It Begins

FORGOT! Happy 20th Anniversary, Boojums and happy birthday, Mr. Poe!

The semester, that is. Actually it began yesterday, but I teach Mondays and Wednesdays so I all I had to do was, well -- get ready to teach today. And deal with all the administrative things I had ignored over the break.


I'm teaching the freshman medieval course, Writing for New Media and Masculinities & Medieval Film (probably for the last time for a while). I always know when it's starting, yet every time the term creeps upon me without me feeling prepared. So, no time to be witty today (assuming that is possible on other days) and before you even ask, Bertie -- no, I will not make my students stand on their desks.

If you need something to do, please consider voting for my novelette "High Plains Lazarus" in the Predators & Editors Best of 2010 poll over at Critters.

Ballot-box stuffing on request! Good luck. (And with the not getting the Barbaric Yawp...or bringing them from crayons to perfume--It's easy if you try...)

And clean my box. Really.

I belted it out like Lulu. Well, one down.

Kipper, I cleaned your box this morning! Whine whine whine, I tell you.

Well, you can delete them...
