I'm fully suited, crouching inside
"Hardy", the six-foot sphere, holding tightly to a
lamp post bolt. I can hear John Marketon twisting a nut onto
the bolt from the other side. My hand aches.

Desperately Seeking Susan
Remember that episode of Gilligan's Island where Mary Anne
gets hit on the head with a coconut and wakes up thinking she's
Ginger? It's like that, except the island is Manhattan, it's
a lamppost not a coconut, and it's Rosanna Arquette who wakes
up thinking she's Madonna. Oh, and people are trying to kill
her and stuff.

||The First Copy of PwP
months we've been working hard on publishing a book called Playing
with Pyramids, itself the culmination of many years work,
and this week, we received our first finished copy of the first
print run! We're so excited!
We've published many different things over the years, including
books of various styles, but the release of Playing with Pyramids
marks our first publication of an actual, real book (as opposed
to the xeroxed and stapled or spiral-bound books we've been turning
out for years). So, we've been waiting with great anticipation
for the finished books to be shipped to us from the Thomson-Shore
printing plant, somewhere in Michigan,
Being impatient, we had them send us one copy of the book
right away, via FedEx (the next best thing to teleportation).
And it looks wonderful! It's beautiful and perfect and we're
totally thrilled to have it. Of course, the rest of the shipment
had to go the slow way, but hopefully ACMS
(our warehousing & fulfillment partner) can begin filling
orders for Playing with Pyramids by the beginning of next
week, if not sooner!
Have a great week!

||We had an opportunity to pick up a really cool
used literature rack, but it's huge, so to make room for it we've
decided we need to get rid of one of our broken-down stand-up

Tick has been canceled, after only 5 episodes! But it was
in a timeslot opposite Survivor,
what did they expect? This is even more of a downer than when
Downer Channel was canceled after just 4 episodes...
||"Consider the following axioms carefully:
'Everything's better when it sits on a Ritz,' and 'Everything's
better with Blue Bonnet on it.' What happens when one spreads
Blue Bonnet margarine on a Ritz cracker? The thought is frightening.
Is this how God came into being? Try not to consider the fact
that 'Things go better with Coke.'" -- Christopher
