I arrived at the store this morning to see a large stack of cartons from UPS.

First I was: What are all these boxes doing here on a Thursday!?!?!

Then I was: Ooh, shiny!

The S word


We've had 2 snowfalls already this month and it's raining today with a chance of snow. Temps have been holding 20 degrees below normal all week. Voice is still iffy. Haven't been on a bike in a week. Sigh. I can ride in the cold, but with my system still recovering and the rain, I'm not hitting the trails today. That's a real shame as I took today and tomorrow off since Kate is out of school. I'm listening to the Mono Beatles collection and catching up on my short story reading. Vista spent all morning updating itself. Maybe it will work as advertised finally. Don't bet on it.

the_feral_cat  and I are going to see Kim Harrison tonight. We were disappointed when she didn't make it here this Spring, so it's nice to have a chance to see her again. I should be able to manage a conversation with my crackly voice tonight.

FallCon 09

Buck and I went to FallCon yesterday at the State Fairgrounds. Brrr! It was cold walking from the lot to the Con. It's the first con we've been to, so it was also a chance to plan for next year. I knew a couple people that were there and one of Buck's co-workers at Target had a booth there. Unfortunately I have some virus that gave me a very sore throat on Saturday and since I was Lead worker at the 'berry that day I was talking quite a bit. The result is I have no voice. I feel like our old cat, Sara, who would meow but nothing came out. I would have liked to have had more discussions with the attendees, but it was pretty hard to get any volume. I did point out that superheroines would have a particulary tough time of it in Minnesota. Those revealing costumes loose something when the heroine has a parka on to keep warm. Mr. Incedible always seemed to be eating. I got some Green Lantern titles from a fellow from Iowa, and a few JLA titles from the Half Price Books booth. Good deals, but I went a touch over budget. I did have a nice time chatting with artist, Mark Sparacio. I picked up some of his work. Sadly, he was out of the Vampirella print. Oh well, there's always next year. Here's his site. It was a fun afternoon and this fanboy had a great time.

Today I still have no voice, it is snowing out and I need to clean the basement.


I Feel Fine

I have found you can't have to many Beatles albums. Eight copies of Rubber Soul and counting.
