Item: Missy was kind enough to allow me to post a guest blog entry, my first. It has a definite editorial flavor to it. You can read it here if you would like to. Thanks for the opportunity, Missy.

Item: I added Random Mindless Ramblings to my blog list. Check H (the author) out; I like her. I also added a link to Visual Snark. I have become addicted to the images that the author/artist (oddly enough called visualsnark) creates. Enough so that I'm writing a story based on one of her images (with her kind permission). And it's really fun.

Item: I removed the Babel Fish gizmo from the sidebar. Not sure why I put it there in the first place.

Item: I'm contemplating creating a new blog site to stick stories into. If I do this, I would publish them here first then stick them in there. These entries would be the fictional pieces that I occasionally write, as opposed to the factual ones like, well, jeez, I guess I don't have any factual ones. Anyway, I'd put the ones that are stories in there.... Let me know what you think about that, if you have an opinion at all. I'm thinking about tying the stories together somehow, but I'm not sure how yet.

Item: I am intentionally leaving you hanging about the ending to Cry Of The Werehamster. It's simply a cheap ploy to make you come back and check. Also I haven't written it yet.

Item: I ran across an online Ransom Note Generator. I love this. It has "Hulles" written all over it. If you're a crime fiction writer, you need this link. I already used it in the Visual Snark story I mentioned above. I can't tell you how funny I find this site.

Item: Naked Wednesday went okay. Any Naked Wednesday I can walk away from a free man is a good one....

Item: I had a blog entry (Ignoble Drone Am I...) published in the most recent (April) edition of Avenues, and I am so proud of it. Avenues is a local (Saint Paul) news and arts monthly. My article was a full page including a half-page illustration that was superb. Many thanks to Mike (the publisher of Avenues) for doing such a nice job with it.

Item: My Brazilification continues. And speaking of which, congratulations to La Espia T. who is taking her much-admired butt down to Brazil for about 6 weeks to study something; I think it's bikini waxing but I might be wrong about that. Of course I am insanely jealous of her. For the trip, duh, not for the butt; my own ass does quite nicely thank you very much. You see, I can't help but think that if I went to Brazil I could find something to do....

Hmm....why do I think that your "something" to do would include a beautiful poetic paulista? You should go to Brazil, Hulles. There is no better way to be brazillafied.

If I were to study bikini waxing I would need a sturdy pair of earplugs and a good pair of running shoes. I think I'll just stick to the languages and let someone study on me instead ;)

Hulles said...

T., you're absolutely right about the Brasileira of course. I'm going as soon as I possibly can. And I'm not even going to think about studying on yu or I wn't bee abul to spel...

Claire said...

Congrats on the publication, amongst other things!

I'm trying very hard not to become addicted to your entries. Kudos on appearing in the Avenue!

Missy said...

Oh Hulles, thank you for taking the time to write a guest post for me. It was a magnificent piece and it has officially established Heather as a Hulles groupie.

Casti said...

Hulles, tive a oportunudade de ler a sua entrada (Missy) ref a utilização dos blogs. Para mim é uma visão a mais do outro lado do mundo e isso é muito bom. Quanto ao link com Ramblings é uma oportunidade de estender a comunicação e consequentemente a troca! De minha parte, o Brasil agradece pelo carinho e receptividade.


Beijo do Brasil,
Casti

Hulles said...

Claire, thanks lots. At first I thought it said "amongst the other thongs" and I wondered how you knew....

visualsnark, dear, thanks lots. I want you to become addicted, heh heh.

Missy, you're certainly welcome. And I'm glad it's official with Heather. None of this unofficial groupiedom for me.

Casti, A conexão é bom, não é? Obrigado assim muito, e a afeição é retornada muitas vezes sobre!

Beijo do Springtime,
Hulles

Did you get my squirrel picture?

And I loved the guest spot BTW. Nicely written.

H said...

I enjoyed your guest entry! It was quite thought-provoking, and perhaps at some point I myself will write about the thoughts it provoked. Very nice work.

Hulles said...

Lollie, yeah, I got the picture of Doris. I love it and I'm going to use it. And thank you very much.

h, thanks lots. I look forward to reading about what thoughts it provoked. Keep me posted, so to speak.

Maybe I should have specified "professional emotionally -detached" brazilian waxers may practice on me?

I love seeing all the portuguese in here by the way. It gets me all excited!

Hulles said...

You think all the Portuguese gets you excited, imagine how I feel. Heh heh.

Jen said...

I'm a "professional, emotionally-detached" brazilian waxer. ;-)

La Espia T. said...

Well, then you will just have to go to Brazil with me. ;)

Hulles said...

I wondered how long it would take for you two to find each other....
