I have reclaimed the Moby Smurfberry, and am only $652.19 poorer, which is something of a relief. Also a relief, you know, that I have gotten paid, and so can afford to have it repaired. I got lucky, and the break was behind the catalytic converter. Thank you, Moby Smurfberry!
I kind of lost this last week to post-con exhaustion, but I did manage to talk to the Clarion West people about my flights, and it looks like I will be attending the Locus Awards in Seattle the week before I teach. Also, I will be available to hang around with Seattle Peeps the week of June 28-July 3rd.
(cmpriest, pick a goth club nite or two! inaurolillium and glinda_w, I am planning on at least one day being yours. Likewise, kijjohnson. marykaykare, I am assuming we will find time to hang out? Also, I need to talk to you about schedules and so forth, and if your offer of crash space is still open and for what days, so I can make other arrangements if/where necessary. (I do not wish to be a burden to anyone!) scarlettina, we also need to schedule some time to bond over chocolate sundaes or something.)
Also, I just paid my money and send in my programming request for Worldcon, so it looks like barring catastrophe I will be going. 0.0 The foodstuff of Montreal quiver in fear.
Also, I really need to get back to regular productive work. I'm starting to have that sinking sense of "failing to justify my carbon footprint" again. It's awful and I hate it. Also, I suck at being unemployed. I need to write some of these books. Also, I really wish "Smile" would unpack itself. A lot. Thank you.
Okay, Monday I need to send back the page proofs for Bone & Jewel Creatures. I can't wait to see that one in print.
In other exciting news, my wonderful agent has tracked down some long-owed money, which will be helping defray the costs of the expedition to Montreal. Yay!
Write A Reckoning of Men (with truepenny)
Write "Smile" (Bone Garden) (started)
Write "On Safari in R'lyeh and Carcosa with Gun and Camera."
Sell something. Preferably One-Eyed Jack and a fat fantasy to be named later.
