palimpsest

Fairy Dust from the Palimpsest Road Show

While discussing Care Bears and Disney animation and their awesomeness today, I had the occasion to slide something out of my wallet to show babymonkey , something I haven't til now had a camera good enough to record for LJ. My dear friend seanan_mcguire made it for me on the BART last spring, because she is that freaking talented. Getting to know Seanan has been one of the great fairy gifts of the tour, and I carry this small thing with me, and take it out when I'm blue, and smile, thinking of her and how good my life really is.



That is, in fact, a portrait of me as a Maine Coon Care Bear Cousin. With a Palimpsest map on my chest. And a Very Fine Tail.

Apparently It's Agent Appreciation Day

So I want to say that my agent, Howard Morhaim, has been nothing short of a godsend to me over the 18 months I've been with him, and done wonders for my working life this year. He's massively competent and smart and I'm honored to be working with him--he's just the kind of agent you dream about having when an agent seems like a far-off grail.
