posty ms. posts-a-lot  

See, I told you. Lots of posts. :p (and I am of course typing at the laptop, so either I’m not suffering that much or I’m really stupid.)

I thought I’d start the weight loss chat room this coming Sunday, the 5th of April. The most widely agreeable time was ‘open at chat room at 9am Pacific and let it run all day’, which translates to running–at least with me as a participant–until about 1pm Pacific/5pm Eastern/10pm Greenwich, so that’s what I’ll do, and I’ll sort of assume that the peak participation time will be around noon Pacific/4pm Eastern/9pm Greenwich.

Totally non-related, I’ve been observing the various bushes and plants and trees we’ve planted, and so far the apple tree and the cherry tree seem to be doing very well, as are the strawberries. Some of the raspberry plants are starting to get leaves, and I have one planter that looks suspiciously like it’s been planted with sticks and nothing else. :) But then, the other day I was thinking in terms of planting and growing things and my brain decided it must be late June, because it was utterly absurd to be planting things in the middle of March. In the land of my people the earth is still buried beneath several feet of snow in the middle of March. :)

Fairly random question, because I haven’t been doing much with kitsnaps anyway, but if it was set up in a more typical blog format, with scroll-down for older entries instead of click-throughs, would that be more appealing? It just struck me that the photoblog I like best is set up that way. Hm.

Oh, right. Extending the PRETENDER’S CROWN contest through the weekend and up til next Tuesday, ’cause people’ve asked if they could have the weekend so they can look at the book again and think harder. I’ve loved some of the ideas that’ve come through…and you don’t have to cast *everybody*! I didn’t mean to make it so hard! :)

Tonight we’re going to the pool and I’m going to start teaching Ted how to swim (as opposed to stay alive in the water, which he’s quite competent at). Hopefully we won’t end up wanting to kill each other. :)

I think I’ll go finish reading a book now.

I was thinking in terms of planting and growing things . . . In the land of my people the earth is still buried beneath several feet of snow in the middle of March.

It is currently snowing Right Now and there are still several feet of snow covering the garden space outside, but I planted my seedlings night before last. I'm also figuring out a possible greenhouse to build this year and looking into vermicomposting, as the composting we did last year didn't get enough oxygen and stank to high heaven.

I won't be able to join you the next two weekends for the chat, but I will try to do so after that....

I'm off to be an extra in a fan-created Firefly movie for the next two weekends. :)

Clearly I do not want to be where you are from. :)

And yeah, it was me. I'm glad you're liking it! Yay! The second book is just out, I believe...
