[personal] Miscellaneous Updatery

No writing time yesterday. I had a full day at the office, then we had an after hours holiday party at my boss's home, so that pretty much filled the day. I did bring some Époisses cheese to the party, thanks to the rather excellent cheese department at the Whole Foods here in Omaha.

I also dropped by a Barnes and Noble to pick up a couple of Charles Stross books for my reading pleasure, and was amusingly mistaken for Mr. Stross by the store manager when I inquired about signing my stock. I did manfully refrain from signing Charlie's books for him.

Workie bits today, and unless something expected crops up, writing time this evening. I'm not pressing myself on this story, just letting it come to life in my head and on the page. We shall see.

Anent yesterday's hair rant, it occurred to me when I woke up this morning that although I miss my flowing tresses, as a practical matter it would be nice to have my eyelashes and nose hairs back. Trust me, being nasally bald is annoying and slightly indecorous. The eyelash thing is just sad.

I'll be home Friday afternoon, off to a housewarming party Friday evening if I haven't collapsed from exhaustion. I expect to spend much of the weekend working with [info]the_child on some homework issues, but also hoping to finish the story-in-progress this weekend, so that next week I can fire up Sunspin revisions.

And of course, next Thursday, a week from tomorrow, I'm off to Michigan for Epic ConFusion. See some, all or none of you there.
