Here are some of the things I've done in the past week, in no particular order:

  • finally washed some dishes
  • watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  • watched Robots
  • added two long-planned features to the magazine's submission-tracking database that should make our lives easier
  • made some progress on a project I can't talk about publicly yet
  • made some progress on several magazine-related to-do items that've been awaiting my attention for a very long time
  • learned a little about secure web development
  • created a minimal Wikipedia entry for Strange Horizons (it wouldn't have occurred to me to do that, but Karen suggested it, and I saw that most of the other prozines have their own entries)
  • created an extremely minimal Wikipedia entry for Realms of Fantasy, in the hopes that more regular readers of it will provide more info
  • did a heavy rewrite on ESR's recent heavy rewrite of the Wikipedia entry on speculative fiction (the previous version was biased in favor of speculative fiction as opposed to that icky science fiction stuff; ESR's version was, of course, biased in favor of science fiction as opposed to that icky speculative fiction stuff; I tried to create a neutral factual version)
  • finished re-reading The Horse and His Boy and The Magician's Nephew
  • acquired six tins of book darts
  • used my treadmill for the first time in (ulp) a month
  • got 50.2 mpg on the drive back home from Half Moon Bay
  • had almost almost no social interaction for several days (which was relaxing after the rather high level of socializing last weekend)
  • bought some music I'd been waiting for for quite a while: the Broadway cast album of Pippin and Pat Metheny's Travels, the latter of which contains two of my three favorite Metheny pieces: "Phase Dance" and "Farmer's Trust"
  • finally finished moving my bathroom towel rack up a foot
  • caught up on Girl Genius, and started to catch up on Finder
  • reopened SH to submissions

    Six tins of book darts? That’s a lotta darts.
