Kaja has me working away at art for assorted goodies and extras, and I have the horrifying notion that she wants me to get an extra new thing done every day. This can only mean that I will be getting less time to putter about in the garden. Since it’s raining at the moment, I’m not too upset about this. It’s interesting. I’ve been living here in Seattle since 1990, and we have had more thunder storms this spring, than I’ve seen in the lastr ten years. Now I think this is cool. The two things I miss from living in the Midwest are thunderstorms, and lightning bugs. It’s too wet to get the latter out here, but I’m thinking I’ll go put some lightning rods on the house.
A few of our readers have noticed that we are not, in fact, nominated for a Hugo Award™ this year. To this we say, “Yahoo!” if there was ever a year to NOT be on the ballot, then this is that year. For those readers who are unaware of the mishegas going on with these awards, than count your blessings. I will merely agree with our friend Jeff Vogel (http://www.spiderwebsoftware.com/)
