I think this Meisha Merlin ad ran in the Valentine’s Day 1999 edition of Romantic Times. The same ad ran in the SFWA Bulletin and a well-meaning colleague told us that we might want to “tone down” the romance-thing in the ad, so as not to offend the membership.
In other news, I believe I’ve had better days. I thought filing would be a nice, soothing-in-a-boring-way activity. That was before I had to put all of Socks’ vet records and bills and stuff away. I briefly considered setting fire to the office, then thought that I’d probably regret that later, and maybe I should just throw everything away, instead. That’s still on the table, but there doesn’t seem to be a dumpster company open today. Maybe I’ll change my mind on the overnight.
