long time, no blog  
I've been ignoring this poor blog lately, so here's an update on what I've been up to.

Saw Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World two weekends in a row. Love that movie. Our friend Patsy from Michigan (formerly known as our friend Patsy from Malaysia) came and stayed with us for a while. I made fig ice cream with freshly harvested figs from our tree last week. It's intensely figgy! Saw Dean Wareham play a whole night of Galaxie 500 songs, which was absolutely amazing.

The writing has been going excellently. I think I've averaged 10-15 hours per week this month, which is freaking huge for me. I'm way past the halfway point on the first draft and finally cruising along at a respectable speed. Writing at home is still hard for me, so I've been taking my little netbook over to a bar called Lucky 13 and working there. The good music, surrounding conversations, and ballgame on the tv provide a nearly ideal level of distraction for me. The only potential downside is my waistline, but I've been upping my salad intake and sticking to light beers, so it should work all right.

Glad to hear for you. I was curious about how you were doing. I'm sad I haven't seen Scott Pilgrim yet.

Congrats on the writing.

Hooray for writing! And mmmm fig ice cream. I miss figs. I only like fresh figs and I only get them when I go to the seaside :(

Saw this and it made me think of you http://theoatmeal.com/quiz/baboon_dildo - okay, there are no dinosaurs, but there is a dildo. Close, right? Okay not.

I remember reading a snippet of something you wrote a loooong time ago. I remember loving it. I'd love to read this project when it's done. Did you ever get anything published that I could go and buy?

No, haven't tried getting anything published yet, but someday!

I could apparently take 34 baboons in a fight, which surprises me quite a bit.

I hope you do get published. You're plenty good enough. And I've been a book worm since I was a young whipper snapper which of course makes makes me an expert literary critic.
