February 28, 2004
Still sprinkling out. Took a great walk with the dogs. Got a fire in the studio stove, Buddy is sleeping on his chair (see photo).

Last night I drove into Phoenix and met Theresa from Tri Star again at the Superpumper (gas, $13.33, 1.99 a gallon). She needed more books signed. Afterwards I went to El Conquistador and had the con juego soup and two margaritas ($21, includes tip). Which reminds me of two things. I got one of those goofy, but fun e-mails that you are supposed to forward, and it’s a quiz. Here are my answers. And secondly, check out the priceless quote today at the end.

Now this is one of those goofy e-mail chain things and you’re supposed to copy and paste the above questions into your computer, Change all the answers that apply to you then send this to “a whole bunch of people” including me. I got this from our old editor Mare Rosenbaum who lives in Brazil. The theory is you will learn a “lot of neat facts” about those you think you know. For example, I didn’t know Mare had two piercings (although that may be just earring holes. Damn!).

Remember to send the first copy to me at
