Hey, check out that dapper dan over on the right there. Yep, I got waylaid on Friday and didn’t give the standard weekly snot catcher update. So, here’s a fresh look at the face of the mogul. Not even a week left to go before we get to see the final glory of this puppy. I have to admit…I’m pretty ready to be done. Looking in the mirror has caused me to realize that I’m not so much of a moustache guy. And…I kinda miss the beard.
In other news…I’m still crazy busy. With Thanksgiving occurring this week, a little elective eye surgery to get rid of my constant need for glasses next week, a book release this week, and, you know…work/kids/wife/life…I’m a pretty busy guy. I did finally sit down this weekend to a little NES-styled R&R. It was pretty darn nice, but now I have to get back to work.
In the midst of all of that busy-ness, I’m also incredibly excited. Thanksgiving is quite possibly my favorite holiday… of course, any holiday that involves the eating of mass quantities of food followed by the requisite nap is all right by me. The idea of not having to wear glasses in order to, you know, live, for the first time in 25 years is, well, frighteningly awesome. I’ve decided to play pranks on myself to see how quickly I adjust to not having to reach for my glasses immediately upon waking. We’ll see how that goes…or how the surgery goes in general.
And of course, on top of all of that, I’m super-excited to finally release The Agora Files. This thing has been rolling around my hard drive for over 2 years now and I have been wanting to release it to the public since the first day I started writing it (as opposed to Buddy, which feels much more personal and still causes me to feel nervous about its release). And you’ve only got four more days until it can hit your ereaders…add shipping time if you’re wanting it in paperback.
Of course, there’s still a whole bunch of stuff that I need to complete in order to do the release appropriately..but at the very least, the words are written, edited, and formatted, so even if I don’t have a sparkling cover, I can hit the publish button on Thursday night and tell you all about it in the morning.
So…yeah, considering all of that, I probably shouldn’t spend too much time around here writing about all the stuff I need to do. I’m hoping next week will allow me to get back to writing about more interesting things…such as my four-year-old daughter’s amazing ability to speak in the accents of different parts of the country as well as the world. My wife spent the weekend being called “Mum” as my daughter pretended to be the English-bred wife of a certain time-traveling physician…
Alright, I’m out.
Have fun out there!
