Awkward No From SciFi.com
After getting home from work this evening (I had to trade some reference desk shifts around to clear my schedule for the time I'd miss; as a result, I'm working Monday night instead of my usual Thursday), I found a 21 day rejection from SciFi.com. It's your basic say-nothing rejection, and quite likely a form, but it certainly didn't read like it. It's very short:
Thank you for sending your story to SCIFI.COM. I'm afraid we don't feel we can use it for our website. Sorry.For some reason that second line sounds a little odd to me. Incidentally, as you may recall, tomorrow is my surgery. Time got pushed back to 3:45, so a couple hours before my parents are going to come over and go with me and Lisa to the hospital. They'll sit around for a few hours, then take me back in my anesthesia addled fog. Very exciting for them, I'm sure. I'm feeling quite relaxed about the whole thing, by the way. My only complaint is that I didn't have any caffeine today (supposed to keep hydrated), so I've got a bit of a headache. Feh.
