Kodi the Dog Ponders the True Meaning of Easter

“Maybe Easter wasn’t about chocolate bunnies at all! Maybe Easter was about something a little bit… more.”

She’s a deep one, that Kodi. She’s a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in fur. Lots of fur.

And with that, I’m off until Monday. Enjoy your Easter weekend, if you are of the sort to enjoy Eastery things at all. If you absolutely can’t live without me in your life, I’ll probably Twitter a bit (here, or you can find the tweet on the sidebar). Otherwise, see you next week.

Obligatory E-mail Notice, 4/10/09, Plus Additional Mail Reminders

Okay, I’m pretty sure I’ve caught up with all the e-mail I need to respond to from the last week. However, if you sent me e-mail and were hoping for a response and didn’t get one, feel free to resend. Sometimes stuff slips through the cracks.

That said, I do want to remind people that there’s a fair amount of e-mail I get that I might not respond to, either right away or at all, not because I’m trying to be rude but just because I get lots of mail and I have to prioritize. Stuff I’m likely not to immediately respond to (or will possibly not respond to at all) include quick little comments about something on Whatever, link solicitations/pointers and press releases. I’m not ignoring them (and I do like getting link suggestions, etc) — I read everything in my inbox that’s not spam. And I do consider all the link pleas/suggestions I get. I just, you know, get lots. I hope you understand.

I do of course try to respond to all fan mail/convention invites/interview requests, etc, even if briefly. But occassionally they will slip through the cracks and/or I’ll look at them, plan to respond later and then totally forget. As always, if you’ve sent something for which you’ve hoped for a response, after about a week, feel free to resend.

Final note: my e-mail address here (i.e., john@scalzi.com) is really the best way to reach me. I occasionally look at my mailboxes on Facebook/Myspace/Goodreads, etc, but not with any regularity. My scalzi.com mailbox, on the other hand, I check obsessively. Just saying.

Thanks.
