Room With a View; Reading Reminder & Request

First, the view out my hotel window:

It doesn’t suck.

Second, yet another reminder to folks that the fantabulous Mary Robinette Kowal and I will be at Borderlands Books tomorrow at 7pm for an evening we’re calling “John & Mary Show You Their Shorts.” We’re reading mostly humorous short fiction we’ve written, although the way we’re planning to do it, it’ll be as much performance as reading — and, to reward the folks who actually do show up, we’re doing something very cool and original and special. How cool? How original? How special. So cool and original and special that I’m not going to tell you what it is here. You’re just going to have to show up to find out. But I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. We’re going to have fun, people. You know you want in on this.

Also: hey, could someone bring, like, a mike and a computer or something? We kind of want to have a record of this, and we both stupidly left our podcast-quality apparatus at home. Thanks.

Anyway: Tell me you’re going to be there. It won’t be the same without you, man.

I enjoy pie.

Nice. I just missed you when I was at MacWorld. I had a blast in SF. Dinner at Bong Su, Chez Papa, and Town Hall were great – recommended.

Speaking of Macs, for recording, you can always use MS Word for Mac’s Notebook Layout View and Tools->Export Audio.

Let’s see its -35 outside in Wisconsin, I’m a quadripaligic bed-bound shut-in… what are the odds of getting to SF by 7pm tomorrow to see Scalzi do something cool? Hmmm. Well thanks for the invite. Beam me up! (grin)

I could tell you I’ll be there, but it would be a lie. And that would be a bad thing. San Fransisco is just too far to go for a one-night-stand in a bookstore, as great as it sounds. :-(

I have visions of you and MRK in an Angus Young moment (see 1:27) – which would truly be unforgettable – heavens, it’s seared into my brain already. Wish I could be there, because now I’m really curious what’s going to happen.

(I paraphrase Enzo in ZT, “…a melodramatic reading, with arm-waving.’)

Have fun!

It was a BLAST. They didn’t let me sue anybody, and I still had a great time. Scalzi is even funnier in person, and it’s a good thing Ms. Kowal was there to outfunny him so he didn’t get a swelled head.

I will never look at tortillas or salsa the same way again.
