It’s flipping freezing in this house this morning, which I had extra time to appreciate because for some reason I woke up around a quarter to seven and at 5 after determined I really probably wasn’t going back to sleep, so I might as well get up. Sigh. Anyway, as far as I can tell the pressure’s gone off on the boiler again, and I’m not actually sure how to fix it, so I’m waiting for Ted to get up (which I hear him doing now) to turn the damned heat back on. Stupid house. (Ted, who apparently has psychic powers, came downstairs, blew me a kiss, and went directly to the boiler and is now fixing it.)

OTOH, I’ve gotten 700 words written while huddling under my blankets and hiding in my warm fuzzy shirts and trying to keep a cat on my lap for the body heat. A mere 300 more and I’ll have met my minimum quota for the day. I can probably do that by 10.

Hey, I hear the heat kicking on. It’s a miracle.

Yesterday was a big fat failure in many respects. I didn’t go to the gym, I didn’t get anything on my thinks to do list done, I barely walked anywhere…:p OTOH, I watched Torchwood and got my words written, so I guess you take what you can get. Or do. Or something.

Back to work.

He's not psychic - you left the bed so it got COLD. He just came in search of warm.

I say to you that the new Torchwood series is, so far, much tighter than the first. I'm really liking it. I assume this means all the cool kids think it's been dumbed down or something and hate it, but oh well.

I really like Ianto's smartassedness being ramped way up. He was really short on personality in series 1.

Hey. Since we bonded over James Morrison at Kristine's site, :-) I decided to come over and visit. Imagine my surprise and delight to discover that you're the author of "Heart of Stone", which is at the top of my TBR list. One of the women in my fantasy book group absolutely loved it, so I put it on my amazon.com wishlist, and my secretary, darling woman that she is, bought it for me for Christmas.

Oh, cool! Hi! :) I hope you like HoS, and if you haven't already (I'm not done going through comments), you should tell me in that other posting why I should send *you* a copy of HOUSE OF CARDS, next in the series. :)

'Tis a fait accompli. :-)
