Chris (and I helping via proxy) have just spent the last several hours trying to get his new computer to work, before realizing that he needs a certain connecter to interface between the power supply and the motherboard for one of the components. Don't ask--way too complicated to explain.
I'm still going through e-mail here; for every twenty I answer, I get another ten in.
Still reading client manuscripts too, so if you're waiting to hear back from me, they're in the queue.
Stupid ear infection went away out of my left ear, but surprise, it's still in my right ear! Joy of joys! Blessed day! At least I'm not dizzy, yet...back on different antibiotics.
Zoe weighs exactly ten pounds.
I have nothing stunning or interesting to say about the literary world at the moment. I've been reading or skimming or doing both of a bunch of books while being ill the last two weeks, putting them down and picking them up and so on. Some were great; some were not. Why read books instead of manuscripts? Because when I'm feeling that crappy, you really don't want me evaluating your manuscript, even if you are my client--my brain just does not function enough for that.
I'm going to Readercon. I am going to be completely incognito and do nothing agenting-related at all. I look forward to parties and friends and visiting a hotel near Boston.
My next professional conference is the first weekend of August for the Willamette Writers. Look for me on the west coast! =)
Also, if there's anybody out there that reads this blog who happens to work at a zoo or aquarium or wildlife park, or who has access to scientific journals on zoology, please have them contact me. I am trying to track down how much a baby male polar bear weighs at each month of his first year of life. Pounds or kilograms, I don't care; I just need the info. I have scoured the interent already, so links to sites about polar bears aren't going to help me very much.
Have a good night everyone! =)
