Feel The Love

My thanks to everyone who sent us their best. The good vibrations have set the house a'rattlin'. Or possibly it's the cats running up and down the hall, but I doubt it.

In a related note, almost everyone of my coworkers that I've told about our good news has then said that I need to be sure that Lisa doesn't clean out the litter boxes anymore, due to the nefarious toxoplasmosis.

Of course, Lisa has never cleaned out the litter boxes in all the many years we've owned cats, so I can't really see her starting now. But I assure them she won't all the same.

At any rate, the rest of the holiday went swimmingly, despite a 45 day rejection from Strange Horizons in there. Relatives hugged, food devoured, parade and football watched.

Reading: Haven't reported on this in a while. Most of what I've been reading could fall into one of three categories: aliens (Where Is Everybody?: Fifty Solutions to the Fermi Paradox, by Stephen Webb), babies (The Expectant Father, by Armin Brott and Jennifer Ash), and archery (Traditional Archery, by Sam Fadala; Archery: Steps to Success, by Kathleen Haywood and Catherine Lewis). Ideally what I need is a book that combines these interests for maximum efficiency. For example, a book on archery for alien babies, or alien archery for babies. But not baby archery for aliens. That's just silly.

Oh, there's been a few other things in there. John M. Jeffrey Ford's The Physiognomy, a fine example of the New Weird, without a doubt. Currently reading Salt, by Mark Kurlansky on a recommendation from the lovely Ms. Viehl. But in honor of today, I went out and picked up a copy of The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl, by the one and only Tim Pratt. Should be fine reading, yeehaw.
