The line edit/copy edit on The Cloud Roads is finished and turned in, and now I'm back working on the YA fantasy I'm co-writing with Aaron de Orive, until the proofs for The Cloud Roads arrive.

Last night I watched Death at the Funeral, which I think I liked better than the British version of the same name, and followed it up with Toy Story 2. I may watch the DVD of Toy Story 3 today, which I saw in the theater and loved. Barbie FTW!
