Everybody in the UK is writing a book. And getting it published. And they're all essentially compilations of their posts from their blogs. Dayum.
I need to write a better class of posts, I suppose. Not that I disagree with a LARGE number of them. Tom Reynolds from Random Acts of Reality for instance, has an interesting topic (although I really think Kal does an equally excellent job), and writes well. I'm sure his blog makes a grand book, and just wish I could get it here via Amazon without dealing with the asshat book re-sellers who want $12 for the book and $20 for shipping.
On the other hand, we have some goofball guy who is cruising chatrooms as a female ("loopylisa21f") and behaving stupidly and then using these "chat logs" as the fodder for his literary work. He also has been promoting this venture by co-opting time on other people's blogs. The really sad bit is that loopylisa21f isn't all that entertaining. Certainly not funny enough to be getting the kinds of reactions that the folks allowing him to co-opt their blogs are allegedly having ("hillarious" said one - "funny stuff" said another). I still have the KOOCHD transcript, which is 100,000 times funnier than anything I've seen this dude come up with - and the infamous coffee-chat from years, and years, and years ago - that still cracks me up. This guy is a novice, and not all that amusing.

Some guy tried to smuggle his pet monkey onto an airplane under his hat. I thought ALL livestock had to travel in the plane's tummy. Since when do they let little doggies on in doggie-handbags, or monkeys in hats? FFS. You can't even bring toothpaste on the airplane, but you can bring things with TEETH?????
Yesterday I picked 43 baby "cherry" tomatoes off the 2 small bushes, and 3 mid-size ones off the larger bush. If this continues, I may have to make some pasta sauce from scratch. I've always wanted to try that - never had enough tomatoes to do it. This could be my year - although peeling all those itty small tomatoes would be quite the chore...
