Season's greetings! I'm wearing the socks stillnotbored sent me, with puppy dogs on them, and with them I am wearing my purple Chucks. Life proceeds. I am at work today. Alas.

Thanks, everybody who's been phoning in with in-the-wild sightings of Hammered. (Apparently we're faced-out in Calgary. Wait until they read book two. Heh.)

In other news, still no writing, although the barest tickle of the urge to write is there, slowly re-emerging. I'd like to write a short story or six, since inventory's a little low these days (not that I'm complaining), but my brain is still empty. Except this one dried pea that tends to rattle when I shake it.

I have a list of story ideas, though. I just have to get some plots and characters to go with them. Darn stories that require plots and conflict. Whose idea was that?

retrobabble and Sharon-who-has-no-livejournal are in town for the holiday. They dragged me (fighting all the way, I assure you) to the land of back massage, steam rooms, and long hot tub soaks yesterday. The only drawback to this plan is that at exactly nine fifteen last night, all those muscles in my back that are habitually tied in knots went "Wait a minute; we're not locked up! what's this?" and commenced to ache.

As a result, there was no real exercise yesterday, although we're going to try for some stretching today and see if we can prolong the benefits a little. (Posture! Posture!) And it has me thinking about women and community and single-gender space, which is all useful stuff for Carnival.

I suppose it's completely inevitable that I would grow up fascinated by gender roles, all things considered.

I feel nicely grounded. Huzzah for that! It didn't help with the getting out of bed at four AM part of my morning, although I did sleep well.

Wow, what a pointlessly self-indulgent post. I'm sorry. I'm really very boring, when I'm not writing. *g*


Congrats on the sightings of "Hammered" -- I'm keeping a looksee out for it over here as well. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy and read it :) Question... Are you signing copies, by chance? *ever the hopeful*
*g* If you send it to me with return postage, I will be *happy* to sign it and send it back.
Yay! Thank you! *hugs* Can we get that sorted in the New Year then, please? After all the rush?! Have a great Christmas! *hugs*
Drop me an email whenever you're ready. *g* I refuse to manufacture any rush for myself on the holidays, because I am a lazy git.
I might bring my (as yet unpurchased) copy to ACUS, if you are going to be there?

Barring a lottery win, probably not, much to my frustration.

Next year, hopefully.
Then perhaps if you send me your address, and I send you a copy in a SASE, you could autograph one for me, too? Please?
Just drop me an email!
I'm at work too. One of 3 people. But we get to go home at noon...woo hooo. Cuz it was so productive to get out of bed and come down here to eat elk sausage and crackers and read the paper. Happy holiday!
Mm. Elk sausage.

I had two springerle, and am resisting the rest of the plate heroically.

Alas, they actually expect us to work. The rest of the office gets a half day, but since I start so early and am part-time, it's just another work day for me. :-P
Oh, I'm sure they *expect* me to work...hee. I'll make bets that the phone doesn't ring more than once or twice today, and then it will be for the electric company of a similar name. I do have some paperwork to catch up, but that'll take half an hour tops.

What do you do, btw?
I write executive news summaries. It's stultifying, but I'm well-informed.
Heh. No job without benefits, I always say. :)
You get elk sausage, for example.

Wow, I'm hungry.

must... not... eat... junk.
Like that full couch icon. :grin:
It's an eight-foot couch. Scary, huh?

They have a rough life.
They're gonna be faced-out in Modesto too. The merchandisers won't *remember* facing them out...but once they see the pretty cover, I'm sure they'll realize what a good idea it was.

*rubs hands gleefully*

You are evil. But cute.

Odd how frequently those go hand in hand.
Sightings of Hammered: as soon as I see it in the London import shops I'll let you know!

the land of back massage, steam rooms, and long hot tub soaks yesterday
and a very nice world to visit, too.
