Our Lady of Perpetual Ibuprofen

I knew this teething thing would have its lowlights. But seeing a ring of blood around the emerging front tooth is really just too grisly for words. The poor kid is frantic, and if I were a better mother I would probably have deviated from the every 4-6 hours dosing schedule advised by the nice folks who make Motrin and given him a dose before bed. I'm afraid to go down that road, though. I don't want him to be a junkie when he grows up.

I've been doing a little writing - a new author profile for Uncapped. One of the Seattle Writergrrls got a deal with Random House for a book based on her blog. Pretty impressive...

I also met with a therapist who wants to write a book based on her experiences over the past couple of decades. As far as I can tell, she's thinking about a slightly fictionalized narrative that focuses on women figuring out what they want and how to get it. My writerly instinct tells me that the success of this project depends upon how willing said therapist will be to see herself as the protagonist and give her writer the depth of access to her own life that she'll presumably be dishing out in case studies of her clients. At any rate, I think the project has potential.

I was also offered a gig translating "reviews" of Korean porn flicks. It was reeeeaaalllly hard to turn it down, but somehow I managed.
