Episode 2 of the Jim-Butcher.com news podcast, Butcher ‘Spress, is up! Check it out here, and laugh at my “Rain in Spain” awkwardness as I attempt to speak at a much slower pace.

Also, new Dresden fic here (varying spoiler levels) and here (MAJOR SmF spoilers).

Episode 9 of The Butcher Block is up! My news segment starts at 2:48. (Did I mention that I’m now the official news correspondent? Because I am. I’ve also been recruited to do news posts for Jim-Butcher.com) There’s also an Easter Egg of sorts at 29:57. I miss being called an Industrious Little Gnome. :D

In case I didn’t post about it before, Episode 8 is here (my bit begins at 4:09), though my segment was a bit less smooth. Firstly, I was moving at a breakneck pace because there was SO MUCH NEWS to report, and because I rambled like a crazy person in the previous episode. But most significantly, it was because I kept bursting into giggles for no particular reason (well, Chungy’s presence in the next room might have had something to do with it) and had to redo whole chunks, and Fred had to splice everything back together. He sent me the “outtakes” reel of us screwing up and laughing at each other, and it’s over seven minutes long–nearly as long as my actual segment!

Someone, somewhere, has started a drinking game based on how many times I say “Yesssss” and “Eeeexcellent” and is now either comatose or dead from alcohol poisoning. I really don’t use those words that much in real life!

In other news, I made some brownies for friends, and they are GORGEOUS.
