CE repeat  

I’ve had this copy-editor before, on THE FIREBIRD DECEPTION. She has a strange objection to hyphens (somewhere in FIREBIRD she changed “extra-long” to “extralong”, which was just bizarre). This is terribly minor and I recognize everywhere that the hyphens have been removed, so it’s not like changing them back is a chore, but I find it mildly amusing to realize I recognize the CE by her style. That’s ten books ago now, ye gods.

So far today, I’ve walked 4 miles, swum 3 kilometers, bought 2 new MP3 players, and had 1 bird shit on my head. Three out of four ain’t bad, as my mother said, but I would’ve been much, much more upset about the last if I hadn’t had a towel with me because I’d been swimming. I’m also … ‘chugging’ is too fast a word. Inching. Along on the AAs. I’m going to try to retain consciousness and work on them until 6, which should get them most of the way done. And then we’ll watch Dollhouse and BSG, I hope. :)

Did I mention Ted made filé gumbo and raspberry truffle brownies last night? *tud* So. Incredibly. GOOD.

miles to Minas Tirith: 76.4
ytd km swum: 24.2

It's important to know where your towel is at all times.

...for stating what I so *very clearly* should have said, I shall send you a book. What book would you like? :)

That is *no help at all*.
