Fun with Janet Evanovich

Seasons change, and the Cubs' season is over. I shall spend no more words on their ignominious fall.

To cheer me up, though, Jess Lourey is interviewing Janet Evanovich on Inkspot today. Both Jess and Janet have the power to lift my spirits with their humor, and I know this will be a fun one to read.

Until then, speaking of seasons, this is a particularly busy one at work, so heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it's back to work I go. :)

This is a very special view on autumn. I like the shades very much. Very nice picture. I now see that you are working on your masters. That's not nothing considering that you are a mother, teacher and writer. I wish you all the best with that and perhaps autumn and winter will inspire you!!

Many greetings from Caro

Thanks, Caro. It's a picture taken in the alley behind our house. I like it, too--the fossilized leaf patterns say something to me about permanence versus transience.

Yes, the degree is a very time-consuming thing, but rewarding. :)

Sorry about your Cubs. They would have been the darlings of the world. Even sorrier about my Phillies. They might actually win this thing.

Thanks, Peter. I am still collecting condolences. :)

Isn't it a good thing if the Phillies win?

It's a wonderful thing if the Phillies win. It's not so wonderful that this will mean endless shots on TV of screaming college-age drunks in bars and endless newspaper stories about those same fans and yahoos ignorant of baseball pounding the sides of the bus on Broad Street as I ride home from work. If I lived and worked well outside the city, I might be rooting wholeheartedly for them.

Ah, yes. The madding crowd.

Mayor Daley wanted a "no booze after 7th inning rule" and there were many complaints. I'd prefer there be no booze at all--fans can be crazy enough without the complications of alcohol.
