Friday miscellany

Happy Friday!

Preparation for Viable Paradise continues apace. I went to Target for some food, a pair of leggings, and a new mini blender, and I also left with 3 new long-sleeved shirts and 4 bags of Halloween candy in addition. (Pumpkin spice M&Ms: pretty good. Caramel apple Milky Ways: OK. It's the same base as the Midnights, just flavored with apple.)

I saw a display of shirts as I was walking down one of the main aisles, and I said "oh hey, I could use these." So I got 3: red, purple, and brown. I didn't know they were buy 2 get $4 off, or I'd have gotten 4. Long-sleeved t-shirts are useful!

I need to make a packing list. I like lists; they keep me from forgetting important things.

In 16 days, I'm going to be on my way to Boston (where I'm getting a ride from a friend down to the island). Nervous! I've read something from all the instructors except Steven Gould; my library doesn't have any of his books. Except there was a change of plans, and Sherwood Smith can't come, so Scott Lynch is taking her place. Which means the copy of The Lies of Locke Lamora I bought last week for $0.99 on sale just got moved higher on my reading list. It's on my e-reader now.

I leave you with a video of a cat (not one of mine) with the most adorable squeaky meow.

I adored Lies of Locke Lamora. Hope you enjoy it, too, and I'm looking forward to workshopping with you in a few weeks. It should be a splendid time.
