Skunk waking and more meds

Took a Tramadol to ease the wingstubs and it knocked me out pretty hard. All woozy now. *wobble* Wouldn’t even be up, except some fuzzy beastie who will remain Hobkin was hungry and would not be fobbed off by my “Mmm wha? It’s not breakfast-time yet . . . skunk, go ‘way. Shoo!” He’s now curled up beside me being all cute and cuddly, so at least I feel appreciated.

The doc decided to up my prescription dose another 20Mg (to 60Mg/day for anyone keeping track). When I tried to beg off any more monthly follow-ups, as I suspected, he said no, but he did agree to put off the next one by two months. Eh, better than nothing. And he did adjust the dosage so there’s a legit. reason for him to want to check-in with me. Thibbity.

fosteronfilm‘s brother will be arriving at Chez Foster this evening. Our house is still deplorably messy despite a flurry of vacuuming, tidying, and miscellaneous scrubbing. Both brothers have August birthdays, so I baked a cake. Think I’ll also bake some beer bread for tonight. Ain’t I just the domestic diva?


Writing Stuff

Received a 33-day “a good read and I enjoyed its strange originality” bounce from Strange Horizons with a “look forward to your next.”

Also queried Son and Foe about a submission after it passed the 30-day mark, and it seems my story fell through a crack or two and never got read. Happily, thanks to my query, it’s been found and is now being evaluated.

Many thank-you notes I need to pen to Critters folks. Instead, I think I’ll have a nap . . . snzzzzzz.

    Mmm…beer bread and cake…

    Wait. Beer bread? What brand of beer? And how do you eat that? Do you butter it? Do you have buttered beer bread?

      Well, where did you think buttered beer came from?

      You haven’t had my beer bread? It’s quite good, if I say so myself. In the past, I’ve used Guinness, but this time around I’m trying Killian’s Red. I’ll definitely bake some the next time you swing by for dinner.

        I most certainly have not! *engage pout*

        Oh! Well. Good then! *power down pout*

        What? Beer bread? I’m just getting used to the idea of zucchini chocolate cake by . My bakeosphere can’t take that much change in a week!

        The nailbiting begins on my Strange Horizons sub – it’s been 42 days for me. Of course, I always jinx it when I mention it.

          Beer bread, yup. Mmmmy. The beer replaces all of the wet ingredients as well as the yeast. The carbonation and yeast in the beer makes the rise/wait cycle unnecessary so it’s easy to make. Just mix everything and pop it in the oven. No kneading required. And the baking removes the alcohol as well. It makes a hearty, rich-tasting bread.

          Good luck on your SH submission!

    I am so sorry those nasty wingstubs are bothering you again! Surely sooner or later your wings will go ahead and sprout, and you’ll be able to fly?

    On a totally unrelated note, today was the first chance I had to read ‘Second Daughter’ (I tried to read it earlier this week, and my computer crashed. Go figure.) It’s beautiful, Eugie! Absolutely beautiful; I loved it. No surprise there, of course; you wrote it and Bill accepted it, which is a pretty good indication that it would be good. But it was even better than I expected. Hopefully we’ll see lots more Eugie-submissions at TSR in the near future!

    (And maybe that bit of well-deserved praise will make the wingstubs feel so ashamed of hurting such a wonderful writer that they’ll slink off in shame and never be heard from again!)

  3. Feel better soon, Eugie.
