…and no talking!

It’s Friday! The first Friday in November! The year is running out fast.

November is usually the wettest month of the year in Seattle. Last month was one of the wettest Octobers on record, and we’ve had a lot of rain this week, so I’m starting to worry this is going to be a year we got a lot of urban flooding, again. At least my current car is much higher off the ground than the old Ford Escort hatchback I was in the year I got caught in a flash flood near downtown…

Anyway, here is a collection of news and other things that I ran across over the course of the week which struck me as worthy of being shared:

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live in Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
