Totally forgot to post on Tuesday. In my defense, I can't seem to grasp what day it is lately. It's like every day is Monday since last Wednesday, which was Friday. Bleh.
I got my edits back early. On Monday, of all days. Heh. Started them on Tuesday. (Which was another Monday.) As far as I can tell, at this time, with what I've seen so far, I should be able to get this out to the world on or before the 17th of December. Which means I really have to write that damned blurb.
In case you haven't heard, postage stamps are going up to 55c in January. Get your forever stamps now and avoid the price hike. Price hikes suck. When you think about it, though, getting an envelope anywhere in this huge country of ours for only 55c is pretty damn cheap. I picked up a 100 roll. Should last me through to this time next year.
So, you may have heard about the numbnuts who's calling Tolkien a racist. When I first heard about it, I thought maybe it was because Tolkien didn't write a lot of black characters (or any... it's been decades since I read any Tolkien). Nope. It's because of the orcs. Apparently creating an entire evil race makes you a racist. :shrug: Anyway, the aforementioned numbnuts is an author few have heard of who recently published a collection of short stories with one of them being a rip-off... ahem, parody.... of Tolkien. Yep, pretty much using the whole thing to drum up sales. Big surprise. Bleh.
Got most of my Christmas shopping done. Don't feel bad. I only have three people to buy for - Mom, his Mom, and the Kid. I only have the Kid left and she prefers a check. I still send her a box of goodies, though. And a check.
Now I have to start thinking about Christmas cards. I am so not in the mood.
I suppose I ought to think about decorating the house, too. Meh. Early Thanksgiving really threw me off this year.
Okay, that more than enough out of me. How's about you?
