Did you know that for the class of 2012, shampoo and conditioner have always been available in the same bottle, and that you've always been able to take someone's temperature via the ear? (Lucky, lucky them, especially on that last one!) Other classes are also featured on the link, and it makes for fascinating reading. (My favorite tidbit, from the class of 2004: "The year they were born, the New York Times announced that the "boom in video games," a fad, had come to an end.")

There are days where the hardest thing is to make yourself just sit down and write. Like when you would rather be cleaning your refrigerator with a q-tip which I know does not sound like The Best but when you are stuck on a chapter or a character refuses to die even though you have killed them like 1000 ways, let me tell you, q-tip cleaning seems appealing.--the always witty Michele Jaffe, in a fantastic mini-interview

Editorial Anonymous on Where's My Book?

Tess Gerritsen (whose blog, I'm happy to say, is back in business again) has written a great column about firing your agent over at Murderati

Also! I've been awarded the Brillante Weblog award by Debbi Michiko Florence, who is clearly FAR too kind.

Anyway, I'm supposed to pick seven journals I like to read and let them know that they've won the award but you all know me, and I can't pick seven journals! It's like whenever I'm asked to list my top ten books, a question that inevitably sends me into a state of panic as 'Ten? How can I pick only ten?' So if you have a blog, and would like to have the Brillante Weblog award (it does sound quite spiffy, doesn't it?), then I say consider yourself a winner!

That was an awesome mindset list! I also caught 'The Royal New Zealand Navy has never been permitted a daily ration of rum.' Lol, if you've ever been to NZ you'll know that if there is any mention of NZ (no matter how small!) all kiwis are honor-bound to make a huge deal about it! =)
I also saw this today and made a big deal about it: http://maximumride.blogspot.com/2008/08/new-zealand-fist-pump-cuts-off-your.html
My fave is the 2nd one!

Yay! And congrats again on the Brillante Weblog award! You deserve it! =D Thanks for the cool links and I hope you have an awesome day! =D

The mindset lists are great reading, aren't they? I got such a kick out of them.

Courtney! I hope you're doing well, and it'll be great to see you this fall :-)
