Shalom, I’m not dead. Just busy doin’ stuff. Working on this and that. Odds and ends. You know how I do. The good news is that I’m about finished for the week and next week, after Monday is pretty light. Whew. I’m glad for that.

You guys, Thursday night at the Fixx was stunningly fun and there was a big, fun crowd and everyone hung out and merrily chatted and laughed after and lots of books were sold and the tip jar for The National Breast Cancer Fund was stuffed with $70!

Elizabeth Crane ruled! Johnathan Messinger ruled! Roy Kesey ruled and brought me a present all the way from Bejing! Seriously– go befriend all three of them on GoodReads, Shelfari, LibraryThing and, and, and please go buy all of their available work. So great! Unfortunately, our photographer friend who is responsible for such great documentation of each event is recovering from getting turned into a partial robot, so I don’t have any photographs to show, but trust me— it was awesome. Every last bit. Please, please mark your calendars for next month— due to Thanksgiving and such, it’s a week early. Lineup forthcoming.

Let’s see. What else is new in the world? I think this is so freaky and I can’t stop looking at it.
