Firstly, thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes. I am *positive* I have failed to thank someone individually because... I'm trying to mangle a KKBB quote here and I can't quite make it work, so basically: I suck at things, but I appreciate it greatly and am grateful. Yes ::squishes you all::
Secondly, wish me luck for my mouth surgery on Friday? Or at least vaguely hope that I don't end up in a coma due to the general anaesthetic like my mum nearly did when she had me. That would be nice :3
Thirdly, if anyone knows why publishers/editors/general people in the publishing industry have so much trouble sending out updates when a publishing date gets moved or they need something from you, I would love to know the answer to this mystery. It's not even just me! I have a writer-friend who this week was shocked to discover that an anthology she's in was out already. I've had one I'm in that was scheduled for summer 2012 moved to spring 2013 and only know because I visited the editor's website.
Fourthly, I hope you're all alive and well and happy. Are you? Tell me! (Also tell me if you're not one of the above. Especially if you're not alive).
