Where did Sunday go?

Mutterings continued.

Not quite sure what happened to yesterday. Grant called by in the morning to pick up the wheelchair, then I went for a drive to Gosnells Markets, came home and the rest of the day seems to have gone. Did get a phone call from a friend I haven't seen for 10 years or so; we're catching up for lunch tomorrow.

Saturday night was fun - BSG (ended on a cliff hanger, dammit), Atlantis, Rah Xephon (incomprehensible as usual), and a very, very bad (ie good) MST3K - the Mad Monster.

From JMS on the r.a.s.t.b5.m newsgroup:

"For years, I've been at conventions and had fans come up with
photocopied scripts they'd purchased from script stores or dealers for
$20 a pop, many times in poor condition...with loose or missing pages,
hard to read, and thought, there has to be a better way for fans to get
these scripts without paying that much for copies that are often

So now, at some point in October, we're going to fix this.

All 91 Babylon 5 scripts that I wrote are going to be made available
through an independent publishing firm in trade paperback form. We're
still working out the final details in terms of how to put the scripts
together, but right now the plan is to do 7 scripts per book, each
volume released every two weeks or so, at a cost of about $29 per
volume if ordered in the first week or so it comes online) or $39 per
for those who buy later. That's four bucks per script if purchased
early, about five per script if published later...which saves fans a
HUGE amount of money."

Boi the way, it be Talk Like a Pirate Day, arrr me hearties.
