(Snort!)

Here's my question regarding your committment to your deadline - Have you taken time away from revisions to go see "Snakes on a Plane" yet? If not, are you gonna??

Wow. That's some flexibility, there. Nice nails, too.

Thank you. I just snorted Total cereal out ofmy nose. What a great way to start the day! ;)

*snork* Well, that oughtta do it. Seriously, though, you ought to go see Snakes on a Plane. We saw it yesterday. It was a campy, ridiculous cheesefest and the most fun I've had at a movie in months. It will also bolster your confidence in your own plotting ability, because let's just say there were A FEW gaps in logic there.

I don't know... My public restroom handwashing ritual is already too elaborate. I think I'd have to leave the laptop on the floor, go wash my hands, come back with paper towels to pick up the laptop, and somehow clean it off with the alcohol gel stuff? Is there a special laptop cleanser for these occasions? And how do you fight off the person who wants to enter the stall before you go back for the computer?

Oh goodness.

Ok, this is a little off-topic, but did I miss the happy dance announcement about Between being blurbed in the August issue of Marie Clarie? It's in the "10 Best To Do" on p. 61 if you missed it.

Congrats!

See I look at this and think, "Are my undies ambulance ready?"

And then I think I need to hit Tarjay tomorrow and get some sporty new tighty whities, only not whities, but maybe something in the citrus family.

Kind of a last hurrah for summer.

What ever you have to do Joshilyn, to get us your next book, I DON'T CARE, JUST DO IT!

I just had to pop back to mention that after I wrote my first comment this morning, I met my brother, and his kids (my fabulous teenage niece and nephew) for lunch and we went to see SoaP. I second what Aimee said. FUN! FunFunFUN!

I wonder what will be next. "Spiders on a Cruise Ship" maybe??

You should use the picture or a faxsimilie thereof
for your next cover. Too much.

Well, at least it's not the toilet/sink/waterfountain in the Autell jail, right? Although, that would have been a funny pic too! (just kidding, that would have been GROSS!!)

Oh, Babe ... din'cha Momma ever tell you to put paper towels on the floor, before you put your purse there ... same applies to the laptop.
But, true, this'd be a great 'author's photo" for the upcoming book.
God bless, Christine in Los Angeles

It could be the author pitture if'n Joss comes to Seattle and squats in the SAME potty that SUE GRAFTON and SARAH PARESTSKY have piddled in and lets us take a snap.

All the bestest authors have peed at Seattle Mystery Bookshop.

Left Coast Crime is coming up in February- come mark your territory!
