Before I let Yvonne take over, I'm going to tell you something about her. She's not only my (very tall) friend, she's an awesome new Desire writer and she knows lots and lots about writing and publishing. So feel free to pick her brains!! (But don't tell her I told you to do so).
Wow, I’ve never been the subject of a scavenger hunt before, but Nalini assured me it wouldn’t hurt and so far she’s right! Thanks for the guest blog-spot, Nalini, and yeah, for the record I do think you’re pretty cool.
I have to admit to being a little overawed and very much a newbie at this blogging phenomenon, but it sure seems to be a great and fun way to share and expand on ideas, thoughts and happenings. Speaking of happenings, I’m relieved to hear that your earthquake didn’t cause any damage, Nalini. Can’t say I’m terribly impressed with your reminder that NZ is so similar geologically to Japan—not impressed at all! I was born in
Speaking of computers, the weirdest thing my computer does to me nowadays is compact my email. This exciting feature of XP is darned annoying. I’ve lost entire folders worth of email which I’m sure are somewhere lurking in the bowels of my hard-drive (ick), but WHERE? And who’s stupid idea was it anyway to compact email in the first place, it’s kind of like your mother going into your bedroom while you’re at school or work and tidying up for you—you get home and think you know exactly where everything is, until you go to put your hand on it and it’s gone and lost forever. If anyone has any brilliant suggestions at recovering compacted files (I’m getting visions of a garbage compacter here—argh!) I’d be truly grateful.
