Hugo Winners!

I'm sitting here in my underwear, drenched in sweat, trying to get cooled down enough to shower...AGAIN! I went and got pre-hurricane goodies. Boy, it's hot and humid. Yech.

Anyway, as I sit here in a state of repulsively slimy overheatedness, I thought I'd browse. Turns out, I forgot to post the Hugo winners. Elliot will be happy to see who won the novella category. I was happy to see SERENITY get one, and Doctor Who's "Empty Child," which was a spooky episode.

You are most welcome. And so far, so good. Looks like we'll get rain and wind, but no barrage. AMEN.
