ozarque figure

Personal note; I'm still here...

In unseemly haste....

I'm still here, and have been very surprised and intrigued by the variety of reactions to the review of Twilight that I recommended, which seems to me to be linked in some way to the discussions of feminism and eldering and caregiving that we've been having recently.

But I haven't had a free minute to do any posting, because I've been copyediting yet another set of galleys for the new edition of The Gentle Art of Verbal Self-Defense. I've finished with that, and have just sent off the lists of changes to my editor in New York, and -- because we're under tornado watch at the moment, with a line of humungous thunderstorms bearing down on us -- I've backed up everything I've done this morning to my external hard drive so I won't lose it.

Back soon....
