wolf eyes

Okay, maybe I don't suck after all.

So, I started to write the "a vampire and a mechanic walk into a bar" story...and then I realized that most of the dialogue could be modified for the current piece. Alcohol is a wonderful lubricant, and I got them railing about their respective bosses and members of the opposite sex in their lives... and now we have kissage. Yay. And Mal walking in. *snerk*

In other news, Da Boy came running into the house this morning and said "Bridget bit a bird!" And at first I was all, oh, good, dog finally got some of her own back, because the magpies and starlings steal her food all the time. And then I go out to see what's the what...

And it was a mourning dove. :(

At first, I thought it was okay except for some missing tail feathers, so I put it in the front yard, and it walked away and seemed okay. But after awhile, it hadn't moved from where it stopped, so I called animal control, and they asked me to put it in a box for them, and they just came and got it. During the recapture, I noticed that it does have a wing injury. So, they're probably going to put it to sleep. :(

But I got to meet the new neighbor lady, and she has a four-year-old boy and a 20-month-old little girl, and is very nice, and Da Boy is playing over at their house right now. *does a little dance* Peace and quiet! Maybe I'll get to finish this thing!

The random_urges fic-o-doom has a finis at the end of it. I just need a title and a last-minute edit, and to format it into chapters (because, dude...7000 words). Go, me!

Da Boy requested "The Incredibles" tonight, and I was only too happy to oblige. OMG I LOVE THIS MOVIE.

In writercon news, I went to the bank and got some usable money, so that's taken care of. And another fic came in for the Writer's Salon...so I have to go to Wally World and pick up another folder for it. I still haven't critted the other four. *wibbles* I also need to pack, but that shouldn't really take long, because I'm a very light packer.

And why did no one tell me that Alan Dean Foster had written a trilogy of books wherein a guy gets kidnaped by aliens so they can sell him as a pet because he's a "cute" alien himself? And there's a talking dog! DUDES!

Also, I just finished jimbutcher's first "Codex Alera" book, and it was made of awesome. OMG I love that man. As a writer, of course.

WriterCon in two days. *flails*

ETA: LICORICE ALTOIDS. *flails some more* Someone check my pulse; I think I just died and went to Heaven...
