My 'puter's back!!! It was at the shop, poor baby, and it just got back, and I didn't even realize how much I missed it until I had in my hot little hands again. I much appreciate the loan of Kevin's old thing, but my baby is fast -- I have my cable modem again, and I even type faster. There was a lot of stuff I've been putting off because it was just too much of a nuisance trying to do it on his computer. I spent yesterday evening, much of last night, and this morning burning through another Lackey trilogy -- I'm close enough to the end that I'm going to finish it, but then I'm going to spend the rest of the afternoon working, and I can't tell you how happy that makes me.

I know, I'm a weirdo.

This evening, department buddies coming over for pizza, a game, and catching up on the break. This weekend, putting together a syllabus for tech writing this spring, and as much of the semester's reading as I can burn through. I'm taking a heavy academic load this time around, and the more I can get done in advance, the better. I may actually stick my tv back in the closet after next Monday -- my evenings are probably going to be spent reading for the next few months.

Heh. I remember, when I was a kid, wishing there was *some* job that would let me get paid to read. I didn't realize then that that was basically what a professor did... :-)

2:00 -- almost forgot. I meant to invite/ask/beg you all to consider voting in the Preditors & Editors Readers' Poll -- if you like Strange Horizons, if you've enjoyed our stories, poems, articles, etc., this is a good way of letting the world know that, and hopefully directing some more lovely people over to the magazine. Thanks!
