Fortunes, a Book Signing, a Link

I'm not sure why, but I somehow got in the habit of saving the messages from fortune cookies. I keep them in my sunglasses' case, which isn't particularly handy. I have to be careful when getting out my sunglasses (which is often because a) I live in San Diego and b) the sunglasses are prescription) so that the fortunes don't fall out or blow away. I do have a history with fortunte cookies, although I can't stand the taste of them, but am only interested in the bits of paper found inside.

Here's a fortune I handpicked for you today! Enjoy!

If you're anywhere near San Diego, please consider stopping by the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore, 7051 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, San Diego 92111, tel: 858-268-4747. It's the store's 18th birthday so they'll be serving cake and hosting several spotlight authors. I'm on at 11:00 am. Here's a link detailing the event, including a list of all the spotlight authors. This bookstore is more than worth a visit. The employees are super well read and friendly. The store specializes in, well, everything, but especially mysteries, sci fi, and fantasy. As an added bonus, there's a really good game store almost next door, Game Empire.

Last, but certainly not least, if you've got a sec, hop on over to David Cranmer's The Education of a Pulp Writer blog where the delightful Denise has posted about Sherry and I So Don't Do Famous.

And, now, I'm logging off to return to writing. I hit a decent stride yesterday and am hoping to return to it this morning. Happy Weekend to all!

Thanks for the most excellent fortune, Barrie. I think it gives me the nudge I need to eat only ice cream for lunch ;-).

Good luck with your writing.

For some reason, I think it's hilarious that you collect your fortunes in your sunglasses case. What a great detail to give one of your characters! I love it! I actually love the taste of fortune cookies and try to save my fortunes, too, but I always seem to lose them, except for a few I put in one of my shadow boxes. Maybe I should start storing them in my glasses case, too!

That sounds like a really cool bookstore. Next time I'm in San Diego, I'll try to check it out. I hope you had a great time there today.
