You never know
This seems to be my lucky week. I have heard from two intimate old friends (No, Mark, we are not having phone sex) and one new fella who just can't seem to understand that he needs to go to the doctor before he loses his hearing and ends up in ICU because he has complications from pneumonia. Hopefully, he finally listened and at least headed in the direction of medical help. I don't understand why most men I know seem to feel the need to ignore their bodies' signals and take care of themselves, but they do. Oh, well. Still, it has been nice to hear from them and know that they still think of me on occasion--even if the occasions are related to sexual thoughts. Shame on you guys. Didn't you know I took MEN off the MENU?
It has been snowing off and on here and there is a lull in the snow and wind right now that I am certain won't last long. It is actually winter in this part of the world and it plans to stay no matter what Phil has to say about it in a couple of weeks. I must remember to wish two very good friends a happy birthday since they will be peeking out of their warrens the same day Phil goes looking for his shadow.
I am nearly finished with the atheist book and it has been an informative and amazing book. I'll post the link to the review when it is ready. I'm ready to begin and end the other review book that I glanced at (okay, I read two chapters) and it looks good as well...if it can sustain the interest from the first couple of chapters.
During another periodic Google search I found some of my work had been purloined and like the letter posted in plain sight without paying me for the privilege. I foresee a few emails with regards to that and coming to terms--monetary terms--as soon as possible. I don't like having my work stolen, especially when someone is making money from my words. Not nice, fellas/ladies. I also found out that I am being prominently mentioned in Wikipedia and in, at last count, 10 different languages. I thought it was only two and I didn't realize I had made the virtual pages of Wikipedia, but I was obviously wrong, and that's only because I don't have the time to keep counting. Nice to know I'm getting some international exposure that will continue with the review of the international best seller I'm about to review.
I am looking forward to Battlestar Galactica starting back up tonight and Heroes resuming the season tomorrow. I'm not certain I'll jump back onto the derailed Lost train, but you never know since I will be in Ohio when it starts and the options are talking with my mother while Dad sleeps the sleep of the weary and radiation drained.
That is all. Disperse.
