I am wearing a new sweater today.

I am wearing my new sweater today. It is cabled wool, so warm for the body, and a dark-fuchsia color, so warm for the eye. I am wearing it with a pale pink shirt and brown pinstripe trousers and ankle boots.

This is all in an effort to perk myself up. I stayed up too late last night finishing the new Marjorie Liu novel, In the Dark of Dreams. It's in the Dirk & Steele series, which I deeply adore, and one of my favorite recurring characters, Eddie, has a small role. Liu's prose style grips me, perhaps because it reminds me of comic books, perhaps because she's writing to several of my kinks: angsty people with superpowers, a group that's like family but isn't, us against the world.

Now I am sleepy. But I did manage to sort through a bunch of my Mummers' Parade pictures, some of which I scheduled in the pro blog for Friday through Tuesday. I'll post a link when they go live.
