This and That & Stationery Giveaway

Here's the ultimate in easy for entering a giveaway. Leave a comment on this post, including an e-mail address where I can reach you, or send me a message at with your mailing address, and I'll send you a surprise package of stationery, including some combination of notecards, postcards, bookmarks, and paper. Please limit your special requests, if you have them, to "I really like/don't like [postcards, bookmarks, etc.]." And, yes, I'll send to international addresses.

If you're in Nebraska, take a look at the Stand with Randy events scheduled for this weekend. Randy's a Nebraska rancher fighting TransCanada, the moral equal of Wal-Mart (pretty much the worst insult I can give a business), and their plan to build a pipeline through the Nebraska Sandhills, arguably one of the most wonderful ecosystems in this country. Okay, I'm biased, but it's still beautiful and worth preserving, not risking senselessly, and don't even get me started on the threatening letters TransCanada sends to landowners. Those letters alone get my Gen X independence gene thumping.

What are your plans for the weekend? We have Herb's 49th birthday to celebrate tomorrow, including a date night while my best friend babysits Maya, and a trip planned to the county fair with one of Maya's friends, weather cooperating.

I love free stuff, but I don't think I will count as I generally see you at least once a month; and besides, you KNOW my email address!

I am really looking forward to seeing Miss Maya tomorrow night!

Make sure you tell Herb Happy Birthday from me, unless of course he comes with you when you drop off/pick up Maya and then I will tell him myself!!

If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things by Jon McGregor

The May selection for my work book club is Jon McGregor's If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things (2002). The novel follows various individuals in one neighborhood on a particular day, an ordinary day that ends with a terrible tragedy.

Here's the short set of questions I e-mailed to book club members yesterday, along with my own responses.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
