No, there's been no writing. And what the fuck point is there in making an entry about how there's been no writing since I finished "The Eighth Veil," way back on the ninth? Not a whole lot. At least I have moved beyond lying in bed, and have actually spent the last two days at the keyboard not writing. Somehow, that entails slightly less guilt than not writing from bed. Less guilt, more frustration. My masochistic "soul" probably figures the pain incurred staring at the blank MS Word "page" earns me less guilt. It's not writing, but at least it's another sort of suffering, so I'm cut some slack.

I will try again today. Today, I will try harder than I tried yesterday.

The snow hasn't all melted away, but it's going fast.

I admit I have paused in my not writing to gaze in horror at the internet kerfuffle surrounding Evelyn Evelyn. I know people are stupid, but sometimes I forget just how stupid people can be, especially on the goddamn internet. I've really had enough of the good soldiers of the web, fighting their ignorant, petty wars for truth, light, and squeamish political correctness. Spooky came into the office, night before last, to try and tell me about the people flaming Amanda over the Evelyn Evelyn backstory. And it's not often I'm rendered speechless, but speechless was I rendered. Finally, I was able to sputter something like, "These fuckwits know Ziggy Stardust was really David Bowie, right?" Yeah, it's that stupid. There are people who live to be offended, to disapprove. And no, I'm not linking to the stupid. If you want to see, use Google.

Life's to goddamn short for this nonsense. To quote Jeffrey Goines, "Fuck the bozos!"

Well, at least I do have these photographs, the railroad bridge photos I promised day before yesterday. I will refer you to Daughter of Hounds. If you have the trade paperback, you may turn to page 238. If you have the paperback, it's page 205. If you have the trade paperback and the paperback, I love you.

Personally I dream of hordes of undead eating them all. A giant space rock would be much too quick, less in your face (though to each their own and all that). Screams filling my ears as their flesh is torn from their bodies.

Sigh. Such a nice thought.

I hadn't heard about this whole EvelynEvelyn thing until now but just the surface of it makes me shake my head even more. People aren't even deserving of being called sheep somedays, as it's a slap in the snout of a sheep.

At least sheep are useful and taste good.

Oh...wait...

I know the feeling, and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter. I actually had someone complaining about a flyer for my Kareds (various propagation experiments that need a good home), as if I was endorsing plant torture. It's just like the morons who went off on the whole Bonsai Kitten gag, only worrying about plants. You know, organisms that can grow an entire genetically identical organism from a single cutting on their own.

Clearly, many humans cannot be trusted with humor.
