Yesterday managed to be exceptionally grim, and I suppose I'll blame the weather. Today's an aftershock. But at least it's a little warmer, currently 73˚F. Still cloudy, though.

Sitting here, just before I began this entry, it occurred to me that babies born the day that Elizabeth committed suicide will soon turn twenty. Which utterly fucking blows my mind.

Yesterday was spent on Alabaster: The Good, the Bad, and the Bird, checking over art, proofing the letterer's lettering, etc. Today I hope to finish compiling the manuscript for Houses Under the Sea: Mythos Tales.

The March issue of the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology finally showed up yesterday.

It's an exciting goddamn life.
