In case you're interested...

since I've been rather quiet,  I'm alive and well and reading alot and writing, and suddenly becoming a domestic goddess.  Don't ask me why, but this morning I was cleaning the bathtub and both toilets before my morning coffee...definitely weird.  LOL.

Things I've read lately:

Gates of Fire, novel about the Spartans shortly before and during Thermopylae.  Very good read, the type that sticks in your head.

I'm the Vampire, That's Why.  A rather light, funny vampire story.

Roma Eterna, by Robert Silverberg.  Excellent alternate history.

My Life as a White Trash Zombie.  Also rather light reading.  Not bad, though.  A good way to pass some time.

Currently, I'm in the middle of Timothy Zahn's Odd Girl Out.  As usual, Zahn always does a decent job.

I've got The Difference Machine by Gibson & Sterling on the queue to read, as well as The Snow Queen's Shadow and Robin McKinley's Spindle's end.

How am I managing to get things read?  I've actually been turning off the internet.  Amazing how much time that buys you...I've also moved my writing to a non-internet computer.  Seems that slow but steady progress is taking place! And managed to clean house! And do laundry! And cook from scratch!  My world is strange...Who is this person in my body and what did you do with the everyday me?

And I'm having to cull through my clothes and get rid of things that are too big for me.  That's always pleasant.

Lest you think I've given up on the steady diet of non-fic reading, never fear.  I've got fresh volumes heading my way even as I type...LOL.
