Hey, you know what's not cool? Using lines from one of my "Fifteen Minutes" to win a contest. Don't do that. Or rather, do that, and the other 3000 people who have also read it will bust your ass. I'm just saying.

Vladimir's off on Susak visiting his mother again; The Lovely Emily should be coming back from modding the the young writers' camp; and I'm not sure when Valerie and Mr. Typo will be in town precisely, but they'll be around this week. I'm mostly tired and cranky. Meanwhile, I have an agent's contract sitting on my desk waiting to be signed as we speak, so I think it's safe to say that I now have official representation.

Have been mostly useless this weekend, although I did curl up in bed and reread vols. 1 and 2 of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen comic while it rained like hell yesterday. The thing I noticed was that--if you read "Allan and the Sundered Veil" in the back of the first volume, and then the little world-travels bits in the back of the second, you basically get a good bit of what they're going to feature in the upcoming third volume, as I understand it--the preview art I saw had Mina and Randolph Carter. Also, I hadn't read everything in the back of the second volume, and I finally noticed that a major surviving character--uh, dies. Thanks. That's great.

I miss Hyde.

ETA: New National Treasure poster. On behalf of the fangirl community: Dear Touchstone Pictures, you have put the wrong actor on the poster. Please rectify this ASAP, plzkthnx. Also: check out the main Coming Soon.net page for news on Narnia (Rupert Everett?), Episode III additional photography, and House of Wax burning down a whole studio, as if the remake itself weren't godforsaken enough.
