To all of my friends, you can quit writing and calling me asking for me to not write about you in my columns. Honestly, you don’t do much that is all that interesting anyway. Memo to my other friends, I’m not doing random shout outs. Much.

Random MySpace love for StoryTeller Shannon and Momowilly (buy her book – she likes it when I say that)

My girl, Jen Orosel. Much love for Brian Knight. Fran Friel. Why? Because everyone loves Fran. Buy their books.

And a couple non-MySpace friends: Dan Bush. No, you don’t know him, but I’m contractually obligated to say his name every so often and declare my manly affection for him. My friend Michelle (who won’t be reading this anyway). It’s her fault I do random “I love you” days. Yay Snoopy Pillow!

My new INtake column is up, “Taking Life Bird by Bird.”

If you want to make sure that I see your comment or just want to stop by and say hi, feel free to do so on my message board. I apologize in advance for some of my regulars.
