I am quite proud, yes. Also feeling slightly jealous.

Sis entered a Short Story-competition the other week, and sent us, the adoring family, her entry. It is quite nice. I got one or two minor quibbles with formatting, and she forgot a word, but that's all.

I never knew she was writing. And here I am, talking and thinking about writing, and she goes out and does so and enters.

Wot I got for my birthday:


  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith.

  • Wintersmith, by Terry Pratchett.

  • Jade hanger of a Maori fishhook.

  • Jade earrings. These last two presents from New-Zealand. Yay!



And I bought H.M.S. Surprise, by Patrick O'Brian, as my own gift to myself.

Sunday was my birthday. We went over to Joy's, and had a good time. Teased GC, gourmetted, and played Monopoly. Well, they did, I was bank, but neglected that to read my new book.

  • Ziezo, all 347 children's poems, by Annie M.G. Schmidt.

  • Stardust, by Neil Gaiman.

  • A hat full of sky, by Terry Pratchett.

  • Science of Discworld 3: Darwin's watch, by Jack Cohen, Terry Pratchett and Ian Stewart.

  • A Samsung mobile phone.


  • A good haul, and I had a good time Sunday.

    Which I got sent by Joy. Introducing the Book. It's in Norwegian, with English sup-titles.

    Quite funny.

    Got Going Postal and The Wee Free Men for my birthday. Wheeeeeee! Now my series is almost complete, bwahahaha! Stupid Thud! not being out in paperback yet.

    Keeping Going Postal on standby for Wednesday. Yay, airports! (Well, not really.) But why does the telly seem intent on showing all these airplane-disastermovies?

    Also got Heroes of Horror. How to run a horror-game. It's nifty. And now I'm missing my Ravenloft-books, and my nWoD. Bah. We won't be moving my stuff from up north to here until July, that being when Sis and Boyfriend have the time to help out. They can drive, we can't.
