 flyers at least (250 pages worth). but we'll see how it goes. sneakier things have happened.

&thankyouthankyouthankyou to the lovelies who are allowing me to mail out flyers to distribute around your areas -- i haven't replied to your emails or comments (eep) but i am much appreciative, believe me. i'll start copying the flyers on wednesday, and hopefully have enough to start mailing out envelopes to you - don't worry, there won't be too many; i am just so grateful to have people to send these to, to start with the promotional period. promotional? advertising? oh -- whatever.

i've done other things this weekend so far (4 days off - yeah !); but they kind of fade in comparison to my thoughts about what else needs doing with the distro right now and how i could word advertisements and webpages. you might say i'm preoccupied at the moment and i really do have a one track mind; but forgive me, it really does wear off once all the initial plans are set. i just get caught up in excitement and productivity, but i daresay you'll see a return back to normal in the next few weeks. really. it's never permanent and thank goodness, or else i'd never sleep. just ask alex_faerie ;)

i think it's awesome to see you this way, Jade... so happy and excited about something! how cool is that, a zine distro. I used to write zines in high school. I often think about doing one again, I guess I've just been lazy about finding the time to put one together... maybe sometime soon I will. ;)

Welcome to Sarahs handy hints for sneaking things in and out of the office without people noticing =) As for photocoping stuff I always found that the best time to do "dodgy" work practices are when the post people are out of the office [ie before and after work and lunchtimes] ... Also stick the flyers in between photocopying you have to do anyway and feed it through 1 page work and 1 page you etc so that if someone catches you then it just looks like you are doing work stuff =) Just as long as your photocopier doesn't have one of those tracking buttons where it logs who photocopies what - then you just borrow someone elses code *laughs* YAY!

[ps - Please remember that if you would like stuff in black and white printed at all I do have the "government funded" printer that is free to use!!]
