Sorry, I know you guys like copyediting stuff, but I’m too busy copyediting to come up with interesting copyediting stuff at the moment.
I’m too busy to cook much for my poor kiddos, either; thus I have this…recipe, kind of. :-) (My daughter insists that it’s a recipe and that everyone in the world would want it because she loves it so much, so here we go. :-))
If you happen to cook bacon in the microwave, with paper towels above and below, save the paper towels. Later, for lunch or dinner, wash some potatoes (do not poke holes in potatoes you’re going to microwave–it makes them cook up all gummy), wrap them in the bacon-grease-covered paper towels, put them on a plate, and microwave them till they’re soft.
The bacon grease soaks all the way through the potatoes, and they really are very yummy this way.
I'm a freelance copyeditor specializing in fantasy and science fiction. SF/F novels I have copyedited have been finalists for (and have sometimes won) the Hugo, Nebula, Arthur C. Clarke, Endeavour, Golden Spur, John W. Campbell Memorial, Quill, Locus, Philip K. Dick, British Science Fiction, British Fantasy, and World Fantasy awards. In 2007 I became the first and only copyeditor ever short-listed for a World Fantasy Award.
