No, he's gonna keep things classy. Now you're a trans ESCORT.

Good news: My agent just called and informed me that Random House wants to publish my second book.

Better news: She also informed me that since this will be the second book of a planned trilogy, they want to go ahead and sign a two-book deal for the second.

Best news: She finally informed me that Random House doesn't like the idea of owning only two books out of a trilogy, so they're going to go ahead and buy the rights to my first book, and rerelease it under their label.

Excuse me for a moment...

HOLY SH*T HOLY SH*T HOLY SH*T HOLY SH*T HOLY SH*T HOLY SH*T HOLY SH*T HOLY SH*T

Okay, I'm back.

:D

Woo congrats! I want to make a cameo in the movie version.

Anyway to keep your rights and still get the money?

Oi, there's a queue here, you know. Unless I'm being cast as the urbane British villain.

My wife got a new job today. Higher pay, she will qualify for better benefits in a few months (we are paying for our own insurance, less out of pocket, than was taken from her checks). Less headaches-the women she worked with were just awful. I am still trying to talk her into a EEOC whistle blow.

But she will be a supervisor, will be in a professional environment, and will be done with that bush legue Twat-filled jungle.

Oof. Caught me in a Catch-22 there. Do I ignore my cultural leanings by sauntering the front of the queue, thereby solidifying my villain status? Or stiffen my upper lip, and stand behind you passive-aggressively muttering under my breath in the vain hope that I can instill enough shame in you that you'll insist I go in front of you.

Well played sir. Well played.

Yes. Yes I am.

So who is optioning the movie, and do you get to write or consult on the screenplay?

I would kill to see a movie of 72 Hours. No, seriously, I would kill someone. Probably the ticket taker at the theater.

Dibs on being the useless drummer who serenades the audience ala There's Something About Mary.

Dibs on asian guy who is only good at one thing and thus finds himself in way over his head.
Most likely won't survive one and only scene.

So being a parent is a pretty wild ride. Our daughter, Norah, was born last Wednesday, and it's been a hell of a week.

BABBIES!

My 3-year-old at the dinner table: "BOOM!... for no reason." *giggle*

My 5-year-old has been singing a cleaned-up version of Thrift Shop* for 2 days now.

Both boys are totally into He-Man now. That's my house.

*Link is not cleaned-up.

Grats Nicholass!

(Seeing BadKen's avatar that close to BABBIES is a bit unsettling)
