Bunny Beans

Still sick. But at least the sun was back in full today, and we made it to 76˚F. Spooky made me go out long enough to get fresh air and walk about the grounds a little (and take a very silly photo, below).

I tried to do the needed revisions to Section 14 of The Tindalos Asset, and I did make a little headway, but not nearly enough. It's one of the sections I need to expand a little to answer a valid issue raised by Jonathan Strahan after reading the ms. So, it's back to work on that tomorrow. I hope to be able to complete everything I need to complete on the novella's revisions by week's end, because I have to write something for Sirenia Digest 159, and I'd like to get the issue out before the beginning of May, because I need all of May to write the two new Dancy Flammarion stories I owe Subterranean Press.

And, of course, there's the paleo', too. One of first projects I'm taking on is the description of glyptosaur material from the Eocene of Alabama, and right now I'm doing a lot of background reading on the group. Today, I read "Late Paleocene glyptosaur (Reptilia: Anguidae) osteoderms from South Carolina, USA." And laid my hands on a copy of "Revision of the Paleogene genus Glyptosaurus (Reptilia: Anguidae)," a slightly intimidating 72 pg. monograph. I feel as if I need to learn it backwards and forwards.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Note that there's a copy of the original Subterranean Press edition of Black Helicopters (2013) that ends tomorrow.

That's what I did today, mostly. Last night, after posting my LJ entry, we watched Ariel Vromen's The Iceman (2012). Tonight, a third night of chili and an especially good new episode of Game of Thrones.

Later Taters,
