SSU Subraces: Quail Harpies by EmperorNortonII
SSU Subraces: Quail Harpies

This is number 376 in the "SSU Subraces" series, featuring offshoots of the races appearing in the "Sleepy Stories" comics by myself and :iconnayzor:Nayzor
Quail Harpy- Quail harpies are a peaceful race of harpies. They wear skimpy tops made of feathers and have a distinctive feather topknot. Quail harpies live in forests, but they also enjoy visiting cities. Quail harpies are a passive race who love to sleep and chirp their snores loudly.
Next Subrace: Rainbow Balrogs

SSU Subraces: Syrian Loxodons by EmperorNortonII
SSU Subraces: Syrian Loxodons
This is number 375 in the "SSU Subraces" series, featuring offshoots of the many races appearing in the "Sleepy Stories" comics by myself and :iconnayzor:Nayzor
Syrian Loxodon- Syrian loxodons are an Arabian race of loxodons. They have tan skin and wear scant Arabian-style bikinis and navel gems. Syrian loxodons love to belly dance and sunbathe. Many live in harems and oases. Syrian loxodons love to sleep, trumpeting their snores loudly with the pregnant ones snoring the loudest.

SSU Bios: Chortoiads by EmperorNortonII
SSU Bios: Chortoiads
This is number 502 in the "SSU Bios" series, featuring the many races set to appear in the "Sleepy Stories" comics by myself and :iconnayzor:Nayzor
Chortoiad- Chortoiads are a race of nymphs who tend vegetable gardens and fields. They are the cousins of hamadryads. They have green hair and skin of many colors. They wear bikinis made of leaves. Chortoiads are a gay and carefree race, and love to gossip with farmers and other nymphs. They have many good-natured contests to see who can grow the largest and tastiest vegetables. Chortoiads love to sleep and, like all nymphs, they snore very loudly. Pregnant chortoiads snore loudest of all.
Next Bio: Graveolans
QuickDraw SF Sketchgiving by EmperorNortonII
QuickDraw SF Sketchgiving
Here are some things I drew last night at QuickDraw SF at F8.  They called the November session "Sketchgiving," and there was a theme of food for the art to post.  So these are the images I came up with.
SSU Subraces: Storm Giantesses by EmperorNortonII
SSU Subraces: Storm Giantesses
This is number 374 in the "SSU Subraces" series, featuring offshoots of the races appearing in the "Sleepy Stories" comic by myself and :iconnayzor:Nayzor
Storm Giantess- Storm giantesses are the cousins of cloud giantesses. Like them, they live in castles in the clouds. Their bikinis resemble skimpy puffs of clouds, and they have sky blue skin and white hair. Storm giantesses are more serious and responsible than their cousins. The goddesses of the world count on them to deliver rain when it's needed, and keep floods and droughts from occurring. Storm giantesses take their job very seriously, but they can still have fun. They are among the few who are aware of the existence of angels. Storm giantesses also get along with nepheles and other aerial races. Storm giantesses spend most of their time sleeping. Their snores sound like thunder and lightning. Pregnant storm giantesses snore as loudly as a hurricane. 
Next Subrace: Syrian Loxodons…

Well, gang, after a decent amount of time, my latest temp assignment is over.  At first, I had plenty of work to do.  There were six of us on the team: three of us were prepping files to be scanned, the other three was scanning the files.  Then by the last week of the assignment, the files we had to prep thinned out.  On Tuesday, things slowed way down.  That day, we had to clear the files from the desk where we was working by 11 AM.  Since the supervisor, Jonathan, had a lot of work to do with the files before we could prep them (like looking up the employees), and wouldn't be done any time soon, we got the afternoon off.  Then yesterday, we had to vacate the area we were working by 10:30, because of a big event happening at the company.  Well, Jonathan wasn't going to have files done for us.  Our part of the assignment was pretty much finished, so we got a half day's pay for that, so he walked us out and thanked us for our service.  I wouldn't have minded an extra day or two on the assignment.  but on the whole, it was a good experience.  Jonathan said we were one of the best crews he's worked with.


n Tuesday, I had signed on to volunteer at an event hosted by the Friends of the S.F. Public Library.  It was a fundraiser for the library.  I thought I wouldn't be able to get to it before 4 PM.  But the way work went that day, I was able to make it early enough.  Anyway, the event was called "Branching Out," a classy affair with cocktails, activities and an auction.  So before the event started, we helped set up, making the décor.  There were some fake trees with donation envelopes hanging from the branches.  So we made those envelopes, putting them in library card pockets and cutting lengths of string.  We also assembled goodie bags for the guests.  Then Donalda, the head of volunteering, said there was a project for creative types to oversee.  Of course, I had to jump on it!  Later, I found it was a "fingerprint tree."  I was at a table with another volunteer, and we had a canvas with a painting of a leafless tree on it.  And there were some green pads.  People were to press their fingertips to a pad, and put a fingerprint on the tree to make leaves.  This sort of thing is apparently a popular activity at weddings (that's what we heard from some of the people).  Other tables in our area had things like a 3D printer on display, a button maker and a photo booth.  Later on in the evening, we were spotters at the auction.  We had a few interesting things on the block.  The highest selling item was a power lunch foursome with former S.F. mayor Willie Brown.  Bidding was pretty fierce!  In the end, there were two winners, who both pledged $5,000!  So volunteering there was a pretty nice experience.
