If you haven’t seen this yet, you really probably should.  It’s a singer on Britain’s Got Talent, but please see it anyway.

She’s my newest hero.

I feel sheepish.  Blame it on grading, if you like.

I’ve been kicking around an idea for another book — I mean, after the novel I’ve been gnawing on.  I kind of want to explore what the point of magic is — why we do it, what it’s for.  That sort of thing.  Then I can dive into epistemology and other long Greek words, get paid fifty dollars for a year’s work, and feel a sense of accomplishment.  Sorry, I’m not bitter.  I’m actually kind of perky.  But if I sold out, I thought I was supposed to get some money, damn it.
