"Fill the days at any cost."

Yesterday we finally got the sort of snow that I actually associate with winter in Providence. Wet, sticky, pretty. If we must have fucking snow, at least let it be easy on the eyes. I measured about 4.5". Right now the sun is out, but more snow is forecast for tonight. Currently, it's 32˚F out there, but supposedly it feels like 43˚F.

God, I feel like shit.

Work yesterday consisted of an interview for a volume on Lovecraft that's being published by the University of North Carolina Press. Well, and a bunch of email. I remember now the main reason I stopped giving interviews – they're too time consuming. Anything I spend that much time on, I need to be paid for. I've never been paid for an interview, and by now I've done, fuck only knows. I have a folder on my iMac with the interviews I've given by email, going back to 1998, the year that Silk was published (though I gave my first interview, to Writers Digest, in 1995). Counting yesterday's, there are 111 files in the folder. That's probably 75% of the interviews I've ever given. Which should explain why I'm sick of giving interviews.

You know, I'm just going to post photos from yesterday, because they're infinitely more interesting than anything I could say about yesterday. I went out twice yesterday, which is unusual.

Postscript (4:48 p.m.): I actually had no idea whatsoever that today was the release day for Pink Delicious. I suppose that's sort of fucked up. Anyway, Someone at Barnes & Noble's book blog, someone named Paul, says it's what you should read in February:

This second installment in the urban fantasy saga featuring foul-mouthed vampire and werewolf antihero Siobhan Quinn—written by the pseudonymous Caitlin R. Kiernan—succeeds not only as a brilliant parody of paranormal fantasy tropes but also as a grisly fusion of fantasy, mystery, and horror that is fueled by black-hearted humor and nonstop action: simply unforgettable. ~ "Paul"
