Laundry and Boxes and BBQ

Sunny here, with the clouds building into thunderheads. Currently, it's 88˚F, with the heat index at 97˚F, humidity at 63%.

Yesterday I got some stuff together for Subterranean Press (the "lost" corrected galleys for The Dinosaur Tourist) and signed contracts for my NEXT new SubPress short-fiction collection, the one AFTER The Dinosaur Tourist (TBA), and I put together Sirenia Digest 149 and got it out to subscribers. And then we took a load of boxes – all eBay stock books – out to my mom's in Leeds. We decided to just stay the night and got dinner from the Temple of the Tasty Pig, also known as Rusty's. We feasted on barbecue, plus fried okra, black-eyed peas, and collard greens with sausage. And then we watched the season finale of RuPaul's Drag Race again. That was yesterday.

It was good to get away from the box canyon (and to diminish its size slightly) and the city and spend a night in the country. I did a bunch of laundry. Toady, we're taking another load of books and then coming back to Birmingham (where I am now).

Yesterday I had my first cigarette since last August.

Anyway, enough for now.

Later Taters,

7:37 p.m.

I look forward to having a copy of The Dinosaur Tourist in my hands and to hearing more about the new SubPress collection.

I hope your day is a good one!

Thank you for Sirenia Digest 149, which I hope to read in a pocket of calm in the middle of the night.

Top of everyone's move list should be find the good BBQ places. The one closest to us has the most perfect potato wedges, tender but not mushy inside. We already ate dinner tonight, and they are closed on Sunday, but on Monday I think BBQ needs to be found for us.
