five things make a post  

I have finished the major revisions to SHAMAN RISES and sent that chunk of the book off to my editor for approval while I polish up the edges of what’s left. My brain is fried.

I have, tragically, run out of chocolate chips and Kraft mac&cheese. It should be noted that this is not related to the previous paragraph.

I got hit with several spam messages in a row from a fake listserv. Now all the idiots on the ‘list’ are doing a reply-all and demanding to be removed from it, thus compounding the problem exponentially. The spammer must be so pleased. @.@

Anna Paquin has apparently brought the term ‘resting bitch face’ (or bitchy resting face) into public knowledge. I’ve heard it for quite a long time, and rather like it, although I do think resting bitch face is a default for a huge percentage of the population, both male and female, and that we should as a society get over it and stop asking people what’s wrong. But her demonstration is hysterical:

Resting Bitch Face, by Anna Paquin
Resting Bitch Face, by Anna Paquin

That is a *magnificent* resting bitch face. :)

Ted is torturing me by watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives when I’m hungry. I think I’ll go find an apple. Since we don’t have anything better. :)

I had to venture a hope that the kraft mac&cheese and chocolate chips were also not related. At least not going in the same dish ;-)

Bahahaha. Your hope is not to be disappointed (or maybe it is): the mac&cheese and chocolate chips did not run out together, or as part of the same dishe. In fact, they ran out weeks apart, but I only just now remembered to be tragic about it. :)

I suspect I was born with a resting bitch face. It's also entirely possible that they are issued with NYC residency....

Do we need to send emergency rations from the States?

I hope that apple was off the hook.

One of the episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives features Frank's Diner in Kenosha, WI. Home of the garbage plate. Which I highly recommend if you're ever in town and can afford to gain a few pounds in one sitting. Also, their pancakes are quite good.
