So far today, I have successfully constructed three book-cases and a desk. There's a lamp left to go, And a small mountain of boxes to unpack.


Ace the Wonder Dog has been "helping." Unfortunately, he and the Complaint Department had a fairly serious altercation yesterday (no blood was spilled, but they sure scared me half to death) and so I'm having to keep them separated for the nonce, which means he's having to sleep in his crate. Alas! Well, if we cannot use our privileges responsibly, they will be taken away.

I think I've earned a beer. And hey, it's lunch time! But first, time to take the dog outside and throw his ball for him for fifteen minutes.

Tonight, by the way, at 7 pm EDT, I'll be participating in an IRC chat hosted by #AbsoluteWrite on StarChat, for anybody who still remembers how to IRC and wants to stop by and visit.

Other things I need to do, although possibly not today:

Brush the dog
Put books away
Wash the kitchen floor
  • Current Music
    Eurythmics - I Need A Man
  • Tags
froud magician

hey you! don't touch that!

Phew. Okay, I think that's all the boxen of books unpacked, and homes found for them. And there are even a few empty or lightly stocked cubes, though you would think that having just bought three new bookshelves would have meant that there would be more than just a few.

In any case, the only think left to unpack are a few boxes of random phneh, and since I haven't any idea where most of that is going to live, well, I'll just have to sort that out over the next couple of days, I guess. I think I need a junk drawer. Or maybe a junk closet. Or maybe I need a big garbage bucket. *g*

In any case, so tired now.

Good mail today, as not only did the CEM for By the Mountain Bound arrive, but so did a royalty check for Blood & Iron--five whole dollars, and seventy-four cents. Which means it's sold through the advance, finally, which is excellent news. Also, it means royalty season is upon us, which means maybe another check or two will follow.

In other words, huzzah!

The dog did not get brushed and the floor did not get washed, but a great deal of other work happened. Tonight is going to that chat and then I'm going out dancing with rikibeth, so now tomorrow's honeydew list looks like:

brush dog
wash floor
write a scene or two of One-Eyed Jack & the Suicide King
start reviewing the By the Mountain Bound CEM
unpack a box
fill out customs forms for the lingering international booksale shipments (I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I had to unpack more boxes to find them, they're really really going out this week)

Let's see how much of it I get done.
