Discoveries of an unfortunate nature made today:

1. I have an inflamed liver – the consequences of which are unknown until I visit the doctor on Monday.

2. In an excellent piece of unsolicited promotion for Shadowed Realms in the December Horror Writers Association newsletter, I seem to have changed my name to Simon. Jiraiya was included though, and spelled correctly to boot.

All items of good news (or non-good but bitingly ironic in a cosmic sense) have been withheld because my publicly projected overconfidence is getting me in trouble with Karma. Except of course Hayley came home today – non-gang bashed and all (which can’t be said for some of her friends), which is naturally good news.
