(That's "Hello" from Hanky the Christmas Poo. You know, from Southpark.)
Things are going along just swimmingly here. Yesterday, we found out what Loki is. (And no, I won't be referring to Loks as a boy or girl on the blog here, as we want to surprise the parents and I think sometimes they stop by, and BOY and GIRL are understandable even to German speakers.) So if you want to know, Tweet me or shoot me a mail and we'll do it that way.
PG is currently being read, and I've got a whole other week before I have to give it on my self-imposed deadline, so I'm feeling pretty good. I haven't started the FS revisions, mainly because PDS (the new MS) is so strident and I'm taking a big relaxing break right now, and reading other's work. It's nice!
And I'm also...
That's right! My husband poo poos it as a "old woman activity" but I keep telling him knitting is hot, hot, hot. And if I can learn enough to make my favourite kind of sweaters, and baby stuff, and winter scarves (which cost THE EARTH here if you want a nice one!) it pays for itself! Plus it's so nice and calming and chilly. Me likey big time.
It goes well with my other activities. I like to do stuff with my hands, and often I need to think out a plot point. So this is the optimal way of avoiding an sort of plot traffic-jam in my head.
