One of the downsides of the blogosphere

Don't post for awhile and y'all start ruminating in the comments that I'm dead or something.
Well, it's or something.
Busy.

Insanely busy. Some of it is VERY good stuff. Some of it is fallout from the layoffs (I know 15 people who've lost their jobs. That's not fun.)

No one has my permission to worry about me.
Much like in the event of a national emergency, if something bad happens to me, air raid sirens will alert you immediately. I swear.

Too late. I sent Twenty Dollar Bill looking for you already. He was instructed to pay the ransom or don't return. (That may mean you're stuck with him for a while if the ransom was what you are worth.)

Send up signals or have your slithery assistant let us know you're all right next time so we don't have to send out the posse.

Steve Ulfelder said...

It's your own fault. We all listened to your last post backwards, and it said "I buried Paul."

Susan said...

Whew, what a relief about the air raid sirens. Thanks!
(You're so thoughtful!)

Glad to hear you're busy, not laid off, still blogging, and also wishing you a wonderful holiday to come (in case we all get too busy to say it later!)

Margaret Yang said...

Glad you're okay! Did you get the clue-by-four I sent you? You might need it.

Abby said...

Admit it! You're...you're seeing another blog, aren't you? *sob*

BJ said...

I said you were all right. Didn't I say that? I knew you were alive because you posted at Dead Guys.

Although, I do have to admit I was worried when you said you'd have less than a 50/50 chance against zombies... but then I realized that, just because people in NYC often *look* like zombies, they're not really zombies.

Right?

ICQB said...

I don't worry about you.

Just_Me said...

*calls back the zombie search horde*

Don't worry, they were under strict orders to find you, not eat you. Promise.

Would I hurt my favorite NYC agent?

Send up the smoke signal if you need help. Stay warm. Enjoy whatever holiday downtime you can grab :o)

If you think there's concern here, you should check out the Query Shark. They've started a narrative about you until you return. It's truly frightful.

Crimogenic said...

Janet, I figured you were busy. And in my book when an agent's busy with work, that's a good sign. Thanks for checking it! :)

Miriam S.Forster said...

Really? I didn't think you were dead. It's only been a week.

Now, if you don't post for a month or two, I'd get worried....

Jessica said...

This is why I read this blog.
You're hilarious!
Glad to know your manuscript pile didn't suffocate you.

Southern Writer said...

Did you feel that? Satan just shuddered. "Oh, shit! She's back!"

Belvoir said...

Query Shark stopped swimming on September 22, 2008, its ghastly carcass now nibbled on the seafloor by tiny minnows, all worried about what a McCain presidency might mean.

Can ya give us some warning next time.. I'm still twitching here? :D

So sorry about your friends.
