you all rock. :)

You all totally rock. I'm going to send in all your suggestions and comments when I submit the proposal for SBX4 and see what my editor thinks. There are a lot of really cool ideas that've been suggested, stuff I can make work on all sorts of levels, and I have *no* idea what I'll end up with, but I have a place to *begin* now, which is fantastic. *beam* Thank you all. And more ideas are certainly welcome. :)

I did in fact read LAST LIGHT OF THE SUN this morning, and sadly, it was not worth waiting two years for. It's a fine book, but it didn't grab me the way other Kay books have. I don't know if this is because I'm familiar enough with his tricks to anticipate them, at this point, or if it just didn't work for me. (I'm certainly familiar with the tricks in TIGANA, but it works for me every time.) The cats took turns sitting on my chest and blocking the book while I read. Lucy is now helping me type, by sitting on the keyboard and my chest. Zilli's over there on Ted's lap, sort of perching awkwardly. Silly kitties.

Ted got his cast off! His arm's quite thin and his wrist's all swollen from being stationary for so long, but his elbow, which has been hurting, has stopped aching now that there's not the cast weighting it down, and the doctor's given him exercises to do, so yay! All is well! He's very glad. So am I. :)

Right. Time to dislodge Lucy and go take a shower. Maybe by the time I'm done doing that, Ted'll be done reading WORLDWIRED and I can pounce on it. :)

money order, anyone?

Would somebody in the States be willing to go get a money order and send it to Hong Kong for me? This ebay auction I've won doesn't do Paypal and I can't get the online payment service they do use to work for me. They've asked, in that case, for a US dollars money order, and at this moment in time it seems easier to ask somebody to go get me one and send it, and have me Paypal them the cost, than anything else. It'd be like $60. I could even, like, throw in a copy of THUNDERBIRD FALLS, maybe, if'n you wanted. :)

In the meantime, a poll:
