I firmly believe that every single book I write ought to stop on page 300 and just end with "and they all die." To be followed by the author bio that says, "And then Toni discovered the secret margarita recipe that made her skinny and tall and twenty years younger. At least, that's what she believes, we think, according to the note she left behind."

We'll be waiting in Shire.

Me-thinks that is a leeeeeetle creepy for sure. Yipers. And also egads.

(“The Huns felt a mild interest in overrunning China.” HYSTERICAL. And you are totally rubbing off, 'cause I told my 8th graders today that I had borked the test, and they said, "HUH????")

Hope Frodo still has the ring!

Toni, I want some of that secret margarita!

And neither of you, Peach and Toni, get to end your books that way. Nope. Sorry.

But if a trip to New York while the Eye of Sauron watches you try on shoes will make you happy, I say go for it!

Too bad you can't have a goat and a cat tag along on your NY adventure!

And where's a hobbit when you need one? Eeek!

Yikes! I may have to run and have second breakfast.

I thought it looked like a black kitty cat sitting on a fuzzy red rug...but that's the Charlie Brown in me. :)

I have to say, when I pulled up this post, the ACTUAL Sauron picture the fold, so to speak. And I saw the really-for-true-from-space one and immediately thought, "Why does Joss have a picture of Sauron up?"

So clearly...the end of the world is upon us.

If you are going to end it like Titus Andronicus, then make sure there is plenty of limb-lopping before you destroy everyone in the fire. My vague memory is that virtually everyone loses a limb in that play...

Does anyone else find it odd that you are thining about Texas whilst in Manhattan?

Does anybody else think this looks like the invisible man with the cool shades laying on his back. I'm way to old.

I've been listening to "Interred with their Bones", and she mentions Titus, too. That's a play that shows the perils of writing after opening bills or stepping on the scale. Geez, never ask if things can't get any worse...

Yea!! NYC is better for having you in it.
Hope you get to see Gypsy. It was AMAZING. And/or Ave Q given your feeling about puppets and naughty.
Glad drafting is almost done, cuz then we're that much closer to having the next book! Wheee! and thanks.

Pshaw! I do not worry about the Eye of Sauron. Viggo Mortensen will save us.
