Yesterday, I sent an order for an ad to Joe Barkson, The Chef of World Wide Recipes, asking people to buy EEL’S REVERENCE before Christmas because I’m donating my royalties between now and Christmas to fellow author D. M. Anderson, who has been in the hospital. I asked that the ad run sometime between now and Christmas, and the sooner the better so Dave might get the largest possible donation.
Joe ran the ad today! Thanks, Joe! He really exemplifies the Recitopian motto: Be Nice–Nice is Good. Recitopia is the world we WWR subscribers inhabit, wherever we may live geographically. Believe me, it’s a great place to be.
World Wide Recipes, in case you don’t know about it, is the best darn recipezine in the whole darn universe. Click on that link up there and go look around. You’ll be glad you did.
I signed up for NaNoBloPo this month, in which one pledges to post every day for a month. I figured why not? since I post every dang day anyway, unless there’s a power outage. The electricity, I mean, not me. They have daily prompts, which is fun. Today’s is “If you could erase one kind of animal from the face of the earth, what would it be?” I guess “assholes” probably doesn’t count.
My answer is: bedbugs. Until somebody shows me what ecological purpose bedbugs serve that would destroy the ecosystem if it were removed, that’s my final answer.
