Three-day weekends are the best. We took Faye out to Kamakura today to let her feed the rabid pigeons at Hachimangu. Though her first experience with them there was good, this time she was a bit traumatized. I think she still had fun, though.
In other news, I must confess that I found out some time ago (09/29/2010) that Asimov's wasn't interested in Blue Squad, which was disappointing. I'm not giving up on magazines, but want to see if I might not be able to pursue another avenue which has been in the periphery but remained fairly elusive so far.
I've started a second Geiss Sinzer story, which might be considered, after all is said and done, the first Geiss Sinzer story, but that's not a problem. Kalkin's Dilemma is done, but I need to go over it one last time.
In still other news, I'm gearing up to watch The Prisoner, the original, not the remake, in its entirety. I just finished watching the remake during the three-day weekend, actually. It wasn't bad. Some of it was pretty cool, but the opening alone of the original was so iconic and full of great sound bytes, that the new one doesn't quite measure up. I have a soft spot in my heart for Patrick McGoohan as No. 6 and as the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh, but it's been years since I've seen any of the original stuff, so we'll see how I feel after watching it all in order.
