trolls and paint and more [May. 21st, 2013|09:00 am]

1. I have a new story up at Daily SF: The Troll (A Tale Told Collectively). Go, read, enjoy!

2. It is exactly one month from the start of Fourth Street Fantasy Convention. Conventions succeed because of the awesome people who attend them. We already have many awesome people coming to Fourth Street, but there's room for more. Wouldn't you like to join us?

3. This week my mom is coming over and painting the living room Hilltop. Hilltop, for people who do not memorize paint company databases, is green. This is the last "real" room in our house to be repainted since we moved in, and I am so pleased. (The laundry room and storage room have not been repainted; the storage room doesn't even have finished walls, so it hasn't even been painted once and isn't going to be. The laundry room is tiny and covered in old wallpaper, as well as being filled with laundry appliances, so...we can leave it in '80s flowers for the foreseeable future.)

4. Apparently every three years we do a May painting project and I miss wilfulcait. Cancer: do not approve, am not resigned. Just for the record.

5. Yesterday I worked on my new book, and I ran errands, and I did lo these many things. But my major accomplishment for yesterday was using up a packet of tisane. We have too many things in the hot beverage section of Narnia (a.k.a. the pantry). Clearing out the things with appropriate use is great virtue.

1a. The story link has some extra stuff at the beginning of it.

1b. But I got to the story anyhow, and [this part removed because I realized it was spoiler-ish as soon as I posted it]. That felt very family-like, despite being not at all like my own family. Nicely done!

Likewise for me: the link didn't work but the story did! Go story!

Have not given up waiting for a miracle infusion of cash for 4th Street purposes.

I have been wishing to come to 4th Street since it started, but it is the wrong time of year for me to take time off (any time in the summer is the wrong time as I have found out the hard way). Foo! Foo!

Yay troll story. :)

Interesting story.

Maybe it's a good thing my extended family only gets together about once a decade.
