Month is half over -- whoosh!

Well, looks like I'm working from home today, which is fine; lord knows I have enough work to do. But first some puttering -- I'm cleaning up my web pages (anyone know if pico has a search & replace function? I know ctrl-w will search for me, but I want it to replace as well, automatically...) and adding things. I have this directory full of stuff I've been meaning to add to the web pages...

I did add a new poem to the Parker section, despite my stated intention to try to stick to one or two poems per poet, because it was just too appropriate. Besides, her poems are short. Okay, I know that's not a good reason. Well, if you like them, buy a book, dang it! Maybe I *will* set up that Amazon bookstore stuff properly, to make it easy for people to buy these poets' (and others') books through me.

The other exciting news is that Ellen had her baby! (Well, Ellen and Tim, I suppose, but considering that it was a difficult birth, I'm inclined to give more of the credit to Ellen...) The redhaired munchkin is appparently happy and well now. I admit to finding this all a bit disconcerting; Ellen is the first of my college friends to actually do the kids thing, though several of us intend to. She *is* a few years older than me, though, which is some comfort. *And* she's been gainfully employed for quite a while, like a real grown-up...

Ellen and Tim live off in the middle of nowhere somewhere, but if they're ever in the area, I'm going to spoil that kid rotten. I may not know how I'll do as a parent, but I plan to be a fabulous aunt...

10:15. Added some funnies, on light bulbs and haiku.

11:30. Okay, okay, I fixed the links! Actually, someone sent me a mail hours ago about it, and I thought, 'oh, I'll do it later'...and the next time I logged in, there were two more mails waiting on it. Good thing David's out of town camping with Heather or *he'd* be poking at me too...

*grin* I am, of course, actually very appreciative. I like accuracy.

It was too damn hot today. Worked through the morning, but by 2 o'clock it was just too painful to think. I read books instead. I started by reading more of the Kress, but then *that* seemed like too much work, so I reread some old Mercedes Lackey instead, some favorites that recently reappeared on my bookshelves. Juvenile fiction was about all my brain could handle in that weather -- and it's *still* a little too warm for comfort. I probably should have had my nightly tea iced instead of hot.

Now if I'd only napped instead of reading, I could be working now...tomorrow I go to an air-conditioned cafe for the afternoon, so there.

Okay, I'm babbling. 'Night, all.
