welcome to my martini glass

today

Christopher Rowe and I are going to write a story together.

Should be fun.

I'll let you know later whether or not we're still married.

Now, to the office supply store!

Update: Despite dire predictions of doom, this is really fun. We still have lots left to write, but got a pretty good start. Stay tuned for the further adventures of Penelope Fowler, museum security consultant. Good name, huh?

    Sweetie, it's true that humor's subjective, but don't you think it would be funnier if you said "I'll let you know later if the house is still standing," because that both gives the sentence a more active feel and can be said to refer to marriage metaphorically. Likewise, how about if we say we're going to the army/navy surplus store instead of the office supply store? More sonorous, don't you think? But hey, I really like this post!

    But I was being serious.

    I'm gonna pop some popcorn and see if the mushroom cloud's visible this far up I-64.

    Seriously, have fun, let us know how it goes. The J and I can't even paint a room together.

    It's like a Thunderdome match. Two people enter, one person leaves.

    Or a preview of the steelcage Nebula southerner deathmatch!

    Robin and I tried writing a story together once. It ended up with a long walk through Bernheim Forest with her insisting she didn't want some idiotic morose mind book where nothing interesting happened, while I emphasized my resolve not to do a stupid Clancy thriller. We have since kept our collaboration to map reading.

    Something about the "Now, to the office supply store!" seems really ominous.

    (and yes, Penelope Fowler is a great name.)

    My only question is why are you discriminating against George?
