So, who wants to explain to me what, exactly, an IPod is and why “it’s essential” that I have one?
In other news, the deck is roofed; the crew boss is due back on Monday (or Tuesday, or “early in the week”) to measure for the back-splash and install the pesky mini-blinds that refuse to acknowledge my dominion over themselves. I think we’ll hold off on the ceiling fan; the installation sounds like too much wear-and-tear on everyone at this point.
The house is very slowly coming back into something resembling coherence. I’m trying to sort out books, music, and knick-knacks that no longer give pleasure rather than mindlessly tossing things back where they were. This? Is harder than you might think.
And, yes — we are still working on Dragon Tide, which as some astute readers have noticed, is late. Our fault entirely, for not completely grokking how much the new order of bidness would affect the old order of bidness. We have kindly received an extension from Madame the Editor. And I’m busy cutting-and-pasting, foreshadowing, and laying in the subplot(s). This? Is also harder than you might think.
So, in a few minutes, I’m off to the Word Mines.
What’re you doing today that’s fun?
