    No weekend off here either, as a matter of fact, I'm working double the time due to being short handed. I have little time for anything, but work. It sucks big time. It would help if the pay was worth it, but...

    I know the feeling.

    Sorry I haven't been able to do any prompts guys, I can't even find time to blog or be at AW much.

    But one day I'll fly, and will either be free or I'll rule the world. For the safety and general well-being of the world let's hope it's the whole free thing that wins out.

    Joe Hill's twitter feed is getting to me, today. He was tweeting about having worked on a book for three years, and being ready for it to go, but missing it, too.

    I don't know why it makes me so sad to think about, but today, it really does.

    I need to go kill some dragons. On paper, mind you. Uh. Because in my WIP there is a dragon. And it destroys a town. And it needs to be stopped by a young fangirl in stolen armor.

    Thank you! I'm really working hard on the voice of the piece. Fortunately, I'm a fangirl so that at least will be fairly authentic.

    There's also buried treasure (well, a dragon's hoard), a minor love triangle, and some good old fashion defying authorities / self-empowering. The MC is far from lacking in agency, to say the least. Fangirls - nothing if not highly motivated.

    <Helm, thirty degrees positive in the bow planes. Prepare to surface. Thirty degrees positive on bow planes, aye, sir. Preparing to surface. Surface>

    I'm here, checking in to read posts on occasion, but generally taking a rest/vacation from posting (aka keeping my stupid mouth shut) and just gerally trying not to be the obnoxious a$$hole I can usually be.

    Vacation mostly, though. Went up to Grand Lake and went fishing this weekend - first time I've tried to drown lures in 15 years it seems like (last time was back around 2000 or 2001 for the great California blizzard that shut down I5).

    Abby, I'd call an exterminator before those things in the ceiling get out of control.

    Sorry, Abby... but-

    I so do NOT want kids if they turn into monsters as soon as they figure out the walking and talking stuff. And the washing... Dear god, why must she wear three changes of clothes a day, plus a fresh set of pajamas? Isn't there a rule against that kind of stuff somewhere? I'm just about done with one thing when something else needs taken care of - how am I meant to do anything when I'm spending half an hour wondering how to get crayon marks out of the chairs?

    I need alcohol. Pronto. Someone hook me up to an IV.

    Don't hold your breath...

    Kids are easy - once you know how to manage them.

    The trick is figuring out the kid. They're kinda all different.

    Having two kids, I can definitely say it doesn't have to happen that way.
