cat haiku list

I haz an update - finally

So - back to LJ after a hiatus in which I sent out query letters for my novel and started a short story I'm going to try to get published, too. Excitement abounds!

And I cut my hair. It used to be shoulder length and wavy; now it's short and spikey and has purple in it. I feel like Joan Jett. I will post pictures as soon as I can, if anyone is interested.

One unhappy thing happened (well, not one in the whole world, just one to me) - I burnt my left hand pretty badly while trying to drain noodles for mac & cheese. Two fingers are still pretty ugly - one has a big red welt with a bit of normal skin in the shape of my ring, and the other one grew an immense blister that has since ... gotten smaller (in case someone has a weak tummy) ... and now looks like a really nasty bruise. I actually had to take a vicodin to sleep that night, and my girlfriend accused me (jokingly) of wanting to be like Greg House. I told her to leave the bottle on the nightstand so I could wake her up in the middle of the night to make her enable me with another pill.

If folks are interested, I'll post pics. Under a cut, of course.

I also have this beautiful review of Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree", which I have to put under a cut since I don't think people should have to explain what they're laughing at to their bosses unless they want to.

I didn't link to it because the review site where it's posted often takes it down, even though the guy keeps reposting it.

Thanks to dancingbelly for sending it to me. It made me happy.
