A while ago I sold my short story “Them Shoes” to Subterranean Press, and it is now up in their Summer magazine! I’m all pleased. :)

I haven’t been able to figure out how to start the 5th Walker Papers, despite several attempts. I complained of this last night. Ted said, “Start with a (extremely obvious solution).” Why couldn’t *I* think of that?!? *flails around in exasperation*

I’m seriously considering emailing all of those nice “I’d buy ‘em if you wrote six books” comments on the last entry to my editor. She’s asked before about what reactions I’ve gotten to TQB…

We’ve been watching the Olympics. I get terribly emotional over the Olympics. It doesn’t even matter if I like the sport. I get all AWWW SNIFFLE THEY WON! Such a dork. :)

I cannot for the life of me decide what to do with my hair. Consequently it’s getting longer and shaggier and more annoying. Cutting it v. short again is by far the easiest thing to do, especially with swimming. But my ears get cold, a thing which never bothered me until recently. But I’ve got to do *something*. Mrhghghg.

Oop! Ted needs the computer. *scurries off*

He he he, honestly, I know a lot of people who get dorky on the Olympics. I get dorky on the Olympics. One of my friends texted me the other day to say she started crying during the end of the marathon.

I cried at the end of the women's marathon last time, when the Australian woman won in Sydney. In fact, I STILL get teared up thinking about it, just cause as she said, if she'd been anywhere else in the world that day she'd have come in second, but the home town crowd brought her home. *SNIIIIIIIIIIIIIF*

You know, I usually tear up during medals ceremonies, usually the US ones I admit, though I did get teared up during a Canadian medal ceremony once because the person couldn't stop crying and laughing at the same time.
