Morning, Blank Slate, No Time

Well, a little time, but only 'cos I am waiting my turn at the shower.

I'm covered up with year-enders at work, so much so I have not even shopped for Something Suitable to wear for New Year's (goin' to the speakeasy steakhouse, yayy!). I only have to dress like a grown-up one or two times a year, which I consider an advantage of my job. It usually is -- not so much when you want to go someplace where jeans, a hoodie over a knit top and workboots are not considered appropriate. (On the other hand, ooooooo, the food at Morton's! The company's pretty nice, too).

I've been working on a holiday "Starship" yarn, this one set during the short period of open warfare between USSF/NATO allies and the Edgers; I have a neat photo-essay for "Retrotechnologist" planned...but there's a list of awkward, difficult and/or boring tasks to get done at the Skunk Works before the holiday break, none of them so routine that I can do them and noodle plot points or pity comments at the same time.

The good news is, I'll have a week off and hope to make some actual progress. But today, not so much.

Remind me to tell you my Morton's story at the blogmeet. My family refers to it as "The Night of the Lobster."

I wonder if your Morton's story is anything like mine, Joanna. It also involved a lobster.

Glad you are having fun. Hopefully I'll be back in time for something this weekend with us all.
