#423: Refresher Course

December 14, 2009

Notes from the Manager

The Kickstarter funding period has ended — with an astonishing last-minute bang, bringing the total to $13,194.50 in pledges. That does not mean I'll get all of it, mind you; many peoples' credit cards have errored out or are still being processed.

Approximately $12,500 of the pledges have already been successfully processed, so there's nothing major to worry about — but, if you have recieved a notice from Kickstarter asking you to update your credit card information, please do so quickly! If your payment has not been processed by December 18th, it will be cancelled — you'll lose access to the backers-exclusive posts and obviously you will not receive your pledge rewards.

I did draw the winner of the "Win a Job at the Multiplex 10 Cinemas" contest already, though: ANGIE BOOTH… which is a perfect last name for someone working at a movie theater, come to think of it. Congratulations, Angie! Angie the Second will pop up at the Multiplex 10 some time in the spring or summer of 2010, after the print collection has gone to press. First things first!

For any questions about what's happening next with the book, keep your eyes peeled on the Kickstarter Updates page, or the Multiplex: Book 1 Progress Report box below!

2015-11-01 14.15.23

Thank you very much for the outpouring of kind words since last Friday. It meant a lot to me, and I’m happy to say that I have great news: things may not be quite so bleak as I thought last week.

For some background, since I haven’t shared much of this publicly, my cat Punk very nearly died in September from a urinary tract infection. A slew of medicines turned things around after a rough couple of weeks, and he had two great weeks but then relapsed. As it turned out, the strain of infection he had was resistant to the antibiotics he was on, so he had to go on some new meds.

Because he wasn’t back at 100% (as close to 100% as an 18 year old cat with three chronic diseases gets, anyway), the recovery this time was very, very hard on him. Punk had to be taken to the emergency room last Wednesday evening, then he wasn’t handling the pain medication they prescribed very well — or eating, except when I would spoon feed him baby food — so I was… in a very bad headspace last week.

With non-stop attention and some tweaks to his medication dosages, he began improving steadily on Friday evening, started to eat on his own and seek out my company on Saturday, and he even meowed for the first time in two weeks on Sunday.

If this keeps up, this will be the third time he’s cheated death (last month, and a bout with pancreatitis a couple of years ago), but I’m still nervous about him relapsing yet again. There’s also the very real possibility that there is something else going on behind all his recent troubles…

But… he’s a tough little guy, and he’s had a great couple of days,which is very encouraging. He has even managed to get back to work on the strip with me (pictured above!), and we’ll hopefully be able to keep at it.

The Multiplex update schedule may be a little erratic for the next couple of months. If that happens, hopefully it will be because I need more time to finish my MFA thesis, not another downturn in Punk’s health. Either way, thank you for reading, and thank you for all your support — financial, emotional, and… egotistical?
