I won more of Aaron's wedding presents on ebay. C'mon dude, pull out the good stuff.

If I had planned things better, I could have picked it up on the way to my stepbro's for dinner on Saturday and given the prezzie to him and his fiance. They had us over and we had a good time drinking and eating and playing Munchkin. At last, pseudorelatives who share the mystic bond of geekdom! Evidently the ceremony I've written is passable, so now the ball's in their court to change things if they want.

This weekend, I sold 10 copies of the Eldritch Quintuplets to Lisa's Lair, fine purveyors of books on exotic birds, tropical fish and squamous monsters. Woohoo! Our second distribution deal.

Say... as I was looking up that last link, I found some other references to the Eldritch Quintuplets through Google. Check out this bit, which comes in a review of CJ Henderson's Baby's First Mythos: "[Baby's First Mythos] cannot though, live up to its claim to be the, "[F]unniest Lovecraft book ever!" That claim, at least for 2003, might go to Elegantly Amused Press' The Eldritch Quintuplets..."

The guy who bought copy #1 has it listed in his Cthulhu Library. I worry a bit about people who collect certain numbers of numbered editions. A fussy Discordian bought copy #23 & a couple other people asked for particular numbers.

And here's an erstwhile blogger from New England who wanted a copy of the special edition for her birthday. Won't somebody help her?

Coming news - We leave for our tour of the Western states on Friday! If any of you Canadians can make it to the Seattle area (or a bit beyond) you could maybe see us in the flesh this coming weekend, as we stay with Becca's sister for a couple days before renting a car and striking out for Wyoming. I think we have plans to see (hear?) the Experience Music Project in Seattle. Drop a comment if you wanna try to meet up.

Be warned that you may well come to hate Jimi Hendrix. If you've got the time, hit the Elliott Bay Book Company - I fell in love with the place.

Thanks for the tips. In my browse of the EMP website, I certainly did see a lot of Hendrixiana.

What good stuff? Most of it came from Kirsten's taste-poor family.

Personally, I forgot we even received any gifts at all, because none of them thrilled me. I think Kirsten did, too, because she pulled the candle holders out after thoroughly cleaning her room for the rally.

I think we've gotten rid of everything except my comic book collection, which I loathe selling--not because I'm attached to them (I'm keeping the best stuff), but because there's so much of it, and so much of it is crap.
