I’m So Happy

Sigh. If you haven’t seen The Dark Knight yet, stop reading this post and go see it NOW. Preferably in IMAX.

And that Watchmen trailer beforehand… My God. I was squirming in my seat with excitement.

Why are you still here? Go! GO!

Smart-ass Reporter Pwned by Geeks

Ah, sometimes — just sometimes — the world (or at least YouTube) sends you warm fuzzies, in the form of a smart-ass “reporter” being pwned by a geek standing in line to buy an iPhone.

As a geek of many years’ standing, I felt I had to share this with the world. If these people had been standing in line for Hannah Montana tickets or football tickets, no one would think to make fun of them.


OK, gang. I usually refrain from bragging here. But when I was at the ALA (American Library Association) Annual conference a couple of weeks ago, a librarian ran up to me after a panel and thrust a couple of sheets of paper into my hands.

Turns out the sheets were notes from two of her teenaged patrons, expressing how much they like my writing. The notes were so touching and so honest and so FUNNY that I just had to share them with the world.

Both ladies are sixteen and from Ridgefield, Conn. Click on the thumbnails to see the notes. Be warned: Big files!
