Money, Money, Money, Always Sunny

I just wrote my first check to Sante D'Or from the proceeds of PET SOUNDS. This is awfully exciting and yet makes me long to write larger checks; I'm like that. So I am going to do something insane and possibly foolhardy, but unlike the last time I did something which could accurately be described that way it won't involve a knife, a slice of whole wheat and a red-hot toaster. (After the initial unpleasantness, it worked beautifully.) Here's the offer; if you buy PET SOUNDS and don't love it, I'll buy it back. I think you'll love it. I hope you'll love it. And I'm prepared to put my Paypal account where my mouth is. Now, it's time to see what the radio sounds like in a full bathtub.

Props to you (as usual) for "making the ask." In my former career as a non-profit whore *cough, cough*, I mean development associate, we referred to asking for people to support our cause as "making the ask." It made me want to stab a fork into my hand each time I had to do that, and over time I started calling it "making the ass." So I feel your pain! Still...GURL, you know errybuddy is going to enjoy that book. I want to make a ridiculous counter offer and say that if anyone gives you a book back, I will buy that book from you. Once you buy it back from them....and so on...ad nauseum... :) Seriously, though? Sante D'or is very blessed to have you in their corner. I use the word "bless" sparingly, I only use it when it doesn't seem appropriate to use the word "luck." The chapter on the dog you fostered, then later adopted in "Notes from the Underwire" made me cry the ugly cry. And your writing makes me cry in only the best way - I feel better and stronger afterwards.

Quinn - I'll have to look for your new book. I wanted to let you know that I reviewed your book, The Year of Living Dangerously, on my blog.

I'm just about to start my second year of homeschooling my son, who is starting 9th grade. He has become so much more relaxed over the past year while being homeschooled. Probably the biggest challenge has been me learning how to be a teacher. I was once a college professor so thought that I was a good teacher, but I have learned a LOT about myself and I think this has spilled over into my relationship with my son and I think we are the better for it. (Although I have certainly experienced intense growing pains through the process).

Thanks for your book!

I just finished reading Pet Sounds and loved it! I laughed, I cried and I enjoyed every single page! Your kittens stories sound like a page out of our life! A year ago we adopted two kittens who were born in the wild, their momma abandoned them and we brought them home at 8 weeks old. They were so scared, but once they got over the shock of the car ride and the new environment, they grew into crazy kittens... They are now crazy adolescents. We love them and couldn't imagine our lives without them.... Their names are McKitters and Bubba...

Completely off topic, but did you see this? I missed it when it was first published.
