Thursday. Stuff.

1. It seems like the way the pharmacy screwed up timprov's meds is unlikely to result in his head exploding at this time. Still. Did we need that? We did not.

2. Vertigo does not get better when you add hypoglycemic dizziness to it. Just FYI. In case you were wondering. I don't usually need this tattooed on my forehead in mirror-writing. Just occasionally.

3. I find that I am so averse to talking about politics in entries to this lj that I go tight-jawed when I think of even saying so. I just want it over, and I'm being kind of hypervigilant about my boundaries: I read the news, but only when I feel like it (which is at least daily, but still). I do not watch TV news. I do not watch debates. And when political volunteers telephone or show up on my doorstep, I get rid of them as quickly as I can, because this is my house, and I can't control whether there are ads everywhere and endless rehashes of the same soundbites, but I can control my house.

4. timprov says I should believe in the writing of this book because I know how these people go. And I do, I do. I never had to call gaaldine to say that I was definitely unexpectedly pregnant by a man who was about to be the Queen of Air and Darkness's teind. (And in fact, I am neither Janet nor Ang, and neither is gaaldine.) But I know how these conversations work even so. This is a very strangely fluent sensation, made stranger by its similarity to writing Dwarf's Blood Mead and The Mark of the Sea Serpent.

5. You know how I said I wasn't going to write another book at this desk? Apparently I was wrong. But I kind of wish I hadn't been. I just don't see a way to make desk shopping a good thing right now, and the adjustable height desks I found online were Not Suitable for a variety of reasons. So I think further thinky thoughts about it, in hopes that something will come swimming to the surface and I will get to say, "Oh, of course! That!" But I'm not really counting on it.

There is more, but I think that's it for now.
