Happy birthday to cmpriest
Woke up schvitzy in the middle of the night; had to put the AC on. You guys, no one told me before the move that MA doesn't believe in air conditioning. I'm just sayin'. I would've thought twice. Everyone asked if I could handle the cold, and yeah, I've got sweaters. No one said "Oh, by the way, we're the only place in the country that doesn't have central air, like, anywhere
, and it gets over 100 degrees here; is that okay by you?"Story
So there's an anthology I'm interested in submitting to, but the deadline is Saturday, and - I have the Idea, but I don't have the execution, and that's mostly because I don't have a sense of the character. See my lament about a month ago about how I do better writing about characters than about ideas. But it's an idea anthology. I dunno. I feel like I ought to try. I'll let you know.Oi, Bostonians!
Anyone else going roller-skating tonight

Must decide if I'm writing that story. If so, write it. If not, write something else. Also, my current knitting project is close to finished, and could conceivably be finished today. And tonight? Roller skating! But a nap somewhere in there, because I am still weary.
