Yesterday managed to be action packed. The tall pole was of course my oncology appointment [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]. The Day Jobbe managed to be busy as well. My parents took me and the_child out to dinner to celebrate my renewed lease on life (three months, no security deposit!). I spent about an hour and a half working on Calamity of So Long a Life, including some reasonably intense cross-referencing with the short story "Torquing Vacuum". Plus some critical reading of a friend's mss, and some review/blurb reading of an ARC.

Whew. Busy much, me?

Life is not for the lazy.

Thank you very much for starting Sgt. Pepper in the iBrain playlist this morning. :P

Just thought I'd mention that I watched the final episode of Foyle's War last night and thought it was a bummer. The two before it dealt with really interesting historical issues in the usual brilliant Foyle's War way, but the final episode, while working from a good idea, fell short in screenwriting, camera work, and score. Although I do dearly love the cast, and they did what they could with shoddy materials, I intend to pretend (as I do with the so-called "epilogue" at the end of the seventh Harry Potter book) that the final episode doesn't exist. Just sayin'.

...also I'm really, really happy for you. Especially the "up to 50%" part but even more especially three months of shore leave. Just remember, as much as you love being busy and productive, to make some laze time, k?
