We had a barbecue today. Burgers, hot dogs, pineapple (yes, on the grill). And strawberries and raspberries (not on the grill). Then we had tons of cupcakes. The latter to say thanks to Gary Braunbeck and celebrate that Werefox Ninja got a two novel deal today. We all cheered for her. And hate her.

We also stopped at the Army store I mentioned in an earlier post. They had some cool stuff, like clothes from 5.11 Tactical and some other stuff. I have two shirts from 5.11, and want more. They only had longsleeves, though, so I bought nothing.
