“WTF?” Romero Russo following the 7:12 pm Mandatory Employee Meeting at Hot Times
Über kooky Viv must have been smokin’ something medicinal at 5:03 am, when she called that meeting. Or possibly chasin’ the dragon. I should have suspected something was up with a meeting time of 7:12, but when everybody showed up at 7:30, she was just locking up.

Yeah, I’ve only been doing this for about three weeks now, so maybe I haven’t learned all the etiquette and protocol the Established Bloggers think everybody should follow if they want to be part of the Blogging Community. Hey, you know what?
I was reblogged. Well, not me personally, but something I wrote. If it had been me personally, I’d probably feel violated. Instead, I feel kinda flattered. So I paid it forward. Maybe someday, I’ll even pay it back.
Now, we all know that writers need to write, but do readers need to read? Or rather, if the number of books available to them was a fraction of what it is, would their need still be satisfied? The answer is surely yes. So do they need One Green Bottle by Curtis Bausse? The answer is no. Hence my own need for an advert…
