Didja miss me? OMG, I've been SOOO BUSY. With day job stuff and copy edits on BLOOD KIN, there has been no time to just sit and relax.

Major project got launched on Monday (which is the reason I exited MJ early - really miss you guys!!!) and we've been working late hours throughout the week for post launch stuff.

In the meantime, right before I left for Boston, the copyedits came. Not a ginormous amount of work, but since the book had to be rushed, there were some fixes needed, plus another chapter to be written. I spent most weeknights just skimming through the easy stuff (repeated words, awkward phrasing, clarifying bits), then last night, a 7 hour marathon to finish, as I wrote to the accompaniment of Queen and Sarah McLachlan.

At 3:37 ack emma, file done, spellchecked, emailed and backed up.



The only reason I'm actually up is that my body will not stay asleep past 9:30 a.m., no matter how hard I try. Oh well, there's always time for a nap later.

I'm going to spend my weekend watching movies (Slumdog Millionaire is waiting for me), catching up on my shows and reading. (new Harry Dresden hot on my Kindle!) It's raining, but I don't care, because I'm going to be a sloth.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, Passover, Easter, etc.

Oh, and, speaking of peeps...the annual diorama.

Well, that was loads of fun...not.

Been spending a quiet weekend writing, thinking, watching episodes of Burn Notice. About a third of the way through the final 2 parter, poof - no electricity. I peeked outside - seemed the entire complex was dark.

Thank goodness my laptop had enough ambient light to let me find my lantern flashlight thingie. Spent about a half hour in the dark, still watching episodes (yay for long battery life on Nameless!).

Got the lights back briefly, and then once again, nothing for another half hour, 45 minutes. One thing I do know--my mini book light I just bought is awesome. Lets me read my Sony reader without any other light around. :)

Electricity seems to be back now and I'm crossing my fingers.

BTW, Burn Notice rocks!

Sadly, only one more day of holiday weekend left.

ETA: Oh yeah, about holiday gifting - I'm all about what John Scalzi said earlier today. Really. (including the bit about the car ::g::)

My japanese name is 中村 Nakamura (center of the village) 恵美 Emi (blessed with beauty)*.

Take your real japanese name generator! today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Name Generator Generator.

Off work early so I can pack/organize for my writing retreat. Yippee!!! Four days away from work. That, in itself, is a minor miracle.

It's still freaking cold around here, and way too many roads with treacherous patches of snice** to nab the unwary, but no matter. I'm home and will be here for the duration of the evening.

Now to catch up on, well, stuff.

* So I'm part of Hiro's family, and oddly enough, I have a co-worker named Emi.

** snice= snow+ice
