When to expect the next TLPH chapter

I was really expecting to have it done yesterday, today at the latest, but the chapter is seriously kicking my butt. So tomorrow is what it's looking like for the next TLPH update. I hope you can really enjoy it!

And I hope everyone stays healthy this year and avoids the rather unsettling sounding flu that's spreading like wildfire. It looks to be a nasty one!

And, I'll leave you with a little Twisted son humor, because he cracks my ass up. And if you already
HAVE the flu, you could probably use a little cheering up, right?

My daughter was reading a book recently and as is usual for her, is telling us ALL about it. I mean all about it, every teeny little detail. Her younger brother is not all that enthusiastic about this.  So he cuts her off.

My son: It’s boring! 
My daughter:  No, it’s not! It’s a tragedy!
My son: Yeah. Blah blah blah DIE. Blah blah blah DIE.

My son, budding literary critic, LOL. 

In any case, have a great week, and you should be getting an update message from me tomorrow! :-)

New Year and Sex Pollen

Hope everyone is having a great New Year!  Personally, I have made some resolutions this year about writing that I am VERY hopeful for keeping. Plus, you know, budgeting (spend less, save more, check) and food (make better tasting foods, dammit) resolutions, too.

I've finished with the holidays finally (read: made it home, unpacked, and restocked the fridge with food), so now it's all starting. Tally-ho, ride 'em cowboy, and all that. Next TLPH chapter nearly done, and the book as well.

How about ya'll? Do you tend to make a New Year's resolution? If so, what ones did you do this year? How's it going so far?

And, to start your year right, a little bit of science for today that's completely relevant. I swear.

This: http://shine.yahoo.com/healthy-living/mood-boosting-bacteria-found-dirt-213800904.html
Some bacteria in the soil actually makes you happier when it gets into your system, through inhalation, ingestion, whatever. It actually increases levels of things like norepinephrine - which I know is a good thing, even if I can't remember much about the stuff.

And why is this relevant? Why?

...one step closer to sex pollen, my friends. One step closer.
