"Don't you think you'll be better off without me tied around neck?"

Yesterday it was warm enough that I went to the market without my coat. Today, the cold is back. Currently, it's 35˚F, with the windchill at 22˚F. Tonight, we'll reach a low of 17˚F, with a windchill of 1˚F. But we'll be back in the fifties by Sunday. Winter is dying. I made it through another one without buying a new coat (the grey coat I usually wear, I bought it in December 2001).

Yesterday brought an offer to teach at college writing workshop* and someone else wanting to translate "Galápagos" into Czech. I received a royalty check for $1.13. But I didn't get any writing done. Germination turned into confusion a few days back. I've shelved "The Love Song of J. Alfred Morlock" (I'll come back to it), and I'm writing a different piece for Sirenia Digest #121.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions.

Last night, we saw Jay Roach's Trumbo (2015), which I thought was quite good despite the multitude of historical inaccuracies.

Yes, well. Every blog entry can't be solid fucking titillating gold, now can it?

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

    Sunny and warmish today. An autumnal wide carnivorous sky held at bay by the twin bulwarks of Red and Shades mountains. Our high was 71˚F. I wrote…
