Dragon Day Friday

What is Dragon Day,” you ask?

Oh, you want my answer?  In an ancient ritual, the university architects and engineers burn a representation of a dragon and raise up a phoenix out of the dragon’s flames in order to appease the voracious Gorge Dragon that slumbers in the depths of the gorges that criss-cross Ithaca’s borders.

Reading: Still reading Honeybee Democracy and picked up Finch by Jeff Van DerMeer.  I am enjoying both quite a bit.

Planning: A nice weekend with the lady-friend.

Writing: Still just cover letters but it was a good week for my little Flying Monkeys.

And you?

  1. It’s a shame they don’t burn the dragon anymore. I thought it added a nice pagan touch to the ceremonies.

    I’m reading Gore Vidal’s “Julian”, again, and it is wonderful.

  2. Reading: Just finished Tim Powers’ collection, The Bible Repairman, and I gather he just came out with or is about to come out with a novel. I’m currently rereading Masks of Nyarlathotep for Call of Cthulhu. I’m staring at several other books trying to decide queue order. Likely Midnight Never Come by Marie Brennan.

    Planning: Sending in my zine for Alarums & Excursions. Finished Lunacon, where I was on about half a dozen panels and sent in feedback. Regency dance event on Sunday. Want to commission a bookcase hutch for my dresser so i can get stuff off the floor and also to go through stuff in storage so it doesn’t own me anymore.

    Writing: Need to work on rewriting Intercon larps, but I’m not the one who should be doing the next drafts. Notes for next Kerberos Fate session. Various emails. Transcribing con notes.
