Today was one of those mad mad mad emotional days. My author copies of CYBORGIA arrived & they are very beautiful.

Missy is a brilliant cover designer & Mayapple makes such lovely books. Even the typeset is beautiful.

We had an awards ceremony at Z's school today & I got all weepy because I am a big dork & it's just been such an amazing thing to raise a child with profound disabilities & see him become a bright, funny, independent young man. I don't talk about it much on my blog but today was a big big BIG day. Next week is his last week of high school & college classes begin the first week of June. It's wonderful & bittersweet & I am feeling melancholy.

I am working a 10 to 7 shift tomorrow. Sometimes I go home for lunch to visit with my dog. He gets lonely & likes it when I share my potato chips. Is this weird?

The thunder is rumbling & I am drinking Constant Comment because I am out of Tazo Zen. I am almost done reading The Girl Who Played With Fire. I used to read a couple hundred pages a day, even when I was crazy busy but lately I am a slow reader. I fall asleep so easily. I might have narcolepsy or some kind of leechlike brain parasite that makes me too sleepy to do anything awesome like read detective novels or bake homemade peanut butter cookies.

There. Now you know everything.

as someone who was lucky enough to get a review proof (not that I'm bragging or anything) I have to say that what is inside the book is even more amazing than the lovely design.

Thanks, all!

Margaret, I'm so thrilled that you enjoyed CYBORGIA!!

Glad to hear that Constant Comment was there for you on that thundering day. (And I think it's lovely that you share your chips w/ your dog!) Take care!
