I’m awake at a ridiculously early hour, and I don’t know why. Stupid whacked-out circadian rhythms.
Had a lovely day with dire_epiphany, astralfire, and their son. We hung out at their beautiful, forest-wilderness surrounded home, and chit-chatted. Made the acquaintance of their pride of felines: Maggie, Rajah, and Jasmine with much belly-rubbings to Maggie. Was amused to see Matthew try his hand at one of their video games (something to do with zombies), and got fed a feast, a feast I sez, of salad, lasagna, garlic bread, and strawberry cheesecake. Yumm! There was some talk of viewing a DVD, but we got so caught up with gabbing, that by the time we’d finished the cheesecake, it was already late, and Hobkin would have thrown a fit if we’d stayed out any longer. Much fun indeed. Just what Matthew and I both needed. Hope to do that again soon, maybe with the movie-watching even.
Also watched Hellboy, courtesy Netflix. Shiny. Comic booky to the extreme, but escapist flash-flash galore. I liked the Cthulu beasties. And the ending made me go “awwww.”
Received a 3-day rejection from the new market, Surreal. Pffft.
Been devouring the cyberpunk books I checked out from the library (*crunch crunch crunch*), and now I’m thinking I need to swing by a used bookstore to pick up some more. The selection the library had was pretty limited.
Oddly, my Sci-Fiction review of “Jumpers” by Mary Rosenblum is up at Tangent, but not my review of “The Anatomist’s Apprentice” which I sent before the one for “Jumpers.” Weird. Emailed editor and publisher to try to figure out if it was received or what.
