Uh-oh. I Feel An Obsession Coming On

I'm afraid I'm becoming obsessed with all things Meg Cabot just as I'm obsessed with Jane Yolen's Journal. It's not as if I'm a major fan of these writers. I've never read anything by Cabot, and I haven't read anything by Yolen since my children were small. (We will not get into how long that's been.) It's the personas these women project on-line that I find so...riveting.

Jane just suffered through another case of food poisoning while at a writers' conference. She has absolutely horrifying experiences alone in motel bathrooms. On the other hand, though, when she's healthy she spends a great deal of time shopping and going out to eat. You have to admire her guts. If I'd been as sick as she's been after eating in restaurants, I don't think I'd let anyone else cook for me.

Meg Cabot is extremely photogenic. I chose this picture because I have one of myself in blue jeans speaking before a group (of 10 people, 6 of whom I was related to) over Memorial Day Weekend. When I left the house that morning, I thought I was going to look like Meg does in this picture. Then in this vidlit promotional thingie (thank you bookshelves of doom) we learn that on a typical day, she wakes up to over 2,000 unread e-mails, most of them about one of her books. On a typical day, I wake up to 5 unread e-mails. They are all offers to sell me sexual dysfunction products or watches. (Watches?)

Jane and I both read Ruth Rendell novels. Meg and I both watch House Hunters.

I feel as if the three of us are forming a little on-line writers' community. In my head.

This game is very interesting and as long as you know the Scions Of Fate gold you will love it and you will go to play this game every day. Instead in this game you will not complain it and you will only want to earn the SOF gold to make yourself become strong. sometimes you can also go to earn the Scions Of Fate money with your friends, because if you play the game with your friends you can be strong more easily. I know every player wants to get more and more cheap SOF gold to become strong. So you can buy sof gold and then you can equipment yourself with the weapons.
