Tew's Day 
15th-Mar-2011 07:29 am
Today is my daughter's sixteenth birthday, whoa.

Also hello to new reader influencings!

State of the 'Song
Still hit with the tired stick. Also a bit ouchy. Barometric pressure, will you please find a nice place and stay there?

How to get my mother to not complain about my weight
"Actually, salesperson, can I see this in an extra small?"


(Yes, I wear a small or XS, and I still weigh too much for her taste. Thankfully I find her taste irrelevant.)

I have my edits in for My Empire for Ashes, which looks like it might graduate from "novella" to "short novel". Is good stuff! The benefits of an editor who doesn't know my world backward and forward: she can pinpoint the concepts I'm not explaining clearly enough. Yay!

I hope to have awesome cover art news soon.

Otherwise, the Shayara news is just that I am writing! Nothing that looks exciting from your POV. Although I think you will love some of the marketing stuff.

No Link Soup
My parents have kept me too busy.

Daily Science
Hubble rules out one alternative to dark energy.

Work, then augh more shopping, then Elayna's birthday dinner. This is the last day of the parental visit, huzzah!

Happy Birthday to Elayna and congratulations on surviving the parental visit.

Happy birthday Elayna

Happy Birthday Elayna!

I was just wondering whether it would be 15 or 16 this year.

MA has a graduated driver's license plan, yes? So no worries about a random weekend roadtrip this weekend? ;)
15th-Mar-2011 01:49 pm (UTC)
No worries. :) Actually, she's not yet interested in driving at all! And in Boston, she doesn't really have to.

Happy birthday Elayna! And my admiration for your grace under pressure with...the other stuff :-)
15th-Mar-2011 01:27 pm (UTC)
Give your daughter a big hug from me for her sweet sixteenth. My icon is for her today. :-)

As for your mother thinking you're still too big for her tastes... perhaps it's because she still sees you as a child, so in her mind, you need to be smaller? Just a thought...
15th-Mar-2011 01:32 pm (UTC)
It is decidedly not that; she just wants me to be a size 0 like her.
15th-Mar-2011 09:54 pm (UTC)
And here I thought you're tiny enough for anyone, so it must only be that she objects to the proportions of your Amazing Ass.
15th-Mar-2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
Heh. At least it's a very Jewish ass.
15th-Mar-2011 01:51 pm (UTC)
16 is Not Allowed. Tell her.

No, wait, ok, I'm over it. Happy Birthday Elayna!

Parents leave when?
15th-Mar-2011 01:55 pm (UTC)
Tomorrow morning.

We were in Target yesterday and she bought Applejack and Fluttershy. :)
15th-Mar-2011 01:56 pm (UTC)

OH GOOD. Hee hee!
15th-Mar-2011 01:57 pm (UTC)
She tried to buy one pony for her and one for me. I was like Dude it is your birthday get your favorites. My goodness, child, you're allowed to not share sometimes. :)
15th-Mar-2011 01:59 pm (UTC)
Ha! She's such a sweet kid. So she likes the blunt-edged farm girl and the shy nature girl. That doesn't surprise me that much, when I think about it. If she got one for her and one for you, who was she going to pick for each?
15th-Mar-2011 02:00 pm (UTC)
Applejack and Twilight Sparkle. (I already have a Pinkie Pie.)
15th-Mar-2011 02:01 pm (UTC)
Yup, that all sounds about right.
15th-Mar-2011 03:13 pm (UTC)
(Yes, I wear a small or XS, and I still weigh too much for her taste. Thankfully I find her taste irrelevant.)

This still merits a well-deserved WTF?

Happy Birthday Elayna!
15th-Mar-2011 05:41 pm (UTC)
Well, I for one would love to hear more about the Shayara processes in detail. Even if you just email me personally, I still want to hear it!
15th-Mar-2011 07:38 pm (UTC)
Happy birthday to Elayna! :)
