Cold Bees

Blergh. Con crud. Woke yesterday with a sore throat, and today it's a full-on cold. I'm slurping down the Chinese medicine D. sent us, and it seems to be helping. Heather's got it worse than me. We may be too wiped-out to do our weekly jaunt down to the farmer's market tomorrow morning, which makes me sad. I've been out of town for the past three weekends, so it'd be nice to get back into the old beloved hometown routines. Ah, well. I'd also like to go see a movie -- probably X-Men, despite the bad reviews. It's got Juggernaut! How can I not go see that? Though Akeelah and the Bee is at the Parkway, so that's also tempting... I lost a couple of spelling bees when I was a kid, at the county level. Being the best speller in my primary school was easy -- but there were a couple of other kids in the county who could outspell me, and they always showed me up in the last round at the fair. I came in second or third place a couple of times, then gave up on competing. If I'd only applied myself, who knows what might have been? I still can't spell "occurrence" without looking it up.

Hmm, that reminds me, I oughta finish my spelling bee story. Maybe this weekend. It's all in my head -- just needs to get onto the page.

I've been whittling away at Flytrap submissions, and should have 'em all answered by June 15th or so. I've accepted stories by Steve Rasnic Tem, Jan Wildt, and Michael Canfield so far. My "maybe" folder has about three times as many stories as I can accept, and there are about fifty submissions I haven't read at all, so I have no idea what I'm going to wind up with. Some broad thematic things are beginning to appear already, though, just in those three I've accepted. Which is good. Of such things are editorials made.

Heather's mom is in town, but what with various workish things I've had to do in the evenings, I haven't spent much time with her. Fortunately she's just downstairs, with Holly, so I was able to pop in and hang out for a while last night before going up to slave away at the computer for a couple of hours. We're hoping to take a walk with her tomorrow, assuming Heather and I are feeling up to the trek.

Last night Heather and I made vegetable and chicken stir-fry with Thai spices and rice noodles. Mmmm. So insanely delicious. I like cooking with her, too. We're a good team, even in our narrow kitchen.

I don't really have anything substantive to say. I just wanted to inaugurate June with a journal entry. So here it is.
