sleep comes like a drug

Ooof. So far today: got up at 3 am for an eclipse that I only got to watch on the internets, but was still pretty fabulous. Read part of a Discover. Made white bean chile verde enchiladas, which we will be eating for the next couple of days. Checked at the place for car emissions, where there was a sign on the door that said "Back in 1 Hour" with no start time. Went to the grocery store and the spice store. Checked in at the emissions place an hour later. Waited for half an hour for the guy at the emissions place to come back anyway. Gave up. (Yesterday when I showed up two hours before closing, he had apparently gone home for the day. Starting to wonder if he has a heroin habit.)

It's either third try's the charm or three strikes and you're out, as I have to have this done by year's end.

Came home. Discovered edit letter for Range of Ghosts. Walked dog. Made pumpkin bread cake and hot cocoa. Drank cocoa while waiting for pumpkin bread cake. Did something stupid and spent the next fifteen minutes answering twitter DMs. Yes, I suck.

Now I need to stop being stressed out because I suck and get my head back in the game for the edit letter. Which I need to start working on as soon as I eat some pumpkin bread and another bowl of enchiladas and rice.

Apparently, Subterranean has found some additional copies of Seven for a Secret in the back of a warehhouse somewhere, so those are available through them again. (and a good thing, too, as I just ran out of book sale copies [Book sale still ongoing for other things, however]).

And now I need to go put on another layer, because the sun just went down and I'm out of cocoa. Oh, and I have the page proofs of "King Pole, Gallows Pole, Bottle Tree" (forthcoming in La Datlow's Naked City anthology) to get through.

Man. I wonder why I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day.


Hooray! I somehow missed the chance to order Seven for a Secret the first time, so ordering it now makes me happy (and I don't think I have a pre-order for The White City, so I can do that now, before I forget again).
Heh. Just several people helpfully pointing out my error.
I drove towards breaks in the cloud cover and ended up watching the eclipse from the parking lot of the mall nearest my house since it was well centered under a big hole in the heavy clouds. :)
Just so you know, the twitter mistake prompted me to go read the wiki and that prompted me to catch up on the message board. Then I was inspired to re-read Dexterity and related content. So it turned out to be a very fortuitous mistake for me. I wouldn't mind it if such "mistakes" became regular features.
white bean chile verde enchiladas

Ooooh. Any chance to get the recipe?
There's no recipe.

I cooked some white beans with onions, bay leaves, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper. Made enchiladas with that and brown rice. Dumped some chile verde I made last summer on top. (Chile verde: tomatillos, garlic, chilis, onions in the oven in a roasting pan until they smell awesome, cool, dump in a blender and then preserve as you will)

Cheese and bake.
Thank you for passing word about Seven for a Secret. I, too, missed it the first time around, and despite my desire to support my (not-particularly-)local Bear, I couldn't convince myself to pay $65 for a copy. However, you sold all of your copies at the price you were asking, and I get the book anyway, so all is good. Yay!
I was going by the prices on ABE. And yeah, it's a bit steep....
We are mighty. And I need to get off elljay and fix this chapter.
