If this is you, Shoot me an email andENJOY!
If you have not read it yet, I have to tell you, SHINE SHINE SHINE is getting serious love from both folks looking for some delightful entertainment (PEOPLE Magazine made it the PEOPLE PIC, gave it 3.5/4 stars and said stuff like, “Not only entertaining, but nuanced and wise…blending wit and imagination…a delightfully unique love story and a resounding paean to individuality.”) to the lit lover who wants a deep and abiding read (It just got an absolute RAVE in in THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW).
I won’t be blogging much until October as I am writing eight or nine hours a day in a BOOK FRENZY, and it’s hard to look at a screen anymore than that without wanting to go rogue cannibal and eat whoever invented screens.
If you have been wondering if I died. No, I mostly did not. But it was a close thing in some ways. On the blog break, when I was HOME….well, here is a view of the street directly across from my house:
See how the WHOLE power pole has snapped in half? What you can’t see is how that pole pulled down the sideways lines, so MY HOUSE was completely draped on 3 sides in alive crackling death wires. WHEEE!
We had no power for hours, obviousl;y, and it was 106 degrees, so THAT was fun. The city fire dept and Georgia Power got the danger part over very quickly, though, and we had light (and more importantly, CLIMATE CONTROL) the next day. It shockingly* took much, much longer to get our cable back up.
*Here shockingly is used as a euphemism for wanting to kick Comcast hard in its reproductive bits, before it can make MORE Comcasts.
There is my car, draped in live wires, and you can see the fire truck beyond that, taping off our yard and parts of all our neighbors yards. We were not even allowed on our porch! Like, every other person could at least leave and go to an air conditioned movie. Our house, was totally surrounded.
Meanwhile, there are STILL some odd wires that we don’t know WHAT they are for or who owns them coiled like black non-lethal serpents in the yard. I assume they are non-lethal. The fat Decatur Bird-feed-raiding squirrels have pranced all over licking them and have remained woefully under-electrocated, anyway, which is heartening.
