A hurried update

So all the powers of creation have conspired to keep me from attending ComicCon. Last night I got an automated call from Delta telling me, “Hello, your flight is canceled. Yeah. Would you like a later flight? Oh, and by the way would you like a Skymiles Credit Card?”

Then a storm hit Stevens Point like the wrath of an angry god, knocking out all the power in central Wisconsin.

So I used my computer’s battery backup to charge my cell phone. Then I called Delta and cursed them unto their seventh generation. I told them that no, I don’t want their fucking credit card, and when I book a flight for 7:00 in the morning on a particular day, I have certain expectations from them. I expect, for example, a plane to be present. To fucking fly me where I’ve paid money to go. And no, goddammit, I really don’t want a credit card. I want a brick that I will throw through your window late at night.

Then I called my assistant and she graciously agreed to drive me to Minneapolis so I could catch my 9:30 connecting flight. It wasn’t that bad, we only had to start driving at around 3:30 in the morning….

So I packed my bags by candle light, the storm howling angrily outside. I’m not even kidding. It was a real adventure. High drama. Carmina Burana was playing in the background.

Anyway, the result was that I didn’t get to write the blog I really wanted to last night. The blog where I made the big announcement that Badali Jewlery has made some jewelry based on my books.

Specifically, they’ve made talent pipes. And they are awesome.

Seriously.

Unfortunately, I’m writing up this blog on a decrepit hotel computer. I don’t have any of my pictures available to me. I can’t cut and paste. The Control keys don’t seem to work. So all I can do is beg you to click the above link and bask in the glory of the excellent work they’ve done.

They’re also having a sale at comic-con tonight, so if you stop by their booth here at Comic Con on preview night (tonight), you can buy a pair for 30% off….

I’m sorry. I wish I could do this with the fanfare it deserves, but I’m kinda tech-neutered right now.

Lastly, I’d like to point y’all in the direction of Wootstock. They’re doing a show in San Diego this Thursday night. Google it up. It’s going to be a fun time.

I also heard a rumor that this show might have something extra in it…. (he said mysteriously.)

That’s all for now, folks.
