Al Stewart and Josephine Baker are following me around this week.

Got up, took the dog out, did some yoga (20 minutes of sun salutations.) Ate a food and started bread and did the dishes. La la la. Goal for the rest of the day: practice some guitar, and then finish this damned draft of Too Many Necromancers.

I shall not sleep before the draft is done. Even if it's just a slurry of bracket notes and WTF. Because I really have no clue how to finish this thing. I've got the wrong end of it somehow and I have to do a tricky trick and flip it around while making it look like I meant to do that the whole damned time.

In order to keep you entertained while I am engaged in Death Race 2011 (now with 111% less DavidCarradineandSylvesterStallone, not to mention horrid 70's eye makeup), I bring you the second half of "Boojum" from Drabblecast. With a second and equally nifty image of the Lavinia Whately.

"Boojum," Part One

"Boojum," Part Two

Teacup today: Green stoneware. Serious business requires a high-capacity mug.
Tea today: Upton's Sencha, Shizuoka #2; Upton's China Pre-Chingming Golden Monkey
