Cats are slowly adapting to each other, and I've almost stopped freaking out when Crowley, who looks like a ghost cat (seriously, he's that white), goes padding around in low light. Baby has almost forgiven Mommy, and I think I might get some snuggles tonight.

Blah. Still waiting on revision notes--getting impatient, here--so I've been knitting and crocheting. Have come up with a nifty way to make money on Etsy, too, so that might be an option for future. Hands are killing me. Talking to the rheumatologist about this on Monday.

Have edited and re-submitted a story I'm quite fond of. It's very Ray Bradbury-esque, though definitely written by me. Keeping my fingers crossed on the submission, as the market is kind of a long shot for SF this hard.

Sleep now.

And Charlton Heston is dead.


  1. I got into the knitting thing a few winters ago. Wasn't very good at it. (But I loved going out and buying yarn. All those pretty colors...) I did a few scarves and they all ended up curving instead of being nice and straight. Hope your hands get to feeling better. I have carpal tunnel so bad now; have to wear a brace -- which is so awesome cus it actaully works.

  2. Hmm. Curving knitting has usually been a tension issue in my experience. Blocking and washing will sometimes fix the problem. Or, y'know, just knit in the round to nip the problem in the bud. Some stitches curl naturally, so that might have been an issue, too.

    Ugh, carpal tunnel. I have to get checked for that every few years. My grandma, who gave me the art bug, developed it in her 70s, I think, and she was so upset that she had to give up her handiwork. It just sounds like the definition of Hell to me. :(
