No telephones yesterday, and only a minimum of e-mail. We went for a walk at dusk. No bats, but lots of cats and two truly enormous orb weavers. I read several more chapters of Daniel Pinchbeck's Breaking Open the Head. I added mine and Spooky's names to the database of names that will be recorded on a CD to be placed on board the New Horizons craft, NASA's Pluto-Kuiper Belt Mission, and just managed to beat the deadline, which I believe was this morning. Our names will journey to Pluto and beyond. I played an hour or so of Final Fantasy X-2, then read the prologue and afterword to Low Red Moon. I believe it was a little after 2 a.m. when I finally got to sleep.
Neil's about to begin the Anansi Boys tour. I've probably spoken with him for the last time until it's done. But we have MiirrorMask opening on the 30th at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema here in Atlanta, so that's something to smile about. And here's a list of threatres by state. And speaking of Neil, and speaking of Poppy, too, alt.fan.thingie is auctioning ten Neil items on eBay and all proceeds got to Poppy and Chris. Thank you, thingies.
Now, behold (drum roll, blare of trumpets, gnashing of teeth) Monster Doodle Sculpture #2 (which today goes away to live with Cam in Tennessee). Note that this one is a tripodial amorphous blob, whereas the first was merely bipodial. Width (left to right pseudopod): 80 mm. Length (eye bulge to tip of posterior pseudopod): 65 mm.
Surely that's enough for one entry, except to remind you that there's less than one day remaining on the Wrong Things auction, the proceeds of which go to benefit Poppy and Chris. Please bid, if you are able.
