Yay!
Just sold a poem and two pieces of flash fiction to Electric Velocipede. The poem and one piece of flash will be in issue #20, and the other piece of flash will be in one of next year's issues.

I get gelato. :)

Random Picture

What my hair looks like when I wake up.

Mirror, Mirror
I don't actually look in mirrors, save when I am applying makeup, and then I really only look at my eyelashes or my lips, whatever bit of my face is currently most relevant.

The hotel in NYC had mirrors all over the place. Unavoidable.

First thing I noticed: my hair is long-ish again! The front layers only come down to a little below my shoulders, so I hadn't noticed that it was down to my bra strap in the back again.

Second thing I noticed: My butt looks really good in those jeans!

Wind Tunnel Dreams
Still looking at maybe doing that this week and/or next week, but I want to get that Shayara sequence down first; didn't get to yesterday, as I napped much of the day away.

Today
Shopping. :P Which I hate, but the kid needs bras.

Yay water. <3
I don't tend to really let myself play often enough. I am the woman in charge, the person who Gets Things Done; I am a girl in a short skirt and a long jacket. But in the water, I let myself play.

Belated NYC Foodblogging
Meals of note:
Mesa Grill: Sixteen-spice duck breast with carrot-habanero sauce & chorizo-goat cheese tamale with thyme butter; glass of malbec; bites of appetizers (barbecued pork/Oaxaca cheese quesadilla and blue corn pancake with barcecued duck & habanero chile-star anise sauce) and desserts (chocolate corn bread pudding and coconut layer cake).
Norma's: Warm Black Forest ham and Brie crêpe roulades.
Sarabeth's: Pumpkin waffle topped with sour cream, raisins, pumpkin seeds and honey.

No Florida foodbloggery... simpler food here. Tortellini, a tuna platter at a deli.

Mm. Tired. Swimming = exercise as well as play, after all.

Correction: you just sold a poem and some flash fiction to Hugo award winning Electric Velocipede! Huzzah!

Yay! Congrats all around. :) Especially on the sales!

Also, I meant to say that Elayna would probably like A Wish After Midnight, if you still want to check it out.

I'll look for it!

There is a story there you know. I must find it.

Random picture....MMMMMMM...longish hair!!!!

Congrats on the poem!

And wasn't your hair the first thing I complimented you on? It is amazing hair, and that picture captures it rather well. :)

Ooh, gorgeous hair! I'm officially jealous now.

Nice pic of your hair! Great color!

Where's the butt pic?

Hey, you opened the subject for this line of questioning!

We all need time to play, one way or another...

Woohoo, sale! Congratumalations! *fist-bump*

Clearly your hair looks good when you wake up.

You know, aside from my old roommate and the streets and streets of stuff, I miss the food in NYC more than anything. I try not to think about it too much. :sigh: Want the crepe roulades and pumpkin waffle.

Your hair = so pretty. I envy your curls.
13th-Aug-2009 12:03 pm (UTC)
And see, I envy *your* hair!

I was thinking about offering this to you anyway, but take a look at the Miami Spice website and let me know if there's anything on there that appeals to you. My treat.

<3 <3 <3

Have you been to any of those? What's good?

I like Chef Allen's, though what they're currently offering for the spice doesn't wow me. Sra. Martinez is really good. Soyka isn't that special. Palm d'Or is supposed to be fantastic as is the Fountainbleu choice. As for the others, I've heard good things about most of them.
