things to say  

I have a lot of political posts warring in my brain to be written and not much actual will to write them right now, it seems. I guess in another couple weeks I’ll see if I still want to say them.

In the meantime, this is a good body image campaign.

Ten days to go on the Fantasy Fudge Fundraiser and $1077 to make me write a story about Joanne attempting to make fudge. :)

After running out of ink and getting a new toner cartridge, my printer has started jamming on hideously wrinkled pages. After consulting the internet, I have taken its guts apart and discovered that the, uh, toner roller, or something, roller is, as the internet suspected, wrinkled. I have not yet concluded whether it can be unwrinkled or if it has to be replaced, but it’s putting a big, uh, wrinkle, in my plan to print up a 200 page manuscript for proofing. Argh, sez I; argh twice.

My MAGIC & MANNERS patrons have caught up to me and I honestly have no idea when I’m going to get ahead again. Not this month, unless a miracle occurs. Probably September, assuming all goes well. Which hardly ever happens. :)

Gabra Zackman starts to record the audio book of SHAMAN RISES today!

Ted and I are watching The 100. The worldbuilding in it is appalling. The story is apparently interesting enough, because we keep watching, but my *God* the worldbuilding is bad. I barely go an episode, HALF an episode, without wincing over it internally and frequently commenting externally. It makes me want to write my own post-apocalyptic dystopian young adult series with *good* worldbui–oh wait, I’m shopping that around right now, I remember. :)

Um. I guess that’s all for now. Except my thinks to do list so I remember the thinks to do on it.

- print up & proof STONE’S THROE
- catch up on M&M
- make many cakes
- go to shamrokon
- finish nephew’s book
- make green tea cupcakes
- go to la fanu birthday party
- type up & post MPOC’s fic

Gabra Zackman does a great job! In addition to the print copies, we have audio copies of all the books.

I watched approximately half of the first episode of The 100.

I said to myself, "Ok, is there anything else I like about this show than some of the scenery? Oh well the premise is interesting, kind of. I liked some of the adults on the station, I thought that was interesting. Hm. Yeah. Not enough."

It was nice seeing you at LonCon, and that fudge of yours was delicious. I've just (while writing this comment) signed up for the indiegogo campaign, and brought it above 4k. Just $902 more to go...

...but there are only $530 worth of fudge left to order, it will be hard to reach $5k. :-)

Oh, gosh, the last 2 pound one that was previously available got bought! Was that you? :) I'm adding 3 more of those, so it's just enough to go over $5K if people buy them. :)

Yes, that was me. Yummy, yummy, yummy, there'll be fudge in my tummy...
