…hip and edgy new wave canine sci-fi
The laptop is still fucked up…Grace will try to bitchslap the software into submission after dinner.
To my World Building Game players: this no laptop deal might put things on hold for awhile.
2008: Go to GenCon or go to Burning Man? It may well take two years to decide.
Making more tomato sauce tonight. Might spice this batch up a bit more than usual.
5 weeks until Hawaii!

Veronica Robles has two big secrets in her life: she is the masked crimefighter known as the White Witch and she really is a witch. Or a mutant…she’s not sure yet. What she is sure of is that her powers and training make her the scourge of criminals from Tijuana to Buenos Aires. And that makes her very happy.
Like another masked crimefighter from up norte, Veronica has many agentsworking for her. They are located all over Central and South America. All of them funnel bits of information to a central clearinghouse, where the info is pieced together to give La Bruja Blanca a darned good idea what is going on in the criminal world.
Between the fact that she stops/solves crimes and the fact that having a woman kick their asses screws with the criminals machismo AND the fact that her magic scares the poor superstitious suckers halfway out of their minds, the White Witch has had a dramatic effect on crime wherever she appears. In some areas, crime is down by as much as 50%. Of course, she does have some grande contracts out on her, but good luck trying to kill her.
Veronica is 5’9″ tall, weighs 150 pounds, has black hair and brown eyes and a very nice build. As La Bruja Blanca, she wears a white suit, white cape, white shoes, a white wig, a white hat and a white mask that reveals only her blood red lips. Her voice (as LBB) has an eerie echo to it.
In her spare time, Veronica enjoys travelling, painting landscapes, riding horses and listening to radio dramas.
