(no subject)

Thanks to everybody who passed on links to my post last Friday on Publishing Links for Beginning Writers.

Random weekend stuff: This is sweet corn season here, which means I have to get to the farmers' market between 8:00 am and 9:00 am and not between 9:00 am and 10:00 am if I want to get any.

We saw Toy Story 3 and it was every bit as good as everybody says. And as I said on Facebook, the good thing about the 3D glasses is that you can cry without anybody noticing.

I found some old catnip in a drawer, and sprinkled it around the cats' scratching post, and it was interesting that they all had different reactions to it. Harry sniffed it then ignored it, but with his kidney disease he's not taking an interest in much of anything. Tasha sniffed it, rolled around in it, and clearly enjoyed it, then left to go do other things. Bella rolled in it, became violently agitated, then flopped over in it and clearly had some sort of hallucinations, then refused to leave its vicinity for the rest of the day. I think I remember now why I left it in the drawer.

Conventions: I'm not going because we had to cut way, way back on convention travel this year, but you guys should still go to ApolloCon this coming weekend (June 25-27) in Houston, TX.

I will be going to ArmadilloCon 32 in Austin, TX, August 27-29. That will be my last con for a while, probably.
