Hi guys. I know I've tortuously teased you with supposed "news" that will seem somewhat big and exciting. Well, the truth is, my news is as follows: I bought a new car that actually has a plug in for my iPod!
Okay, that's true, but it's not the news. And unfortunately, I can't spill the beans yet. Why, you may ask? Because besides other things like being a genius, hard worker, and total stud, my agent is also a tyrant, and I do whatever he says. So there. Hopefully I can tell you on Monday.
Meanwhile, I'd like to share an experience I had this morning. I was jogging, and thinking really hard about a certain book I'm working on, and I had 2 epiphanies! That's right, 2. A certain plot point and the ending will vastly improve now, and it was quite the experience. My eyes actually teared up I was so happy.
Why did I tell you that? Answer: Just in case you were starting to doubt that authors are psycho. We are, and the sooner you accept it, the better.
Random thought: I think my current favorite band is Coldplay. I've been listening to their new album, and I love it. Especially after listening to it 3 or 4 times. The songs really grow on you and now I can't wait to listen to them again on the way home today. You should definitely check it out.
Another random thought: Georgia lost the college world series after winning the first game against Fresno State. Who cares, bring on football.
Yet another random thought: I hate hot weather. I'm a winter sorta guy. Which makes things like July and Global Warming not my favorite.
One last random thought: I overcooked the steaks last night. I'm a loser.
Okay, I think I'm done here. Until I can talk about what I'm not allowed to talk about, you're gonna get lame blog posts like this one. Maybe next time I'll describe the top ten sitting positions in which I like to read a book.
By the way, I was just kidding when I called you a tyrant, Michael. Sir.
