It's Berlinale season again

and I'm very excited about this year's films. Aiming to do no more than three a day this year because you can have too much of a good thing. And intellectually demanding, often depressing and graphically violent films weren't made for binge-watching. Also because I got so tired last year at four a day that I overslept and missed one of the competition films. Speaking of which, why are they so uptight about taking coffee into 9 AM showings? It's not like coffee involves loud chewing or crinkly packaging.

Not to be a New Year's grinch,

but I'm so over fireworks and glad people are finally running out of noisy explosive things to throw out their windows. In fact, I was sort of over them by early December thanks to that lovely neighbor who started dropping firecrackers into our courtyard at odd hours in November. Not that I don't appreciate the discipline it takes to hoard last year's fireworks for eleven months just to drive your neighbors crazy. The best part is that we get at least another couple weeks to enjoy the waterlogged used fireworks piled up on street corners with dog shit, snow and wilted Christmas trees. New year's eve is the gift that keeps on giving.

Everything sounds colder in Celsius! Also Emma hates me when it sleets because she thinks I made it.

I have nothing to say

...about you-know-which current event that everyone else hasn't already said. Mostly, I try not to think about it.

It's official!

Meerkat Press will be publishing my novel Retrograde next fall. I'm so excited to be working with this wonderful press and looking forward to seeing my novel "in person." (Or seeing it in book?) Read the details in this press release. Oh, and yeah this is the big news. Obviously.

Big news coming soon

but in the meantime, look at Emma all tuckered out after a hike up the Scheuerberg.
