Wow, I was just thinking about that I had seen a post from you for a while. Hope your new year is going well so far.

Are you coming down to San Diego again this year?

Oh, SD. Yeah, pretty good chance I'll go, though nothing 100% certain yet. I'd also love to go to Writercon, provided that's actually happening. If it does, maybe I'm lucky and it'll be the weekend before or after Comic con, not the same frikkin days like last time.

You're going, I take it? Remind me sometime to question you about the Hostel... I'm wondering whether the single rooms aren't the better choice since they're not facing the street (or, worse, that back alley).

Fire away an email any time you like. Happy to help if I can.

I love "The Big Lebowski".

Have you ever seen "The Wire"? There's a brilliant (and absolutely hysterical) 5-minute scene between two detectives and variations of the word fuck is the only word uttered. Plus they manage to solve a six month old murder case at the same time.

I saw half an episode of The Wire. Seemed like a very good show (though hysterical wouldn't be the word coming to mind for that ep I saw ;).

The show is often very, very funny although in a very bleak way.

From the very first episode of the very first season: (they're talking about a craps game)

Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: I got to ask you. If every time Snotboogie would grab the money and run away, why'd you even let him in the game?
Witness: What?
Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: If Snotboogie always stole the money, why'd you let him play?
Witness: You got to, this is America, man.

I, mean, that's funny.

I must admit I was really surprised when most of the questions given to David Hewlett on that SciFi Q&A were mine! :)

"There's only four people watching the show" *snicker*

It's funny when you watch these Q&As and actually recognize the names. Small world.
