Off to NYC Once More

This time for interviews and business meetings. No public events, sorry. But if you see me walking about randomly, you know, because it’s so easy to spot individuals on New York’s uncrowded streets, be sure to say hello.
I may pop in here later today if I get a moment. This may involve me writing in a coffee shop. Yes, I know. Try not to point and laugh at me.
You’re not fooling anyone, you know?
If someone gets a picture of you writing in the coffee shop, I hope you post it. Because of pictures – thousand words, and irony.
Great – I have to be in NYC today so now I have to spend my free time wandering around coffee shops like a stalker!
I remember in an SF book that I read years ago that a couple wondered: If you had to meet someone in New York City, but could not specify more closely than that where that would be, where would they meet?
Where do you suppose John could be found? Coney Island? The Empire State Building?
I’m sure no one will point and laugh. Who around here would do something like that? At most we would gesture and snicker.
In answer to JReynolds: I would go for the main concourse at Grand Central Terminal. Well known, a transportation nexus, and a large open space in which to find someone.
DG Lewis: More specifically, near the info desk/clock. Though it would be kind of cool if someone said, “Directly under Orion.”
You’re not fooling anyo–DRAT. Bryan Broyles beat me to it.
@Anne Bingham: Sure, I’m not only first comment, but, you know, meta, and of course, there’s no prize. Where’s my signed copy of his wedding photo? The unpublished script for the film reboot of “Star Crashers?”
I did bump into Stan Schmidt on Park Avenue once, so apparently that is where to go to see people you know. He said it was the first time he had ever bumped into someone he knew on the street in all the time he’s lived and worked there.
Now back to NY? I realize that scheduling a book tour must be a complicated business, but now I almost wonder if PNH has a bet with Satan.
Catch the upcoming Tor title: Scalzi: A Comedy of Jet Lag
Probably in one of the upscale cupcake shoppes.
Take a picture of yourself in front of the Flatiron building! 23 skidoo.
Should have read the tweets. He left PNH’s office five hours ago.
( I wanted you to hear what I have to say on a previous article that is now making the rounds)
Your article on the Privileged Single White Male(or my take/take your white ass to Africa and live there and bitch about it instead of staying here and sinfully enjoying the fruits of others labor)
Im the white trash that doesn’t get any benefit of the doubt and the butt of your jokes.
Don’t F’N include me in your list of well to doers.
You mention that cr@p in front of me and Ill show you how repressed
people react to Fake White people calling the rest of there race out so
you can pretend your better.
Nothing worse then a Weak White Male pretending his uncle tom behavior is proof to blacks that he is Down with em.
I’m sure I have had more black friends in my lifetime then you my Fool.
I’ve lived in the Projects. Ive worked for Mexicans and I’ve listened to enough of people like you to last a 1000 life times.
And I don’t need your whiny a$- $ saying ‘Oh you looked at my video game chart wrong” Screw your damn Video Game Chart.
If you had half a brain you would know even slavery was more about class
then race. As blacks and whites were slaves in Mexico but it became
easier and cheaper to just have slaves from certain parts of Africa.
Just because you can afford your holier then though attitude. I spit on it myself.
Your First Book was really Good, The next OMW S’ =ucked from flatulence.
I was thinking about Red shirts. but I’m not going to put food in the
mouth of a Uncle Tom Finger Pointing I’m better then the majority Whiny
A=$$ who is comparing us to Video Games.
Game Over Dude, Game Over!
Hey Midas, you might want to read this: http://whatever.scalzi.com/2012/05/23/final-notes-for-lowest-difficulty-setting/
You’ve selected the absolute least relevant post Mr. Scalzi has made to comment. I leave the actual problems (factual and logical) to others.
Actually, I’d suggest Midas check out this one.
