"I missed you, but I haven't met you."

On this, the morning before my -08 birthday, I find myself quoting one of Spooky's high-school history teachers: "If you assume, it makes an ass out of you and me." Can I exchange this day for the apocalypse, please? Big space rock, please?

Happy birthday to Billy (docbrite), whom I miss dearly, and for whom I wish a kinder year to come.

Depending who you ask, today is either Geek or Nerd Pride Day. I prefer geek, but whichever. In honor of this, I leave you with the Guild's "I'm The One That's Cool":



Reaching for the Slide Rule and Polyhedral Dice,
Aunt Beast, La Cabrita

My copy of The Drowning Girl arrived today. This is what happens when you delete an old email address and have forgotten to update your Kickstarter account with the new one. You miss emails from two months back. Luckily I got in touch with Kyle and he hooked me up with my book and photos. It all looks marvelous and I can't wait to start reading it this weekend.

And accordingly, it's also Towel Day. May yours be panic free.

I'll take "geek" over "nerd", every time.

I had a marvelous reward from The Drowning Girl Kickstarter project arrive today and I'm totally thrilled. Thank you, and Kathryn and Kyle and all involved the trailer totally rocked!

I was hoping you'd be able to visit the ocean for your birthday, but I fear the human squalor of Memorial Day Weekend may hinder your beach adventures. I am hoping you find a way to celebrate your birthday in a truly special way. You deserve an excellent birthday celebration.

I'm so glad people are getting those!

I'm afraid there will be no ocean today, for precisely that reason. Maybe next week, though.
