Sorry to step on Fan Film Friday, but I just got good news (Which is in scant supply these days, what with me being on the verge of being evicted), and I'm positively giddy. I had to share.

"The Best of Kevin Long" - my new collection of my "Greatest Hits" from my previous four books, plus three new stories - is now available for pre-order on Smashwords. You can check it out here.

We now return you to your regularly-scheduled FFF already in progress.

WHAT I'M DOIN' # 49: Christmas Eve

Republibot 3.0's picture

One nice thing about being poor and no longer being able to afford your storage PODS (That’s singular, not plural, BTW. Plural would be “PODSes” I guess) is that it means you don’t have to Christmas Shop. Just wrap up some unopened Series Six Simpsons figures, and - bingo, bango, bongo* - you’re done. Just lay your old books on the driveway in the sun for an afternoon to kill the mold, dust ‘em off, and they’re good for givin’. The best thing is re-gifting. Invariably you’ve got stuff in the PODS that you didn’t want, that came from someone as a present somewhere along the line.

WHAT I'M DOIN' # 46: Writerly Stuff And Being Bad At Math

Gah. I'm an idiot.

As some of you know, I've put together an anthology of my original short stories called "Ice Cream and Venom." It's all done with the editing, and aside from needing a bit of technical support from Kindle/Amazon to straighten out a table-of-contents issue, it's ready to go. Once we get that out of the way, it should be online more or less immediately.

BE FOREWARNED: profanity below.

Presently I'm reading
1) "Back to the Moon" by Travis S. Taylor and Les Johnson (Terrible)
2) "Stuff White People Like" by Christian Lander (Hillarious, but the kind of stuff that will be horribly dated in ten months and utterly un-funny in twenty. In thirty months it'll be in a box in the garage next to all those "Sniglets" books and "Max Headroom's Guide To Life")

WHAT I'M DOIN' # 44

Sorry to be in and out so much the past few days, but I've got this newly-married old friend who basically hasn't been able to make a financial go of it in the big city (Biggest we've got, anyway). He's having to give up, pack it in, and move back in with his family in West Virginia. I've been running back and forth to Lincoln helping him move because his wife is very preggers, and he literally knows no one else around here.

21st Century. Democrats. Who knew?

So Lemme Tell Ya' About My Weekend...

I get up Saturday morning to find the TV isn't working. The kids can't watch cartoons, and more importantly, *I* can't watch cartoons either. I quickly find that I can't get online either, so I call Verizon.

Verizon tells me to go look at the router box, which I hadn't realized I owned one of. Eventually, after some cajoling, I found the thing in the garage, which was literally up to my ankles in water. "I think I found the problem," I told the guy, and said I'd call him back.

I lied. I never called him back.

Busy day today: Wrote an article on the return of Torchwood, then found that R2 had scooped me on that one, so I just threw it in the shoebox, and it'll pop up on July 29th, as I had nothing better to throw in there. It might re-spark discussion, since we'll all have forgotten about it by then anyway. Also wrote an article about the *intended* arc/ending for "Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda," and wrote a review for Story # 6 of the original Galactica.

Also, on a more personal note, I caused a Trekie to vomit with rage today. That's a first for me. If I was any prouder, I'd be twins.

Wrote 3 reviews and 2 announcements between 10 PM and 11:52, and man, I'm exhausted. My hands hurt. Also, I read a couple chapters of the new Hitchiker's Guide book.

I've been workign a LOT in the past month. I'm going to take a week off, owing to my carpal tunnel, and let my hands recover.

Today I got rid of:
1) "The Last Day of Summer" by Barely Pink
2) "Truth and Rumors" by Ben Folds 5
3) "Total Devo" by Devo (NOT a greatest hits CD! I can not stress that enough. I'm pretty lame, but I'm nowhere near lame enough to buy greatest hits collections)
