Quite the morning

M woke up so nice and cheerful and affectionate this morning, but by the time we got to A'tron he turned into a cranky little tantrumy almost-2-year-old. As though a switch flipped on his personality. It does appear he's inherited the temper that runs on my dad's side of the family (and which I have). So we never went anywhere after the morning mail run & chores. When we got home, he threw himself down on the garage floor in a tantrum, so we kinda left him there for a while, K and I. After about 5 minutes I went to check on him and asked "Are you ready to come in and behave?" He screamed "NO!" and slammed the door shut. After another 5 minutes, I dragged him into the house, whereupon he howled and tantrumed some more, but without any particular violence, which was good. Finally he calmed down; I never did find out what the problem was or what set him off in the first place.

I also got an email from someone about my xstitch website. Almost always, these emails are from people who have seen the scans of my work and want to know where to get the piece/kit themselves. Those always make me so happy because, well, I dunno, it just does! :D I'm glad to help them out and give them whatever information I have (I've tried to keep good records of all the kits and charts for just this reason). This one was from a woman with the American Legion who asked for information about the Red Poppy kit which she's been commissioned to do for the Legion member of the year. Cool. :)

At lunchtime I'll review the fics, the Bone fic needs more work than I remembered (one of those "Man, I really should look into getting a beta reader sometime" moments) and I have to see where everything's at. I think there's still at least one Heat fic that needs working on, and the Zoom fic hasn't been worked on at all.

And while digging through really, really old emails (like 1996) I found one from an SF mailing list that accused me (at that time) of being a misogynistic black male. It was hilarious then too. XD
