Humphrey Bogart meets C-3PO

I just finished reading The Automatic Detective. It was definitely a good read.
This science fiction novel has everything a good story needs. A nice plot, a great main character and bone crushing action.
And a lot of humor too. It's different than your run of the mill robot sci-fi story.
This is the first time I've read a book by A. Lee Martinez and I was disappointed to discover that he only has 4 other books that he's written so far. I'll have to pick those up and read them. Looks like there is another book due to come out September 2008.
This story definitely has the same feel as a Terry Pratchet or Douglas Adams story. A fascinating story with a bit of the absurd thrown in to make it unique.

Post #. . .whatever comes after two

Today on the way to work I walked past one of those tables for the United Homeless Foundation and the conversation went like this:

him: "Can you spare some change?"

me: *shakes head - keeps walking*

him: "Just a penny sir"

me: *shakes head - keeps walking*

him: "Half a penny?"

me: *grins and shakes head - keeps walking*

him: "how about you just pick up a rock and throw it at me?"

Second Post

I got a nice e-mail from Polo. I don't think I've spoken to him in over . . . five years? Wow, it's been a while.
I sent him an e-mail yesterday he responded today. He said that as incredible as it sounds, he had just typed my name into the google search engine the day before trying to see if he could find some information on me but nothing had come up. Funny timing. After all these years, we still can communicate telepathically.
The news:
He's moved to Machala.
His daughter is sick, but nothing that she wont be over in a couple of days.

And that's about it. We're both hoping that we can start some kind of communication because neither of us have been very good at it in the past. But then again, it's never been quite so easy before either. :)

I don't have anything to say, I just don't want my blog to be blank so I'm posting this.

Please don't mock me for it.
