It’s time for me to take a new author photo. Some of you may remember how spectacularly the last one was received. I was tired of talking about my long hair in the old shot. It had been in two books, three periodicals and an Aspen promo. It was two years old. Time for an update. Continue reading

Hey, I was thinking about the lyrics to “True Love Waits.”

STEE
The Radiohead song?

PAMIE
Uh-huh.

STEE
It’s like, “Duh-NUUUUH-NUUH-NAAH-NUHHH!”

PAMIE
Right. Like, “I shout out my duhhhnnnh!”

STEE
Perfect for a wedding.

PAMIE
It’s simple, though. One guitar, and then that weird beeping, and one person singing.

STEE
It’s an import, right? Not on an album?

PAMIE
I don’t think so. I was trying to figure out the lyrics on the plane. It’s something like, “I love your crazy smile.” And then there’s something about “True love waits in haunted hotels.” Something about crossing a hundred highways to be together.

STEE
“Dunnnh-NUH-NAAA-NUH-WAITS!”

PAMIE
Although I think the chorus is “Lonely. Loooonely!”

STEE
You just want Radiohead at the wedding.

PAMIE
Kinda.

STEE
“Cut the kids in half?”

PAMIE
“We hope that you choke, that you choke!”

STEE
Google the lyrics.

PAMIE
We can’t do “A Punchup at a Wedding” either.

STEE
No, I suppose not. But “True Love Waits” is a pretty song.

PAMIE
Here goes. Oh.

STEE
Let me see. Oh.

PAMIE
Yeah.

Thoughts From Above

on my way to PA.

I’m not a big fan of flying. And this morning when I saw it was raining, I was even less of a fan. I don’t think I’ve flown during rain before, and it made me nervous.

There’s also something about airports that makes me incredibly sad. All of those people saying goodbye to each other. All of the other people running to try and catch a flight, or crying because they missed the last plane out, or the ones who are asleep on benches because their waiting for their delayed flight. I find it all terribly sad, like lost people stuck in time. You can’t leave the airport and just enjoy the city you’re in. You’re stuck in this waiting place.
