After a night in which anxiety keep me awake late and twitchy until 0500, I woke to a UPS deliveryperson ringing the doorbell.

(I suspect people delivery to this address quickly grow traumatised by how often I have to hide behind the door or fail-wrap a blanket around my waist to - poorly - conceal the fact I'm only wearing t-shirt and underwear. But hey, I'm only creepy when I'm awake. Half-asleep streamy-eyed me is more just odd.)

So, deliveryperson. They had a box! For me!

The box came from Tor.com. (Have I mentioned how much I like writing for them? Friendly and supportive/receptive editor, decent rates, and being asked to write a column really flattered my ego.) The box has a baker's dozen of books in it. A couple for review, yeah, a few that I'd said would be useful for the aforementioned column, but some of them JUST BECAUSE.

Every time I get a book it feels like a gift. Even when I've bought it with my own money. Books that come for free? That's a festival. A feast. A celebration. It lightens my heart and gladdens my liver.

So that's a thing of joy.

(Wrote this last night, then the internet cut out before I could post.)
