Since that big snowstorm missed us by a hundred miles or so, it is for truly spring. The weather the last few days has been just gorgeous. I banged up my left shin pretty fierce hopping over a fence to go see what kind of flowers were turning some of the nearby fields purple. (Answer: I don't know, but not clover, which is mostly what I was wondering. Something tall and branching with little tiny flowers.)

There was birthday G&C on Friday for me. (My actual birthday is tomorrow.) Kate made some great tiramisu. I was muchly impressed with it, especially because the last time I had tiramisu, it was so boozy I feared it would either endrunken me or spontaneously combust. I got a big pile of books that made me think "why have I not bothered with having an Amazon wishlist before now?", plus several unlisted books from zalena, the Gloom expansions, and Munchkin Cthulhu. The Tough Guide to Fantasyland is hysterical, and a fine thing to read if you're ever thinking about writing fantasy. It was a hanging out and talking kind of evening, sort of low-key.

I'm starting to notice that my productivity will not infrequently start to peak around 5 pm on Friday, which is sort of inconvenient. If anyone would care to wave their magic wand of insight and tell me what all the factors are that need to align for me to get things done, I'm all ears.

Oh, and speaking of work, Greg got a promotion. Go him!

I don't know what the purple flowers are called. I've always called them Stinkweed because they have such a pungent smell. When we moved down from the mountains, I'd never seen them before. I thought they were so pretty I picked bundles and brought them into the house. Everyone in the family, with the exception of me, ended up being horribly allergic to them.

You can have my productivity if you want it; I'm sure not doing anything with it.

Happy birthday. We're sorry we weren't able to make it to G&C. We would have much preferred to be there.

Also, YAY for Greg!

Happy Birthday to you !!! Sounds like you had a good time. Also sounds like you will disappear into your reading room for a long time until you get all those books read. Just do not hide to much, we'd still like to see you. And give Greg a big slap on the back for me, well okay just make it a pat pat pat as I do not want you to hurt him. Let him know we are happy for him.
