I'm pleased to say that the tax situation is coming under control.

Tea today: Stash White Christmas
Teacup today: Wait Wait Don't Tell Me

I have two books to read today. Expect not to see me much on the internets.



Had kind of a creepy experience last night that led to talking to a nice police officer this morning before I had my tea. While driving home from netcurmudgeon and ashacat's house around 11, I noticed that a light-colored sedan was following me really closely. I stopped at a traffic light, and he stopped behind me--and a few seconds later he rolled up and tapped my bumper. In a manner that seemed quite deliberate.

I looked up and caught his eye in the rear-view mirror, and reader, something in my head said You have seen this movie. Leave. Now.

So, well, I left.

Last night and this morning, katallen and TBRE talked me into reporting it, making for my third encounter with the Manchester P.D. Who were, again, awesome and professional. And the nice officer told me that self-preservation is sometimes more important than getting the insurance information.

So there you have it.

I just finished reading an ARC of greygirlbeast's forthcoming novel. The Drowning Girl.

Guys, go preorder this sucker now. This is a masterpiece.

And in exactly the sort of creepy coincidence that so informs the structure of this book, just as I was finishing it, a complete amzing live version of Lindsey Buckingham's "Go Insane" came on Radio Paradise. A song that could be the theme for this book.

Anyway, amazing book.

In other news, it might actually be spring.

There are two cardinals in that photo. If you can't find the female, click through to the Flickr page. I "noted" her.
