Howdy ho and hello! Well, I have decided to move my blog from www.justinbarba.com to Livejournal here so other people can post on it. Yay!! I am probably the only one cheering at this moment, but that’s okay.
This morning I posted a quick haiku (is there any other kind?) on Jay Lake’s blog for a contest he is running: http://jaylake.livejournal.com/1395197.html
I didn’t actually write about why I should win the contest, which is what you are supposed to do, but that’s not what came to me this morning. I would love to win an ARC (Advance Reading Copy) of his new story Escapement, but I was caught up in thinking about eating cloned animals. How awful an idea is that? I don’t want to eat some engineered beast (even though, really, we have already, from what I read in an article yesterday). Yuck! I guess one could make the argument that we already constantly eat engineered plants, but it just doesn;t seem as bad to me as eating cloned animals. I keep thinking about that cloned sheep stumbling around . . . no thanks.
I better get to writing this morning. It’s a bright sunny day here (a rarity for Missoula) and looks like spring outside, which gets me going.
