A bit of humor at work today...

     My coworker Corey got his routine thrown off this morning when he went out to turn on the car and scrape off the snow. He kept his coat on afterward, and it was only when he took his coat off at work that he realized he only had his undershirt on underneath it! The rest of us were far too amused by the whole affair--but at least his fiancee was able to bring him a shirt as she was heading into the city that morning. Poor guy--nobody's going to forget that one very quickly!

     I am delighted to add yet another story to my 'What's cooking...' entry. This one is a little bit more special, as it did not have to sit in seed-form in my mind for months or years beforehand--just leaped into my head almost fully-formed as I was walking home from the bus stop Wednesday. I am very glad to have:
--another tale of Hileko as an adult, since I didn't think I'd ever write any more.
--things continuing to go deeper with book 4 connections, thanks to writing 'Beside the Embers' and 'Nothing Gold.'

Awww, poor Corey... I'm glad his fiancee could stop by with a shirt, though.

Amusingly, I dreamt that I was hoping you'd have many more stories to add to that page today/last night. (Depending on your definition.)

Yes, otherwise he might have had to use another coworker's extra sweater, and I don't know if he could handle wearing 'girl clothes.' ;P

No! NO! Not many! Ahhhhh! ;D I'm getting impatient with how long 'Nothing Gold' is taking as it is!

Aww, bless. That's such a cute image. (It helps that 'cross-dressing' has been on my thoughts for a few days now, courtesy of The Crossdressing Song, which my cousin-in-law wrote.)

*grins* Not all at once! ^-~ 'Nothing Gold' is also quite long, so I'm not really all that surprised by it. You're taking much shorter than I did with Goldie. ^-~

Her sweater didn't look that girly to me...but then, when it comes to clothing, I'm pretty oblivious.

Ah, Goldie--there's someone I haven't seen about for a while. ;)
My problem is that I feel horrible summer bearing down on me, and my impatience level keeps rising.

It's possibly just the fact that she's a woman and he's not...

*hides, is very happy without her yellow, fluorescent menace* Although I plan to rewrite his tale after finished Tides...

I think that's it.

Heh, that's the way I feel about the Rooster!
*wants finished Tides*

*hugs back*

That's hilarious! I do feel a bit sorry for him, though his coat must have been really warm not to notice he was only wearing his undershirt.

Don't you love new ideas? I'm starting to think I'm going to have to set up my own "What's Cooking" page. So many to keep track of!

I think I would have noticed the feeling of the coat on my bare arms...but there are days I'm afraid I'm going to rush for the bus stop with my pj pants on or the like!

I think it's just great! I don't have to worry about forgetting something this way, and it's great to revisit frequently and mull over entries just to keep things working away in my head. (Except for the stories that demand to be written while I'm working on another, and then hide, catlike, when I actually have time for them!)

HILEKO!!! HilekoHilekoHilekoHILEKO!

Er... I mean, that's great news. And about book 4 too - does that mean you're any closer to writing more of it?

*innocently sharpens a few knives* Well, you never know when I might need them.
*eyes you suspiciously* You could always surprise me, in a pleasant way, I guess.
*pats knives* I'll just keep these close by, just in case...

Poor Corey XD

Can't say with book 4. First there's the inner cowardice, then there's the fact of all these wonderful stories t'DoL keeps dangling as bait in front of my nose. We both know what he's up to, but that doesn't stop me from eating it anyway! ;)

Sharp knives are always a good idea, I fear!
