shaken & stirred

welcome to my martini glass


wednesday hangovers

So, posting will either get more or less sporadic after Friday and on into the Big Scotland Trip (leaving Tuesday). Hard to say which. I'm working on my rewrite (like the little engine that could -- but only very deliberately), which means that I wake up at four a.m. thinking, "You know, that should really be two chapters instead of one, but I'm not going to get up and work on it right now." Repeat until it's time to get up. Still refuse to just get up and work on it.

Also, it is very hot here. Still. Oh, for the mid-60s of Scotland.

One of my favorite things about the south is reading all the crazy church signs. And now there's a Church Sign Generator. (Via Lime Tree's cool green walking cat bad self.)

Ron Hogan, guesting at Whatever, puts forth -- and then almost immediately scraps -- a theory about John 12 Hawks In A Tree's identity. He didn't like that program very much, no he didn't.

Weirdwriter's back! Be merry.

The Times Online publishes The Secret Ordeal of Miranda Piker, which is: Before Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was published in 1964 Roald Dahl pared down his cast of characters. Last to go was Miranda Piker and her chapter has appeared only once — in mirror script. Here, for the first time, we publish her comeuppance the right way round. (Via The Rake.)

And just for good measure: have I mentioned lately how much I love Number One Hit Song? You can even find out how to make a kick-ass pie over there. Much. Heart.
