Cross-Pollinization: This time, spelled 98% more correctly!


The weekly roundup of what I'm writing, and what I'm reading:

What I'm Writing:

I'm not ashamed to admit I was scared, because I'm the expert on scary movie monsters, including my posting of the second Best Horror Movie Monster ever. (The Best of Everything)

Joe can help them, or rule them. I wonder which he'll choose, as the end of the world nears... (AfterDark).

I can't believe it got published, or that 5,000 people bought it. Read the first of the reviews of Books You Didn't Know You Didn't Need (Aaaugh!)

Flying saucers vs. zombies and valkyries: Now, why isn't that a book? Because it's a blog. (Lesbian Zombies Are Taking Over The World!)

And then she hugged him. At the end of Bumpy's day in New York City, he gets a surprise. (5 Pages)

Only a lawyer could make 30 days take longer than 30 days. "30 Days of Debt Collection" continues; the most recent installment discusses whether YOUR bounced check is the debt collector's problem. (Family and Consumer Law: The Blog.)

Biker Babies! and Kids Names: Thinking The Lions explores the issues you care about. And also talks about a bunch of inane stuff. (Thinking The Lions)

What I'm Reading:

Next, I plan to find out what all the fuss is about "electricity." I know I'm a little late to this one, but I only recently found out about Flying Spaghetti Monster. (Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.)

SCRIBD Friend of the Week: Did you know you can download, for free, a bunch of stuff I write? It's true -- find them all on Scribd, just like my SCRIBD friend of the week, eBajana. eBajana has degrees in political science and oil painting, as well as a Masters in Urban Planning, which I think qualifies him to design the most artistic city ever. Working as a city planner, he's also at work on the first book of action/adventure series, so look him up on Scribd and check out his writing, and while you're there, read for free:

Up So Down: When Sarah's fiance drowns under mysterious circumstances, Sarah struggles to cope with the loss by joining a group of people trying to prove there's a serial killer at work, while her brother Bumpy responds to the tragedy by moving to Las Vegas to work as a writer and photographer.

Lesbian Zombies Are Taking Over The World! In the future, everyone will eat squid jerky and listen to their octopus, and the fate of the 73 dimensions will rest on the slim, sexy shoulders of Rachel, Queen of the Lesbian Zombies. (Click here to download it free.)

Eclipse: Claudius wanted to be the first man to reach the stars. And maybe he was. Or maybe things went murderously wrong. (Click here to download the free first chapter.)

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti monster gives to credit to the almighty Richard Dawkins. May he smite them and eat their god.

Just when I think I've figured out pop culture, along comes a comment like this. I've got to go re-read that site. I didn't know I had to fear Richard Dawkins. I mean, I already DID fear him, but for non FSM-related reasons.

It's personal, is what I'm trying to say. GET OUT OF MY HEAD, DAWKINS!

Damn, I meant no credit. Dawkins was the first to use the Flying Spaghetti Monster in one of his interviews. It was the first thing I ever read by Dawkins. Its personal? What did Dawkins ever do to you?
