Not once, nor twice but o'er and o'er again
Through what you've written, if you would entice
The man that reads you once to read you twice.
---Horace

Zeal with scanty capacity often accomplsihes more than capacity with no zeal at all. ---George Eliot

snurched from suricattus

It's Friday the 13th, terri_osborne is home sick, and our conference call was postponed.

However, taking a cue from suricattus, here are five things that are happy-making today:

1. Will Sliney sent me the artwork he's done for Farscape: Strange Detractors #1 (all of it) and #2 (half of it), and it look fantastic.

2. I'm actually moving on Spectres again (it's been a tiresome slog on this damn thing...).

3. I'm getting together with a bunch of high school friends tonight, which promises to be fun.

4. Spring is coming (it's my favorite season).

5. I live with three creatures (one human, two feline) who love me very much.
