Hey! At least it's not another boat!

1-08-06- Hey! At least it’s not another boat! I’m not getting out much to take pictures lately. I’ve just never been into taking pictures of puddles. I know a lot of people are into them (read: desperate to fill space), but I have my trivia to fall back on (see below) so who needs it?! I have a lot of neat people shots, my real love, but you just can’t publish photos of private individuals walking down a city street in Army fatigues and pink curlers in their hair—they might get ticked. That’s why I stick to subects that don’t move—or hit.
Publishers-The email with a clipping from The New York Times that’s currently circulating among writers is causing a lot of discussion. The article, printed on January 4, 2006 is titled Rejected by the Publishers and lists famous books that were rejected by agents and publishers and concludes, “People don’t seem to know what a good novel is nowadays.” As a writer who has been often rejected, I don’t think it’s fair for me to comment…just ignore the smirks and cackles…they're coming from my cat. Wait...I don't have a cat...
Trivia- Scientists have determined that the common housefly hums in the musical key of F.
