So this getting weird, yeah? I bought some CDs on the weekend when I drove past JB Hifi to pick up my Dali prints. I remember carrying the bag back to my car. Then I drove home, unpacked the car with all the framed prints etc, crazy Benji jumping all around and then editormum came past and picked me up for the Swancon meeting.

Can. Not. Find. The damn CDs now. You think they are with the books from Planet? My house is not that messy! I mean, yeah there are piles of stuff that I haven't put away yet but they are distinct and visible and easy to go through. If I had a spare frigging half a day, I'd just tidy up my house. I think next weekend is Yom Kippur. So my next free half a day is Oct 18. Though technically I am on holidays after that. Wonder if I could just not schedule anything in November, for fun. And then see what it was like to get bored.

Tonight kathrynlinge and I are off to the Art Gallery to hear Katie Noonan. Looking forward to that! Might even see if a gin and tonic is allergen free. Tomorrow night is Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) - fam are flying in for dinner etc. Saturday is the Hens extravaganza (bride looks damn tired today) and Sunday is the WASFF meeting.

I managed to get some more of my square done for the quilting bee. I wanted to get more of it done but I am pulling some weight over at ASif! at the moment and whilst I can sew and read/edit reviews, the publishing of 'em is a bit fiddly. I can't believe electricant doesn't complain about this more!!!

I think I am mostly moved to not go the database route and to look into Drupal for the upgrade for ASif! I have this vague hope that it would be reasonably straight forward and even I could set it up. I'm sure that won't be the case but until I look into that, I can pretend.

I paid for the printing for Roadkill/Siren Beat today. And I've signed off on the proofs. So ... yeah ... that's the last TPP book for the year which feels weird. A relief, but weird. I have dealt with the hole in my time (and the lack of slush now we closed Shiny) by picking up pace at Last Short Story. I can't seem to read shorts and edit them at the same time. (benpeek I owe you that thing and will try and get it to you by the end of the weekend. I can see you frowning from here!) And I'm gearing up to start working on 2010's schedule. There's quite a lot of the fiction already sitting there waiting. So I don't think I will be out of things to do. Though I do worry about such a thing!
