I persist in being just a little overtired. But. It has been a very active few weeks.
I have been tempted by a certain lovely mermaid-haired poetess. Hmm. Hmm, I say.
Not sure what I'd write for it, though. I'd want more time to work on Places You Haunt. Cicatrix is a great big no because no one wants to deal with a Thanksgiving nervous breakdown. Maybe Apostate (dying space station) or Cascade/Disconnect (hard to describe without giving overmuch away, but deals with neurology and social networking).
Next Big Thing
s00j/Bekah/Ginger/dustyskinandall fans, the Next Big Thing is Rebecca Loebe. And she's doing a house concert at my place on October 12. Make a note of it.
(Thanks for the intro, thryn!)

It is Very Easy to Get Pretty Girls to Kiss You
Just say "I kissed a pretty girl today! Want to make it two?"
Adjust for actual number of girls kissed.
This works wonderfully at cons, with "I've only kissed $X girls at the con so far."
EDIT: Yes, yes, shkeevy menfolk should not try this. This works for me because I am generally bouncy and friendly and clearly adore everyone. YMMV.
Kissing girls, discovering new music, driving around telling life stories through non-new music, dinner with good friends, butternut squash ravioli, and a teddy bear with a bunny hat.
Breakfast out, construction of "songs on 'song's mind this month" mix CD, and going to jump back into "Maxfield Parrish Blue(s)" at request of devilishly handsome man.
One amphibian has evolved a bizarre and gruesome defence mechanism to protect itself against predators. When attacked, the Spanish ribbed newt pushes out its ribs until they pierce through its body, exposing a row of bones that act like poisonous barbs. The newt has to force its bones through its skin every time it is attacked, say scientists who have described the form and function of the barbs in detail.
"Maxfield Parrish Blue(s)", which is my sightly bent Singularity story. Then more extremely tedious clothes shopping, this time for Elayna. I actually seem to have daytime writing time tomorrow and Friday, too, so I could potentially have a functional draft of this story by Friday night if I manage to keep butt in chair, which I classically have not excelled at.
