Saturday morning

Wow, I slept in later than usual this morning, finally getting up at 9:30. I had a headache before going to bed last night so I took a couple of Tylenol PM’s and I think that might be the culprit. Nevertheless, I slept well, even though it was very hot and humid last night (not only did I have the central air on, but I had the small window unit in my bedroom running all night).

Got the latest issue of mental_floss in the mail yesterday. It’s a special “Presidential” issue and has articles packed with all kinds of little-known trivia about presidents.

I’m nearly two-thirds of the way through Creating Short Fiction, which is very good, and I expect to finish with it sometime today.

And speaking of books, last night I ordered a copy of shunn‘s brand new chapbook, An Alternate History of the 21st Century and I’m looking forward to reading it when I get it.

But first things first: breakfast.
