I’m Alive

I’m just away from the computer today. Don’t worry, I didn’t fall down a well or anything. Carry on.

  1. No Romeo, we wouldn’t. Well, maybe if he had tuna. But we’d likely have him toss it up first, and then leave him down there anyway. I’m sure Kodi would get help though, he’s such a softy when it comes to things the lady likes. Even if one of those things is the Tormentor.

  2. Imposter “Ghlaghghee” @ 2, you have proven your blasphemous nature for all to see.

    Anteater-Thing is not a he, but a she – which you would have known if you were truly Magnificent She.

    Depart now and hope that She decides not to smite you.

  3. Psst. Scalzi’s gone. Does anyone have a troll we can play with?

  4. Meh. He, she — Dogs all look the same to me. But you’re right, that face is messed up. I try not to look right at it.

  5. Funniest thing I heard today was snarky comments on NPR about the fact that Vlad Putin just sold his first original professional painting. Supposed to show through a frosty window to snowy fields in Ukraine.

    (1) if you look very closely, you can see Russian troops massed on the border;

    (2) and Sarah Palin’s house.

  6. Geeze 3D virtual sex games are weird. They already have freaky interactivity with plug in adult toys. What the frac Scalzi? How can this be?

  7. If you DO fall down a well, let us know so we can lower you down a BlackBerry.

  8. Scalzi’s not in a well? He must have sensed the trap. Alright who didn’t camouflage it properly?

  9. Well, if you HAD fallen down the well, I’d expect Sameer would help push you out. Or he’d trample over your shoulders in return for the two years.

    Or maybe that’s why you keep Sameer in the well. On the off chance that you’ll fall in. Man, I hope you feed him well.

  10. I never, ever want to be so connected I must post an AFK All Day note on my blog. OTOH, I never want to be so disconnected that my cat eats my face before someone comes to check on me. Its a delicate balance to walk.

  11. Sting: There’s a hole in my heart
    As deep as a well
    For that poor John Scalzi,
    Who’s stuck halfway to Hell…

    Sideshow Mel: Though we can’t get him out,
    We’ll do the next best thing…

    McBain: We go on TV
    And sing, sing, sing!

    All: And we’re sending our love down the well…

    Krusty: All the way down!

    All: We’re sending our love down the well…

    Krusty: Down that well!

  12. If you analyze this message, you will see that it was typed by bears.

    OMG! John has been eaten by bears!

  13. Didja see his Twitter – he has Cory Doctorow’s new book as a manuscript! And he’s reading it down the well!

  14. Not down a well.

    *clicks pen a few times*

    Damn. I knew I shouldn’t have gone for the budget assasins. That poor bastard Scalvi’s probably scrabbling bloody fingertips against brickwork as I speak.

  15. Now THAT’s what someone who fell down a well would say! ::suspicious glare::

  16. Someday, you’ll realize that the people who need to know that you’re alive already know it without reading your blog, and that the rest of us don’t need to be reassurred…

  17. See, technology is great! Even from the bottom of a well, bloggers can post from a Blackberry and no-one’s the wiser.

    Oh, wait…

  18. You know, if I killed a famous author and was trying to cover it up, a message like this to his blog would be my very first step.

    Just sayin’.

  19. I’ve been away for a few days and nobody asked if I had fallen down a well…

    Glad I’m not a teenager any more, I would have dialed this up to eleven in a heart beat even though it has nothing whatsoever to do with me. (not a dig at teenagers, just left over from the previous post)

    Hope @ 4

    No one’s volunteered and I seem to be out of troll bait. I’m not feeling very controversial or edgy today. Light snow drifting past my window, good coffee and no place I have to go. Life is good.

  20. I just saw Tommy Rettig last night in The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T. Try watching it with someone who has no idea it’s a live action Dr. Seuss movie, and see how long it takes them to recognize the visual style.

    Here’s the trailer but there’s a lot more on YouTube, including some videos from a techno band named after the movie.

  22. Thanks evilj
    I feel better.
    I’m dialing back down to my usual 3.5 mellow as it goes level.
