[sticky post] Amazon, Ho!


Look for https://www.createspace.com/3976299 and give this whole procedure 5-7 business days to be fully operational.

I am about to cross a barrier that I've been sniffing about for a long time, and I'm still full of trepidations concerning its fate, or that of its sister volumes of The Touching Lands Dance, but here we go. The Family Forge will soon become a real, live softcover book at about 212 pgs. (glossary included) available from Amazon.com for only $9.85! Carolyn, my editor @ WormholeElectric.com did the PDF file embeddng that stopped things cold in August. It's now undergoing a print review process, so hopefully all the files for the words and the cover will parse properly. If all goes well, I might even have some hard copies on hand at Philcon. The Kindle® e-book will still be available. May Those Beyond nod approvingly at my efforts and assist in its and my financial prosperity. 

Ure'i Apash Nal!

#YalDawo: Paghwen'e (n./v.) rain
It threatened to rain, so later, it did. I wore shorts & a sweatshirt, like Sasuke from NARUTO Shipuden

otherdeb's Friday night dinner was cancelled for Pesach, so we met Sunday instead. Greenpernt (Greenpoint) was a chore to access; the A train ran local downtown to the L & G in Bwoooklyn. Pedestrian navigation on site was by compass instead of judging the shadows of the sun, since it was about to rain. I made it to the Northside Bakery ahead of Deb, fringefan & Sue the Librarian. I wondered if they used real ghouls in their goulash, but this was a Polish neighbourhood, not Hungarian; wood ceilings, incandescent lights and a suit of armor guarding the tables. "Intimate" is another word for "small". I had pork & peirogis, motored  under the Williamsburg Bridge, then had a loo break @KFC in Bed-Stuy. Restrooms were for customers only, so I ordered a box of six tenders, a Dr. Pepper & the key to the loo.

It was an hour on the A train from Nostrand Av. to Home, but I didn't get wet––externally. Instead, I had to race my Proximity-Bladder Idferiss (n., gadget; it's an OAB thing) to the front door, just made it(!)

Mercury Retrograde For the People

It's a sunny spring day, as was yesterday. I went on Sunset Rounds yesterday by the Hudson and around the expensive neighbourhood between Ft. Tryon Park and the George Washington Bridge.  I got home, watchced the season finale (Finale Pt. 2) of Limitless, and thenotherdeb called to set up a weekend hangout with friends and a possible CONTATA meeting online.  This was when I reminded her about the next Mercury Retrograde, which is scheduled to start at 1:30PM  TODAY, and lasts until Sunday, May 22nd at 9:20 AM. As you know, this period is counterindicated for most communications across the majority of public media, and is just the time for important meetings, unless of course they turn magically into hausfilken (n., plural of hausfilk).

Of course, communications about when to arange such hausfilken should take place this morning, otherwise they would fall under the influence of the afoementioned Retrograde. Afterwards, one runs into the schedule onflict of Balticon, which is actually going to be in Baltimore this year. I suppose I'm too late to pre-register now; my inrernet reflexes aren't that good. So I suppose I'll see some of you there. If I go, this would make four major cons his year (so far).  So then what?

Transfer

25 ans, une femme

Raise one Euro flag userpic.

Twenty-five years ago today I woke up in a Brussels hospital bed. Healed! I had a successful corrective surgery that morning ansd spent  week in bed thereafter.

I'd just spent a weeek's holiday in London, Amsterdam and Brussels, I was alll pedestrin-touristy for my 3 days in London, found Number 6's house near Buckingham Palace and  toured the newborn Docklands district by train.. In Amsterdam I got piceked up by a boy who looked like someone I went to high school with, I spent 300 Giulders (pre Euro) on a collection of die-cast model cars ensconsed in crystal cases in the corner of a Ferraari dealership. I took a lot of pictures (analog). My enduring memory of release day was stepping into a black E Class Mercedes driven by a bloke who spoke good English and gave me the tourista's round of Brussels on the way to my hotel. Overall, the scam ride was less expensive than the boat tour of the Amsterdam canals the weekend before.  The biggest challenge of the voyage was finding the proper French term for the ATMa (guichets) that were flourishing  throughout Brussels. This was 1991, mind. The other challenge was conerting Bfr into $ for withdrawals (again, pre-Euro).  Oh, I remember when my Visa card was credit, not debit.

The year over here was a walk in the parc by comparison. I had gone off cashing precisely my last Unemployment check (pre-Disability), and  squeeezed through the rest of the year with the suicide of a roommate (RIP, Stacey Davies) and a change of residence from Clinton Hill in Brooklyn to Inwood in Manhattan. Now, I know better French, the currncies gave settled somewht and I'd still rather ride the Jetfoil across thre Channel, although the Eurostar train would have ben just as comfy. I'd love to continua that last trip with a stay in Paris,. At lieast I'll know where the guichets are.

Star Wars 7 on DVD

HORRORS! I don't have a Star Wars related userpic!

Anyway, Catman brought home STAR WARS: The Force Awakens on DVD for his collection last night and he let me watch it. I enjoyed it immensely, and I realised that NOT seeing it in fulll-screen 3D mode made the movie less confusing overall. I could make out  a lot more details than I could in the full-screen release.   I may need to see it a couple of times more to be able to follow the story more closely.
