Good Things

August begins with a bit of happy literary news:

Janelle Elyse Kihlstrom had reviewed CYBORGIA at Melusine! Go visit.


This morning I woke up to a lovely monster storm. There's something cozy about the rain; it reminds me of playing checkers inside and baking vanilla cupcakes and haunted houses.

I am thinking about autumn. I am ready for summer to be over. You can almost smell the harvest coming, all smoky and crisp. I want apples and pumpkins and mums and dry leaves under my feet. I want to switch from iced Luzianne to hot chai. Or perhaps a spicy cider.


I woke up early to make these wonderful muffins that taste like donuts. Guh and double guh. I did a crapload of laundry at 6 in the a.m. and I am working tonight until 10. Who needs sleep anyway? I am hella efficient. Ha.

Cool! Congrats! And, a la random coincidii, I just mentioned electric sheep in my blog!

(My word verification for today is "batch," which, coincidentally, must mean muffins that taste like donuts!)

I like the word "coincidii"....

It would make an excellent word verification, too.
