The name of the protagonist in my upcoming novel:

My new favorite quote from a cartoon:
"This is the current world of the forever now!" (Agnes)
My favorite silly motel name:
The Alpine Chalets (At Otter Rock, Oregon, on the beach, virtually at sea level) - okay, they are pointy A-frames, but still, as far away from alpine as you can possibly get. I love to stay there. They have kitchens and lofts for the kids, and I can bring my dog. And it's fun to say, "Let's go to the beach and stay at the Alpine Chalets!"
Favorite recent newspaper headline:
"In Life and Death, the Gribbles Gather" This headline appeared in the Oregonian on May 31, 2005, over a story about a family that has their own cemetery.
And sorry about those haikus.
