Fun time yesterday. Next time, you come to see your daughter, go to our neighborhood coffee shop, Cupcake, on Univ and Bedford. Think it is just as good, if not better, than the New French Cafe. Just don't have wine there.
Good to see you all - "mean as a bagful of snakes," that phrase is a keeper!
Beeg, I'm toying with doing something for a library publication with the survey results. People who work in public libraries in particular need ways to keep up with books to add to their collections and recommend, and these social spaces are great for that.
This is the first social networking site I've spent any real time in - it's hard to tear myself away.
I just took your survey "What role does the Internet play in your reading?" http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=936853619251
You had good questions with lots of chances to explain the whys and wherefores. Will your results be anywhere in addition to your article for Mystery Scene Magazine?
Thanks for the pally invitation and for the well wishes on the smoking thread. Yeah, quitting makes a person as mean as a bagful of snakes. And not the friendly snakes neither. The mean bastard snakes. And yeah, it's always the poor spouse who suffers. Insidious little bugger, that nico-demon.
Anyway, good to meet you, hope to get to know you better.
Okay, I had to add a blog post. That reproachful sign was up too long. But it has no connection to the bugs in the previous chatter message. Though if bugs keep coming up, I'm calling the exterminator.
Brazil is one of those movies you recommend to people and they they start avoiding you. But hey, who needs 'em. I still love that opening scene when the fly drops into the typewriter and changes Tuttle to Buttle and the surveillance/industrial machine goes to work. In fact it flashes before me most mornings when I read the news.
