mr sandman, bring me a dream

Here at Casa del Milla we've been prepping for Worldcon by catching up on our reading. A few months ago, the inestimable Neil Freaking Gaiman gave us the complete Absolute Sandman (complete with doodles) as a wedding present. We've been reading them out loud every night, much to the amazement and delight of Mistress Roswell who likes to help turn the pages. (Candelabra added for goth points.) I've seen the layout for Where I Write in the program guide and it looks tres cool. The Worldcon staff has been very awesome in getting things set up, it's going to be a wonderful week.

On the advice of some of you, I got a tub of Dentemp dental glue and tried twice to glue my tooth back on, each time it worked with all the efficacy of a wad of wet toilet paper. I'll try again today.

In other news, to beat the heat we've been spending a lot of time in the pool. Glamor shots in trillian_stars' LJ.

On to other stuffsorz:

Lately some good things have happened to good people and I want to point them out.

Cool interview with E. E. Knight, includes an awesome photo of mine from Where I Write

Lucy Coombs makes a wonderful painting based (loosely) one of my photos

About the same time I adopted momcat, lizerk adopted Ginny and now, after three years, Lizerk pets Ginny for the first time -- feral story with a happy ending!

Michael Swanwick is interviewed at Dragon Crush Sweet barking cheese! There's a dating site for nerds? WAY COOL!

My favorite goth model on planet earth Wednesday Freaking Mourning is in the last two issues of Gothic Beauty.

I keep thinking eddirt is going to draw Trill and I in one of his cartoons so I'm always waiting to plug his site, but let me say -- If you like The Far Side but think it would be funnier if more of the jokes were about bad parents and accidental shotgun deaths then check out Edible Dirt, updated twice a week

If you just arrived from mars and don't yet know that fantasy novelist catvalente (a.k.a. Catherynne Valente) is writing a novel on line check out onaleopard the community for people who are reading along.

That is all.
