Monday is better than Sunday

I'd be appalled at Arnold Schwarzenegger's "girlie men" speech, but I'm still too busy being appalled that the SoB was elected Governor of California in the first frelling place. You get what you pay for. Or, in this case, what you vote for (assuming there's a difference). I might, however, have the ability to be appalled — or at least amused — at the idiots who are appalled that Schwarzenegger isn't sorry for what he said.

I'm trying hard to ignore the news these days. The Schwarzenegger thing was a headline at AOL, which I use for its ftp programme, so I saw it and was "compelled" to read the article.

I suppose this will be short. There's really nothing to say. Yesterday I gamed from 2 p.m. until 11 p.m. (with some Thai take-out thrown in). Then I came home, and Spooky and I watched another episode of the second season of Six Feet Under. Then I brushed my teeth and went to bed.

Today, we proofread The Dry Salvages, and I'm going to try to have time to go over "The Pearl Diver" again. And I need to send it off to two or three people, to get opinions that I will most likely summarily ignore. But. As for The Dry Salvages, I think I'm very proud of this book. I was this proud of Low Red Moon, though no one much seemed to care. Once I'm done with Daughter of Hounds, I think that The Dry Salvages might be the direction that I'd like to see my work go.

And that's it for today. Don't forget the eBay auctions. Drive safely. Mind the gap.

Oh, I almost forgot. My thanks to Quendi (Meh'dra) for the following shot of Chiana from Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars. I have no idea what's up with Chi's eyes.
