Some of the things I am working on that you shall soon see:
Problogger group writing project:
This will be my first time submitting. Eek! The topic is "How-to's" and my post is titled Bookkeeping for Bloggers. I thought, gosh I don't enjoy writing about taxes because it feels so much like work but I can whip out a little ditty on bookkeeping. That's no big deal, right? (...) Yes, I am an idiot. But I'm going to finish it, dammit. And you're going to read it and not say out loud, "All that agony over this?" Or...Or...Or no ice cream before bedtime!
Don't Kiss Them Good-Bye, by Allison DuBois. Yes, the real woman the TV show Medium is based on. Why should you care about her silly old book? Well...WELL, apparently there is some controversy a-brewin'. Actually, it probably a-brewed a few years ago since the book came out in 2004 but I am just finding out about it now. Ms. DuBois tells a story about a dear childhood friend, Domini, she got back in touch with shortly before she died of cancer. It was a touching story and includes some details that it turns out Domini's sisters say Never. Happened. I just read about this on a forum so have a bit more reading to do. But YOU, gentle Internet, will be the first to hear all the good gossip as soon as I dig it up.
I am also reading The Truth About Medium, by Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D. (the guy who used Allison DuBois as a "research medium") and it's really pissing me off. More to follow.
