The Return of the Domestic Goddess

Occasionally, I get a burning desire to play superwoman-
house-cleaning-organizational-goddess. Today was such a day. Laundry, dishes, going through mail, sending out faxes, doing the groceries, cooking a feast—nothing seemed out of my range today. I got lots done, and am feeling very pleased with myself. If I were a cat, I'd be purring right about now.



Today I finally confirmed that an essay of mine will be published in 7,500 (potentially in 40,000) high school textbooks, so I'm also feeling like a bit of a celebrity. I still have a billion pages to update on Luminarium, but even that seems like a doable task. I have to say I prefer these "King of the World!" days to the "I suck" days. So just enjoying this high for now.

Nothing much else is new, except that my baby chocobo, RainFlower, turned adolescent last night. Will see if I can find a picture somewhere on the net. She's adorable - all gangly limbs, and her feathers are sticking out in all directions. The chocobo handler assures me she is in excellent condition, so all is well in fantasyland as well.

What's everyone up to? Folks, you've all been so quiet lately. Drop a line, pls :)

Love, A

Congratulations! That's wonderful!

So, let me get this straight...you have to print out and send your work to other people before they will publish it?

Dammit. I knew I was doing something wrong.

Congratulations! There it is. The Best Seller, The Book of the Month has been published. And only because it has your essay in it!

Heh, Mark! No, actually they sought me out because the essay is published on Luminarium - but I had to fax them a written permission with my "ransom demands".

Thanks, Dad :)

And, SF, My Dear Little Tree in the Forest, I know. You were exempted from the "silent" comment :) I treasure your comments.
