… in case you want to fix a flat tire … or wait around for someone else to fix it.
note: I’ve had this book since 1993 … and I still laugh when I pick it up.
It was one of the only books I brought to Japan along with a few John Irving novels.
Hey! I needed to fill up the backpack somehow! … socks and underwear are boring.
Today I felt so good I had to scream! … and the drive-thru speaker at McDonald’s wasn’t working properly.
“You unlock this door with the key of imagination-beyond it is another dimension–a dimension of sound–a dimension of sight–a dimension of mind–you’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance—of things and ideas–you’ve just crossed over–into the Twilight Zone.”
So, Rod Serling is saying that if nothing weird is happening we are in “The Twidark Zone”?
I can live with that.
n0te: just after sunrise and just before sunset is “Twidark” for me.
double note: once I arrived, there were tit’s and as’s in the shop. hee hee!
Today I realized that I’d read John Irving‘s shopping list and be happy.
My little book “Same Ship, Different Day” is now in print!
I think most of you have seen most of this stuff already in a little different form on WordPress already, so I would really like to send anyone and everyone on my blogroll a free copy to say thank you for reading and leaving comments on this blog.
My e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your names are at the back of the book as well! … if that is any incentive.
You can preview the entire book for free by clicking on the link below. Leaving a comment over at Blurb would be greatly appreciated as well.
note: a VERY BIG THANK YOU to Erica Pannen, Jan Kennedy, and Nancy Roberge for proofreading and offering constructive criticism.
… and a BIG THANK YOU to Kelly Pettit for doing the front and backcover up so nicely.
notes to myself #199
We get tired of writing notes to ourself, so we end up putting something else down at the bottom of these posts after notes to myself #199.
note: my holiday is officially over and hopefully normal posting and checking out all of your blogs will resume normally.
double note: I haven’t been a total bum for the last week.
Just waiting for a copy to see if it looks okay and is ready for public consumption.
As I said before, I will send anyone on my blogroll a free copy. … I figure you’ve read most of this stuff in one form or another over the last few years, so it’s not like it’s anything too new and exciting.
If you would like a copy (hopefully arriving at a postbox near you in June) … and don’t mind sending an address to email@example.com , I will mail you one. All names/addresses info will be strictly confidential.
If you don’t trust me with your confidential info, you can still read it on here for free when I officially publish it publicly. ( hopefully May 20 something or so) … and I figure out how to attach a blurb widgetty thingey over here.
