Turning over a new leaf.

It has come to my attention that some blog readers - well, one - are greatly disappointed that I'm not throwing fire bombs and bitching mightily about everything in my path. Point taken. Paul, when I see you tonight, I promise to be a total bitch, and will write about it the next day in great detail. Deal?

Yes. Where are the firebombs? And doesn't the food totally suck? Or are you able to get bacon and jalapeno pizza everywhere?

I am a latecomer (actually an aftercomer I suppose, though that sounds very unsavory) to you and your splendidness, but I am reading your book and am enjoying it immensely. And so, in my lateness, I can only plead pitifully for you to come and do a reading in Athens GA (Austin's Deep South Twin).

I am almost thru with your book. Enjoying it very much. Completely with you on Joss Whedon and David Strathairn...I’m just curious which part(s) of the book have you chosen for the readings?

At the reading I went to she talked about the potato leek soup, the eggs in aspic, and the duck in a pastry shell

I didn't get eggs in aspic--mine were poached in red wine and served on a soggy crouton. More details on my blog.

I just caught up! I was reading the post about negative male criticizers and I was put in mind of a time your Mom posted something like "Clarence? Who the fuck cares what you think anyhow?" And I am not remembering the Clarence-gate whatever that precipitated that remark, but maybe Clarence is the new name of all shitheel mean criticizers. People magazine posted something nice and a pretty picture of you, but I am wondering what they meant by "eccentric friends" - surely not Pinky and her Shakespearean boytoy? Your book is great, the project is great, the cover is great, there was a big display in my Chicago neighborhood B&N that also featured copies of MTAoFC side-by-side, so she who eats $40 pork tacos last eats $40 pork tacos best.

By which I mean it is better to create something hopeful and unique where there was nothing than to be snarky.

Keep up the good work!
