Busy busy Monday

So much to do today. Laundry, a run to Walmart for ham, Kleenex and cash, post office, library...and there's probably something else I'm not remembering right now. Still, that's a full day right there, and it makes me glad I have the day off. At least I have the daily blogging and the garbage taken care of. Mark's right; taking out the garbage makes you feel better.

The Amazon order came in while I was gone, so now I have a pair of Koss UR-20 cans on my head. They do a much better job of blocking out the background noise than the Yapsters, though they don't have a microphone...not like I need one of those at the moment anyway. I'm giving serious thought to punting Eve Online until I'm settled in Vegas, and I can't think of anything else I'd want a microphone for. Speaking of Amazon, last week's book post put me over $71 for the month. Booya.

Discovered while unpacking that I'd somehow forgotten my bandage scissors in Luray. Well, I was going to Walmart anyway.

Going to work a bit on What Did You Do In The Cold War, Dad? and then nap for a few hours.

And that was Monday

Well, I got most of what I wanted to do done; may have overdone it with the chikuns, or possibly I was hungrier than I thought by the time I got to Boston Market. About the only thing not done was laundry, and since I have a clean shirt, pants, and undies for tomorrow I don't really care. It'll wait until Wednesday.

Picked up The Last Centurion at the library after dropping off my finished books since the other volumes in the Drake/Flint Belisarius series weren't in. Also picked up The Many Deaths of Joe Buckley and Sam Schall's Vengeance from Ashes as my Amazon prime freebie.

Added and formatted essays to What Did You Do In The Cold War, Dad?; all I need to do is finish up "Highest Octane Nightmare Fuel" (hopefully about eight thousand words there) and tuck that in before I send it off to Andrea for beta reading; after that, to Joy for formatting and submission once I have Jen's cover art. Backup plan will be to have Joy's graphic artist friend do a shoulder patch collage and slap a title on it.
