xmas me
1) It's my mother's birthday today! She's just turned 29. Or so she says. Since she's the mother of a science fiction author, I think we can go with that, can't we?

2) The latest Freddy the Pig entry is up at Tor.com. This one covers Freddy the Detective, which was a really fun book. But you may not be able to read it, because...

3) Also today, Tor.com released a small sample of the very last Wheel of Time book, in an attempt to reassure those of us skeptical that we will ever see the end of this series that it really, really, really is coming. Not for months, but still. Naturally this caused the website to crash earlier, so you may experience problems getting to my post.

4) Adding pear-infused balsamic vinegar to a mozzarella and tomato salad is an excellent idea. I just thought you should know.

I added freshly ground pepper. It was quite good. I probably should have added fresh basil, too (we grow it in the little herb garden just outside the front door) but that would have required actual memory and concentration, which I don't have.

I got through to Tor.com with no trouble. You & Jo are the important stuff.

Awww. :: blushes :: Thanks, although I'm fairly certain the powers that be at Macmillan would say that Sanderson is just a tad bit more important this year -- and of course early next year. And since I started reading the series in 1993, I admit I'm joining everyone else in looking forward to the end.

(Grumbles. You'd think Tor.com bloggers would get an early sneak peek at the book, but nooooo....)
