And, no, I'm not obsessed with The Morrigan. At least, that's what she told me to say.
The neighborhood isn’t exactly the country, but we’re surrounded by heavily-forested, undeveloped tracts of land. Wildlife of all kinds come around. I’ve seen beavers, woodchucks, foxes, hawks, buzzards, raccoons, and skunks. However, deer are all over.
I hate Bambi and his miserable ilk. They’re the worst possible combination of size, curiosity, and stupidity. Why did the deer cross the road? To get to the other side and your Aunt Fannie’s vegetable patch. On the way, it stopped dead in its tracks, right in front of Crash and The Morrigan as we were zipping around on twisty little roads, committing misdemeanor hooliganism.
Bambi is oblivious to the danger of speeding vehicles and doesn’t always react to the blast of a warning horn. I’ve taken to yelling at them. Roaring like a crazy person (don't say it). This tends to be effective. At least most of the trees are bare and I can see them coming at a good distance.
I’ve never hunted deer in my life. You think they’d return the favor.
Snow started falling a little while ago. It made me think of how clean and beautiful the world appears under a blanket of pristine whiteness. Snow keeps The Morrigan and me off the road, so you know where this is going.
Sometimes I consider moving farther south. Maybe Costa Rica. Do they have deer?
Now that I have that out of my system,
MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYBODY, AND MY SINCEREST WISHES FOR A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!
I love this anime. There are several wonderful pieces in the soundtrack. This one always gets me. "Liar you lie!"
Stay tuned for the advent of the Outlaw Girls...
I HAZ PUBLISHER!
I found a home for Never!
After years of frustration with the usual route of querying agents, who nibbled but didn't bite, I chose to go another way. It's indy, not vanity, and Artema is run very professionally. No fees and plenty of support. I even have a publisher-provided author's web site at http://crashfroelich.weebly.com/. (You can't believe how tickled I am to be able to write that.) If you follow the hard-cover link, the Lulu site has a nice preview dialog.
Also, I'm having a Facebook event, next Saturday: http://www.facebook.com/events/31517131
Apologies for abusing my friends' bandwidth to toot my own horn, but it's a bit like a birth announcement. Except the pregnancy lasted two years and all that came out was my hair. Well, a book, too.
There are some things heard in a brick and mortar bookseller that won't be spoken anywhere else. Allegedly, these requests are the real deal. If not, I blame my source.
Can you tell me who wrote Shakespeare?
I'm looking for a book but I only know the title, not the author. it's called "Dante's Inferno."
I definitely don't want non-fiction. I read only autobiographies and history.
Do you have Shakespeare in English?
Your Honor, I rest on your face.
