New York Times :)

Sadly, no, this is not a post saying I’ve hit the NYT. Not exactly, anyway. There is, however, a pretty damned cool article about AmberMUSH players, myself included, who grew up to be professional writers. Jim is, of course, the lead story, but Cameron Banks, Angela Beegle, and the Evil Hat lads are name-checked as well. Pretty nifty! And a nice way to start the weekend. :)

eta: Could somebody pick me up a copy of that NYT? I can’t find one over here. (Ah, for the days of yore, when we MUSHed all night and you could find international newspapers at the bookstores…)

thinks yet again

- plane tickets to alaska
- order the remaining costumes for NYCC
- empty compost
- wash diaper wraps
- oh yes, try to do somethingstart to accept I’m not going to do anything about cover art for the ORSSP
- address newsletter winner envelopes & put the books in ‘em
- send the books
- call UPC grrr
- make a Kickstarter video (*squinchy face*)
- redesign the P-Con website
- clean the back room
- jumbletown the old TV

*flails* PUG does not yet have this dress in, and it’s the one I’d really *like* for NYCC. But I’m trying to choose a back-up dress just in case, and cannot decide between this military-esque-style dress (which is utterly fabulous but not really great colors for me) or this knockout number (which I’ve actually tried on and is amazing but I already have a black and red dress). Or there’s this, which is stylistically different from the other two I’ve got so perhaps it would be a good choice, or–*flails*! and then there’s the question of what jeans to get, these preposterously awesome wide-legged ones, or the snug-fitting other end of the spectrum… (and no, getting all of the above is not an option, not unless *you’re* footing the bill. :))
