Well, it’s Monday again. The Mariners won Saturday and lost Sunday—pretty much the norm for them these days.
Did Alexis mention she got a parakeet for Mother’s Day? The little feather duster keeps Alexis company when she’s working. Seems Jubilee is very choosy about the music she listens to. She had a definite preference for Bon Jovi and Trace Adkins, especially his Red Hot Mama song. Didn’t know parakeets were so particular. <g>
Hunter seems to be taking up a lot of Alexis’s time these days. She’s written the first three chapters of his story. I’d complain about her neglecting the rest of us, but I figure the sooner she gets through with his book, the sooner she’ll start thinking about the next Paladin book after his. I’m being extra nice to her and keeping my fingers crossed. Anyone know if she likes chocolates?
She also got the preliminary cover art for Jarvis’s book, Darkness Unknown. If it tells you anything, she squealed when saw it and then immediately went out and bought a box of chocolates for the Art Department at Pocket. I think I’ve convinced her to post the cover here as soon as she gets a jpeg of it, but that may be awhile yet.
The barrier was quiet over the weekend, but I was on duty anyway. I got caught up on some reading. I just started Jim Butcher’s SMALL FAVORS. God, I love his smart ass sense of humor. If you’ve never read the Dresden Files books, you should give them a try. It’s one of those series you should read in order, by the way. I spend a lot time chuckling and then tensing up when things go bad for Harry.
Well, I’ve got some computer stuff to do—insert evil laugh here, btw. I feel the need to play tag with a worthy opponent . Hope your week is off to a good start.
