That was all thoroughly indulgent -- but the indulgence didn't stop there. I went on to Borders, where I had a not-healthy-but-tasty dinner (topped with chocolate moussecake) while reading the latest Tamora Pierce book (in hardcover). I then bought seven other books and came home (pausing briefly at the big sale but finding nothing of interest).
Read another book last night, Diana Wynne Jones's Howl's Moving Castle, which was very silly and fun, and am now reading another of hers. I did get mopey again last night when I finished the book, but I called up David and made him tell me bits of Russian history until I got sleepy. He's very good for that...
In any case -- I think once I finish the book I'm reading, I may try to switch to being productive again. I'm feeling a fair bit better today (mustn't overdo, mustn't overdo) and have grand plans for contracts, revising a story, interviewing a student for the U of C (I do enjoy that), and maybe starting to put the POD book together. We're still working out the details, but I'm hopeful that it'll actually happen...and if it does, then I need to make up a manuscript. Going to be a fair bit of work doing the conversions -- I probably ought to see if Jed can make it easier for me somehow.
Have a good weekend, munchkins. If you're having beautiful fall weather like we are, try to get out and enjoy it. (Karina, I wish you were here -- it would be great fun photographing you against all these gorgeous leaves...)
