I'm working on the new book! Which looks like it will have a cheesy title (I reserve the right to change the title if I should ever be inspired). Anywho, I may or may not blog over the next two weeks.
Also: Nothing is happening worth blogging about. Spring is just a lot of farm labor. If that changes, I'll be sure and let y'all know.
And it's raining.
P.S. I meant to blog about my love for the work of Poe Ballentine. If you have a day of reading, I recommend, Decline of the Lawrence Welk Empire, which has inspired me in many ways. The main character is an idiot like me. I related to him terribly. He goes on a crazy adventure in an especially ill-planned manner. But I guess I basically just meant to say, "read it," and so there, I said it. Read it.
I have but one qualm, actually: What's up with the title? Never understood it. My guess is that Ballantine just always wanted to name a book, "The Decline of the Lawrence Welk Empire."
P.P.S. My grandparents indulged me terribly as a child, but the one thing they always insisted upon was that I watch The Lawrence Welk Show with them on the tiny black and white television in their bedroom. They were atheists. I guess other grandparents make their grandchildren go to church with them- that's what my other grandma did. But I had to buy this book, based solely on the title, and then the book didn't seem to ever mention The Lawrence Welk Show. Still, five of five stars. I loved the book.
