Because I did have them. I spent all of my evenings this week and part of my volunteer time from the day job reviewing scholarship applications for PFund. PFund is a regional foundation that gives grants to LGBTQ+ organizations and individuals in the Upper Midwest. I've been a donor for the last couple of years but decided I needed to up my game this year. It was on my list of things to do later this year anyway, but the various attempts to bring on the apocalypse accelerated things. So PFund does amazing stuff on a shoestring budget and if you're thinking of how to make donations go further and are looking for good LGBTQ organizations to help fun, I heartily recommend donating to them (it doesn't have to be huge amounts, though I'm sure they'd use that well). This month's amazing thing is funding queer youth for school and college age and older folks for miscellaneous projects. Oh, these applications were heartbreaking and amazing and damn, people are doing great work! I'm so glad I did this. Saturday morning was all about hashing out our final recommendations to the board so now we wait for the decisions.

And I got the first lovely review for Out of This World: Queer Speculative Fiction Stories! I'm very pleased. :-)))

Other than that, I caught a cold, got over the cold, made phone calls and sent emails and did a job training thing and went to a steampunk festival with friends and made a few small donations to cool things, as you do. More ahead and onward!
