Happy birthday to lynxreign!
Hello to new reader claygilbert!
I continue to be unaccountably ouchy, though not as much as yesterday.
Wind Tunnel Dreams
I'm sorry, I spent yesterday in a protracted state of total exhaustion... writerbrain was not online. At all. I'll double up today.
Walk for Change
I've hit $500, yay! Which is... half my goal, and the walk is on Sunday. Do me a favor? Sponsor me if you can, but even if you can't, please signal-boost me. One of your readers may want to sponsor!
Her hearse needs a new transmission, to the tune of $1150. Ouch. She's stranded in Asheville til this gets sorted.
My guys wrote poems! Okay, feste_sylvain's is more one thing about an oracle, and Adam's is haiku about nine different oracles, but still.
Free Online Fiction!
It's update time for Lone Star Stories, Farrago's Wainscot, Clarkesworld, and Futurismic!

That cup of coffee that many gym rats, bikers and runners swill before a workout does more than energize them. It kills some of the pain of athletic exertion, a new study suggests. And it works regardless of whether a person already had a coffee habit or not.
Caffeine works on a system in the brain and spinal cord (the adenosine neuromodulatory system) that is heavily involved in pain processing, says University of Illinois kinesiology and community health professor Robert Motl. And since caffeine blocks adenosine, the biochemical that plays an important role in energy transfer and thus exercise, he speculated that it could reduce pain.
That post office run I didn't get to yesterday. Writing writing writing. Perhaps a nap.
