10 Great Things About Today

1) An all-day back-and-forth with one of my best playtesters, who has built a Lego model of the adventure location, with moving parts.
2) After six months of sack lunches or bad quickie food, there's a new cafeteria right across the street from my office.
3) My boss announced my promotion to my colleagues, and praised my work. Promotions rock.
4) Resolving a flame war among my colleagues. Sometimes, it's good to be the peacemaker.
5) Found three great new tracks for my MP3 player: Godless by the Dandy Warhols, Brand New Low by Treble Charger, The Joker covered by Spearhead.
6) A check for a magazine article that saw print months ago was waiting when I got home. Getting paid rules.
7) My second short story was released in PDF form, as part of a collection with Jeff Grubb, Monte Cook, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Ed Greenwood, Stan!, Kate Novak, Bruce Cordell, and other notables. The book is called The Dragons' Return, and my short is called "Pride." Getting published always makes my week.
8) Ate a delicious dinner at Cafe Flora with my lovely wife, during which meal I discovered that capers can be fried.
9) Drove home on the wet, rain-slicked streets, winding through Seattle's Arborteum. I love zigging and zagging among the tree trunks and bridges.
10) Home again.

I can see why you're pleased. Nice day.

Me & Jilli spent the day being unwell. Guess the luck just kind of ebbs & flows, doesn't it? The total must be a required constant or something...

Sorry to hear you and Jilli are ill. I promise today will be a suckier day than yesterday for me, and thus (according to the theory you propose) a better day for you and yours. :)

What an excellent day! Congrats on the story! And tell me, because I must know, where to find Spearhead doing "The Joker"!

It's on Soul Sides but hurry, because it's about to drop off the site.

Try this direct link, or scroll down. I highly recommend Soul Sides for getting your groove on.

Hell, maybe I should post about audio blogs one of these days. I think a lot of folks already know, but it can't hurt to share some favorites.

Great barrel of news all around, glad to hear it.

Do post about audio blogs. I'm in the stone age when it comes to organizing my music. I have this great sound system hooked up to my PC. I just need to get on the ball about assembling a good selection of tunes, so . . .

Got it! Thanks.

I for one would be interested in hearing about audio blogs.
