You know that it's been pretty bad when the temperature outside is 93, and you feel cool. Compared to 110, I guess it is.

Excitement is starting to build; the Chicago WorldCon is coming up. We're still about two weeks away, but schedules of activities are leaking into the Internet, and some of the SF authors whose blogs and yahoogroups I follow have been burbling over what they'll be doing there. I can't help but smile.

I hear tell that today is National Rum Day. I won't start celebrating it until I get home, but I will try to recall to toast the event.

And thanks for reminding me. I was too brain-burned to remember to get a bottle out...

Please stop into the art show and introduce yourself - I'm running it, so not likely to get out of the room much. There's a reception on Friday after the Chesley Awards - snackies and cash bar.

We'll certainly be by, we always look in. Will you have your LJ name on the badge, perhaps?

My badge will say Trouble - like the name of my journal, I am Kerry aka Trouble.

I'll try to be no trouble, then, since you have that cornered.

Oops.

Will you have any books, and if so, any by Rachel Caine? If you do, my wife is on the prowl for some.

She's just finished reading Undone, and so she's looking for Unknown and the two books thereafter in that series (whose appellation is unknown to me!)

Alas, I don't have any in the Outcast series..... just the first five Weather Warden books.

I don't tend to have much in the urban fantasy/paranormal romance subgenre, actually. Alas!
