A "Foreigner" tease for fortuitous five

From "Deliberations"
Collapse )

For those playing this "game", I've just done a quick tally in my head and overall, counting all fourteen existing novels plus this short story, "Foreigner" contains six different points of view so far ... five human and four atevi. I say so far because Cherryh has said that volume fifteen adds a fifth atevi POV which will even the score (the atevi will just appreciate the two fives and avoid comparing or adding them). :-) (Yes, I know who the new narrator is. And it's gonna be GOOD!!! ***EVIL GRIN***)

Leaves me wondering whose eyes the finished-but-not-yet-online second short story will be seen through; supposed to be about Bren's first few days as paidhi. Wonder if that'll give us any kind of peek inside Wilson's head? (might not be pleasant but would certainly be interesting)

Weekend preparation checklist ...

2. Shift one of chickenshoot's socks onto Heavy Metal needles because brain finally that, despite self's love of knitting both socks in a pair at once, brioche stitch is easier to finagle one at a time: done

3. Haul out brioche book and refresh memory on how the heck one does brioche in the round so can actually work on said socks: done (the transferred one is two rows further along than its mate now)

4. Do necessary needle tip and stopper juggling necessary to shift Lattice shawl onto the longer cable that arrived in the mail this week: done

All thanks to 1. Get home from work and realize that while one batched up project books for weekend overtime-in-comfort-of-home, one forgot to actually yank and bring home the book tickets so that one would actually know what books one was cataloguing (I'm blaming being distracted by surprise visit this afternoon from downtown counterpart which led to work planning discussion and revamping computer connections to public library's temporary server ... we can interact again!): done (though not on purpose)

Which leads to:

5. Actually get some knitting done this weekend; after a week of icky far-too-hot, gonna be cold and rainy again which is ideal playing-with-wool weather. Still have a chunk o' overtime stuff I can do (and is the more urgent part of what I'd planned), but that's only maybe 4-5 hours that I can do on/off as the mood takes me (and I've got BBC radio shows that urgently need listening to that I'll be playing during that ... multitasking!!!): will be done
