Super Important Information Part I

 

Figure 1. Look, Norman Reedus is sideways-smiling. This has nothing to do with anything.

1) Did our goddamn taxes yesterday. I feel I deserve something. A fruit basket. A medal. I don’t mind PAYING taxes. I just hate DOING them. And if you tell me, “Just get an accountant, Carrie” I will nod and say, “yes, but you still have to keep all your papers and receipts and finances in order for another person to do them. From there it’s just a hop-step to doing them yourself.”

2) Finished Vikki Wakefield’s Friday Never Leaving late late last night. Beautiful beautiful beautiful. Someday I will visit Australia and get to the bottom of why their YA is so excellent.

3) Matilda is all stressed about the dumbass standardized testing that starts this week at her school. I hate standardized testing. Especially when it happens twice a year and for elementary school students. I could never be a public school teacher. The level of insanity and expectations the public and the government dump on schools is fucking unbelievable. Also: stupid. I’m not convinced any sort of legislation regarding accountability or testing or whatever the hell actually has an impact on kids’ abilities to succeed and continue learning in the future.

4) Apparently, Winter Is Here and Never Leaving.

5) Perfectly Good White Boy cover reveal May 1: here and at the Carolrhoda blog and The Flyleaf Review. If this kinda thing interests you, well, then, good.

    God. One more thing about being a writer that sucks: taxes. I’m not looking forward to that part.
