It's times like these that I'm glad I don't have cable. Just from the few glimpses I've gotten of it online, media coverage of this pandemic has been insane. Yay, misinformation! My favorite bit is WHO's insistence that only 7 deaths have been confirmed, but media's continued use of the much larger number. Oy.

In the spirit of things, I played Pandemic II again the other night and wholly failed to wipe out Madagascar. So close, too. They just happened to close their port as soon as the disease really started spreading. It amuses me that the maps in the media for zombie man-bird-pig flu are very similar to the maps in pandemic II.

Work is stressing me out. I need to talk to one of the boss ladies and request permission to drop some of my duties, because as it is I'm a month behind and I need more than the occasional day or two without audit dumps to make any headway.

Hugo packet!!!11 I signed up to be a non-attending member of Anticipation 09 to get the Hugo Awards packet and be able to vote. The Hugo awards are for SF/F works, from graphic novels to full novels and fanzines and the packet includes all of the works up for the award. To give you an idea of the awesomeness of the packet, Gaiman's Graveyard Book and Scalzi's Zoe's Tale are up for the novel award.

Stopped work on GOU due to frustration and boredom. I just couldn't get myself to work on it anymore, half because there are some plot points I still need to resolve and haven't been able to and half because I reached the part where it all feels like shit and couldn't convince myself otherwise. I've turned to yea old I.J.N.E.a.D. for something refreshing and just to keep myself writing. Needs a better working title than that, especially since it's no longer a.D. Right now just re-reading the a.D. version and translating it so I have something to work off that doesn't require jumping through language barrier hoops at the same time I'm trying to fix plot problems.

Two and a half weeks to FL. Lady and I realized the other day, what with our sweltering mid-60s weather, how hard we're going to die once we re-enter FL hardcore heat and humidity. Ah, acclimation.
