O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
This arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.

Linkee-poo goes to the doctor

and this is what he say… not my Achilles Tendon, but where it joins to the muscles. That means no surgery, I'm okay with putting weight on it and driving (yippie, what I had been doing anyway), I should wear my boot (from leg break), and use crutches to support my walking for a while. No dancing, but good news. I'm looking at a few months at most (supposedly). So yeah.

But since I had a long doctor's appointment today, my internet time is almost all used up.

Kameron Hurley on the self-sabotaging writer. Lots of good things exposing a lot of neurosis writers face and the difficulty of accepting success. Hmm, missed her at Confusion, but then I missed a lot of people at Confusion. Her latest book did get some buzz play, though. (Grokked from Jennifer Jackson)

Some ol' timey steam heaters for your Steam Punky goodness.

Writer Unboxed is looking for your vote on their logo. As a design snob, I'm not entirely in love with any, but I can see which one I like the most.

Erm, actually, Steve, I think we were on a panel together...(Killer Parties). You were very quiet, as I recall!

Kameron, *THAT'S IT!* I blame the drugs for not remembering that. I did remember your face (checked the bio pages on your site), but my brain didn't make the connection. My bad.

Kameron, in all seriousness, it's part of my own neurosis. I hit your blog through Jennifer Jackson's link salad post today. Which in my head puts in you into the "famous" category, and I (in my own head/neurosis) don't "know" famous people. So there is that disconnect in my brain.

It's sort of like how I've met John Scalzi. I think we've seen enough of each other than if we met in passing at the mall and I said, "Hey, John" he would remember me. But when I think of the John I know and the John who write's those kick-ass novels and the Whatever, there's a mental firewall there. Because I couldn't "know" someone that famous.

Hee hee. No big deal. Thought it was a bit funny, really!
