Accomplished in fiction: Had a very brief exchange with the police, who’ve got their hands full and have no time for the petty problems of a humble hotel detective.
Accomplished in life: Spent a little time out in the garden this morning. The new plants needed some watery love. Since I was there anyway, I went ahead and did a full lap around the yard, watering in all the bed plants. I read for a while before writing. Now I need to clean up and go out w/ friends to see The Tempest.
Other:  There’s a new Spider-Man in the Marvel Ultimate Universe. To be brief: he’s biracial and that’s got some people in an uproar. Seriously? I don’t understand people who have a problem with this. I mean, I understand people can be stupid, mean, and hateful. So it’s fair to say I understand that people *do* have a problem with this. It’s just that racial bigotry confounds me. Stupid dummies.
