Lovely blog readers, let me steal your brains! This here shiny website is shortly to undergo a grand transformation, and (as well as exclusive extracts, noisy things on YouTube and general time-wasty shenanigans) SusieDay Towers will be getting a new coat of paint. This makes me happy. And confused. I am so indecisive I have been known not to have any lunch because I can’t decide if I want cheese on toast or soup, so picking my favourite of two colour schemes is utterly beyond me. So: halp?
Am currently reading The Official Nancy Drew Handbook: Skills, Tips & Life Lessons From Everyone’s Favourite Girl Detective. V handy as I bunked off Girl Detective School the day they did How To Train a Carrier Pigeon and Advanced Kidnap-Thwarting. Alas, I am less interested in Nancy’s help in flower-arranging and, um, How To Get That Ring on Your Finger and That Man to the Altar. Hush now, Nancy dear: I’m reading the Usborne Detective’s Handbook which has proper criminals with straggly beards in. Now where’s my Whifflepoof?
CUT CUT SNIPPETY TYPE CUT SLASH HACK ARGH! SLURP. Or: I am editing Project Poppy. So far this mostly involves deleting entire chapters and drinking a lot of tea while trying to think of things that are funny. Dairylea triangles = funny. Explaining how time travel works = not funny. Oh, but guess what I’ve got? The brand new not-out-till-March-1st North American paperback of serafina67 *urgently requires life*! Still as pink and gorgeous as ever, and now with a sneaky peeky at My Invisible Boyfriend tucked away at the back too. Woo, etc.
cooking tagine in my new tagine (eee! even if I need to learn to actually read a recipe on occasion); wondering who thought BSG’s Razor was a good idea; giggling at the sheer lolarity of the new Doctor Who trailer; throwing things in skips; eating lotus flowers while harassed by a dragon for Chinese New Year.
