Edward sat in his usual chair, the high-backed leather one near the fireplace. He wore his slippers, and on the occasional table at his elbow sat a steaming cup of tea. A biscuit, not yet dunked, occupied a small plate beside it. He held the evening’s paper, engrossed in the front-page story.
“Edith, they’re at it again,” he proclaimed to his wife, who sat opposite him in a smaller brocade chair, working on a cross-stitched sampler by the light of a small lamp. “That lot around the corner on Paternoster Row, mixed up in that business.”
“Heavens,” said Edith distractedly, as she chose another thread from her sewing box, “what did they do this time?”

Just in time for the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, there's a book! And I'm in it!
OUTSIDE IN BOLDLY GOES: 117 New Perspectives on 117 Classic Star Trek Stories by 117 Writers
Pre-order now! It's got some perfectly swell authors in it, including me. My second book inclusion, hooray!
From the back cover:
Put ten Star Trek fans in a room and you’ll wind up with eleven opinions, fourteen heated debates about Starfleet uniforms and somebody cosplaying Spock in a teleporter accident with a Gorn. That’s because Star Trek fans are gloriously weird, uniquely different and sometimes entirely outlandish. And so is this book.
Celebrating 50 years of Star Trek, Outside In Boldly Goes is a collection of 117 reviews, one for every story of the original series, the animated series, the Kirk movies and a few bonus extras. Well, we say “reviews”, but we mean that loosely: within these pages, you’ll find scripts, Starfleet communiqués, DVD commentaries, fill-in-the-blank games, log entries, restaurant reviews, poems and a trading card set.
Provocative, engrossing, hilarious and utterly gonzo. These aren’t your father’s reviews.

Our trip in was a bit different than usual though, we blew right past Parry Sound, where we usually stop for lunch. Didn't think about the fact that we usually visited a restroom while there as well - by the time we turned off the highway we were both in a bit of a desperate situation. Good news is we now know where there are public restrooms along that 45-minute drive!

Lastnight T and I got out of the oppressive heat the city has been enduring and went to see the new Ghostbusters reboot. I had initially been a little leery of it, being a huge fan of the original and its sequel (notice I didn’t have a meltdown over it – internet trolls take note!), but I love the entire cast so I thought at worst I would be seeing a bad movie with a bunch of people I adore, so what’s the harm?

This right here is one of the most adorable things I’ve ever seen, and totally made my day yesterday. And I made the mistake of scrolling down to read comments. Never read the comments, folks. One in particular kills me, from someone who claims it’s actually ‘distress yelps… I studied arctic foxes during my year abroad in Antarctica.’ Wow. Went all the way to the South Pole to study a creature that lives in the Arctic Circle.
Which reminds me of something The Bloggess wrote about just last week: Social Media Etiquette. Apparently I’m keeping 20 angels alive just by sharing this. You’re welcome.
Also I’d just like to point out that no, I did not go out to a pub for Saint Patrick’s Day yesterday. I’ve never liked huge crowds – not a fear or an anxiety, just a source of irritation that will build to a rage if I let it – so being in a bar when everyone else is there specifically to get drunk on things I don’t even like doesn’t sound like a great time to me. So yes, I went home, watched some TV, did some yoga and went to bed.
Have a great weekend everyone!
