How did a pig get me to divulge so many things? This weekend I'm over visiting with Sullivan McPig at the blog Pearls Cast before a McPig, a quirky, smart and highly entertaining blog out of Groningen, Netherlands! In the interview, I reveal the shameful secret of the character of "The Monk" in Mind Games, as well as a special license I have...and don't worry, it's not a license to kill. Come check it out and say hi!!
New UF Blog book club...
So, Melissa from My World... in Words and Pages and Robsad79 of The Bookoholic Zone have gone and invented a new sort of book club - the blog book club. Even better, the UF blog book club.
It looks like a smart way for bloggers to relate with each other over specific books, going beyond posting links of other reviews. I love that, how it takes the spirit of book blogging a step further. I also love that they've picked Mind Games as their inaugural book!
Email them for info; what I know is that they break books into parts, and their discussions post on Thursdays, and anybody can join in. So if you've been dying to read Mind Games, or if you've read it and want to spout off about it, good or bad, this looks like a great place to do it. And keep an eye out for future book selections.
Poor old boy!
Something very major this month: Mr. Crane and I got a new car! Well, it's a new used Honda Civic. It's a lovely car. Green and gold. Very practical.
And our old duct-taped beater '94 Dodge Intrepid was towed off. I was very sad! It's totally irrational, my feelings about getting rid of a car where the AC doesn't work, the windows are hard to see out of (which is incredibly dangerous), it makes loud noises, the brakes are going and two years ago, a mechanic told us never to drive it over 40 miles an hour.
On the upside, our faithful old buddy would always start in the winter no matter what, we didn't owe money on it, and, okay, I'll admit, I liked how it was a little bit badass.
This is a little bit like the sad feeling of losing a pet. I actually had this consoling thought today that we are donating it to the Humane Society, so it will go to help animals now.
Still, I'm sad to see the old guy go!! You are so awesome and badass!!
