It's too hot for him to even get in his pool. We did take him to a park yesterday where he got to swim and play in the mud which he loved. Still not eating regularly though.

Free Broadway tickets!!! Although, I didn't remember much of A Streetcar Named Desire. I'm now wondering if I ever really read it.
Currently reading Cocaine Blues.

Finding some DVDs that I thought I lost.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"

Temps have dropped significantly, and the rain effecting this change has been copious enough to make a little difference in the crunchy brown world outside. Better still, it was not a violent storm, for a change.

Little things going well. Got my first blog interview lined up, got files back early from the formatter I hired, eBook releasing on the 24th. Also found someone who is reviewing the first 7500 words of books and agreed to review the new one, giving me the option of having her hold the review to coincide with the release. Little things help. :)

Last Thursday of course was awful - this past Thursday brought even more drama and awful, and I'm so sick of and embarrassed by drama I can't even deal. And so, today ...

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Animals are the best therapy, and they teach us more about life, both coming and going, than a hundred university courses ever could.
So glad you have two new instructors to add to your lifetime resume!
