He was very vituperative toward Ashley Judd, almost as though I were a mere conduit to her. I don't know her but I admire her guts; this guy sounded a bit stalker-ish.

The joy of having a publicly available author e-mail :p


Sorry to read about your hate-mail CW. There are always people out there and it comes as stomach-dropping shock when you end up on the receiving end!

Sorry about your day, Pat! I sympathize with you as I know those days can just be awful!! Hugs!!

The worst thing about today is that i have a headache that just won't go away...started this morning, and still there at 3:30 this afternoon...

You have my sympathies, Miss Marplestein. I get a lot of those myself.

Sorry about your hate email CW. I guess part of the joy of being a nobody is getting no hate mail. ;)

No one person is in a position to speak for anyone else. She may not like you, but that's her problem. Remember she's a former friend for a reason. You're a great girl.

I have a good dentist. Last time I went to see him I asked about my wisdom teeth, which never came in. He said they probably never would. He was wrong. I have a lot of sympathy for my little girl now.

A few years ago I had 3 of my wisdom teeth removed in two days, real fun! ;)

Our 3 year old just dropped a toy drumstick down the plug hole in the bath!
Don't know how we are going to get that out!

A couple of months ago he put a plastic cup in one of the drains out in the backyard and we can't get that out either!
