ONE I'm listening to The Cat's Table by Michael O[look up the rest of his name later, but there's a "j" and several "aa's" in there] It's a lovely book so far, even though it hasn't gripped me the way books sometimes do. That means that when I accidentally bonk the player and it skips backward, I don't fast-forward. I'll just listen to the section again. I'm not in a hurry to get to the end.
TWO I'm starting a list of words and phrases that I would eliminate if I were given the Word Wand:
Check your privilege, Mom (I'm not sure what it means but I hear it too often)
Fur-baby and furever home
Cis-privilege Cis-anything come to that.
THREE It hasn't been 2 weeks yet, but the whole Newtown thing is fading from the conversation. I have no idea what the solution should be -- fewer guns out in the world seems obvious, although how that happens, less obvious. I only hope the public's will to figure out real solutions lasts through the new year. I mean, gad, the world will come back from the winter break weeks and weeks after the fact.
FOUR I'm not liking this story I'm writing. Bah.
