Suddenly I don't care about that stupid fame/fortune job anymore

| | Comments (5)

Because I have just read this.

Mr. Hanington, I wish I knew you in person.

But I am very, very lucky to know your amazing daughter. For a little while, I was fortunate enough to share an experience (living in a foreign country) with her. I just wish that we got to hang out more when we had the chance...

Now we are back in our original, opposite corners of the world, each battling our own demons and trying our best to move on and gain momentum until, eventually (hopefully) we'll take off and fly.

She is doing so much better than I am!

And now I know exactly why: She has the unfair advantage of having your genes!

that was so sweet... although, amusing aside, I originally read the text wrong, I thought it said "I wish I knew you in prison." Then when I clicked the link I thought, how awful that this sweet old man is in prison! Happily, the truth is otherwise.

Hi Red. Thanks for your kind words. I hope you do well battling your demons. Zoot really loves and values you. Come visit Hawaii some day?

Although I do think you are meant for print, so step smart now!

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
