Hippo birdy two ewes!

So today is the day of the birth of the Mama of the Cleo! It is also her sister's (my aunt's) birthday. However, my aunt (her sister) is five years younger. Yeah... we don't really know how that happened, exactly. I mean, at least Sister Girl and I were born seven years and three days apart. Anyway, that's what I'm doing this evening: dinner, chocolate roulage, and presents. Remind me to tell you tomorrow what I watched on TCM today.

A truly breathtaking rant from John Scalzi about why Andrew Burt should not be elected SFWA president. As Patrick Nielsen Hayden comments at the link, "However the SFWA election plays out, a lot of people will wind up with the vague impression that John is a hothead whose position defines one extreme of a controversy. Whereas, in fact, on the substantive issues that have recently roiled the organization, John is very much a moderate." It's the kind of situation that makes you want to write a sci-fi/fantasy novel for the sole purpose of qualifying for the organization and joining it, so you can then resign from it in disgust. It's that bad.
