A subtle change of the wind, boding....?

Hmmm. My Wife has got a new job, making essentially the same as I am. She will be working slightly longer hours, but the stress of her new job will be much less than her current one, and much more in tune with her interests. All in all, this will be a huge improvement for both of us. We will be saving more money, and still be able to travel and buy a car and all kinds of benefits.

Which makes me oddly nervous. I can see no negatives here, so my subconscious is making some up and not telling me about it.
Eeee, I hates it.


Otherwise, life trundles along. I ahve been reading comcs lately, esp. Hellboy. I like Hellboy. He's a good guy, and not in the old fasioned comic book/hero way. he's the kind of guy I'd like to hang out and eat pancakes with.

Also, I have been listening to the "2001:A Space Odyssey" audiobook. It's a classic story, and I have seen the movie a couple of times, so I'm not too lost, but's dull. DULLLLLLL. I get the feeling that Sir Clarke was all caught up in the birthing glory of space exploration, and wanted to spread his excitement rather than tell a story. I mean, wow...why, exactly, is it so important what they ate? And why is the action with the asteroid so important?

Maybe I'm just too stoopid.


I still haven't heard from A&A in re: my story. Damnit.
What's a man gotta do to get some responses around here?
I know I should rewrite some of my older stories and get them in circulation, but man. I want some closure on this deal.


I'm getting this. The wife said ok. And now that we're getting rich, it won't hurt at all.

Oh man. I am soo damned excited. Click Here to read the rest.

So I don't know what got into me yesterday. Weird. Maybe I need to get more vitamins.
Anyway, I'm not taking it down--it's not so bad, I reckon, but hey...


I decided to extend my tenure on the FSFHOWW. Maybe it'll help. I sure would like to get something published. I've been waiting for a reply from Abyss and Apex for a while. Come on guys!

Really, I need to stop screwing around and get my latest story polished and posted. It would be nice to get some help on that one. It has potential, I think. It's a Japanese Ghost Story. I would really like to work more Japanese culture and concepts into my writing, but it almost feels dishonest. I live here, but I'm not Japanese...but there's so damn much White Guy fiction out there already! Won't I just be propagating the White Male Hegemony by contributing to the surfeit of privilege with which we Caucasian Men are showered? Click Here to read the rest.
