juliet: Shot of my bookshelves at home (books)

Having finally got the contract through, I now feel OK to mention this in actual public: I have a story forthcoming in this anthology (that's the call-for-submissions; it's not up on the site elsewhere yet), hopefully coming out in November or so. This is, obviously, a very pleasing thing. I shall tell you all when it's available for purchase (in ebook format, I think, since that's what Drollerie mostly do).



Other happy things:


  • Hanging out with [personal profile] cesy and [personal profile] watersword for a couple of hours in the pub on Friday. There was much animated discussion of many things!

  • Catching up with assorted Earthlings on Saturday. Torrential downpours made the original Angel & Greyhound Meadow plan unadvisable, but happily the A&G also exists in pub form, where there are very nice portobello-mushroom-burgers.

  • Setting the world to rights over Chinese with [personal profile] devi and [personal profile] doop.

  • DougStock 10 meetup last weekend, where there were many splendid people.

  • Doing LOTS OF WORK yesterday but it being actually productive.

  • Climate Camp Cymru being on a new site today! (after eviction from the previous one on Saturday). Awesome work.




I think there was more stuff, too, but I forget. Possibly I had a link collection, but Firefox crashed and wiped all my tabs. I choose to see this as a CLEANSING FIRE experience.



Later this week I am off up to Edinburgh for Climate Camp 2010, targetting RBS (funding climate change with *our* money). We'll be there over the weekend, so if you find yourself at a loose end, come up and visit!

Right, I finally have all the photos up to Phnom Penh (well, all the ones that I intend to put up) online. Hurrah. Of course, since then I have another 3 weeks' worth which I haven't even looked at, but no matter.

I also now have both of the two essentials for functioning in modern society: a bank account and a mobile.

And I went along to the pub down the road from the hostel, because they had some bands on, thinking to have a beer and listen to some music and head home again. Except I fell into conversation at the bar with a nice chap called Wesley, and then he bought me some beer, and then I bought him some beer, and somehow it was 2am and we'd spent the evening discussing things many and various, including the spirituality of Central Australia, Aboriginal beliefs, the difference between pubs in the UK and in Australia, urban planning, casinos, and race relations. So that was good fun.

The hostel I'm in - My Place - is also v nice. Friendly people, nice kitchen, free breakfast inc pancakes provided (cook them yourself, so not everyone copes particularly well with this...)

Tomorrow I am off to Melbourne, where I am staying with my cousin Carol who I have not seen since she & Mike emigrated some years ago! And Cepheus my lovely bike is there, ready for me to put him back together and then ride to the nearest bike shop to buy a h*lm*t, bah humbug.
