"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

* I said yes. Details TBA.
