it's a great life, if you don't weaken

  • Mood:

why does it come as such a shock to know that you really have no one?

I have accomplished insane levels of productivity today. To wit: polished off to-do list, finished lingering story, also answered an email interview, and got plenty of healthful exercise.

And I got my author copies of Asimov's. If you were wondering if seeing your name on the cover of Asimov's ever gets old?

It doesn't.

Things I did not do: watch Castle.

Maybe tomorrow.

Tomorrow is a Rest Day, more or less. Or more like an errand day.
