Writing exercise in the dreaming: sitting around a table with two other women, we have magazines and have been instructed to find representative images of one of our characters and then of a prop which symbolizes some aspect of that character, and arrange them in some way that speaks to the character's overall arc...behind this somewhat pedestrian activity, by brain was busy coming up with a character and giving her some chops in a slightly bathetic overwrought bit of interaction with another character. I like it when my brain does this.

I am home today; skeleton holiday at work and mine is not the skeleton in the office. These bones are dem happy to be home. Oh yeah. Writing is happening. And I can do anything I want, all day, the day is mine! Mine, I tell you! *maniacal laughter* ... *coughing fit*

This Pablo Defendini post on Tor.com, Skynet, The Early Years, gives good video.

From [personal profile] amysisson:

The puppy has not yet been adopted. The shelter called to say she is becoming slightly ill, and might we come back to get her? I suspect this is merely kennel cough which by itself is No Big Deal, but since they are very unlikely to adopt out a sick puppy, it becomes potentially life-threatening since they do euthanize if they run out of space.

Paul is in Arizona (he gets home tonight), but last night on the phone he said he would call the shelter and our vet this morning, and see if we can pick up the puppy tomorrow (Thursday), take her directly to our vet for a check-up, and pay to board her there temporarily. This isn't great timing money-wise, as one of our cats has a $700-800 appointment for minor (!) procedures next week, but in the end it
is just money.

Hopefully the vet will say yes, but even so, we do still need to find a home for the puppy as quickly as possible. This is NOT limited to the Houston area. We will drive this puppy wherever we have to to find her a home. So if you know anyone
anywhere in Texas, or Louisiana, or Oklahoma, or wherever, who would be willing to take this puppy, we will get her there at our expense. Please ask everyone you think might even remotely be interested. As a reminder, this is a Black Lab or Black Lab mix, female, estimated 3-4 months old.

Please feel free to re-post or e-mail any or all of this post. Thanks!
