Three Important Lessons

Yesterday I learned three important lessons.

1. Never, EVER bake a meatloaf in an aluminum pan.

2. Someone Up There really does try to warn us of bad things, like not baking a meatloaf in an aluminum pan, by doing things like having the cashier forget to ring up said aluminum pan at checkout, then have a little old lady ask, "Excuse me, did you really mean to buy this too?" and hand you said pan, and have the cashier ask if you really want to buy it, she'll ring it up separately. Take the hint: DON'T BUY IT.

3. Persistence pays off! I'm thrilled to announce that Realms of Fantasy is buying my short story, "Red." WOOT!!!!!!!!!!!

AHAHAHAHA!!! And we never listen, do we? The Universe tells us again and again "this will be BAD!", but we still get that aluminim pan and bake away. :) Too funny.

And wooohoooo! Jax RULES! (We Hellions know that already...and now REALMS OF FANTASY does too!)

I don't know what to say about the meatloaf, except that you've given me another reason not to cook.

Congrats on the story! That is too cool. You rule the school.

I always do my meatloaf in glass baking pans... but then I'm a guy, what the heck would I know :)

Congrats on the story. You'll have to let us know when it is available.

Fantastic news on the story Jackie. Let me know when the copy's out.

Meatloaf? What's a meatloaf?

Thanks so much, everyone! ROF is a dream come true.

Yeah, from now on, the only meatloaf I'm dealing with is the one that did "Bat Out of Hell."

See, this is why I try to avoid cooking at all costs. It's safer for the entire universe when I do so.

Congrats!!!! You rule!
