Day before yesterday, Bill Schafer called to tell me that Murder of Angels got a good review from Locus (you have to wait forever for the magazine to show up on the stands here). That's three for three. Yesterday, Jennifer and I did the last bit of proofing on The Dry Salvages (all commas and hyphens). Now I need to e-mail it to Bill today. I really, really like this little book. It's something that I know I did right. Well, except for all those mistakes in the ARC. But, hey, that makes the ARCs more collectible, right?
Oh, I meant to mention Craig McCracken's Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Spooky and I watched the pilot on Friday night (perfect for Kid Night). It's some of the most delightful television I've seen in a long time. Tune in to the Cartoon Network next Friday night at 7 p.m. (EST) if you want to see what I mean.
Spooky spent much of yesterday obsessed with a huge adult female Golden Silk Spider (Nephila clavipes) hanging about outside our bedroom window. Here are a couple of pix she snapped of it:
Today, we were supposed to play D&D, but Jennifer bailed on us to drive to Birmingham for her mom's birthday. Some people need to get their priorities straight. So, I'll probably work on an essay I have to write for the Fiddler's Green souvenir book. The Sandman, The Dreaming and me. Something like that. Only, I'm still waiting for someone from the con to tell me how long it should be. Later today, we might see Titanic at the Fox (yeah, I know, but I'm a sucker for the SFX and costumes in Titanic and for the Fox Theatre). There's Nebari costume work that needs doing. And I'm about half asleep. So, we'll just have to see how and where this day will go.
