Hello everyone, I'm back! Well, okay - I've been back for a week or so, but much as the week following my last absence, obligations piled up while I wasn't looking and I've been performing catch-up work ever since.

Such catch-up work has included (but has not been limited to) such diverse elements as Christmas shopping for my rather ridiculously large family; wrapping said presents; performing a crap-ton of overdue yardwork; several rounds of laundry; a full round of other assorted houseworkings; filling out three email interviews plus follow-up questions; scanned all my receipts from the Epic Tour and subsequently invoiced the nice folks at Tor; filled out some tax paperwork and shipped it off, along with some of the holiday gifts (but not all of them yet); bought and trimmed a Christmas tree - our very first in our new house!; and generally unpacked, culled the inbox, and decompressed.

Sort of. I also wrote 5000 words on a short story that's due at the end of this month, and ultimately wrapped up a draft this evening - which I'll clean up over the weekend and send off to its intended editor. Then I need to sit down with the Fiddlehead editorial letter and get to work scrubbing that manuscript into shape.

So. Um. If I'm still quiet... or quiet-ish through the end of the year, I hope you'll forgive me. Once the Fiddlehead deadline is out of the way, I'll have a lot more room to wiggle, as it were, and will be dragging myself back into the sunlight. Or onto the internet on a more regular and likely frivolous basis. As the case may be.

Meanwhile, here's a short video of Greyson performing a magic trick - that is, making a cheese Krystal disappear. Behold the happy puppy dance, in all its bouncy glory! And Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Festive et cetera to all and sundry...

You are terribly productive!

I love how Greyson seems almost surprised that the Cheese Krystal has disappeared. "There must be more somewhere."

He always does that! And believe me, if I thought he could eat a whole bag of them for supper and not fart us to sleep at night, I'd give him more ...

Also, I always love your "super model 1979" photo. Oh, for the days when we could spend a whole summer in our bathing suits and not care a bit.

Aw, thanks! I kind of love that pic too. It's been a long time, baby ...
