So I overdosed on late afternoon diet coke and tea. Now, despite the fact I haven’t had more than 5 hours sleep a night for more than a week (and slept for two hours mid-morning today because I was buggered), and I was curled up in bed at 9pm, I’m still wide awake. I’ve finished my Mercy Thompson (by the very cool Patricia Briggs) novel, read a New X-Men compilations (for
, it was parts 1-6 of Choosing Sides – I think) and Serenity: those who are left behind. Still not sleepy. I have some more Amazon-y goodness – heh, in more ways than one! – in a couple of anthologies that came on Thursday – one with Patricia Briggs and one of Robin McKinley’s (the other Amazon-y thing is Wonder Woman: Amazonia – snicked from the public library today, along with the other comicy stuff). My Fables fixes have not yet arrived unfortunately 😦
I will probably end up doing my final edit for ASIM 36.
doesn’t know he’s waiting for it… I’ve also got some layout to do I guess, now my proofers have done their usual spectacularness. Just waiting on the lovely artists to pull this thing together. Then I MUST focus on New Ceres and Shiny. And start thinking ahead to ASIM 38, which is really not all that far away! Oh, and mark those 180 or so year 9 book reviews. Amazingly, there are a couple that are quite good. A couple *sigh*
I don’t think I’ve been very update-y lately. It’s nearly holidays again and that means I get to spend even more time in front of the computer beast, so I’ll be more talkative. I guess in reality, nothing much new has been happening. I’m busy, but that’s normal. We’re all well and healthy and happy. Ooh, I went on a date with my husband last weekend – dinner and a movie, first time in goodness knows how long we’ve been out together on our own! Was most pleasant.
Work is going great. I dropped to 0.8FTE (four days a week) a couple of weeks ago and am enjoying the extra time with kids/hubby (when he’s home). The week seems to fly at work too, I love my job. It was hard to drop that day, but it’s working well so far. Might be different story in Term 4 though, as we’re pretty busy then. Might try for 9 days a fortnight instead, if hubby is able to do kid duty.
Am going to miss Supanova this weekend, buggerit. I really didn’t want to go without others – too hard and too much effort with the kids. Tried to coerce some of my school colleague geeks, but they weren’t up for it. Heard of a bunch of students who were going tho’! Guess I’ll just have to hear about it vicariously. I’m sure
will post about it! She’d better!
Hmmm. The year is flying by. Hard to believe we’ve been here eight months already! I’ve booked our tickets to QLD for Chrissy, AND I’m going to sneak the Aurealis Awards on the end of the holiday! Yay! I’m sure that will come around a darn sight quicker than I expect it to. These holidays have certainly snuck up on me. One more week – my goodness. Fingers crossed I get to actually SEE some people this time.
, you’re all on my hit list!
Well, I’ve killed a bit more time better spent sleeping. Bugger the work, I’ve got a couple of games of Scramble and Pathwords or Wordtwist going on Facebook. Best go bother them for a bit.
Oh, and a pic of my boy for Crazy Hair Day (raising money for SIDS) today! Cute, no? 🙂
