First, JM Webzine on MySpace
did an interview about the upcoming books. I’m probably more excited than I should be, but this is the type of thing that I really enjoy. Jon is 16 years old (I think that makes him a Sophomore), and he’s already got the mind-set that for him to do the things he wants, he has to get financially smart. I predict that he will do very well! If you are on MySpace, become his friend, check out the bands he showcases, and have some fun!
Second, at Lulu.com, the publishing house I’m using, one of the “Masters” (also known as group moderators– these guys know the process better than the rest of us newbies) made a great suggestion, and I’m adding it to the prize pot. In addition to all the other cool stuff, the winner(s) get a toothbrush, tube of toothpaste, and some dental floss! You can never be too careful with your teeth.
Third, Monday is Memorial Day. For many of us, this means a day off. This is also a day where alcohol is often coupled with driving and fire (barbecues). If you are going to consume alcohol, don’t drive. From a financial standpoint, getting a ticket or having your license suspended isn’t a smart move. From a life standpoint, being dead really affects your standard of living. There is no good side to drinking and driving. Also, be smart around the barbecue. Keep a fire extinguisher close by, and enjoy the grub.
