Going Fast While Standing Still
I am really -- let me repeat -- REALLY backed up. I have a ton of stories, etc, to re-read for the 'final final' anthology edits. I have to finish up two writers' groups' stories, am giving a looksee to two friends' stories (1 horror, 1 action mystery) and have to get out three (count 'em, 3) of my own shorts by next Friday.
Oh yeah and Lea Schizas of Apollo's Lyre tapped me for a chapter (on editing, imagine that) on a Writer's Common Book of Prayer (just kidding. That's not the name. Maybe it should be.).
And I am in the midst of the first black week at work. Yummy.
Sleet and ice predicted for manana, i.e., Saturday, and with it the possibility that Jenn's B.D. party at Dante's Down the Hatch will be totally fucked. I've not been to Dante's and am really hoping the ice goes elsewhere but it doesn't look like it right now.
Getting a new modem and signing on w/ another server. BS (aka BellSouth) just hasn't been doing it for me for a L-O-N-G time. And they cost soooo much more than they're worth, let alone what they're not doing!!
Saw "The Life Aquatic". It's fine, I mean it's Wes Anderson for all of that, and we know "The Royal Tenenbaums" was great. But Oscar noms? I don't think so. Read Del Tinsley's short short "Health Hazard" in AHMM's March '05 issue. Cute. A bit of a groaner, but decidedly punny.
Weather permitting, motorcycling Sunday. Or at least a trip to Claud's.
