Strange Looks

My wife was giving me strange looks yesterday. Okay, she might have had a good reason. I was laughing out loud several times while reading The Deep Blue Alibi by Paul Levine. Levine has a talent for the creatively ridiculous that brings me to stitches, not unlike the works of Carl Hiassen, Catch-22 by Joseph Heller or The World According to Garp by John Irving.

If anyone has any other humorous favorites, let me know.

Favorite Month for Reading

On the Murder and Mayhem Yahoo Group, they asked the question "what was your favorite month and why", and "what is your best month for reading". Not being willing to follow the simplest of instructions, and recognizing that it's National Poetry Month, I found my own unique way to answer the questions. I am not a poet, I just don't know it (well, really I do).

Hi David, thanks for responding. Enjoy the genteel Barbara Vine. Didn't like The Minotaur as much as The Blood Doctor, but Vine is always a great read.

Nice to know someone is going to read The Sex Club.

PS I laughed myself off the couch watching BASEketball, the dumbest movie ever made. And I occasionally do a "Jerry hop" just for fun,

Hi David
I keep seeing your name (4MA), so I thought I'd introduce myself. I like watching choreography of any kind, and Dancing With the Stars is great fun.

David, I have a friend who reviews mysteries, which gave me additional respect for the work involved. It sounded like fun until I saw the STACKS of books she's supposed to read and comment on, most of them by last week!

Hello David, thank you for adding me to your friends list. I look forward to reading your work. Kris

Hi Dave! Seems like it was just yesterday... well, maybe a little longer. It was great talking to you, too. And now I can't remember if you're going to Thrillerfest? If so, I'll see you there...

As for those glammed up photos, amazing what photoshop can do. (No braces on my teeth... :-)

I would say a visit to Nubble would definitely be worth it. When I was younger it was a manned lighthouse and you can see the contaption they used to get to the main land. If you're timing is right, I would recommend a visit to Brown's ice cream stand quite close to Nubble. :)

Hi David. Thanks for accepting my invite. It looks as though you know how all this works? Mind a couple questions? Is there a way to create tags on blogs? Also, when I respond to someone, I've been going to there page. How do you have you response to someone elses question show on your page? Thanks. LJ

York is on the south coast of Maine; Rockland is more mid-coast. :)
