Between signings and panels and seeing real live friends. Please amuse yourselves until tomorrow. I thank you in advance for your cooperation.
That, or the two pounds of frosting you got at the signing. Would work for me.
What’s it with you and strange animals like badgers and squirrels?
If your next blog-entry does not contain a video of you literally running about like a crazed squirrel, I will be disappointed!
Wait! The squirrels got to you?!? Noooooooo! It’s all part of their master plan, first take our nuts, then our authors! The end is nigh!
Wait a minute! Those aren’t squirrels! Those are gophers!
Actually, you’ve been doing a fairly good job of amusing me today.

“Running about like a crazed squirrel weasel.”
That’s how you are. Your blog followers make you rich and famous, and then you run around with questionable rodent company instead. Oh well. Keep us plied with books and we will forgive you.
It’s a good thing you like what you do. I think you must travel even more than I did when I was building my business. Flying sucked then and hasn’t improved in the two years since. God speed…or at least squirrel speed.
Little-known fact: a crazed squirrel cranked up on Red Bull can stop time.
Not to confused with SQUIRAL: The idea is to enter three numbers which will cause rectangles to be drawn on the screen in a spiraling pattern determined by three numbers:
* an angle through which the rectangle will be rotated each time a new one is drawn.
* a decimal percentage stating how much the rectangle size should be decremented each time through. This must be a percentage between 0.0 and 1.0.
* an integer specifying how many rectangles to draw.
Which is not to be confused with Urban Dictionary: squiral
“the act of fondeling your own or onther persons testicles whilst swimming.”

It’s true what they say, you really do learn something new every day. Some days you which you hadn’t.
Now I will have Ray Stevens’ Mississippi Squirrel Revival song stuck on my mind all day! ;-)
Like a crazer squirrel???? what does that mean>
