SHEWOREARASPBERRYBERET


i haven't been posting as much lately because i've been SWAMPED. here's a short laundry list: wrapping up school work at LMU . . . redesigning the school paper . . . moving classrooms . . . applying for sophomore course lead . . . dealing with personal drama . . . blah, blah, blah.

but i do want to take a moment to formally congratulate my dear friend, jz, on finishing his book!!! OMG! it's been about ten years in the making and now it's done!

MAZEL TOV, DARLING!

i'll be the annoying latina wearing the "i love jz (not the rapper)" t-shirts at all of your book signings . . .

congratulations!!!

Congratulations to your friend! That's cool. Care to advertise what book it is? You should ask him...

Thank you for the kind words. It is pleasant to discover, after a long day of piloting an 18 wheeler across I20 in Texas, that my thoughts have connected with someone that I have not met. I hope that you may wish to share my blog-circulation now in the screaming double digits!-with others who may be interested. I apologize for using this unorthodox method of communication, but am pleased that the body of work you found has made a positive impact. Felicidades, green lights and bypasses. Gil Gillon a/k/a The Wandering Gentile.

PS, I am of Welsh descent!

francis, i'll be sure to twist jz's ear next time i am in close proximity to it. for now, i will leave it up to him to say if and when i may divulge further details . . . though, thanks so much for the warm thoughts!

gil, well, cymru am byth and croeso and all that jazz!

i did enjoy your space and hope you find more time to write. i've added your blog to my little list, though i doubt i'll be able to boost your blog circulation much since most of the visits to my site are my own . . . or from people whom i pay (poorly).

hmm, gil, the name of one of my favorite characters in literature . . .

happy trails!
