Looks like a friend of kendwoods had some virus trouble with the are-you-damned quiz.

I seem to be clean, but I'm running a virus checker anyway, and I recommend you do too. I guess that's my last meme.

I somehow spent a very long time explaining 'fabulous reality (with special emphasis on The Man From UNCLE)' over here, completely taking over poor dinahmt's comments section. Er. Sorry about that.

And I might get to see Bubbahotep tonight. If all goes as planned.

The Disease has entered Stage 12--sore throat and sneezing. Such is life.

Ready. Steady.

My hair is clean. The cat is waxed. The tea is hot. I have snacky thing.

It's December 11th, 2003, 2:00 PM Pacific time.

I'm starting the final draft of Scardown at mark.

I am calling in sick to work tomorrow.

Guilt gorilla or no gult gorilla.

I have blogged it. Thus it must be true.

20 pages of Scardown edited. I stopped because I have a fever, and I feel like hell, and I am very very tired. Also, I got to the place where I need to insert the first chunk of new text, and I am not in any shape to write it.

Still. 20 pages down. That's a 20th of the manuscript.

This is only the third time I've worked on a manuscript that was already sold to do more than minor line edits, and the first time I've done it on a novel. It's sort of an interesting feeling. Interesting good, in an I-am-slightly-uneasy-because-I-really-want-Anne-to-like-this-but-confident-I-can-do-this-now-that-I-have-started.

We will see how long that lasts.
