Holy crap! A new blog post! Let's hope it's mind-blowing, earth-shattering and dare I say death-defying!
Are you wondering what's happened to me? I'm kind of wondering that myself.
The truth is that I am working a lot (like everyone else), I'm tired, I'm preoccupied, my health problems are kicking up their heels again, and all that is not very interesting.
However: I'm doing a lot of cool reading for work these days. I'm working on a reading program for what are these days termed "juvenile offenders," so part of what I get to do is talk with two writing instructors/published authors about literature that would be appropriate for this population. Despite my thoroughly liberal arts background, I'm getting introduced to a lot of great fiction I haven't read before. Since I LOVE to read, and I am a huge lit geek, this is fine by me.
Speaking of that, I need to get back to it. But rest assured that I am still alive, just posting sporadically. I leave you with this snippet:
Viva: Do kangaroos have bellybuttons?
Sweet Dub: You know, that's a good question. I bet they don't have a cute little bellybutton like you.
Viva: Why not?
Sweet Dub: Because you are a placental mammal, and a kangaroo is not.
I'm serious. Do you see? Do you see what I am dealing with?
Got a little couch potato?
