Went back and read some of your blog... I'm a bit confused. You left the one job that you didn't like, but you have a new job now, right? You're writing a novel, right? What's it about?

Holy cow! If I'd known I'd get THAT reaction, I wouldn't have said anything! Question: you said you feel like an idiot. What does an idiot feel like? I should thnk an idiot would be happy and carefree and not at all likely to beat themselves senseless precisely because they are unaware of their own...

Drats!!!!!!!!! I pride myself on grammar, spelling, etc. Now I feel like an idiot! I shall now retire to a corner so that I may viciously beat myself senseless, like the miserable cur that I am.

Tea? Smashing idea, and VERY civilized. No man may ever be civilized without tea and personalized stationary.

Oh Jim... they don't want you to do that in real life... they would scream and call you a freak. But if you put it in a book or on the movie screen, that's something entirely different. They can say how sexy the men are and how romantic and what not but as soon as one of them says that her boyfrien...

suddenly populated by moronic, simian-brained, dim-wits. I would have substituted that for the synonymous "Hormonal teenaged girls", but that's my problem. If only I had known in my youth that all those girls would have swooned had I merely pretended to want to suck their BLOOD! BTW, real live foru...

My wise-guy answer is the world is suddenly populated by moronic, simian-brained, dim-wits. I REALLY detest sexy, adolescent vampires. As for the other reasons named -- human interest in sex, heaven, hell, eternity, etc., that's all fine and good, but humans have ALWAYS had these interests. Why the ...

No Touch Monkey, by Ayun Halliday

I knew I’d have one problem with this book even before turning the first paqe, for it is one of those “spoiled rich white kid, demonstrating his/her hip grooviness by backpacking across Europe with one bong and 35 cents in his/her pocket,” kind of books. Despite the self-congratulatory tone of such ...

Tomorrow, I think I will post a book review, even though my 3.5 years of lurking tell me that NOBODY see...
