Happy New Year! Welcome 2006. Farewell 2005.

It occurs to me that I haven't taken any Prozac in several days and none of my Effexor withdrawal effects have returned. Hurray! I'm clean! Huge, HUGE thanks go out to t_rex for suggesting Prozac as a means to step off the Effexor. I'm very glad to finally be rid of all anti-depressants. Adderall much better.

fosteronfilm hung up my new mirror, which prompted a manic cleaning spree. The master bath is now shiny. The rest of the house, not so much.

Yesterday we rang in the new year with a low-key celebration. We watched the new Doctor Who episode, "The Christmas Invasion," while sipping Tom Collinses made with Bombay Sapphire gin. While I will truly miss Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, the tenth Doctor is hawt. I was somewhat skeptical when I first saw him, because he seems so young, but after watching him in action--ooo, yummy! Me likie. Rawr.


Writing Stuff

I've started my end-of-year writing bookkeeping. My head hurts already. Or maybe I'm hungover--although that seems unlikely as I only had one drink.

And, *drum roll please* The Town Drunk, britzkrieg's new webzine, is now officially open for submissions. Make us laugh! (With you, not at you. Cross my heart.)

"The Son that Pain Made" is now out in the Jan. 2006 (#6) issue of Aberrant Dreams alongside their "Reader's Eye On . . ." interview of me. Also, the editor informed me that they recently switched printers so I'll also be receiving a contrib. hardcopy of this issue. Coolness. Go read. It's free! Snazzy cover art:

I'm not sure what it says about me that I really relate to the cover girl.
I'm feeling:
mellow mellow

Happy New Year!
Regarding the Aberrant Dreams cover art: I think they just found the next undead Cindy Craword.

Is David Tennant the guy that plays Barty Crouch Jr. in the latest HP movie? If so, HAWT to the nth degree!!!

Wah! I tried finding Casanova, (or rather I prodded fosteronfilm to engage his download-fu) but it eluded all efforts to download or otherwise acquire it. Pook. I'm really curious.

Happy new year to you too. If you want to see David Tennant in a REALLY HAWT role, track down the recent BBC production of Casanova. Pantpantpant... seems I can only fangirl British actors.

Right. OK.

I have the video that I taped off the TV, because the ABC here in Australia is very good about getting British shows (except for the yummy production of Sharpe, but this is not the place to bitch about that).

Try the BBC Online shop (www.bbcshop.com) or Amazon UK. It's available from both these places, in Region 2 format. I couldn't find it on Amazon.com.

I don't know of any download sites, because 1) they mostly aren't region 4 and I haven't figured out how to make my player region free yet and 2) piracy is naughty.
