"There was one thing we weren't really thinking of, and that's money."

Sunny and windy and much cooler today, only 55˚F at this moment. We still have a wind advisory.

Yesterday was consumed by proofreading. I was still proofreading at 10 p.m., but, even so, I did not manage to finish. I made it through "Latitude 41°21'45.89"N, Longitude 71°29'0.62"W" (Sirenia Digest #71, October 2011), "Another Tale of Two Cities" (Sirenia Digest #72, November 2011), "Blast the Human Flower" (Sirenia Digest #73, December 2011), "Cammufare" (Sirenia Digest #74, January 2012), "Here Is No Why" (Sirenia Digest #75, February 2012), "Hauplatte/Gegenplatte" (Sirenia Digest #77, April 2012), and "Sanderlings (2010; Subterranean Press)." But I still have to read "Interstate Love Song" to be finished with Dear Sweet Filthy World, and I want to make another stab at writing a short preface.

Monday is the last day I will permit to be devoured by this round of proofreading. Then, I have a story to write for a very patient editor, and then I am pushing everything aside to get back to the Next New Novel. Please.

Last night we watched more RuPaul's Drag Race (having finished Season Four, we're on Season Six) and Alex Berry's Jinkx Monsoon documentary, Drag Becomes Him (2015), which I recommend unconditionally. Sweet and sexy and hilarious.

I'll have more NYC photos tomorrow.

Now, it's time to make the doughnuts.
