Started some portraits of the cast of Geek and Sundry’s ‘Dread’ Sagas of Sundry miniseries on Alpha as my convention sketches at Raleigh Supercon, and liked them enough to finish the series this week. From top left to bottom right: Ivan Van Norman as the storyteller, Matthew Mercer as Tanner, Amy Dallen as Raina, Taliesin Jaffe as Kayden, Satine Phoenix as Sat, and Amy Vorpahl as Darby.

Hell Yess! I’m a happy woman.

My crazy ass went running like 15 Mins after eating 900+ calories from Wendy’s. I don’t even care I ate Wendy’s lol.

I jogged 2 miles straight. The last part was up hill and I had to keep yelling at myself Don’t quit. But I fucking made it, on a full stomach no less. I ran a mile under 12 Mins too! So fuck yes. Anger does come in handy for something! Haha.

How was everyone’s day?? Hope all my geeky Fitblrs are doing well!

Finally, finally finished reading Chernow’s Hamilton biography. Heavy going, that book, especially since my knowledge of American history and politics of the time was minimal.

What I take from it is that Hamilton had a serious impulse control problem, Eliza was a much more active and strong-willed lady than I expected, the Reynolds incident paled in comparison to what a shamless and philandering lothario Aaron Burr was, everyone knew about Sally Hemmings but ignored it because Jefferson was Jefferson and some of the descriptions of John Adams could be applied to 45.
