Things & Stuff
Up Up And Away

Quiet weekend for me, not so much for the rest of the world.
Unless you've had all your media turned off, you know who Falcon Heene is.
Reports are coming in that the whole "balloon boy" stunt was concocted MONTHS ago. Discussions are now being held as to whether or not the parents will be hit with felony charges and/or the bill for the search, which could be up to $500,000.
My question: When Falcon said the "you said we did this for a show" to Wolf Blitzer, Blitzer asked his dad Richard to clarify the boy's comment. Richard Heene bobbed and weaved and dodged and wouldn't answer. Why didn't Blitzer follow up and press the dad for an answer?
Speaking of "balloon boy": Here's today's New Adventures of Queen Victoria.
Now THAT is fast work.
The Angels lost the first two games of the ALCS. They now come home to play today. If they win one, I might get to see some on Thursday.
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! TWO new Pibgorn volumes announced today!
Well, last week...but STILL.
I dropped them an e-mail - the new volumes are at the printers and are scheduled to be available mid-November.
Now, if artist Brooke McEldowney can just get a deal going for publishing 9 Chickweed Lane...
The package I sent to Australia cleared customs on Friday.
Right this second, Laila is in one window (on top of the secured-in-the-window-with-Velcro fan) and Solange is on the window perch.
All is right here at Chez Too Old. So far.
Got a spam e-mail with the following title: "You're one-way ticket to ecstasyland!"
I already have one - it's called "sleep".
Okay. A little more house cleaning in preparation for Brin's visit, and some shopping tonight.
Be seeing you.
