Fake-fans, other readers and lurkers,

Thank you for your patience and your kind words of support. I'm feeling better now, and I'm writing again. I have so much to tell you, like my sexy new shoes, my scary battle with a giant, aggressive spider in the middle of the night, and the time that seagulls pooed on me in my work clothes just as I was arriving at work! (Why couldn't it happen just as I was leaving?) But all that will have to wait for a quieter moment because I am having an insanely busy week. Last week was like this, too. It's mostly work, but there's been social stuff happening also.

The Universe has given me a gift, in that one of my dearest friends is coming to Canada for a visit from Japan. I haven't seen her for years and years, and I have missed her every day since she left Canada. She's not coming because I was feeling down. She didn't even know. This is just a lovely coincidence. I feel blessed and lucky!

Anyway, fans of Justice will be happy to know that Chapter 26 will be coming back from the betas any day now. However, I don't think I can post it this weekend because I'm going away for the weekend (Yes, there will be pizza and red wine) and I think I'm going to be too busy for the next four days. Saturday is usually laundry day, but if I want to be able to pack some decent underwear for my trip, I'd best do laundry tomorrow or Friday night. Also, I had to work late last night and it's probably going to happen again on Thursday or Friday. I don't see my schedule permitting me enough time to fix all the mistakes in my chapter.

I can post it early next week, maybe Monday or Tuesday. Sooner if I can manage it. Now I have to get my butt to the gym to burn off my vitamin-laden chocolate bar (It was this one http://www.purdys.com/Crisps-Chocolate-Bar-Milk-Chocolate-3-Bars-P337.aspx ) and read something on my addictive new Kindle.

PS Chapter 26 has a lemon in it! I hope you'll come back and read it.

So glad to hear that you're feeling better and writing again! It sounds like you really deserve, and could really use, a visit from your friend; hope you guys have a blast and that you get a chance to wear your sexy new shoes (always a plus) and to display your awesome spider-slaying prowess.

LOL @ the seagull, though. I wouldn't put it past it to have planned the whole thing, I've known some seagulls to be evil.

You're right; some seagulls really are evil. And crows, even more so.

I can't walk more than a total of four blocks in those shoes, so I will have to be careful about what kind of outings I wear them on.

I don't know if I really slew the spider because...*cue creepy, hushed voice* the body was never found! I usually evict, rather than kill, arachnids, because they have their uses: i.e. keeping the general insect population down. (Added bonus-- spiders eat each other!) But eviction was not a possibility for this one, as it was sinking its nasty fangs quite painfully into my leg at the time. This in turn caused me to beat with frantic violence at the place the pain was coming from, and assume I got the little sucker.

btw, where was you cat at the time that the evil spider bit you? Typical - the cats are never there when you need them! :D

Actually, the whole reason I was up and out of bed at that time of night was because the cat had just asked to be let out. Otherwise I never would have crossed paths with that spider at that time.

But even if Fluff had been standing right there, I know he would have been too freaked out to do anything, especially once I started frantically beating at my leg. Fluff abhors violence of any sort, and even gets upset with me if I kill a fly!

Oh dear, so it was the cat's fault after all!
Well my cat usually avoids stress and violence too, but sometimes she turns into a killer. For example, she rescued my sister from an evil gnat - she just caught and ate it. lol.

Good for Steffi! One less gnat in the world.
