Me Love You Long Time

Deceptive title. That's all I have to say about that.

I just wanted to say hi, how is the awesomeness out there, so on and so forth. This is a group blog post, in that it is a post intended for a group. Group blog posts are like group emails, and group emails are obnoxious, which means that group blog posts are obnoxious, which means that I, by association and propagation, am also obnoxious, especially because I send so many group emails.
I can live with that.

I'm supposed to be working right now, meaning I'm supposed to be prepping a shoot for Lima, Peru that starts in a week. I'm really looking forward to going to Lima, or I was, until I read this:

Street crime in Lima is rampant, even by third-world standards….
The police are useless….
A lady had some cheap earrings, ripped from her ear, destroying her earlobes….
Always carry a weapon, even if it is just a pocketknife, and be prepared to use it when you are attacked.
When outside Miraflores, always hire an armed escort (Note- I have two).
Wrap your camera and purse strap with heavy wire to prevent it from being sliced with razor bladed.
Ladies should line their purses with chicken wire to make them knife-proof.


Awesome!

Still, I’m excited- maybe more excited- to go, and more than ready to down a few Pisco Sours.

On the news front, the world is still turning and New York is not yet under water from global warming or water balloon fights. At least not at the intersection of 42nd Street and 7th Avenue.

In other news, I submitted a piece of writing to a publication for the first time and it was graciously accepted. Granted, I don’t know that any pieces weren’t as it’s a new publication but from what I understand, it is now at the presses and will soon be available for sale at Barnes and Noble. I will post more about that- when I know more about that. In the meantime, me love you long time.
Now get back to work.

Update: I just got an email with the release date: April 15.
You'll be able to file your taxes and pick up a copy all in one breath!

Congrats on the upcoming publication! What is the piece and who is publishing it? I'll def keep my eyes open for it next time I'm in B&N.
