Y’know how they say bad things come in threes like a pack of Shakespearean witches? I believe bureaucracy is one of those. It specializes in triplicate, after all.
January is an administrative time around here. I redo the family budgeting, start to get my business year-ends in order for tax time, file the paperwork that keeps my homeschooling children decriminalized…all that great stuff.
I have posts in the lineup for the coming week, but I’ll be scarce. To that end, I’ve enlisted two recurring guests to act as hosts in the comments section. Here’s the dish on the dudes:
If you haven’t already, please meet my esteemed writing partner, Mr. Marc Schooley, cowboy philosopher.
1) This is his bio, at least when I get to write it. (Ha.)
2) He writes paranormal fantasy novels, and has garnered some critical acclaim and industry awards.
4) Also there was the hilarious Music and Mathematics Debate of 2010, which took place between Scita > Scienda and Marc’s philosophy and culture blog The Areopagus.
I have far too much respect for Mr. P.A. (Paul) Baines to write a bio for him. Mr. Baines is an extremely hilarious person, and might well write a bio for me in return. Not to mention, he was born in England, the country of James Bond, and has previously lived in Africa, the land of lions. He now lives in Holland, the land of…well, tulips, which I suppose is a nice change of pace from lion-taming.
Here is what you lions will need to know to survive in the comments section this coming week:
1) Paul can make you laugh till the tears are running down your leg. Therefore, you may wish to toddle over to the loo first before visiting Scienda.
2) He is the author of Alpha Redemption, a literary sci-fi novel that happens to be one of my favourite projects ever as an editor. He has an upcoming sci-fi comedy/satire called Hanzet, the Universe and Everything coming out this year, as well as the Alpha sequel Alpha Revelation.
4) He has written a cultural synopsis for Scienda entitled The Great National Dutch Bicycle Race. It is not to be missed, nor taken without a good strong cup of levity.
Due to a relative paucity of words on my part, I’ll be relying heavily on visuals next week. We shall travel! We shall visit my doom-kitten-infested living room! We shall hear songs of Canada! We shall conclusively resolve unending debates with the perspicacious use of chickens!
And I promise, Mr. Durdin, there will be NO spiders.
