Oh, Say it isn't So...

A few things I want to touch on today.

Alex J Cavanaugh's super-giant book release extravaganza is tomorrow. It's going to be huge. If you follow very many writerly blogs then you'll probably see quite a bit about that tomorrow. Just keep in mind that you'll be able to own your very own copy in less than a day. I plan on posting more about that tomorrow though.

Comment of the week last week was pretty tough for me, last Monday's post brought in a huge number of very interesting points. It looks like many of us are used to rubbing elbows with the rich and famous. All good. I briefly considered one of them.

But, I decided to go with this one:


For some context, I'd made the point in the post that I generally consider driving dangerous enough that I say my final goodbye's and set my affairs in order before doing something as mundane as going to the grocery store. I like being compared to Shakespeare. Well, a character from one of his plays at least.

It would be easy to turn this into a buddy network celebration, so I'll try to make sure the next one I do isn't to someone I'm necessarily super regular about interacting with, if at all possible.

Finally, it's Monday again. Ugh.I feel like today's post is somewhat poor. I'll do better tomorrow.

Yes, one more day! Everyone feel free to stop by for the big Ninja meltdown.

Having read Alex's first gift to the world, I can't wait for this one!!!

The reading is easy, the action pulls you in and Alex's humor shows in his first writing...it was a delight. I look forward to reading his next...and his next.

I'd like to thank the Academy...no wait, wrong speech. You like me, you really like me!

Alex's blogfest will be an online tsunami. It should be fun to surf on that wave.

So, really, what you're saying is if someone flatters you up, they get to be commenter of the week?
:P

And thanks much for the awesome review you posted! I really appreciate it! :)

Bah... forgot the subscribe box.

Looking forward to Alex's blog bash. Unfortunately, I will be traveling for most of it, but hope to catch up to everyone's Cassa-Goodness in the evening.

And make sure you have your Accidental Life/Dismemberment Insurance paid up before you go the grocery store today.

Winter finally showed up here, so I'd make sure all was in order before driving today. Luckily, I don't have to go anywhere today.

I think if you go around saying something like, "Avenge me," you'll need a cape.

I am awesome at Balderdash, just saying. I always dominate but that would be a fun game with a bunch of writers. It would probably be much more challenging.

I can't wait to see the state of the blogosphere tomorrow--posts about Alex's book will be everywhere. :D

Ciara said...

Yep, I'll be participating, too. :)

Cindy said...

I love that new header of yours in time for CassaFire. :)

Rusty, I forgot to mention my extended absence form your blog. Um...I was locked out of most for awhile due to overzealous parental controls hubster installed. I'm back, now. :)
