... in this mad season ...
Couldn't sleep, so I got up at quarter to six and cleaned the kitchen. I spent at least five minutes standing and admiring it afterwards. (I even vacuumed the floor, all the way out to the utility room and storage closet, but I didn't get around to mopping it. Later.)

This, of course, is nearly primally goofy, since I'm driving out to spend the day with elflet at Folsom Street Fair. So more than five hours of sleep would have been smart. Except I'm too excited to sleep.

Next week, we're flying to Boston, on all of seven days' premeditation. Neil Gaiman and Harlan Ellison are doing a talk at MIT, along with Peter David. I am a shameless fangirl. One day I may finish and post the essay about having dinner with Neil about this time last year, but don't hold your breath. I fell in love [no, not with Neil] over that weekend, which complicated the writeup quite a bit.

Life is good. Writing resumes bites. I'm going to organize myself and Sable out the door now.

Current Mood: pleasedpleased
Current Music: Talking Heads, Fear of Music

A beautiful woman,
An elf on a leash,
(elves wear silk and PVC)
left rumors in their wake.

Mere tracings on the sea
that is love
which left me spluttering,
awake, and alive.

The less winged among us demand a review of this event, even if there isn't one from the last.
Peter David is 'the Star Trek guy' yes? Tribbles?

"Tribbles" was David Gerrold. (I blush to admit that I liked his work...once.)

It's going to be an interesting trip...

This time, dear, you get at least a week between "falling" and seeing Neil. Will that make life easier to document? *wink*

Depends on whether I can keep up with delta elf or not. Whew!

(The integral of one over elf delta elf is the natural log of the absolute value of the elf in question...)

Oy.

(That was a hairsbreadth from "yellow", but once my breathing restarted I decided I would live. :-)

I don't know whether to be surprised or not that we didn't see each other at the Folsom Street Fair.

Well.

Hot, wasn't it? =)

It certainly was! I had no qualms about skinning out of the PVC pants the instant we got back to the car (in a garage). Fortunately, I was back into jeans before the security guard looked our way...
