I'm back, at least physically

My god am I glad the last two months are over. Major projects behind or plunging into crisis mode at work (again, or still, depending on your point of view), a visit to my mom (which was lovely but included much discussion of legal/estate stuff, which always depresses me), a conference whereat not only was I on the Board of Directors but I had to teach a brand new workshop I'd never taught before, my godson graduating high school (there is NO WAY he is that old, it's impossible), taking on co-mod responsibilities for my online writing group, an overflow of editing work for my freelance clients, Marvin the laptop died and I had to migrate my entire life onto Marvin II...arrgghh. I'm sure there were other things but I must have blocked them out in a vain attempt at mental self-defense. They'll probably surface later and cause me to leap up screaming at some awkward moment. In the middle of dinner, say, or while at the theatre.

Somewhere along the line, though, I did manage to watch the last season of Mad Men -- what a wild ride that was! -- and last night I finally got caught up on Wolf Hall. I want to have Mark Rylance's babies.

Now all I have left to do is finish my sshg_promptfest fic which is due in nine days, get ready for my trip west for nursedarry's dad's 100th birthday (!!), and write a paper for a conference in August. It'll be like shooting fish in a barrel.

And of course I have to catch up on what's new with all of YOU, my flist. So, what's the single most interesting thing that's happened to each of you in the past two months, since I abandoned you all in the middle of March? Tell, tell!

I'm so glad you're back! I was just asking a couple of days ago if anyone had heard from you. Glad to see that you've been living the life of leisure in your absence! ;)

Let's see...we're doing major diy redecorating in the house, and I've sent out about 20 query letters to agents and heard back rejections from two and nothing else. I'm enjoying DIY much more than sending out query letters, I can tell you that! LOL

DIY is good -- look forward to seeing some photos of your handiwork. Be sure to frame those rejections -- when you are a NY Times best-selling author you can re-read them and laugh hysterically.

Also, happy anniversary!!

Welcome back, and congratulations on surviving the past few months!

The most interesting thing I've done in the past couple of months? Hmm. Well, I was in this Nerd Choir video (only a couple of shots in the cathedral, as I had to work on the day the swordy bits were shot).

Nerd choir rules! Mr Psmith and I just finished watching Pitch Perfect and it was AWESOME.

Welcome back. Sadly nothing interesting is going on in my life. :)

I don't know about that -- I saw your pavlova and your Tortilla a la Espanola and those look exciting to me :)

Thank you for the kind comment. I've not had a lot of enthusiasm for new cooking/baking projects. I'm too tired when I get home to do much more than microwave and on the weekend, I mostly sleep. :)

Though I AM thinking of making some hollandaise to go on baked steelhead trout fillet for Sunday.

Welcome back as it's been some time between my last blog too. Am going to post a new one once I know what my NHL Stanley Cup finals is to predict for. Working on my post con report too though next few weeks are busy so it's a work in progress. I know of Mad Men but we don't get it up here. Take care!
