I took a lot of pictures of this little skink on Friday, most of them much better than this, but this one is my favorite.
I finish all schoolwork tomorrow, and then I have one service project, and then I am writing again. I'll talk about this later this week.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, I'll be part of the Tolkein Symposium, with Adam Roberts, Lev Grossman, Terri Windling, V.K. Schwab, and my own R. K. Kuang. Details here.
