Yikes! Remind me to never go a mile below the surface of the Ocean. The calamari looks like it may take its revenge.

I am back. Two things I learned on my trip. Cancer sucks and Connecticut is cold. I got a slew of emails about the contest while I was away, and I think I’ve now responded to everyone. If you sent me an email, and I haven’t replied, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you haven’t heard about the Kindle contest, where have you been? It’s all the rage. For you latecomers, here’s a link that explains everything: Win a Free Amazon Kindle!
Completely changing the subject. Youtube just did some live event that I missed, but a guy that I am a big fan of took part. Here’s Brandon Hardesty‘s contribution to the event. Call me crazy, but I think this guy is going to be big some day.
I will be away from the bloggerhood for awhile. Unfortunately, I lost my favorite mother-in-law (inside joke) to cancer, and I will be spending time with family.
Carry on without me, and keep reading!
On the Kindle contest front. I’m getting a great response, and I appreciate everyone who’s sent an email to email@example.com for more details. If you haven’t heard of the contest, all you have to do is send me an email to the aforementioned email address with the subject line “Loop me in on the Kindle contest,” and I’ll send you the rules. One point of clarification. Someone wanted to know if I’m giving away the Kindle version of my book or the actual Kindle device. I’m giving away the Amazon Kindle wireless reading device (current retail is $359). Some of you are doing an excellent job with the “Spread the Word Bonus” program. So far, one person has turned 15 people on to the contest. Think you can top it? C’mon, you know you can. I’ve already given away a couple of signed copies of The Takers, so hurry up and send your friends and family my way to win one of the remaining copies. In case you forgot or didn’t know, the first ten people to send 10 people my way, I’ll send you a free signed copy of The Takers.
Thanks to everyone, especially all you fellow bloggers who are helping me spread the word.
Finally, I just thought this was too funny. Apparently, this car wash hates acid wash jeans and mullets. I’d love to know what their SAT scores were.

I’m sure I’ve posted this here before, but I’m putting it up for a special person today. Indulge me.
A Different Kind of Cap & Gown!
The Harry Potter craze has officially gone too far. Flamel College, “the largest Hermetic education portal on the Internet,” is offering a certificate in wizardry. Yes, you read right. Your dream of becoming a wizard is just an online course away from becoming reality, and I use that word “reality” in the broadest possible terms. This is from their website:
To be awarded the Certificate of Wizardry from Flamel College and membership in the Wizard’s Guild, the student should first complete all 22 lessons in the first part of the textbook. This will give the student the knowledge and expertise to successfully complete the interactive Wizard’s Adventure in the second part of the textbook. This part of the textbook is the exam for the course. Crack the code at the end of the “Wizard’s Adventure” and email or mail to your instructor. If your code is correct, you will be mailed your engraved certificate and more information on how to practice wizardry.
Thank you J.K. Rowling. I’m sure, thanks to Stephanie Meyer, that degrees in Vampireology are just around the corner. I’m actually working on a course in Hyper Mental Imaging. Shame on you if you don’t know what that is.
BTW – Hermetic means occult science.
The qualifying question has been emailed for the “Oz Chronicles Win an Amazon Kindle Contest.” If you don’t know what I’m talking about, follow the link for an explanation.
BTW – If you know the answer to the qualifying question, please do not post it any where on this blog. You’re all on the honor system.
