Well, today's the last day for all of us guest-posters to go nuts over at BookNinja, so I just wanted to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to all of you who took the time to vote for me over there. It's been a super good time, and I hope George (owner of the site) isn't kidding when he says we all get a pair of BookNinja thong underwear in return for our efforts. I don't want it to wear, mind you. I want it because the idea of owning anything as stupid as a pair of thong underwear makes me giggle. How on earth can women stand wearing those things?
Now, before I went into a thong digression, I was going to say I had a lot of fun at BookNinja yesterday because I took another cheap shot at Jodi Picoult (it just never gets old). Also, thanks to AustenBlog, I posted a link to British actors reading literature excerpts (as advertisements) at the Carte Noire site. It doesn't seem fair that I haven't yet provided that link here, so here you go: Dominic West reading Pride and Prejudice. Super. I don't quite know how that sells coffee, and frankly, I don't care.
Also, just in case you missed it, William Langewiesche had an article in the June issue of Vanity Fair about the plane that landed in the Hudson River early this year. I've not read anything else on the subject, but I'm going to read this, because....well, you know.
