Upcoming Guest Post by Lucy Woodhull
Yes, I am freezing here in the fog belt and baking bread to warm the house, thank you for asking. I'm going to remodel my house into The Global Warming Bed & Breakfast -- bring a warm sweater and I'll give you a cup of tea.
I have a lot of these great ideas, but tragically lack the follow-through to actually make anything happen. This explains all the abandoned Robot Maid parts in my garage. The closest I ever got to creating a workable Robot Maid was the model that could mix an excellent strawberry daiquiri. I had such hopes! How could I know that giving a robot access to the Cuisinart and other appliances would result in the creation of mutinous clones? Luckily I was able to disarm them with the swift application of wet poodles thrown into the microwave, but, ay caramba, what a mess! And the mess really made me want robot maid assistance.
The point of this is: damned if you create a robot maid to make tasty frozen drinks and damned if you don't have one to clean up poodle/microwave casualties. I hope you will learn something from this poignant cautionary tale.
So hilarious Lucy Woodhull, who I deeply admire because of her very fancy name, will be the guest blogger here on Thursday, August 8, to talk about her new book, The Dimple of Doom. She'll be sharing a free excerpt and all kinds of stuff. Maybe she'll even give me some robot-making tips. Fingers crossed! Lucy's very funny, also romancy, with a soupcon of smutty, so I hope you'll come read her guest blog.
