The search continues, as ever. I’m plugging away at my retail job to help pay the bills and dreaming of a full-time library job with benefits. I found a listing today for a part-time librarian with the Institute of Culinary Education in New York City. I applied to it because it looks interesting, and I won’t deny being a foodie. I haven’t been watching much TV lately, but I used to really enjoy watching the Food Network. Alton Brown is my culinary hero – he’s made it big playing with his food!
Lunacon, my favorite local science fiction convention, is four weeks away. For all you fellow book nerds out there, the Author Guest of Honor is going to be launching his new book at the Convention, and I fully plan to be at the launch party. I’ve been asked by the Con Chair and Vice Con Chair to post the following information:

You’ll also find author readings, writing workshops, an SF/F art show & auction, a costume masquerade (newcomers welcome!), a dealer’s room with genre merchandise, and of course, a variety of fannish social events during the evening hours.
