Skunk pictures!

Went to see The Incredibles yesterday, but the theater was swamped with screaming children, not to mention sold out of the time we wanted. We decided to postpone our movie outing until today. Hope it’ll be a little less crazy.

britzkrieg sent me the pix she took at our Halloween shindig, and it included one of my all time favorite snapshots of Hobkin and me:

Continuing the theme of skunk cuteness, yesterday Hobkin was feeling playful and then, of course, sleepy, so I picked up our handy dandy coolpix, and snapped away:


Hobkin versus the Tupperware


Tuckered out, because terrorizing plastic storage containers is hard work.


Writing Stuff:

Got the check for “The Storyteller’s Wife” and “Returning My Sister’s Face” from Realms of Fantasy yesterday. $$$! Still seems probable that both will be in the Feb’ 05 issue.

All seven of my backlogged Tangent reviews have finally been published. My editor was very apologetic for the delay.

Today: editing.

    Hobkin vs. the Tupperware! “Row’r.” Cute!

    I’m glad you like the picture. I think it’s a really good shot, too. You’re pretty photogenic (unlike me), and of course Hobkin is, too!

    Great shots of his tail…what a handsome guy. His fur seems to have a sheen to it…is that true-to-life or just thepic?

    so did you ever see The Incredibles? We did today, and it was AWESOME! I want to go again; just to pay attention to the story. I was so captivated by the animation:)

    Great to hear you got your checks. Was the payment time unusually long?

    Re: reviews.
    Yeah!

      This was the first time I’ve had a paycheck from Realms so I don’t have a comparison on their promptness, but overall, on the contrary, their payment time was unusually short! Most places pay on publication. RoF pays on acceptance (which translates to “pays about 60 days after they receive the signed contract back”).
