You have until 9pm eastern tomorrow night to enter to win a signed copy of the phenomenal debut novel by Stephanie Kuehnert, I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone. See my interview with Stephanie for details.
Now...my birthday is Friday, and I'm hoping to get all my work done before then so I can take the day off. I'm trying to figure out how I want to spend my day. So far I have two ingredients:
1. Sending Chris to Sam's Bagels for breakfast sandwiches, coffee, and a dozen bagels, a treat I usually save for Deadline Hell.
2. Reading the entire Y: The Last Man comic series by Brian K. Vaughn. The tenth and final volume just came out a couple weeks ago. I've read the first two, but then stopped and waited for it to be over so I could glom it all at once. That's how I tend to operate with series. Does anyone else do this?
Other than that, I'm coming up dry. I'm so unaccustomed to days off that I don't know what to do with them, and I'm afraid I'm going to end up wandering aimlessly around the house, then accidentally fall into a mad fit of filing.
So I'm looking for inspiration. If you had a free day with no responsibilities, how would you spend it?
