Waving...

I have almost -- almost, so close I can taste it -- finished the "Danse Macabre" story, which means I'm over half way through the Graveyard Book. Now the plot starts...

Sure many have asked this, but which book are you reading in the photo with you by the tree?~Andrea the Satanic Ice Cube Diva

I am sitting under a tree reading a most wonderful bunch of essays by Sue Hubbell called Shrinking the Cat. (Here's a review I found. The book is better than the review.)

...

Many, many people wrote to tell me about this new thing called Firefox and why I should use it instead of Explorer. Truth to tell, I've been using Firefox since it was Firebird, and happily plugging it. But sometimes I use Explorer. It's ever so slightly easier to blog with Explorer -- there are few bells and whistles that Firefox doesn't get from Blogger; if you have more than one Gmail account open at the same time, you're going to need two different web browsers anyway; and (this one tends to be the biggest one that stopped me becoming exclusively Firefox based, at least on the laptops) sometimes Firefox is a memory hog. I'll notice that a computer has slowed way down, go and check the CPU and find out that Firefox is using it all. I used to simply kill Firefox with a Ctrl-Alt-Delete and then reopen it later with sessions saver, but I started worrying that I was doing something wrong, so I did a search over at Firefox help, and discovered that if it's being a memory hog they suggest you kill it with a ctrl-alt-delete...

I still use both, unashamed...

I was excited when I read

to learn that Wolves in the Walls is going to Los Angeles as well as New York, and disappointed to learn that it's not -- as The Stage says, right now Wolves is only going to the New Victory -- details of the New York run are at http://www.newvictory.org/show.m?showID=1028522.

I meant to post some of the Day I Spent Being Interviewed about Stardust links, but Lucy Anne has them all up at http://del.icio.us/thedreaming -- still, there's a long one at Ain't it Cool that's fun http://www.aintitcool.com/node/33002

And you can hear me being interviewed at Hay on Wye here...
