Cabal's left hind leg is shaved, and has a stitched-up incision. It's so cold outside that he's whimpering when I take him outside to pee; it's so cold outside that it hurts to breathe. And I'm way behind on deadlines. So I'm going to put him in the car and drive south, until I get somewhere it's warm enough for a sick dog and a grumpy author.
I think it's a good bet that I'll be off blogger, twitter, and probably even email for at least a few days.
In the meantime, a fully-browsable version of Coraline, for those of you who want to read the book before the movie comes out....
...and the School Library Journal has done an article on all the various versions of Coraline currently out there.
