When I got back from WorldCon, the next morning I woke up, took a shower, got dressed, went downstairs, out the door, around to the side of the house and waited for a bus to take me to the convention center.

That bus never came…

Having an old, long haired cat who won’t groom is very different from having a young, short haired cat obsessed with grooming.

“If it were easy, everyone would do it.” This applies to oh so many things…

I SMELL CAT PISS!

Eureka beat NBC in the ratings war Monday night.  No wonder SyFy cancelled it…

* * *

Offices of SyFy. Exec 1: “We have a problem.” Exec 2: “What is it?”  Exec 1: “Eureka seems to be popular with viewers.”  Exec 2: “Oh…my…GOD! We have to do something!” Exec 2: “I know! I know!”  Exec 1: “The last thing we need is another Farscape, Stargate or Battlestar FIASCO!  We need to nip this in the bud right now!  I have more Ghost Hunters and Wrestling shows that need a home!”  Exec 2: “Do you mean…?”  Exec 1: “Absolutely.  Cancel it.  Do it now!  What are you waiting for?! RUN, FOREST! RUN!”

Whatever happened to that band, the one with that song, you know the one, they played it all the time on the radio…

I received an invitation to attend the 2011 Social Media & Marketing Conference.  On the inside cover, they offer books for sale including: Keys to Handling MySpace.  Um.  Yeah, no…

* * *

“I’m done! Oh, wow! I can’t wait to tell everyone that I have finally completed the most comprehensive walkthrough / guide to MySpace!”  *calls agent*  “What do you mean no one uses MySpace anymore?  I SPENT A YEAR WRITING THIS FREAKING BOOK!”  *fists balled in rage, staring at the heavens* “INNNNTEEERRRRRNEEEETTTTTT!”

* * *

“It’s okay, it’s okay… I’ll just start the other book I’ve been kicking around.  Now, where did I put my Microsoft Zune…?”
