my boring life
Apparently my life is sufficently boring that I can’t think of anything to blog about. I have to draw winners for the BYD contest, but since I already blew my first deadline on that and there’s a long weekend coming up in America, I think I’ll wait until next week.
In the meantime, random things:
I believe this is very much the sort of thing the phrase “Oh, snap!” was invented for: Back to back questions presented to Robert Downey Jr and Scarlett Johansson.
*laughs* My wallet died, so I found an old one I knew I had lying around. It has Sarah/
‘s work phone # ca 2001, a 1999 bank receipt, a photo of me & Ted from 1997, a 1994 pic of my sister, & the crowning glory, the thing that made me actually laugh out loud because it was so unexpected, an early 90s photo of the unrequited high school Love Of My Life. *laughs & laughs*
Speaking of pictures, this is probably the most awesome one I’ve seen this week. MIB-Avengers mashup FTW!
I believe I have got all the ducks in a row for launching ORIGINS next Friday. Having re-read the stories, I feel that the ORSSP patrons got their money’s worth, and that so too will the people buying it as an e-book. *waits impatiently for Friday next*
link salad, maybe
The Book Love Affair blog is running an Urban Fantasy Awards contest & give-away, and has included the Walker Papers in her line-up. The way to participate is by leaving comments, and I’ve just offered to send an early copy of WALKING DEAD to one of the winners there, so if you want another chance at it, go participate! Also, well, I’d really kind of like to see a good showing in one of these things, because my books more or less never get nominated for any of these sorts of things (I find it amusing, ironic, and appropriate that she has URBAN SHAMAN down as an example for the “most overlooked” category, see), so, well. *makes eyes for people go to participate*
This NatGeo photograph is one of the most amazing pictures I’ve ever seen.
Okay, that wasn’t as link salady as I thought it might be. That’s okay.
Off to finish revisions now. I hope.

I actually got a huge amount done on Friday, although out of the four things on the “Must Do Today” list, only 2 of them got done. Still, one of them was the critical one, and I did get a lot done.
And IRON MAN *rocked*. I will see it again in the theatre. Possibly twice. And on the off chance you haven’t been told yet, stay through the credits.
We also went to “Nim’s Island”, which was cute if not Ted’s cup of tea (I like kids’ movies better than he does, generally, I think, but the neurotic writer bonus was also funny to me :)) and to “Made of Honour”, which was extremely formulaic but cute enough. Kevin McKidd’s Scottish accent was terrible in the same way Roma Downey’s Irish accent is terrible: he’s been using other accents for so long he now has to put on a Scottish one, and he’s not very good at it. Still, Kevin McKidd! Yay! :)
Other than that, it was a working weekend. And today is a bank holiday in Ireland, and…a working weekend. Just gotta finish TPC and do my HoF AAs. Then I’m taking a week off before starting WP#4. *chants this to self*
Um. Merlin pointed me at this Batman vs the Dark Knight trailer, and it is totally made of win. Or here we have Halle Berry’s breasts distracting a talk show host, link courtsey of Deborah. And last but not least, though totally different in content, Yanni Kuznia (whose LJ handle I can’t remember!) of Subterranean Press was good enough to guest blog for us at Magical Words on Friday.
Sometime–you know, in my copious free time–I need to update WordPress and go through my mood icons and re-set them to moods I’m more likely to use.
thinks left to do:
– respond to barbara
– edit the hell out of TPC
– write guest blog #2
