Taking a short break to rest my brain cells. Aliens is on. Attic creature is stirring for the first time in weeks. Ate some nice greasy pork chops and I’m feeling good.
My schedule is coming together for Comic Con. So far I’ve got two signings and a panel, but there could be more. Stay tuned. I won’t be going to the Romantic Times conference as I had originally planned. I had to make some hard choices about travel this year—and New York won. I’m so sorry I won’t get a chance to see some of you at the literacy signing.
Here, check this out: I’ve been following LeVar Burton on Twitter. I love him. I watched Reading Rainbow as much as I could when I was growing up, and I dare anyone to find a sweeter, more wonderful show for children. I rank it right up there with Sesame Street. So look at this!
Reading Rainbow was cancelled in 2006 (after first airing in 1983), and at some point they had updated the theme song to something I guess they thought would better fit the sensibilities of “today’s children”. Whatever. It’s the same song, but faster, and with more special effects. It’s not as sweet as the old version. But then, I’m an old fogie.
