every once in a while people suggest the best thing to do is get rid of female coded words and just go with male coded words.
"lets get rid of actress, and everyone can an actor."

ONE HOUR TO GO.
Give to a good cause. Get a unique book. Screw over the leading bidder.
Excuse me, the strings just came in and I have to find a lighter to wave.
And then, to bed.
I hate only being able to work at a quarter of my usual productivity. If rest is what it takes to get my accustomed speed and precision back, then I will (mutinously) rest.
But for now, I’m gonna listen to Kansas’s “Dust in the Wind” a couple times, then slither-stagger to bed.

Tomorrow I’ll shift to SHE’S FLEEING A BYRONIC HERO, because the Baroness won’t leave me alone. She is a demanding sort.

Oh, we’ll have some warm days—it’s 87F right now, matter of fact—but the nights are growing chill and the rains will return Sunday.
I can’t wait.
BUT YES I DO HAVE TO GET TO WORK. Stop being so kind, funny, engaging, and interesting, you people! Sheesh!
Black sheep of the von Schtupp clan. I write books. A crow for a fetch, I'm your huckleberry.
