Hello to new readers hani, ravnsdaughter, neighbor_ninja, and ohlordies!

Doing pretty okay. I wish the weather was better... I keep having the urge to go for walks, but it's way too hot. :(

Up to $533.34, thanks to the former Aussie_NYC and wilhelmina_d!

Sponsor me!

Check out these awesome auctions!

And help me spread the word!

Quote of the Day
"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."
- Steve Jobs, from a college commencement address

I am already naked. Baby, I live naked.

I have a lunch not-a-date... I may take myself to the movies afterward to kill time between that and Diesel, and also to keep me from walking around in the heat of the day.

Um, no heat today. It might reach 70. Today we get The Wet instead.

I should be at Diesel (barring some miraculous last-minute job interview or something) so if you could bring a copy of your book for me, I'd much appreciate it.

I found you through Goodreads.com through Ravens in the Library and popped over to your website. Mrrrr, I love your stories and poems I've read so far.

I only wish I had Internet access after the 22nd so I could participate in the auction! Maybe I will anyway... Never know if you don't try.

Thanks for the welcome!

A way-belated thank you! (Post-Blogathon, I'm finally getting to dig through accumulated LJ comments!)

Why would we want to contaminate Mars with Earth organisms?

We have to be VERY careful in our explorations of Mars. We do not want to end up in a situation where we can't tell if we found a Martian organism, or an earth organism that changed during its time on Mars.

I feel really conflicted about the Jobs comment. On the one hand, yeah, but on the other, I feel like he's way oversimplifying something powerful to make a quote.

Okay, that's what inspirational quotes are for and what they do, but still.

Fucking inspiration.
