I was at the movie theater, waiting for my friend outside the restroom with some boy of about eight or nine who was waiting for his mom. He saw my t-shirt. “What is that?”

“Alice in Wonderland?”

He nodded sagely. “That’s what I thought...” And then my adult cred went up. “Cool.” He considered it a moment. “Did you see the new movie? Alice Through the Looking Glass?”

“I did.” And I’m shocked this little kid is not only engaging me, a random adult, on a mutually friendly topic, but getting the details right.

“It wasn’t bad,” he said. And I could see this was another trial of trust I’d passed.

Now I have to know. “What did you go see today?” And I’m starting to wonder if it’s going to be some Cannes Film Festival winner and he’s only been humoring me to this point.

“A Wrinkle in Time.”

“What did you think?”

“It was sad in a bunch of parts. But overall I liked it.”

I left feeling like if this kid is representative of anything... given the chance, our future generations might be okay. Thanks, precocious kid at the movie theater for giving me hope.

Tickled by the Super Troopers themed 4/20 ad at Bar Louie.

I did just see Super Troopers 2, which was fun like the first one

Well this is an amusing thing to find... Someone has taken the text of a little bit of MARY ANN, put it into some kind of video game type character scene and had the computer read it aloud.

I guess technically this is my first fan art!

So in case you're missing a book or two in the THERE GOES THE GALAXY trilogy, for a limited time, I've put both THE PURLOINED NUMBER and TRYFLING MATTERS on sale for just $0.99 in the US, and proportionately cheap in the other countries Amazon serves. (The first TGTG is already $0.99.)

So you can get a lot of humorous sci-fi goodness for just a couple of bucks. All three books can be found here:

And if you have any friends who like their sci-fi funny-side-up, I hope you'll share it with them.

Happy almost-Friday! --Jenn

Boy, there are none who get so affronted as a narcissistic person who can't understand why everyone isn't smart enough to instantly get their pet intellectual theories on a topic. Theories they, of course, will hint at, yet won't share openly. Because you should just guess. And then praise them for how clever they are that they saw these connections, while no one else did.

(Note: usually when you DO find out their theory, it is also very convoluted, forced and highly unlikely.)

I've seen this behavior twice recently, and if it didn't annoy me so much, I'd write a character who does this. :) (And no, this isn't related to any of you folks. It's just me thinking aloud at the various angles of certain human personality.)

And this, my friends, is why I get good and caffeined up when I write for my character Rollie... :) "Useful Anarchy"-- that sounds about right.

In cleaning out, I came across a panel from my comic strip characters I did for my college weekly newspaper. The characters are called Shearadon and Woolworth. And you can probably guess what this panel was captioned.

Was cleaning out stuff and I found this. Ohhh, how I worked to capture what episodes I could when they reran it on Bravo after college.
