A Note From Me...

I should so be editing right now. So behind.
But I just got back from a full night of parent-teacher conferences, and more work is the last thing I feel like doing. Vegging out in front of the TV and watching some E! or Conan sounds so much better. (but I will edit anyway...)

It's been fun to read the reviews coming in on On the Loose. You can read the latest one here.

Funny that Jamie, the kind reviewer, mentions having a nightmare about her high school PE teacher. PE was a humbling experience for me in junior high (Or was it middle school? It's all a tragic blur). I've always been about justice and "fair." So in middle school we had to do basketball ALL YEAR in PE. I HATED basketball. I STUNK at basketball. And it wasn't fair that we did it just so the "pee-wee" team could practice. So I wrote a note to the two teachers. (who were actually seniors covering the class, which was totally illegal, and it's a good thing I didn't know that or else I would've called in the big guns like Jesse Jackson or our governor, a dude named Bill Clinton.) So anyway, I wrote this angst-ridden note listing all the reasons my Constitutional rights as a receiver of public education were being abused. But I wrote it on paper from my BFF's mom's office. My BFF's mom worked for a proctologist. It was not one of my finer moments. It's hard to take a girl seriously when she's giving you what-for on a piece of paper from the butt doctor. They're right, presentation is everything.

Anyway, I'm going back to editing. And if you've read On the Loose, I would love for you to stop by, Amazon, or and write a review (good, bad, or ugly...I can take it.) Though I might write you back...on paper from the proctologist.

I am stunned, shocked and bewildered that you, of all people, would do such a thing. You mean to say that people still write notes on paper?

I will definitely post comments! I'm not done yet with On the Loose, but totally hooked. The first night I started reading it of course deals with the hurricane. I read right before bed and had a dream that I was in a tornado. Crazy mind things. Love the funnies in your're great!
