Sharpen your knives. It's GOP slaying day

I've been fairly quiet on the matter of the election —— aside from those Sarah Palin cartoons —— but, today, I am going to permit a degree of latitude to wax political. No, nothing especially insightful. Cheap shots, mostly, and all at the expense of the septuagenarian billionaire and the former beauty queen. Like this (thank you, Darren):



As for yesterday, the chapbook to accompany the limited edition of A is for Alien has finally been put to bed. Ironically, I have lavished more time and attention on the chapbook, B is for Beginnings, than on the actual collection. But most of the day was spent pulling Sirenia Digest #35 together, because there were about a thousand loose ends. Regardless, it went out late last night, and, by now, all subscribers should have a copy. I apologize for the fact that there is no artist interview this month. There was a last minute mix-up regarding our need for images, and they never arrived, so the interview has been bumped to #36, by which time we will hopefully have the images we need. Still, it's a very solid issue, I think. I especially hope that people enjoy seeing more of Joey Lafaye. Next month (which is actually later this month), expect more explicitly erotic material than this month. Two new vignettes is my plan. Oh, you'll also note that, at the last minute, as I was laying out the issue, I changed the title of the new story from "The Boon of Salmacis" to "I Am the Abyss and I Am the Light," after a favorite painting by Charles Sims.

Last night, after spaghetti and artichokes, there was WoW (of course). Shaharrazad can now summon a felsteed as her mount, complete with molten hooves and flaming nostrils, which is just too damn cool. I have my very own hell pony! Oh, and she made Lvl 31. I fear I am beginning to favour Shah over Voimakas and poor Mithwen. Anyway, she and Suraa slew humans at the Lordamere Interment Camp for a time, until certain magical artefacts were recovered. Then we headed east to the Arathi Highlands, where we took our orders from a Horde orc commander at the Hammerfall garrison, and so slew ogres and renegade trolls. Everything is easier on horseback. Suraa also has a pony, a warhorse, but he doesn't snort fire, or scald the earth when summoned. He likes carrots, though.

Tomorrow, the plan is to go to Boston, though I hear it's going to rain. So what. Rain beats this blue sky, any day.

Okay. The platypus says we gotta go vote now, then come home an obsess over the exit polls some more. Oh, don't worry. The anti-McCain/Palin jabs will only get nastier as the day wears on.

I was just in England and it's amazing how much the world is watching us right now. For the record, in the UK, it seems they're already calling Obama as the winner. Let's hope they're right!

From what I see, the whole world is watching anxiously, and much of it has assumed that Obama will win.

I have already cast my Republican-slaying vote! And BTW, that goddamned picture is killing me. It quite made my day. :) At least, until the final polls come in and The Barackstar wins--that'll make my day even MORE.

I already voted a week ago Sunday: thank Elvis for early voting in Texas. I plan to spend the rest of the day waiting for results...and reminding everyone that tomorrow is Guy Fawkes Day. (Considering that my paternal great-grandfather left the UK due to locals getting overly het up about my ancestor's choice of faith around that time of year, I'm not fond of the idea behind the celebration of Gunpowder Treason, and wishing me a "Happy Guy Fawkes Day" is a bit like wishing a "Happy Krystallnacht" to a German Jew. However, I'm very happy to remind everyone that, for all of his failings, Guy Fawkes was the last man to enter Parliament with honest intentions.)

By a random coincidence, my polling place is in Grace Cathedral on top of Nob Hill.

For your amusement, there is this. Keep moving your cursor around. It may be taken down tomorrow.

:-) I like that, "Republican slaying day"
Did my share of slaying too ...

And yes, the felsteed is very cool, isn't it?

(PS I'm a lurking fan-reader of your blog, hope it's ok that I posted here.)

Pllleeeeeaaaaaaasssseeeeeee, please write more of Joey Lafaye. Loved it.

And the other story reminded me of something, although I'm not sure what. Something good. I liked the place it took me.

Excited to see the next digest, as always.

They don't deserve dignified ones.

Mine has not yet arrived; I've e-mailed humglum.

Hell pony!

It's a utility that will nag you based on word counts for work you want to accomplish...
