If it's Monday it must be Meme-day
Gacked from minisinoo. I thought this was kind of interesting and I'll try it out.

Name one CD you own that no-one on your friends' list has: Tom Chapin's "Billy the Squid"

Name one book you own that no-one on your friends' list has: Home Front by Joel Rosenberg, but you should all go out and get it. Not because he's my brother but because it's a really entertaining and fun mystery novel and I'd like to see him write more mysteries (he's mostly a SF and fantasy writer).

Name one place you've visited that no-one on your friends' list has: I'll do two and bet serious money no one on my f-list has been to either: Winnipeg, Manitoba (my ancestral home town) and Northwood, ND (my actual childhood home town).

::blink:: Joel Rosenberg is your brother? As in "Guardians of the Flame" Joel Rosenberg? Cool! Man, Avi and I loved that series! I have to admit I haven't read any of his stuff recently, but this mystery looks awesome. I'll track it down :)

Yeah, that's my bro. One of the books is dedicated to me :-).

With a lot of writers in the family and friendship circle, my kids have a skewed view of the profession. I still get excited to see Joel's books in bookstores and always check them out every time I go into a store. I say "Look at how many of Uncle Joel's books are here!" and the kids are all "Duh! It's a bookstore. Where would they be? Toys R Us?"

Similarly when Doran was 8 he was absolutely wailing one day, "I'm almost nine years old and NO ONE HAS EVER DEDICATED A BOOK TO MEEEEEEE!" I told him that I was over 30 before I had a book dedicated to me and felt lucky when it happened. Doran's problem has since been rectified, though...

Nope, never been to Winnipeg, but I did briefly consider going recently (last month, actually) for the International Drag King Extravaganza! ;D

LOL! I am very surprised that was in Winnipeg!
