Cloudy and mild
Two shows yesterday, and I’m hurting. I’ll need several yoga sessions to try to untwist the kinks.
Shows were fine. The goat ripped the knee out of his pants and the Tin Man’s arm came off in the second show, so off we go to repair today. But nothing major.
Did some work on Assumption of Right and did some plotting on both “Anomalous” and Token and Affections. In order to make the extraordinary fit into the logic of the story’s world in both, I have to make sure that the practicalities make sense as a foundation.
A. and I went to dinner at our favorite French restaurant – chicken, mashed potatoes, asparagus, and a chocolate hazelnut crepe for me, mushroom ravioli and a strawberry crepe for him. Yum.
Finished To the Nines and Ten Big Ones. It’s interesting – the series went off track a bit, and now seems to be getting back – for a few books there, the growth of the lead character was sacrificed for a type of comedy which, when you’re reading the whole series back to back, began to grate on me. Probably with only one book coming out a year, when one reads them as they come out, one forgets the details and it’s no big deal. I also found continuity errors – since part of my work is continuity, inconsistencies tend to glare out at me.
The twins are up to something – ever since a Russian Blue won Best in Show at the Garden this week, they’ve both been impossible. And Elsa is racing around the apartment like a small ox, crashing into everything in her path.
Quick peek around my Daily Blog Reads, and then I want to get some words on paper, even though I feel a bit fuzzy-headed this morning (and everything hurts). Raked stages take too much of a toll on the body.
