More news-like things. And a photo.

Finished another poem for Muse Fusion before stopping for the day - a shaped free-verse that was a lot of fun to put together. That brings me to three sketches (one VERY rough and one in COLOR!) and one poem. Not too shabby!

In very exciting news, ALL of my stories at Torn World have been sponsored and are now visible free for all readers. A huge thank you to the sponsors who've made this possible. I will highlight a few at a time, rather than dump them all on you at once, and will start with Grandma Monster, a satellite story for the Rails collection. Ressa brings gossip to a retired warsailor... and gets a little of her own in return. It is also a look at how news travels in the Empire, and at some of the strange gender rules of the area.

I also vacuumed, and played with Guppy and took two short naps with her, and ate copious amounts of food and watched an episode of My Little Pony (FIM). An adorable show - I can see why people have been raving about it. It also makes me quite nostalgic for the MLPs I used to play with as a girl... I wonder if I still have any out in the connex box. I think I kept one of them for sentimental reasons. In fact, my Very First fanfiction was MLP. I didn't have any media to go off at that time, just a list of the names in the JC Penny's Wish Book. I think I was 6 or 7. It has an illustration on the cover and was a rather dense tome (for a 6 or 7 year old) of hand-written pages. The pacing was really bad, the dialogue was awful and I can't even remember if there was a plot. I'll have to dig it up and subject you to it.

I know you guys are only here for the cute baby pictures, so here you are!



Now, in the spirit of knowing how to have a good time, I'm going to dig a hairball out of the shower drain and pay medical bills.

Her expressions are sooooooo precious!

Sounds like you are coming back around to the real world... slowly.

Just remember, don't get used to the 3 hours of sleep at a time!! :)

It's funny how many expressions she goes through - and how FAST.

Good to hear you being creative, outside of the Guppy Project that is. :) That reminds me, I received an e-mail saying I had some TW credits or other...I need to do something with those. :)

I had a bunch of MLP when I was growing up, I still have them out in AZ, somewhere. I read a news article on some guys really being into MLP. I never really saw the show, that I can recall, but I loved playing with my toys.
I like looking at the redone ones that folks do these days, I keep getting the urge to repaint and re-hair dolls.

*Gives Ellen an Astonished Elsa Look* How did you know our secret about the cute baby pictures?! ;D

I wasn't even aware there WAS a show in the 80s, shows what I know. The reboot is really cute.

(I KNOW - I keep thinking about how much fun it would be to alter the ponies... no, Ellen, don't need another hobby.)

Oh, we have the same bouncy chair - it wasn't a hit with the Beast. I'm so glad yours likes it.

My best friend *loves MLP. I just do not see the allure. What is it?

She LOVES it, and the vibrations put her straight to sleep sometimes.

I think the MLP thing is part nostalgia - bunches of us grew up with them in the 80s. And part witty writing... it isn't dumbed down too much for kids, and it doesn't forget to be silly sometimes.

I just can't get over those wide-eyed, eager, astonished expressions of hers!
