And I don’t think any amount of blogging is going to make it go away. Oh well. I’m having a downer of a day, so I think I need to post some positives:
- All my Christmas shopping is done
- I almost have the family newsletter finished
- The ice is melting from my driveway
- I get to go home in 40 minutes
- I have no meetings on tonight
- My sound system is now fully operational
Probably the highlight of my day came this morning, when my good friend Becky "Rebecca" Garabed sent me her comments on ParkerBoy. A lot of my readers have noted that I reference a lot of pop culture in my books. Some like it, some don’t. Some say that the pop culture I use is too dated (then miss all the current pop references because they go right over their heads.) So I take all those comments with a few grains of salt. But Becky–she went above and beyond the call of duty, going through the entire book and documenting every single pop culture reference, then putting in when that pop culture reference first appeared in pop culture. From Rambo to Perry Mason to Star Wars to Lord of the Rings–she got ’em all. I felt like my pop culture personality was laid bare–way cool. Thanks, Becky!
