Stayed up too late last night talking to Kevin, and as a result just woke up (it's 11-ish). Which kind of messes up my work plans for the day -- I may just take it off and work tomorrow. We'll see. I'm going to go dancing tonight, though -- square dancing, whoo-hoo! :-) Kevin's going to drop me off and pick me up...trying to get that boy to dance (*any* kind of dance, lest you think he only objects to weirdo dances like square dancing) is like trying to...well, trying to do something really hard.
What, you wanted a better metaphor than that? What do you think I am, a writer?
Have a good day, people!
9:00 -- Well, for complicated reasons, didn't end up dancing tonight. Ah, well. Did do a *lot* of reading. Finished _The Night Watch_ yesterday, actually -- some beautiful passages in there. Read the new Elizabeth Moon, the sequel to _Once a Hero_...oh, I'm forgetting the title. Good romp, though - lots of fun. And finished Maxine Hong Kingston's _The Woman Warrior_, which was really stunning and reminded me all over again why I got so excited about the creative nonfiction class last spring. I highly recommend this book. The subtitle is "A Girlhood Among Ghosts", and the ghost stories she weaves into it are enthralling.
I have this vague urge to write (which is why I'm typing this), but nothing to write about. Drives me crazy.
