• Bang! #
  • I shot an AK-47 yesterday. It was a letdown; I much preferred the 12-gauge shotgun. #
  • Arms sore from heavy lifting; no bruising (yet?). #
  • Short story day. Later :) #
  • Holy Rejection Day, Batman! #
  • I just gave up yesterday, between being sore (no bruises!), attack of PMS, and "I'M NEVER GOING TO BE PUBLISHED WAAAAAH" yesterday. #
  • On another note, I wrote "it's all good" to someone this morning and meant it. I must have a brain lesion. #
  • First task: resending rejected stories. It's okay, babies. *I* love you. #
  • Also, I'm on a library diet. No more library books until I get this set (of fifteen) out the door. #
  • I may break down and buy the next Fullmetal Alchemist, though. IF I have an appreciable victory. #
  • Dear fate, if you get me published I will buy someone else's book, thus extending the chain of good fortune. #
  • Dear fate, if you don't get me published, I will still buy that book, so do good by me anyway, 'kay? #
  • I don't care for melon; too unabashedly sweet. But: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2009/08/grilled_chicken_breasts_with_honeydew_salsa #
  • Ooh, it's a Lora Zarubin recipe, too. I liked her "I Am Almost Always Hungry" cookbook a LOT. #
  • That reminds me, I have basil to grind up into pesto today. #

  • Okay, only four rejections yesterday, not five. #
  • Pesto! Figured out how to do it in the blender, too: start with a tiny amount of Canola oil, grind everything up, fold in olive oil & cheese #
  • Pesto: 2 bunches basil leaves, 5 cloves garlic, 1 c pine nuts, 1/2 c parm/romano finely grated, approx 3/4 c best EVOO, 2 t canola. #
  • Closer to the Beeg Announcement…come on, come on… #
  • C19 Chance done: "A dead demon, well, what was it dead for? Here?" #
  • Considering "do what thou wilt" as a curse on the shortsighted. #
  • I'm working on the smoking story. Jeez, it's intense. #
  • I wish I had a decent title. So far: "A world without hate is not this world." A character says that. And not the ditzy one, either. #
  • Dance Me In – Sons and Daughters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9mvsMUKWoE #
  • Trying to prioritize. Ugngh. #
  • It's amazing how good a personal rejection feels. I guess I'm just easy that way. #
  • Why liberals should love 2nd amendment: http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2010/7/4/881431/-Why-liberals-should-love-the-Second-Amendment #
  • C21 Chance: The demon stopped in front of Aloysius and roared, “What were you doing in my house?” #
  • Fullmetal Alchemist 23 – I really like Colonel Armstrong. Really. She has no ruth. #
  • Scott Pilgrim 1 – Good goofy. #
  • What if you couldn't hire an accountant if you were bad at taxes? #
  • What if you couldn't hire a decorator unless you knew your color wheel? #
  • What if you couldn't hire a secretary unless you could prove you were a PowerPoint master? #
  • I don't expect the clients to be able to communicate through writing. I love people who are looking for "writters," because I can help. #
  • If one task you're hired for is to communicate professionally, should your clients have to jump through hoops to prove their skills in that? #
  • So…http://queryshark.blogspot.com/2010/07/166.html #
  • Pathfinder – Laura E Reeve: I sense This Is Not Over. Ending went by too quickly. #
