So I slept two hours later than I normally do, paid bills, did the dishes, went to the bank, got my plane tickets squared away for the trip to Minneapolis and Toronto (eee. That was not cheap) and generally failed to do any writing at all for a good five hours this morning.
I think the fever may have cooked my brain.
Fortunately, I had words from last night and this afternoon to claim.
And I am joining Leah in invoking the Voodoo. Mekka lekka hai, mekka hiney ho.
Saturday is world juggling day (via tiggerbone). I actually do juggle. Poorly.
hal_duncan has a livejournal. and a kickass story up at Strange Horizons this week, . All y'all slash fans on my reading list will like that story, by the way. And it's nice to know I'm not the only pro writer around absconding with fanfiction tropes, stuffing them into my pockets with candystore abandon.
