Managed my energy much better at work today. Also got back to the hotel early, and have been quiet and largely horizontal since. Clearly I’m not going to get any writing done this week, due to the energy demands of work+travel. This would really tick me off if I let it, but I need to lay low and take care of myself.

Another work day tomorrow, followed by the Omaha Beach Party, then lighting out for the territories Friday morning. See some, all or none of you in the Bay Area this weekend.

I’ll be funny tomorrow, I promise.

..I just finished Escapement about 15 minutes ago.

It's a fantastic book, Jay. I'm having trouble with my superlatives at the moment - as much as I liked Mainspring, I liked this more - at least partly due to the exploration of more of the Northern Earth. When I'm feeling better (I've been sick the last few days), I'll write a proper review in my LJ and let you know.

You owe us funny? When did that happen? ::mutters:: Nobody tells me *anything*. I could go several smart arse ways here, but I won't. Instead, I ask you, when did you decide that you owed us funny? Some of us just plain *like* you.

Give the man a cookie (if he may have one).

You don't need to be funny for anyone. We get much more delight from knowing you're looking after yourself.
