Up way, way too early. *groan* I heard owls, owls hooting as I was brushing my teeth. Whoever coordinated the Georgia Big Picture Conference (GABPC) is obviously a morning person. And they scheduled fosteronfilm for a 9AM panel. Oof.
fosteronfilm assured me that I did not, as it were, resemble a refugee from an anime show, so I did without a hat and went with him to the meet-n-greet for the guests of the GABPC. We met. We gret. Then we came home and watched animated rabbit carnage (aka Watership Down).
Must shamble off and wake up the hubby now.
Got the contract for "Sins of the Mother" from Dark Cloud Press. I'll sign and send it back on Monday.
*contemplates responding to the "anime refugee" comment with something about traditional anime outfits, decides against it*
On an unrelated note, do you know of any way other than e-mail to get in touch with the folks at Black Gate? It's been many, many months since I sent them "None So Blind," and I've heard nothing--good, bad, or indifferent. Sent an e-mail asking for status, got bupkis there, too.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Boots to the head?
:grins: Well, for starters, whippoorwills don't have the swallow's trademark forked tail. :-D I've never actually seen a whippoorwill in person, but I have seen pictures...they're very nice, but unremarkable. Their song is certainly what makes them stand out!
Here's the sound of a mourning dove, which does go "hoo," just in a different tonality than owls. I used to run before dawn, and was serenaded by what I thought was owls, but what turned out to be mourning doves. Now I recognize them when I see them. They're my favorite part of the warm-weather seasons.

LOL. Had to after reading your line on Watership Down. My younger sister had nightmares after seeing that film the first time.
On a different note, congrats on the contracts. I'll have to read your earlier posts to find out when you received the acceptances.
