what's making me happy this week - 18 august 2015  
(delayed from the usual Sunday post)

- I dislocated the middle joint on ring finger on my right hand while playing Aussie Rules Thursday night. I was able to pop it right back into place, but the finger tip hurt on contact so I was worried it might be broken. It was a pretty good dislocation - I wish I'd taken a picture before putting it back into place. Went for x-rays Saturday, heard Monday no broken finger. So that's good!

- The website for an imaginary 1963-1964 Fantastic Four TV Series (http://www.auntpetunia.com/). A lot of fun to read, and makes references to many actors and writers who would be famous for genre work later in the 1960s. This is the kind of thing that would make a perfect nominee for the Best Related Work Hugo. Alas, it apparently first appeared in 2014 (according to Mike Glyer of the great fan website File 770, who looked it up on the Internet Wayback Machine).

- Worldcon is coming! It will be my first Worldcon since Reno in 2011 and my third overall. I seem to get to WorldCon about once every 4-5 years - I also went to LACon in 2006. I'm looking forward to the event, and to catching up with various writing and sci-fi friends who I haven't seen in a while.
