Oh, you're welcome. Didn't mean to get pedantic, but I did. Again.

Hi Tom
With that sort of hometown name, how could you not list John MacDonald in your authors?
But you like So You Think You Can Dance, so I forgive you.
Happy writing.

Hey! If a author writes a novel in the forest, and nobody reads it, did it make a sound?
I'm newt, slithering from the shallow end of the gene pool, into the open ocean. Sharks are likely to eat me before the salt water kills me, but who wants a quiet life?

Thanks, Tom! Nice to meet you, too! And thanks for the history tip--I'll definitely check out Kage.

I've got a guilty secret, too--I used to love to watch the ballroom competitions on PBS (usually hosted by Juliet Prowse-sadly, she's passed away). Those rhumbas could be vicious! ;)

Oh, now there's an engaging avatar. People are going to start thinking you're actually George Clooney or Laura Lippman.

And I"m not an elf! Elves are really tall and ethereal. I don't look a damned thing like Orlando Bloom or Liv Tyler (more's the pity). I'm just cheerful. And kind of short.

Yes, they did. I've always been the artsy-fartsy (as my brothers would say) kid. :)
If you do pick up one of the books, be sure ot let me know what you think.
Hoep you enjoy your weekend.

Yeah - we became ballroom dancing enthusiasts just a little too late in life, but we do enjoy watching people improve from week to week - I'm always looking at the musicality, Mary Lynn is always looking at the wardrobe.

When I was at Actuality Productions in Santa Monica, we shared the floor with America's Next Top Model's production office and staff. What's Her Name (the host) is rude and Klum can't be bothered with basic civility. Not impressive.

Mary Lynn is doing garment and accessory design, now, so she watches Next Top Designer - but it's no news that talent and good manners are often exclusive of each other.

Hi, Tom!

Do you really watch Dancing with the Stars? I'm a fan of America's Next Top Model and that designer show with Heidi Klum. Such shameful, guilty pleasures!
