the speed of net

Being far too lazy to actually type this out myself, I'm just stealing it wholesale from desperance:

(several minutes later, eta: cyranocyrano points out neither desperance nor I can actually read instructions. Acephalous appears to actually be running this experiment, and the entry in question to be used is this one, not the one below. :D o.o)

esmeraldus_neo is conducting a wee experiment, to establish the speed of meme: to find out actually how far, how fast one new meme can spread across teh interwebs.

Here is a link to her entry, that explains why and how it works. It ain't hard, it is interesting, and we like her; we want everyone to play.

So these are the steps, and this completes them. We explain what she's doing; we link to her entry; we encourage other people to do the same. You are encouraged, nay, urged. C'mon, it's fun...

Oh, and then we ping Technorati, which will measure how far, how fast, etc.

There now, that wasn't hard...

ooh!

Ooh! I went downstairs to get breakfast, and discovered that the kitchen fairy had come to visit! The kitchen is much, much cleaner than it was the last time I saw it! Yay for the kitchen fairy!

Yeah, all right, this is me desperately avoiding my copy edits. (But that doesn't make the kitchen fairy any less wonderful!) The four or five days off I've had aren't enough to make me want to work yet. On the other hand, the edits are due Thursday, so I can't really put them off any longer.

But once I'm done I'm *done*.

*repeats that as I drag myself off to work*

(eta: Ok, my own writing just made me laugh right out loud. I love it when that happens. Maybe this isn't so bad after all. :))

OMG.

My year from hell has just officially ended. Oh my God. I'm all O.O. I just turned in the copy edits on COYOTE DREAMS, and that is officially the Very Last Thing that I have due until June 2007.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

Manuscripts turned in: HEART OF STONE, COYOTE DREAMS, THE PHOENIX LAW, HOUSE OF CARDS, THE QUEEN'S BASTARD

Manuscripts revised to editor spec: HEART OF STONE, COYOTE DREAMS, THE PHOENIX LAW

Manuscripts copyedited: COYOTE DREAMS, THE PHOENIX LAW

Manuscripts line-edited: THE PHOENIX LAW

Manuscripts due: NONE! NONE, I TELL YOU! NOTHING! Not for MONTHS and MONTHS! AHAHAHAHAHAH!

Fuck it, I don't care if I don't get another 18K written this year, we're goddamned well going to *Paris*, man.
