ROW80, U2 and Lollygagging

Don't know if this post will even come through - Blogger seems to be acting up again, not letting me leave comments.

Which is a shame, as everyone seems to be doing so well on their writing projects and A Round of Words in 80 Days goals and I'd like to sprinkle some congratulations confetti!

On the other hand, maybe it's a sign that I should stop lollygagging and get on with edits. If I buckle down, I think I can get another 20 pages of square brackets cleared up today. Then I've got a few linking scenes to type up. I've got no excuses, now that our houseparty is over.

Well, I do have one excuse. I've got mosquito bites all over my hands from being out on the balcony for an hour yesterday, listening to the outdoor U2 concert, which the wind carried over to us, starting with New Year's Day (link to very shaky video). I realised while listening that U2 involved a lot of firsts for me, including the fact that they were my first ever concert (in 1992) and the first song I ever heard on the radio: Bad, in 1984:



In other tidbits, playwright and author Jean Kerr was born on this day in 1923; I dearly loved her book Please Don't Eat the Daisies, about the adventures and delights of raising four boys, and hope I can find her other books in a second-hand bookstore someday. I won't add them to my wishlists... Got way too many books on there and in the To-Read pile as it is!
