Before I Call It a Night

Before I cozy up on the sofa with my glass of wine to watch America's best train wreck television, "The Bachelor Rome," (because, don't these "girls" realize their hearts are going to be crushed into a million little pieces???) thought I'd share:

Yes, my writings WILL be included in this Asian-guidebook series, probably because I traveled to some pretty obscure places in Japan. But publication isn't until early fall 2007. So still, "bummer."

And, forgot to mention that I finally made AC's "editors pick" list over the weekend with my story about meeting Dubya. I'm not feeling too comfortable with that site these days. It's a bit controversial in the writing world whether it's a site for writing or not. I know the extra dough has been nice, but me thinks it's time to back away from the AC.

Not sure what to get me for Christmas this year? Well check out this site for some nifty and groovy ideas from Great American Days. My number one pick is the "Special Forces Training." All the training without enlisting.


Today was a pretty cool day - learning HTML. I love all this coding stuff - so far. Pretty soon, I'll be able to clean up this blog and start my web sites.

Then I read my email. Remember that Japanese anthology-guidebook I had contributed to almost two years ago? Well, the project has "changed" so I don't know if they'll still be using my stories. Which pisses me off a little bit, considering I could have contributed them elsewhere. So, I'm awaiting what, if any, of the stories they will be using. On an upside, the project has morphed to an eight-country guidebook series. Afghanistan falls into Asia but I'm waiting word back whether it's included in the series. Chances are slim to none, but I had to ask.

House/pet sitting this week - which means CABLE TV! Yes :)
