    despite the pussy 

    its true ive been a little down lately.

    maybe its the stars maybe its the global warming maybe its the fact that my bears forgot that they were the best defense in the nfl and couldnt stop a team who had just lost their running back.

    maybe its that true love is the only thing that can make a heart really warm inside. you can only throw newspapers on a fire for so long, eventually its going to want something with more substance.

    over the weekend, people seemingly knew i wasnt doing so well and i got gifts from people i didnt expect. i got a tip on a great hotshot lawyer for a nuisance where i might actually get some money, i got to go to a free screening of a major movie thats gonna come out in the spring, i was treated to a delicious meal in the kitchen of a famous restaurant, i received some very sweet phone calls yesterday and today i got two gifts from readers that were very nice.

    the portrait that you see up top there is from andy of town and planet, and i love it because ive wanted to learn that technique, but what better than to have someone do it for you without you even having to ask?

    the other gift today was an mp3 from a very nice young woman in Northern Cal named amy who sent me a goovin tune.

    its the little things that mean a lot.

    especially when youre too shy to send me something topless.

    on saturday i got back the last batch of books that i ordered and there was a minor printing flaw so i have to send them back and get a new last batch.

    so heres the deal my friends, and if you think im kidding around youre high, after 1/31 there will be no more editions of Stiff being printed. forever thing there is a season and this season is just about over.

    so if you want the best thing ive ever written now is your chance and forever hold your peace. ive fulfilled almost all of the orders that have come in, and i dont have any extra books laying around. if you havent yet gotten your book please let me know, and if you think that you’re going to order one, let me know so i can know how many i should have printed.

    i plan on putting out a new book before the year is over but as soon as you say something like that it jinxes it. so consider this a jinx.

    anyways thanks for everyone who has been nice to me over the last week. youve been great. and if theres anything i can do for you please let me know.
