Remember Dark Shadows? Remember David Selby who played Quentin Collins? (I know Jane does!) He has a blog! So cool!
What I’m reading now — Among the story elements sure to grab my attention are these: geeks, survival under difficult conditions, and Mars. So OF COURSE I’m reading THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir. I actually bought it. Yes, with money and all. It’s a feast! My only quibble so far is that they had potatoes with them so they could celebrate Thanksgiving, and I think it should have been sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. But he didn’t ask me.
I’m lucky that I have a dear transgender friend who doesn’t mind answering my ignorant questions. In case you aren’t that lucky, and you have questions about gender identity, here’s a great cheat sheet. The more we know, the better we are.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: If you were a scientist on Mars, what would you want to spend payload weight on to celebrate Thanksgiving?

Payload considerations and all, I’d pick the biggest turkey feather I could find. C’mon, there’s NOTHING more important than payload $$$!
Thanks for the Selby shoutout. You know he named his son Jamison, don’t you?

Awwwwww, “Jamison”. That’s so cute! The character or the booze? Oh, wait, that would be Quentin who would name his son after booze.
