Mail: ARCs of Carnival (check your mail soon, leahbobet, allaboutm_e, clarkesworld, et al) which are *lovely* (they did me proud: four-color cover with a white border, yay!); contrib copies of Subterranean 4, which is also lovely, and my new cheeseboard! (er, that would be my Locus award plaque.) Which is quite pretty.
I feel very special today.

Today's words Word don't know: spasmed
Mean Things: another sympathetic secondary character bites the dust.
Darling du jour: he was struck by how her displayed slender throat, her open slightly-moving hands, should have seemed vulnerable but instead gave the impression of a lean, dozing predator.
Jerry-rigging: figured out that I could probably pack three scenes into one through use of an advanced stunt-writing technique... which actually makes structural sense.
There's always one more quirk in the character: André just grew up.
Other writing-related work: none
Books in progress: Martin Cruz Smith, Stallion Gate; Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice;

Things I'm glad I didn't go to my grave without: Jennifer Jackson on Romancing the Blog, regarding the village it takes to raise a b&^k.
The glamour!: I got spam from Lesa today.
...shit, she knows where to find me.
...shit, she wants to enlarge my penis.
