Where there's a will, there's a way... or maybe that should be "where there's a nerd, there's serious overkill."

Stuff today:

1) Greywalker Film/TV option was renewed for another 6 months (squee).

2) The sound of dog teeth clacking near my knees while 130 collective pounds of dogs wrestle under my desk is a bit disconcerting.

3) Why does the smoke detector's low battery alarm always seem to go off at 3 AM? (I need LOT more coffee)

4) When is the mechanic going to be done fixing my truck?

Whoohoo! Brainstorming with Gary Henderson, Heather Welliver, and Dave Robison on the Round Table Podcast Workshop segment:
Kat Richardson - author of the Greywalker Series as well as fabulous novellas and shorter tales - returns to the Big Chair at the RTP to lend her fabulous brainstorming-fu to an urban fantasy tale of magic unleashed on the world and the newly trained federal agents tasked with cleaning up the mess.

The continuing saga of My Damned Ford Explorer (MDFE--yes I know people joke about them being "Exploders" but this one has been trouping along for 100,000 miles with only standard complaints. until recently, when it became Super Lemon):

Had MDFE (also known as "the truck" and "Yaqui") in to replace the transmission about a month ago when it ate itself without warning at 200,000 miles. Still acts a little "funny" under certain circumstances in spite of taking it in two more times. Then had to have the oil cooler gasket replaced--massive oil leak--and the rear differential seals completely replaced last week. That took three days. Got the truck back in time to drive to Portland OR area with my mom for a funeral and some family stuff on Thursday (left home at 05:00 Thursday, got back 15:30 Saturday. Ran errands with hubby on Sunday and "Check Engine" light came on about 16:00 and stayed on.

Called mechanic this morning. He said to bring it by for diagnostic. I needed to run a few more errands first (in case MDFE needed to stay behind for a few days), so I did that: hardware, grocery, post office. Check Engine Light remained on. Until I headed home from the post office to drop off the groceries and stuff. Light happily went out as I headed home with the stuff. With light off, I took the truck to the mechanic... who said, bring it back when the light comes back on.

Much as I hate to ascribe motive or sentience to a truck, I swear this thing is deliberately fucking with me.

200000+ miles is not to bad. Right about the time when things start falling apart :)

New project started today based on an old project I can remember but not find the scraps and notes for. So far it's weird in ways that make me happy and I did 1531 words. I shall give you the following 69 of them:

They probably think he’s dead—he hopes they think he’s dead. /He/ thought he was dead. But he’d thought that since he saw the two thugs on his tail. What’s Threcki got to be so pissed about, anyhow? It’s not like Ince killed anybody—or even stole anything. He just… borrowed the signal scrambler for a little while. He put it back! God’s death… There’s no pleasing some people.

I may need to visit Greece....
Greece has its share of creepy places, including entire villages that are victim to mother nature’s fury and others burned to the ground by the Nazis durin

Levity may be required. Thus I give you, not the first female nominee for President, but certainly the most amusing: Gracie Allen.

I'm confused: what is it that you think I'm saying with this post that requires your explanation of what I "need to understand"?

Story

Bestselling author of the Greywalker novels.
Introduction
I write the Greywalker paranormal detective novels. I grew up as a theater brat and bookworm. Long ago I worked at the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Fair as an actor and dancer. For pay, I used to work as an editor and I've worked on course development for the Gemological Institute of America, technical documents and sales materials, and magazines for both trade and consumer groups.  I've lived on sail and motor boats and I'm married.  Until a few years ago we had a cat and a pile of ferrets who have since passed on. Currently we are under the furry thumbs of two yeti-hunting hounds: Belladogga Sniffington (pibble) and Jack Pupikins (Lab/bête noir), but I'm still an advocate of California Ferret Legalization.
