also, a hummingbird looked in the living room window today.

Okay. Yeah, you can tell I've been traveling--and not writing much--because this blog is starting to look like a derelict ship listing to port.


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!

Woohoo! *puts that week on the calendar*
Sweet. I might finally get to stalk *ahem* meet you! If I'm not zombified by my first Worldcon experience first, that is...
Hurrah for agents who track down money! And also hurrah for Bone & Jewel Creatures, even though the vagaries of publishing are such that it's still a long way from showing up at Local Independent Bookstore.

A small boo, however, for hopelessly mangled honeydew lists. (I really hope that the co-author of A Reckoning of Men isn't that bunch of mismatched HTML tags. And who knew that there was actually an LJ user named write?)
I think this where I say "bite me, fanboy."

Whatever day you and inaurolillium work out will be fine for me, just let me know a couple/few days ahead so I can save up some of those metaphorical spoons...


...actually, we should try to avoid that.
*hysterical laughter*

*makes mental list of people to share that with*

(but yeah, not a good plan, should leave one or two at the end of the day...)
I really, *really* need to buy my WorldCon membership. Because there's no way I'm going to miss the biggest party of the year when it's in my own town. Paralyzing fear of large crowds and spoon juggling be damned.

And re. Bone & Jewel Creatures: Yay!
