Origins Awards comments

I started writing a long response to mxyzplk‘s post about the Origins Awards here, but then thought to myself “Hey, this could be a blog post of my own!” so I’m posting it to my own much neglected blog as such instead.

Thanks for the kudos on Freeport! We are, of course, quite proud [...]

Book Expo

I’m off to Book Expo America and I won’t be back until after midnight Sunday. What are the chances that I’ll have time for blogging while I’m there?

I’ll do my best to update. Hopefully I’ll at least have some new restaurant experiences to share at least!


Kate is still in BC. I drive to pick her up tomorrow. Weather should no longer be an impediment.

My mom called my cell phone tonight and scared the crap out of me because she never calls unless there’s some horrible news (or it’s my birthday… whether that’s horrible news or not varies from year [...]

Deliveries: the continuing saga

Kudos to Macy’s! They gave me the date for my delivery up front. They called with the time the day before, just like they said they would.The delivery guys arrived on time and had my couch unloaded, in the house, and set up in 10 minutes. No fuss, no trouble. It’s exactly what I wanted, [...]

Busy Day

In addition to generally catching up on things work-related (or at least making some headway), I also: confirmed my brother is not dead in a ditch somewhere, just swamped with his surgical rotation made a dentist appointment for Kate (can’t get in until November 19th!) made a doctor’s appointment for Kate (needs immunizations updated) arranged [...]

Will it be month of no lunches?

Ah, 4:10pm and once again I’ve had no lunch. It’s not as bad as it could be, I guess, since I didn’t have “breakfast” until noon…

Preparing for GenCon is always insane for us but this year seems to be worse than usual. I was a very bad girl this weekend as I didn’t work [...]

Head above Water

Didn’t mean to go several days without an update but I’ve been a tad busy. I had to ask what day it was today as this weekend has been packed. PACKED. Good stuff, though, work and play.

Friday I managed to get a new four-level bunny condo built before picking Steve up at the airport. [...]
