After yesterday's post about the book writing, many of you sent me such helpful information regarding finding a literary agent and publisher. THANK YOU. You Strangers are the wind beneath my wings. I just asked Bette Midler if she was free to give you an individual performance as a thank you and she said that she totally is and will be dressed in clothes from the '80s and waiting for you on Youtube.

Several of you emailed asking what the book is about. Basically it's the story of a young boy who gets a letter inviting him to go to a school for witches and wizards and it follows his seven year progression in which he has to fight off dark magic and stay out of trouble with a couple of close friends.

I kid. A book like that would never sell.

I'll do a fuller post on it soon when I have the stamina to write it out. For now just rest assured: if you like Stranger, you should really like this.

And now, your pictures and distractions:

My worlds are colliding.
I googled myself to see if I should be worried about my online presence. I am SO proud of the third thing down on the list.
And then I decided to google "Snuggie." Stranger makes its mark with the first option after "snuggie." Also, don't look up "snuggie sutra."
Watching the sunset from the beach.

Just after sunset.

We are finally getting locally grown bananas in Palau again after December's typhoon destroyed all of the banana trees! Also, I think I may be too close to Chernobyl because WHAT THE CRAP is going on with the "two" bananas are the far left?

Crap to distract you from whatever you're supposed to be doing:

Crazy cat leggings. Why is this a thing? Thanks, Rachel.

Unfortunate mug shot t-shirts. Thanks, Ann.

If you haven't checked out cakewrecks yet, here it is. Thanks, Britni.

Many of you have sent me this link this week, encouraging me to embrace Leotrix in my life. No.

Why not have a few more cat pictures to distract you from work? Thanks, Kayla.

Great wrong number texting from The Bloggess. We LOVE the Bloggess! And not just because she cited Stranger once and brought many of you here. So let's send her some love back!
