Sunday. I’m awake and everyone else is asleep.

Hobkin woke me up this morning at 7am demanding his breakfast. Grumble. Now he’s slumbering under his hutch and Matthew’s dead asleep, and I’m wide awake. Typical.

Had a lovely evening last night with britzkrieg and her fiancĂ©. We went to see The Merry Wives of Windsor at the Shakespeare Tavern. Matthew and I have seen them do this play before and greatly enjoyed it, and they excelled with repetition. Laughed ourselves silly we did. And I think last night’s was better than the previous performance, if that’s possible. Got to meet britzkrieg‘s pride of felines. Quite a houseful of glowing eyes and velvet paws! Absolutely adorable. I greatly enjoy our get-togethers with them. We need to hang out again soon.

Also got a surprise email from gannet (waves), who found me via LJ. We know each other from high school but had lost contact. Delighted to have a chance to catch up with some of the old crowd. Nostalgia nostalgia nostalgia. Ain’t the Internet grand?

In less happy news, got a rejection from Argosy and Glimmer Train. At least the Argosy one had a scribbled note on it: “Not for us, but nice. Thanks & good luck.” So the editor seems to have read the whole story and thought well enough of it to put encouraging pen to page. But I didn’t even get a note from Glimmer Train. I just thought “hmm, they’re taking longer than usual” and went to their website to check the status of my submission. I was displeased to see that it had been marked “complete” (i.e. rejected). Don’t know for how long it had been processed without me getting word. But at least I know now.

These two rejected stories I consider two of my best and are a couple of my favorites. Sigh. Out they go again on Monday. They will find homes, dammit.

    Hang tough. *g* I just wrote a huge polemic over in somebody else’s lj about the trials and tribulations of selling short stories.

    It’s hard.
