Well. I went forth to buy some summer clothes today, and spent over two hours shopping, which is my personal idea of hell. Moreover, I didn’t like much and what I did like I couldn’t afford, with the exception of a linen dress which had a broken zipper on the one size that fit me. That sucked.

Ted, however, cleaned up, as I picked up the new D&D books for him and also found THE SPOOK’S MISTAKE, which must’ve just come out Tuesday. So at least that was a win.

And I had lunch with Kate, which was very pleasant. We geeked a lot, and eventually stopped at the goth shop to see if we could find anything irresistible. I found some very long white clip-in hair thingies, and on the logic that I might someday grow my hair out again, bought a couple for a non-bleached Rogue stripe. But I have to get rid of the red at the bangs before I start growing it again, I think…

I was walking down the stairs a couple of days ago with HOUSE OF CARDS and THE QUEEN’S BASTARD in my hand and had a real moment of surreality: I wrote these books. I do this for a living. Buh!

thinks to do tomorrow:

- email jason the edits
- work on “frwl”

miles to Minas Tirith: 490.1

you should have said - I could have pretended to help look at clothes.
Looked for QB in waterstones and they didn't have it, so I was thinking who should I call to get them to stock it? OR should they already be stocking it?

No, I'd gone before we met up. :)

You should ask them at the front desk to order it. They've been a bit dense, so it might help to have the ISBN, which is...0345494644. :)

Each time I see "frwl" in a post (I'm not crazy, right? You've mentioned it before?) my brain starts trying to make up things that it could be, like interpreting car vanity plates. Today offered up "firewall," "free will," and "froawl" which I think must be a shawl that a female version of Frodo would wear.

My money's on Froawl. :]
