Yikes! 400!

400 posts on this blog. I will celebrate with randomness, as I don't have a coherent set of paragraphs in me tonight.

I just saw I have four followers on this blog! Thank you folks.

Tonight I went to a Sunday School kickoff meeting. The speaker was quite interesting, although he committed a couple of logical fallacies.

Our pastor was quoting a writer from Time who said something about Satan being the personification of evil, blah, blah, blah, one figure can't do that, etc. That writer misses the point. Satan is not the personification of evil. And we don't need Satan to achieve a pretty high level of evil as human beings. Satan is a liar and the father of it. I think that's his biggest contribution to it all.

Fred Thompson is funny. Or he has good joke writers and is blessed with good timing.

The Subaru commercial of the dad talking to his three-year-old getting ready to drive the car is wonderful. Good creativity.

I am tired of this August North Georgia heat and humidity.

We have finished our first week of classes. I'm exhausted, for a number of reasons.

I have a cynical streak, and I don't like being manipulated.

My son and his stuff return to college this weekend. I get my house back. He is staying in an apartment with three other guys. We'll see how this goes.

I might see my brother next week.
I am reading Olive Kitteridge. Pretty good, except for some of the language. The writer is a master of prose.

Trying to sell copies of my novel. Help me out!

Randomness is fun. Fun to post and fun to read!!

If you need/want anyone to review your book (and try to help you sell it that way), I review books.

Thank you. I need all the help I can get. It's been out two years and I've been slow about publicizing it. Your blogs look so interesting! Made me hungry, too.
