• Merriam-Webster online doesn’t have “spheniscidaephile” in its dictionary. Augh!

    Congrats on everything, and glad you’re having a boatload of good stories year. Yeah!

    December 28, 2006
  • Cheers to you sir. Love smiles on us all this year and may you have a wonderful 2007 🙂

    December 28, 2006
  • Congrats on the Nebula nod! And good luck finding that balance in 2007!

  • Great to hear from you again, Bob! Also great:

    • to see that your story made the ballot. A worthy story, and I’ll let you know how it does in the Sturgeon competition. w00t and yahoo and all that, bigtime!
    • about the story reprint. Short fiction so seldom stays in print, disappearing with the pulp in a month’s time, so that’s super news. Yay!
    • About your being in a serious relationship. ‘Bout damned time, man! You’re a fine man and I’m sure an excellent partner. I look forward to reading about your daily mundane togetherness here on LJ.
    • That you got my card, even though I didn’t use enough postage (I think you were in that batch of 37-centers, sigh).

    More from Bob!

    To catch you up without having to read all my mundane entries, here are a few recent ones of thinkiness: About love; twoabout growing older; about deja vu and the brain; and one about my hydraulic theory of psychology.

    Oh, and of course a little financial-political reading and a dash of astro-goodness.

    There, you’re all caught up on my LJ *g*

  • I squealed out loud about “Neanderthals.” At work, even. Congratulations (bad dog)!

    Cute picture of Ellie, too. Post some of the two of you, okay? I love seeing you look happy.

    BTW, I’m going to be in NYC for the Nebs this year, to see Jim honored as Grand Master. I think I’m maybe supposed to talk about him, so there’s no sliding out of it.

  • Hey Luke!

    “Spheniscidae” are penguins. Ever since Happy Feet. Thanks for the good wishes.

    December 28, 2006
  • Thank you sir. I hope your 2007 rawks! as the kids say.

    December 28, 2006
  • Hey John. I see I’m not the only one making quasi-resolutions. Good for you. I’ll trade your Maine pictures for Brooklyn pictures. Hardly seems fair.

    Happy hunting in 2007.

    December 28, 2006
  • Hey! Now I have my reading list through April. Thanks for the kind words. That is a *lovely* cow you’ve got there.

    December 28, 2006
  • Thank you, thank you. That’s great news about the Nebulas—Ellie’s house is just across the street from the hotel. It will be grand. More pictures of us coming soon.

    December 28, 2006
  • Sweetie, if you don’t mind I’ll post some on my journal.

    December 28, 2006
  • Post away, Penguin Girl.

    December 28, 2006
  • Done.

    December 28, 2006
  • Welcome back and happy new year!

    December 29, 2006
  • Excellent news about the stories! Congrats!

    Looking forward to the pictures. (I should “friend” Eleanor so I can find them….)

  • Moo. That is all. Just, “Moo.”

    Yeah, Bob lives! I thought you had been transported off to Nogales: the Land of Vanished Friends. Tandoori says “Hi.”


    December 30, 2006
  • Thank you! You too.

    December 31, 2006
  • Thanks, Barbara—I’m pretty happy about it. And I see you’re already on El’s list.

    December 31, 2006
  • God, I know—I owe the Tandoori a letter, too.
