Your Infusion of Cute:
Loving this shop. The shoes are particularly cool and reasonably priced.

Your Tisane of Smart:
Today in 1876 Alexander Graham Bell made the first successful phone call to his assistant Thomas Watson. Bell was Scottish by birth, but moved to Canada as an adult, eventually spending half his time there, in Brantford, and half his time in Boston. He didn't become a citizen of the US until much later. He also invented the metal detector and dabbled in hydrofoils, aeronautics, and eugenics (including boards that advocated the compulsory sterilization of people deemed to be defective). I mention him here, Gentle Reader, because as a writer of steampunk I see Bell as an excellent basis for mad scientist inventor characterization.

Your Writerly Tinctures:
Going up to bat for the little guy!

CAKE in Space: Awaiting a rewrite.
Soulless: Working on proofs.
Changeless: Accepted!
