Five Ways.

It has been a good full day celebrating my mom's birthday, including brunch and godkid-time and cake-baking and lo these many fine things.

To top it off, I got e-mail from John at Not One of Us saying he'd like to buy my radio astronomy short story, "Five Ways to Ruin a First Date." Sound horns! Bang drums! Look with increasing alarm at the small number of short stories still out on submission! Hmm. Maybe that last bit can be reserved for just me.

ETA: Huh. Seventy short story sales sneak up on you faster than you'd think.
