Look what found at Target! I needed these. Need!!! Why you ask? Because this year on Halloween I put two identical stress ball figures I had that looked like female superheroes at the end of our long hall at work and then started moving them closer to our offices. My coworkers were both entertained and slightly unnerved.

Next year I had planned to make them little blue dresses.

But this... this is so much better! Alas, I must wait a year now for the payoff. But in that amount of time perhaps I can find a tiny Bigwheel...

And now, we wait (maniacal laughter)

Woke up at 3am. So Alice decided that this would be a great time to lay on my head, purr into my brain and gently comb my hair with her claws.

Strangely, this is an effective insomnia aid. I recommend it.

Never have I heard my name said so much as when watching episodes of The IT Crowd. If I’d watched it years ago, I would have used clips of Moss on my answering machine. I could have had him from the episode where he lies and tells the office Jen is dead. (I got a lot of telemarketers.)

Thought you guys would get a kick out of this. I commissioned my friend Alanda Calmus - Wildlife and Portrait Painter to do a painting of my cat, Harry (Potter), as a Cheshire Cat. She'd done a White Rabbit/Doctor Who crossover painting for me in a similar style over the summer. Harry not only tends to smile, but he is always appearing and disappearing out of nowhere. (This is why he accidentally got locked in the closet over the weekend. Sorry, Harry.)

Anyway, I figured you might find the painting as entertaining as I do.

There should be a line of hair colors named for sci-fi/fantasy characters. Like: “Harkonnen Red”, “Targaryen Platinum”, “Loki Black” (with 257 leave in conditioners) or “Picard” (depilatory).

“What say we find a restaurant and catch up?” Rufus asked. His gaze followed hers across the table to his untouched plate and before she could comment, he added, “Yes, I know. But my entree seems to have lived a long, unfulfilled life as boot leather before applying its skills to the restaurant trade. Let us leave it now in peace, shall we?, while it evaluates its next exciting career leap."

--From one of my works in progress.

I’m always a little torn about sharing my book characters that I draw. I feel it helps my writing to draw them, and it’s nice to be able to get an image out of my head and into the common public space. But I also don’t want it to be ruining the reading experience for people if it conflicts with what they have in their own heads.

Heh, as my Red Knight character, Sir Rufus, decides to try out wearing a beard in my second Curious Case of Mary Ann, I thought I’d see if I could sketch him. I had always based him on looking a bit like a twenty-something Benedict Cumberbatch. Amusingly my sketch only ends up looking like a red-headed Doctor Strange. :)

After dismantling my Mad Tea Party decor from my book release party, I left some of it up and gave it a Wonderland Christmas twist. My friend who hates the Jabberwock head isn’t going to be over pleased to see this still hanging. :)
