Organic produce often costs a little more, and looks a little funny. It does, however, taste a lot better, and it is better on your system. Trust a man who is 95% toxins on this. (et fix link)
I can't possibly be the only one who is looking forward to the Cake Channel* version of this. (Episode 43, where Warren chases that Bam! guy around the kitchen screaming, with a peeler, is sure to be an instant classic.

Speaking of All the Windwracked Stars, casacorona tells me that the first copies have arrived in-house at Tor, and should be on their way very soon to me... and to a bookstore near you. So woot.

And not only did I hear from my French translator for Carnival this week, which is a nice assurance that that is going forward, but arcaedia tells me that the Japanese publisher for the Jenny books sent money. And she tells me that she's forwarded Bone & Jewel Creatures to MonkeyBrain books, as previously arranged, and we're probably looking at a 2010 publication date for that.
And I wrote 1030 words on "The Tricks of London," and mean to get a few more tonight before I call it quits. Productivity rocks.
All in all, a pretty damned good day.
*Cake Channel, Hitler Channel, Dinosaur & Explosion Channel, Murder Channel, Dead Puppy Channel. Surely your cable provider offers these, as well?
