Thanks for playing, nyc/caribbean. Your jobs sound soooo interesting. And ditto on the Britney "news". I'd add Paris, Nicole and Lindsay to the media blackout list.

What's with these balconies in St. Martin? Seems I've been missing someth'n...

Gibber, re the Bush phrase: we would all be so lucky... how long is it till elections anyway?

Great list! BTW... I'm agent shopping right now and saw you post on some blog I was reading that had an interview with a YA author (and, of course, I've forgotten which one). Is your novel YA? If so, there's a great yahoo group called teenlitauthors. You might find it interesting - there are a lot of very generous, supportive folks on the list and most have been through the whole publishing/marketing/etc., process.

gibber - lol, your four phrases are priceless.

wordtryst - re: the elections...not soon enough

jen- no it's not YA. Maybe it was Alisa Valdes -Rodriguez's blog? Good luck with the agent search. I will start that process later this fall. My novel is commerical fiction.

I love the part about Britney. I've done this meme in a similar form before or else I'd tag myself, I swear ;)
