I’m kinda-sorta superstitious, and don’t want to start dropping names here too soon. So, I’m going to be a little vague, if you don’t mind. I don’t want the fate gods to get irritated with me.
But I’m going to New York City tomorrow, to meet with a friend who helped get me signed with one of the best literary agencies in the world. She’s an actress/model/TV personality, and fan of the West Virginia Surf Report.
She said she found the site while doing a search for “hitler cats” several years ago, and has been reading ever since. You’d know her, she’s in movies you’ve seen, etc. And she’s been a huge help to me. She knows everybody, and some of our email conversations have blown my mind…
Like, “Bill Murray is staying at our farm this weekend, and I showed him your Alli article. He couldn’t stop laughing…” You know, things like that.
So, I’m going to meet her in the afternoon. Then the two of us have an appointment with the owner of the lit agency. She knows him well, and is going to introduce us. And we’re going to talk about my book.
Can you believe all this? I cannot. Holy shitmittens. And I’m sorry that I’m being kind of frugal with the details here. But you know me… Eventually you’ll get the full story.
Wish me luck. Before turning in tonight, please say a little prayer, and ask that I not vomit, say anything incredibly stupid, or tugboat-fart during the big meeting. I’d really appreciate it.
And in case you missed it, we’re in the middle of our annual (give or take) Surf Report roll call. If you haven’t yet registered your city and state, or city and country, please do so in the comments section here. Hopefully we’ll have representation from all fifty states. Last time we were shy one Dakota, I think.
And I hate to cut this one short, but I’ve got roughly seven to four million things to do today. After the kids get home, I’m going to be running a freaking shuttle service, for one thing…
So, I’ll leave you with a semi-related Question of the Day.
If someone were to write the story of your life, and publish it as a book, what would you like the title to be? What do you think it should be?
And if that seems too far-out, just tell us what should be on your headstone, once it’s all over. What two or three things would you like to be remembered for? Harv was in touch with his legacy. What about you?
I’ll probably post a short update about my Gomer in the City adventure, sometime over the weekend. So, stay tuned for that.
And I’ll see ya then!
Have a great day, my friends.
