I know that lots of people want the blog to keep going, as do I. But it's going to take me a tiny bit before I totally get back into the groove about what's interesting to readers again. So for the time being, I shall just babble. =)
I went to bed at 11:50pm on December 9th and woke up at 4:50pm on December 10th. I was out for a full seventeen hours, which while totally refreshing, has left me totally wide awake at 3:11 am. And while awake is good, I have to get to sleep at some point because it's Hanukkah today! I have presents to wrap! I have gift breads to bake (Raw Apple Bread)! I have to get things ready to go celebrate with my parents later tonight. =)
Can you tell that I'm totally excited about the holiday?
Today was a fairly boring day--the husband and I trekked over to John Joseph Adams' house, to return several boxes worth of agent copies that I had. We played Xbox games (the graphics in Borderlands are insane) and had Chinese food and hung out. We cavorted with John's dog, Echo. And then we returned home to the dubious stares of Miss Zoe, since Cavorting With A Dog is definitely a forbidden activity in her cat code of ethics.
It is also freaking cold here. I understand we don't have snow, which is nice. But usually, sitting in my home office with two computers running full tilt, I'm fairly warm. Except I'm not, not right now. And we've turned up the heat once already, and I'm going to go hike it up again before I go to bed. Brr...
And that's all I've got for you today, except that Kirkus has apparently shut down too, and has replaced the story of the agency closing in the publishing news. Which is all well and good, as they're a much bigger and longer-lived entity than I am. =)
Have a Happy Hanukkah, everyone! If you have suggestions about what you want to hear from now on in LIT SOUP, feel free to leave them in the comments.
