Shelfari Fun

I really do like Shelfari. It's fun, but it's also useful for keeping track of books.

We Get Queries...

For the record, my company is interested in publishing historical fiction. Unless you are writing about some kind of MEDIEVAL "al-Queda" (like ... one that existed more than 50 years ago?), then we are not interested. We will now return to our previously scheduled blog-silence. Thank you.

p.s. The same rules applies to anything to do with "jihads".

Gotta Love It...

I came to Houston to discuss important things with intelligent people and no sooner do I get here than guess what? A tropical storm forms right off the coast. Clearly, there is only one thing to do now...

Traditional Anniversary Gift: A Stuck Pig???

Not really, but my 20th anniversary is fast approaching. About that, I want to note a couple of very important things: 1) one person in the world has managed to stand me for 20 years; and 2) neither of us has murdered the other. Oh, we've been tempted, but murder in your heart is like lust in your heart -- it doesn't count. (Really)

The other thing this impending anniversary means is that I was right all along about being brilliant.

See, for example, Exhibit A: The guy who has stood me for all these years, made reservations for a loooong-delayed honeymoon. (Three nights in the Knickerbocker Hotel in Chicago was a wee bit lacking in romance, ya know?) So, we're going here:

The one thing we're NOT doing, is having any truck with stuck pigs (or grass skirts). No luaus for me!

But I'll take the beach. No problem.
