Housekeeping Notes

I finally updated my links! That and organizing my sock drawer are the two chores I always seem put off. I have added new links and I’m now listing all of them alphabetically and by blogger name, instead of site name. Please check them all out if you’re new to this site. Hell, even if you’re not new to the site, check them out anyway.

At the bottom of the list is a downloadable PDF of a story I wrote a few months back entitled Finding Susie Beans: An Oliver Grendall Adventure. Shortly after starting this blog I found myself casting about for material and decided to write a story. It has eight chapters and takes roughly one hour to read. The main character is a pompous, yet kind-hearted cat named Oliver Grendall who solves a mystery concerning a little girl’s lost doll. The model for his character is Mr. Pickwick of The Pickwick Papers. I think it’s funny and I had a good time writing it. There is an “Internet version” of this story of course, but the PDF is slightly more cleaned-up and definitely easier to read, as you don’t need to go hunting around for all eight chapters.

That is all.

I should have done what some businesses do to be listed first in the phone book and picked a name and blog title that started with an A. Too late now. ;)

Hey, that's cool, I will for sure read it, hopefully at lunch time. I've been brainstorming ideas for a novel or short story and have a few on the burner, but it's hard to get organized. I am looking forward to reading yours.

nypinta--I guess next time ill call you the 'a' first. Sorry...

You guys are going to force me to put links on mine aren't you? I really don't like being the only one NOT to do something. Within reason---you perverts.
I dont want links--just like I really don't want a blog--doesn't anyone remember that??

Hey, if it wasn't for John showing me how, I wouldn't even have links.

Not that I couldn't have figured it out myself if you gave me a year.

I'm proud of my links and buttons. It took me a week to figure you how to do them! Then blogger added templates. *sigh* Figures.
I should put them in some kind of order, but nah.

But you're number one in hearts, Nypinta. That's what counts. Heh. I can tell your being sarcastic. :P

Wha…? Nypinta! I bare my soul and this is what you think? (buries face in hands) (shoulders shake uncontrollably)

Phil, there's gotta be a loophole here somewhere. Oh yes, right here where it says, "read it and I'll give you an A for the semester"!


"I'm still going to annihilate you at chess though."

See? See? What did I do, Nypinta? What did I do? (sobs) (runs out of room like a little girl)

Thanks for the link, Mr. Schprock! And you should definitely send your stories and prose to publishers. Remember, the one who encouraged that gets 10% of the profit.

Ha ha! I'll keep that in mind Chloe!
