What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo looks for that lost shaker of salt

Spent the day not doing anything of value. Not what I should have been doing, but after this week it was as much as I could do. So another lost day. I can't afford those anymore.

Penguicon is open for registration. Still debating this. Depends on some various things, some of which I can't discuss (part of the hell of the week). But Penguicon has been one of those cons I've really wanted to get to. Plus, it'll be right after my Pharm Tech course ends and my b-day, so plus plus.

Joshua Blimes does the numbers on publishing hardback, mass market, and ebook. With normal royalties to the author, profits to the publisher and how they vary with the different formats and pricing schemes. And this, friends, is why an agent is a very, very good thing.

Mmmm, chocolate covered jalapenos. Just what you need for your hot love. (Pointed to by John)

Because we've learned so much from our past. Now, in truth, at my own high school you could hear three non-English languages being spoken that weren't taught by the school. And in most, the main instruction was how to cuss. But I don't remember anyone being scolded for teach their fellow students how to say "shit" in Greek. (Grokked from Tobias Buckell)

Been to Penguicon once. Alas, most years it falls during spring semester grade-a-thon. The earliest ones were in February, just a month after ConFusion.

Someday I'll be back.

Dr. Phil, I keep wanting to go to Penguicon and Wiscon. And there's usually something every year that scuttles those plans. Hopefully this year will be different. I need to make up my mind by the end of the month.
