Ever had one of those mornings when your mind is a blank? That's me right now. I'm nearing the home stretch as it were with the novel. So, my brain is busy working on that. (As it should be.) The migraines have slowed to once every week or two. (Thank the gods.) Even better, I feel less foggy. So, hey, Sea monster Sam has decided it's time to chill. That makes me happy. Other than that, there's not a hell of a lot going on around here--which is good. It means all is well. Sure, there's the Hugo Awards thing, but others have said all the things worth saying about that. In actual news, Tennessee has created some even more fucked up anti-QLTBG legislation, and Oklahoma has become a place where it isn't safe to sleep, let alone drink alcohol. Yeah, sorry, y'all. I'm so, not traveling to Oklahoma any time soon. The assholes are done hiding from the look of things. Why do I have the feeling that screaming "States' rights!" and "Religious Freedom!" is just code for "I don't want to be forced to be a decent human being."? Because, you know, it sure as hell looks that way from here. Hey, at least we know who not to hang out with. (Apologies to the cool people I know who sadly live in Oklahoma and Tennessee--you, I would happily hang with.)
In much less important news...Dane got us a copy of Dixit, the card game, and I can't wait to play. The images are beautiful and inspiring, and the game is a lot of fun. We played it in February at a friend's house. Next to Betrayal at House on the Hill, it's my favorite board game.
 Beyond "No, I don't think authors should withdraw this year as they did last year because that's what the assholes want." and "The more you tighten your grip, the more star systems will slip through your fingers."...I've got zilch to add. Three years in a row, the controversy is not longer a controversy. It's just assholes being assholes. In other words, it's Thursday. :)
