Hobkin and me this week. Voices for the Cure now out

Took the MARTA this morning with fosteronfilm. He continued on to Hartsfield-Jackson while I got off at my regular stop. The hubby is heading up to Illinois for the week to visit his mom. I was going to go with, but I sort of burned up all my vacation time to do Launch Pad. Launch Pad was absolutely (incredibly, fabulously!) awesome, but it means it’s just Hobkin and me this week. Fortunately, my ankle feels much better than it did this weekend, and I don’t think I’ll have any trouble as long as I don’t do anything stupid, like re-injure it.

I am, however, a bit trepidatious about Hobkin. Normally, the fuzzwit gets lunch at noonish, fed to him by fosteronfilm. But of course, I’m at work at noon and can’t pop by the house to feed him, working as I do in the heart of Atlanta. So I’m just going to give him extra large breakfasts before I head out in the AM. Big breakfast notwithstanding, I suspect that when noon comes around, he’s still going to be looking for his meal. And this being the first day that Hobkin will have to skip lunch, I anticipate much skunky ire and associated glaring when I get home.


Writing Stuff

Maybe I’ll get vasty gobs of writing done this week. Maybe.

    I don’t know what the cost is, but at the PetSmart they have a gizmo that is essentially a timed cat-feeder….a covered dis (three I think, maybe more) that at pre-set times will spring open to revel food within… and fresh for being covered.
    …That is I found the price $40 oof, for a week, but here it is (ridiculous url): http://www.petsmart.com/global/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524441781301&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302025542&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=2534374302023690&bmUID=1186499751126&itemNo=31&Nao=24&In=Cat&N=2025542&Ne=2

    Hobkin should be okay. At the moment our cats get fed through the day because my mum’s at home, but on days when no one’s in they’re fine. (And they don’t hunt — Melissa is too old and Kheldar is too stupid — so our food is the only food they get unless Melissa finds an already-killed animal. Kheldar doesn’t realise he’s meant to eat small animals.) I just make sure I put down lots of food before I leave.

    I’ve been meaning to ask:

    How did you come to have a skunk for a pet?

    Hello, I was just wandering around Livejournal. Saw your bio page, this part in particular: “I’m a science fiction, fantasy, horror, and children’s lit. writer, a columnist, and an editor.”

    I read through it three times, each time seeing “columnist” as “communist”. Which for some reason has amused me to such a large degree that I felt the need to say so.

    Hi. 🙂
