Yeah, this is gonna be a light-content weekend.

Lingering whatever-this-it, screaming headache from the low-pressure front that rolled in, and by the time I finally feel better Saturday I’m off to a family reunion.  So I’m going to stop worrying about generating content now and start worrying about, say, laundry.  Tomorrow is going to be a heavy laundry day; exciting news, I know. But at least it’s a slow week anyway.

An entertaining Laundry competition that I can’t participate in.

Well, I can participate in it, only it won’t do me any good: the prizes are for UK/EU/Australasians only.  Which is cool. I imagine that there’s any number of American-based contests that are just for Americans, only I haven’t noticed because I’m an American so why would it register?

It’s still a fun idea, though. Basically, Charlie Stross’s British publisher (Orbit) is running a contest where people send in occult gear that’s suitable for the Laundry, which is of course the UK’s bureaucratic institution dedicated to fighting the Mythos and preparing England for CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN (a cosmic horror apocalypse coming soon to a reality near you!). Anyway: just because I can’t win it doesn’t mean that I can’t write something up anyway. If only because it amuses me to do so. (more…)
