Happy early birthday to nichy, lightgathere, daoistraver, and vodou_chile!
Hello to new reader royannadawn!
Just the usual so far.
When telling Elayna about the wishlist silliness, we prefaced it by asking her if she knew how to shop from a wishlist. She said yes, and told us how, and listed a step that I in fact perform ("I learned it by watching you, Mom!"), but forgot to list here: 1a. Sort wishlist by priority.
I was wrong. Elayna hadn't packed seven books. She packed ten. Three were in the front pocket of the backpack. Oy.
One-hour plane trip.
The cool thing about the Frequent Tags module on the new portal page is that it shows me what characters I write about most. Capri, Julia, Alanna, Fenris, and Kieran, in that order. Wish I could see the rest of my tags in order, and not just the top ten. (The others, of course, are Shayara, writerbrain, Blog-a-Thon, Walking on Water, and Elayna.)
Speaking of writing, I've printed out nanosong and the Victor thing so I can work on them while I'm away. Damn, I need a laptop.
Today's my Friday, so have some Friday Memeage...
Jeans and violet turtleneck sweater, but I'm going to change into my Hello Kitty hoodie later. "413: Object requested is too large" panties, Grape Ape socks.
I'm back to The Tipping Point, after diverting to the new books docorion gave me - recently read The Radioactive Redhead, by John Zakour and Lawrence Ganem (sci-fi comedy noir!) and Everyone in Silico by Jim Munroe.
Elayna is Reading
She's about to start The Westing Game. Finally.
DeLand! Yay! *boogies down* My birthmom and aunt and uncle and extended family, and good food and wine, and talking and just - people I can be me with. I've actually thought of moving there, but Adam can't be away from a Real City, and I don't have any friends in the area; morenasangre and farren are the closest, and they're two hours away. So yes, yes, I wouldn't be blissfully happy there long-term due to friend-isolation, but... I really adore that branch of my family, and look forward to this all year.
And yes, the gifts take up one whole suitcase.
