That's just brilliant! I don't know why I never made that connection before. It would explain so, so much, wouldn't it?

I'm thinking it'd be all three "wise men" in his IV, rather than just Jack...

Good morning Cantina Denizens.

Spent part of the afternoon yesterday at the local Barnes and Noble and am now wondering if I should be cooking up a UF story, a multi-book fantasy epic, or continuing with the tales of Kat and Mouse.

Or this idea for a Bay City cyborg SWAT team.

That's a lot of money to lay out on books, particularly all at one go.

So, I have a coworker who is about three months pregnant. Every morning she peppers me with questions about pregnancy, babies, doctors, etc. This is weird as I do not have kids, but somehow she's decided I'm an expert. Maybe because I read a lot.

Her questions are always ones that are obvious to me or would be easily found if she'd read the copy of What to Expect When You're Expecting that I gave her.

Today's, however, takes the cake in REALLY?! questions...

Her: "So, if the doctor tells me I can take my allergy medicine, can I take it?"
Me: "Wait. Repeat that."
Her: "My allergies are bad today. I called my doctor and she said I can take my medicine for it. So, do you think I can take it?"
Me: "Of course. Your doctor told you it's safe."
Her: "Oh, okay."

I did wonder that... But then it's that confrontation thing, isn't it. People don't like feeling like they're being mean to people. Boo. Then again, I've tried it and darned if he didn't take it as 'I really fancy you. Let's change you to suit me better.' Denser than an igneous rock...

Also, yay for lots of book-buying! I'm not allowed any more for several months, though, I've decided. Not just because I'm broke, either! I looked this past week and I have about 25 physical books to read. That doesn't count the audios or the ebooks, either. I usually manage to keep fairly on top of things in the TBR pile department!

KITTY: "Hi! I'm Kitty, this is Helen and Alex, and we're going to be your bloodthirsty pirates for the day!

HELEN: Not bloodthirsty.

KITTY: What?

HELEN: We're not bloodthirsty

KITTY: Why not? “Hi, I'm Kitty and I'm going to be your polite and considerate pirate for the day” doesn't have the same ring to it.

HELEN: Humor me.

KITTY: Fine! Listen up! Policy change! We're no longer bloodthirsty pirates. We're enlightened pirates who are concerned about the environment and the rights of our fellow man. In the interest of not inflicting too much stress on you, the designated victims, we ask that you please keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times, give us everything we ask for, and no one will get hurt."
Thoughts? Too silly?

Health and safety concious pirates is just what literature needs right now, so write on please.

She's not looking for an expert. She's looking for a replacement brain probably - just my opinion - because her's isn't up to par.

They.... don't? Even when they deserve it??




*wonders what's wrong with me*



... which is rhetorical, and does not require answering.

Before I go and start formally asking on the Beta forum, are there any people here that do contemporary/urban fantasy-ish beta reads? I think I've got my first draft about as ready as it's going to get and I'm going to be dropping the first chapter off in SYW soon for people to take a gander at it. Although I should say it's probably closer to Clive Barker/Neil Gaiman than it is to Jim Butcher/Laurell K. Hamilton.

Health and safety conscious pirates is just what literature needs right now, so write on please.
Only humans in the story. Designing an alien makes me tired just to think about. I don't want to work that hard on what is essentially a pretty silly story.

Jim Butcher and Laurell K. Hamilton are nothing alike. Neither are Clive Barker and Neil Gaiman...

I used to have a thing here that said the progress of my current WIPs. I removed them when the progress hadn't changed in two years.

I meant more in terms of chronological feel. Clive Barker and Neil Gaiman belong to an older school of fantasy writing that had elements of horror in it and were more focused on how weird and messed up the world was, usually in 3rd person. Laurell K. Hamilton and Jim Butcher are more fast paced, action-y, first person stories that also focus somewhat on investigative methodology.
