Finished my novel!

spooky

Thursday, 28 July 2016, 9:53pm. Then passed out for most of the following day.

Freedom!

Now to find a publisher. And start the next one.

I field-tested the method I teach in workshops and it works after all. Anyway, I enjoy being able to focus instead of constantly scrambling for something to say, so I am extending my vacation from column-writing. After writing three columns a week for 23 years, I’m tired and I want to do something else.

Back to watching Stranger Things. Good thing it’s only eight episodes.

The Bookshelf Sale was so much fun, we’ve decided to have a part 2 on Saturday. UPDATE: We’re moving the next garage sale to a later date.

Only a dozen people turned up, but they left with cartloads of books and dvds.

Our first customer was Clem, and she carted away some of the best stuff.

Wait, we’re making a new flyer.

UPDATE: THE BOOKSHELF SALE ON SATURDAY, 2 JULY 2016 HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE. SORRY IF YOU’VE MADE PLANS. WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER GARAGE SALE, WHICH WE WILL ACTUALLY PROMOTE WELL IN ADVANCE INSTEAD OF JUST SPRINGING IT ON YOU.

Great books, fabulous tchotchkes, ridiculously low prices at our Bookshelf Sale on Saturday, 25 June.

This silver teapot is perfect for your Downton Abbey cosplay. Remember to let it tarnish slightly because anything that looks too new is tacky.

We have no idea who this is, but now you can claim him as your ancestor! “Oh yes, that’s my great-grandfather, the Viscount Harington. You know my cousin, Kit? Yes, he’s in show business, Grandmama had a conniption.”

You’ll never have vampire problems ever again with this ornate crucifix. One look and the bloodsucker will cry, “I love it! Where did you get that?”

Something artsy, something useful.

Let’s turn our backs on Pacquiao. Erase him from all your social media accounts.

Ordinarily we ignore the pronouncements of people who get hit on the head a lot in the line of work, no matter how ignorant, vile and barbaric they are. But this person is running for office, this person we have looked upon as our champion. We will not stand for this. You don’t fuck with my friends, asshole.

So delete his picture, his name, any indication of his existence from your blogs, your Facebook Twitter Instagram, all your social media. You don’t have to say anything other than “I have deleted Pacquiao from this post.” The deletion IS the statement. Talking about him will only increase his chances of getting elected. Let’s forget his existence.

We will not have this blight upon our community of human beings. Erase him. You have that power.

To all our straight guy friends: Don’t just stand on the sidelines chuckling as if this were some melodrama that involves only the LGBTIQ and the girls they are friends with. This is not about sex or gender, this is about being human. Don’t just be guys, be mensches. Just do it (Thank you, Nike).
