1. Note to self: when going on OKCupid feels more like a chore and something you can put off for over a week, that's a sign you're not doing so well there right now. Looks like I am going to get contact no matter what. I don't need to reply to everyone who passes the spelling test.

2. Cruddy weather day. Temperature outside is up, as is the rain level and humidity. While it's nice not to be chilly at work (was yesterday) I also don't appreciate the imminent resumption of the melting feeling.

3. Fighting to keep from getting sick it seems. S is out, though she popped in twice yesterday. And she did *not* look well. Poor lady.

4. I've decided to reread some of the later stories in the Black Jewels 'verse. At first it was just going to be Dreams Made Flesh and Twilight's Dawn (story collections) but now I am thinking I should add Tangled Webs (where we get some great Tersa moments) and Shadow Queen and Shalador's Lady (the latter of which has an extra special place in my heart for reasons of ego). [community profile] writerverse has a challenge to do a survey as a character and I want to fill it out as Jaenelle. Plus I have not re-read any of those.
Did read the first story in DMF last night, which deals with some of the creation of the Blood. And also read parts of The High Lord's Daughter in Twilight's Dawn and every portion made me cry. Reasons.

4a. My current book is Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor. She may be my personal author discovery of the year. Incredible storyteller. I read Who Fears Death during my NYC and understood quickly why it won the World Fantasy Award. Most recommended.

I swear we do not get taught this specific skill in library school but this is often what happens when a place redesigns their library web site.

On Sunday I went to the beach with [personal profile] siduri, where I taunted seagulls by tossing rocks into the water and got my base needed dose of salt water. Despite the fact that clouds covered the sky for the entire time we were there, I got color anyway. Aside from my short time in the water, we just spent the whole time catching up with everything. I so needed that.

Having a bit of a dip in energy again this week and I think it's me pushing a little too hard and not getting enough sleep. TV needs to go off when I head to bed but I don't like doing that.

Also, I have started reading Harry Potter. One of my big reasons for avoidance is that I have found a lot of hyped stories to be poorly written, plus I hit saturation fast when they first came out. It's what happens when you work in a bookstore. But damn, this is one time when there is serious merit from the state. Right now Hagrid's on the boat with the family explaining everything.
