January 4th, 2012


first you decide what you gotta do and then you go out and do it.

Tomorrow I get on an airplane for Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan... not necessarily in that order. I will mostly be visiting scott_lynch in scenic New Richmond, with side trips involving a certain truepenny and her mirrorthaw, and mrissa and alecaustin and markgritter and timprov and porphyrin and dlandon, and saladinahmed and colomon and, and, and... well, scores upon scores of my midwestern peeps. And a bonus jaylake!

And I shall be revising Shattered Pillars for submission. Because my vacation--or perhaps collapse--is over, and I need to get some work done now. Even though I would like another month of laziness in order to let my brain grow back after the insanity that was 2010-2011.

Perhaps I will see some of you at ConFusion?

There have been a couple of major milestones in the land of getting myself healthy and fit again. The Discipline is finally starting to reach its culmination. Collapse )

tl;dr: It's nice to be fit.

Also, winter has finally found Southern New England. Low today was 0; high today is 20. Gonna go make a pot of tea now. Also gonna go put a sweater on.

justice isn't something just anyone can afford.

So guys?

I am not a doctor, but given that about eight people I know in various areas of the Northeast and Midwest have reported some sort of awful puking thing in the past two weeks... I don't think it's food poisoning.

Hand sanitizer protocol is a go.

Just sayin'.
