I have a reason for my blog silence: I had all four wisdom teeth out on Wednesday and have been in recovery mode ever since. Two of them were impacted and horizontal, and those are the holes in my mouth that are taking the longest time to heal. I'm up to eating soft foods. My diet this weekend consists mostly of scrambled eggs, refried beans, oatmeal, yogurt and fruit smoothies. Oh, and I cannot believe the number of medications I'm taking. I have greater respect now for people who take a medley of pills at various times all day, every day. I have to do it for only a week, and I can hardly keep it all straight.
True Blood starts up tonight, and for the first time ever I get to watch the episodes as they air because we now have HBO. For all the previous seasons, I've had to wait for the DVD release, which usually comes about a year after the season airs. I haven't watched last season yet except for the finale, so I'll be watching both seasons at the same time. Should be interesting.
Writing progress: I finished a flash piece last night about a priest, an AI who thinks she's Annie Oakley, a dirigible and some mechanical bees. It was damn fun to write. My third-quarter entry for Writers of the Future is basically done, and I'm hoping to submit the story this week.
