Tues. Jan. 3: Imp in the House!

Waxing Moon
Sunny and cold

The cold front’s come in, and it’s living up to its name. Brrr!

Got a lot of work done yesterday morning, thank goodness. Left around 1 to drive to Providence to pick up Costume Imp. Lovely day for driving, not much traffic. Unfortunately, both Google Maps AND Mapquest gave me incorrect directions to find the drop-off point, and I drove in circles for awhile (one way streets) and was late. I was always about two blocks away — I just couldn’t get there from here. Argh.

But we found each other, and got back on the highway and back to the Cape quickly.

Dinner was a lot of fun, and so was the evening. Because Tessa is so naturally friendly, the twins, who usually hide the whole time Costume Imp is here, came out and demanded their share of attention. It was pretty funny. Much nicer when everyone’s participating.

Imp brought up the Iron Druid books by Kevin Hearne. I read HOUNDED last night — really well done. Liked it a lot. The humor, the action, and the character development meld really well. Looking forward to the other two, and anything else this guy writes. The books came out within a month of each other this summer — that would be ideal for the Harpy trilogy, I think.

Back to work on the book this morning, spend time with my students (5 in 10 students, so far, seem excited about the class), take my mom to acupuncture, see what Imp wants to do, start tackling my office clean-up, and we have to sit down and create the grocery list for the party.

I’m clipping articles for the first exercise along with my class in 5 in 10 — the “found inspirations”. Yesterday’s was “Dead Blackbirds Fall from ARK Skies — Again.” The possibilities for that one are delicious. I can think of a half a dozen directions for stories right off the bat.
