I am still alive. Can you believe it? HA!
Okay, so I am about done with Los Angeles. Time for a change for me. I have been playing with the idea of San Francisco in my head. The other spot would be Delaware. Yes, that's right, my roots.
We will see what the future holds. I have no idea.
It looks like Jim will be in Brazil or Florida. If I get my citizenship on the 28th, I might just putz around some foreign countries for a while. Who knows?
I might just get a dog and walk across America. Ha!
I really have no idea.
Maybe, New York City is the next logical choice.
We will see what happens.
In other news, I am still searching for a possible agent. No idea who I will find. I have 2 big books from Amazon to research.
I have half the mind to find a cool independent publisher and just pitch it myself, which is something I might very well do. We'll see if I find a publisher that is a good match for "The Whopper Strategies."
If anyone has ideas of a hip, indie publishers or knows of an insider, please email me some contact info. (the benefecator will definitely have some huge stakes in my Favor Bank.)
I am writing the strangest things.
Pat Morita walled himself in a hotel room and drank himself to death in 6 months.
I am now reading The Zahir. I will be done tomorrow. Good book.
I cannot stop humming The Godfather theme song.
Funny thing is that the moment that I stopped and took a walk up Lankershim, I ran headfirst into the soundwaves of The Godfathertheme pouring from a little trailer selling Italian fast food.
"I feel like I'm going to get shot," my walking partner said.
"Hmmm," I say. "Just when I thought I was out."
"What?" WP asks.
"Nothing," I say. "Hey, listen to that! They switched over to NY, NY. It's definitely a mobster ice cream truck."
"No," WP says. "It's just Gazeno's...the Italian trailer."
Man, Hollywood is weird.
Now I am eating a salad with imitation crab meat. The girls in the cubicle next to me keep asking if I am eating my salad. I ask them why they are mothering me. They giggle and stuff their faces.
I am about to join them.
