Stuff I'm Happy About

Since I think I've spent too many recent posts bitching and moaning about stuff, here are some random — very random — things about which I'm happy. 

I remembered, thanks to this neat piece at Tor.com, how much I adore Cordwainer Smith. He is, as the writer states, one of the Great Peculiars of SF&F. Anyone out there a reader of his work? 

In what is a first for me, or certainly for the first time in a long time, I started and completed a news feature story in the same day, without the nerves and trepidation which that task has lately engendered in me; what's more, I feel as if I've done a good job. 

After two days of undoubtedly necessary rain, we had a glorious fall day. 

I managed to confirm that my iPad and laptop bag, which I'd mistakenly left in a union meeting when I grabbed the wrong bag, was safe, and that I could swap the bags tomorrow. Relief!

I am not achy today, and that's good. 

Kitties!

And tomorrow is Friday. Hurrah!

Barrowmaaaaan!!!

This is a great article, especially when you consider the writer apparently either doesn't know much about JB, or is writing the piece for people he knows doesn't know much about JB. And JB comes across, once again, as a real sweetheart.
