    No more bad jokes from me, I'm outta here again.

    Merry Christmas to all that aren't offended by being told such.

    Therein lies the problem. I don't think the majority here care for my warped interpretation of humor. They would rather beat to death the issue as to whether the Camaro's gas flap should have been moved to the left side for US consumers. I may be getting old, but am still flexible enough to adapt to that and fill the car on whatever side the opening happens to be on. Maybe I'm just special though.

    I've got 81,000 words done on the first draft of my book and hope to be done by year's end at around 95 to 100,000. At that point I may be able to come back to GMI, although I will then push to try to get it published. If I succeed in publishing it I plan on putting all the Loser stuff together, expanding it, and doing another book.

    Happy Chinese New Year,
    Tim
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    Thank you. Even if it's a total bust it's been an interesting experience.

    I'm hesitant to mention that timys writing a book too. He claims it's about a group of perpetually pubescent British adolescents who attend witch school in a massive, very impressive, (though hidden) castle. He says they will ride flying brooms around and point magic sticks at each other (he calls them wands) while uttering semi intelligible secret phrases. I told him he was a complete idiot to ever think anyone would buy into such a ridiculous premise, but timy is persistent, if nothing else, and is thus following through.

    He even has a tentative title for his atrocity. Harry Pottied in his Magic Pants. What's up with that?

    I smell something. Something a bit sour, sort of like ammonia...
