So I’m back from California and I’m already missing it like woah. The sooner we can move out there, the better! Not only is it beautiful but there’s tons more bookish events and people and just general bookish awesomeness that I want to bask in like a cat with a mountain of catnip.
So, y’know, I’ve got to keep packing. I’m still at only four boxes packed, all of them books, so I have a ways to go.
Meanwhile, I’m feeling rejuvenated after a week mostly not-blogging. I’ve decided to start working more on my non-book blog (which I’ll link to once it’s less empty/crappy/etc) and I have vague plans for improvement/new stuff to Birdbrain(ed), although they aren’t really implementable until after I move to California. Right now all I’ve done is add a Google +1 button to my posts, though I don’t know how useful it’ll be (it’ll be more useful if y’all click it, of course).
This week is when I do my judging for BBAW, so I might not have as much time to be on Twitter and whatnot– though I AM going to try to write some posts in advance, just in case I don’t feel up to doing it later. I only have to judge 25 blogs (or less?) but I’m guessing it’ll still take me a good while to do.
Also, in completely different news, I’m now at the point where I have to pay taxes on my internet job. So…that’s exciting?
Anyway, what’s been going on this past week? Have I missed anything big? Anything amazing? Scary? Cool? Yeah?

I’m reading two books right now: The Postmortal (paper) and Act of Will (ebook). I’m enjoying both so far; The Postmortal is kind of a creepy sci-fi/futuristic novel and Act of Will is a lighthearted humorous fantasy novel with an unheroic lead.
