i held the future up to a looking glass. it bears a striking resemblance to the embers of the past.

Last night, somebody gave the puppeteer (evynrude)a giant hand-knit sock and a couple of almonds...

BEST DAY EVER!

This one still BOUNCES!

(It's slightly deflated on purpose, so he can pick it up.)

Ah, the moss-troll problem rears its ugly head. I find it extra-prickly in alternate or contrafactual history (which is why I gravitate to contrafactual history rather than alternate history), where one constantly must decide if there was a Luigi Galvani, or if we need something bloody else to call a galvanized nail.

Does Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. exist in the New Amsterdam universe? Indiana doesn't. But I really want a New Amsterdam cognate of Slaughterhouse-Five. So I'm going to decide he does, and grew up in New Amsterdam.

I'm also deciding that John Louis McAdam existed, because I'm too lazy to come up with another name for tarmac.

Yes, I really do think about this stuff. A lot.

she cannot sleep now. the moon is red.

2,600 words on ad eternum, bringing me to a grand total of 3,000. Tomorrow I have to write about a party you'd rather not be at, most likely.

It took all bloody day, but I like this. It's stately and sad, but that is not in this case a bad thing.

Tomorrow, I have to actually get out of bed on time, devil DST or no devil DST.
