New quote of the day

“‘Challenging’ is a synonym for ‘fun’ around here.”
– my son’s Parkour teacher at his birthday party yesterday.

That’s going to be my new writing motto.

In other funtastic news, Circle of Enemies is available for pre-order at Amazon.com as of, well, now. It won’t ship until the end of July (the 26th, by the current plan) but you can help Amazon.com decide how big their initial order should be.

I have no idea what that means, either. I’m just vamping here.

I have lots to do today, so I’m not going to be online much. Don’t forget to check out/comment on the last minute gift suggestion posts on my blog or on LiveJournal.

Worst of all, he wants to quit. I think he really wants a year-long break until he ages up closer to the kids above; right now he falls into the age where he switches from the young group to the older group, and he's not happy in the older group.

I love that quote too.

Also, HOW does one find a Parkour teacher? (I just looked up what it is.)

If you lived in Seattle, I'd send you to http://parkourvisions.org/

For you, I'd suggest putting your hometown into Google maps and "Search Nearby" for "parkour". I'd use the quotes, too, to avoid formulations like "park. Our" from turning up.

Good luck!

    Oh, yeah, excellent point.

    Oh yeah. Like the lawyers who get obvious really venal criminals off because it makes their success rate look good. But those are not the ones I am referring to in meaning well. These guys are mixed…

    This reminds me of the time my wife was injured and the insurance guy handling her case did everything possible to deny and stall the payment. We had to put her surgery on a credit card because this…

    The creepiest part is that some of them are actually well meaning.

    Yeah. It's godawful what people will do when they have authority and no fear about using it.
