My bookshelf is showing

Yesterday the Muncie Star Press ran two pieces on me. One was a book review and the other was a profile.

The stories continued the theme that “Timmerman is neither a journalist or an academic; he’s just some guy,” which is really beginning to grow on me. Ivy Farguheson, a real-life journalist, was great to talk to and did an excellent job writing piece. So good in fact, that it landed a photo of me on the front page of the paper and featured story in the Life section.

In total, four photos of me appear in the paper. A bit too much ME…for me. While the interview was comfortable, the photo shoot with Kurt Hostetler was less so. I don’t mind…

Plumpy Nut on the Terminator

In the future when we are hiding from our robot overlords, we’ll eat Plumpy Nut.

I know because I saw it on Terminator: the Sarah Conor Chronicles the other night. From the shows recap:

Jesse explains to Derek later that they’ve started growing food again there. She offers Sydney a delicious snack of Plumpy Nut– “Peanut butter mixed with baby formula and vitamin powder,” as she describes it.

Oh, Plumpy Nut…I remember when I first blogged about you, well before your Hollywood fame.

(Note: Plumpy Nut is still in the running of names for our little girl-to-be)…

WAIW? Available for Amazon's Kindle

Dear Santa,

I want a Kindle for Christmas. Yeah, I know they’re expensive and that you just got laid off. But, you see, I’m hopefully going to be doing the research/travel for my second book in 2009 and I would love having not to drag around a library or scrounge an entire foreign city only to find one book in English — usually a romance novel. I would ask for a Sony eReader, but apparently Sony is too good to carry WAIW? Amazon isn’t. To help you out, you can download it by clicking on the pic below.

A Contest: The R.A.N.Ties

I’m not sure if The Rant is a literary or comedic form or if it’s just straight bitching, but I love the rant.

In fact, you may have read some of my rants, including the one about Mrs. Butterworth’s boobs.

To me, a perfect pitch, well-timed, rant is a work of art. We should cut them out and frame them. We should make wallpaper on which the text of the rant is the design. There should be an awards ceremony the R.A.N.T.ies:

Raging
Angry
Name-calling
Treatise

Nominate your best rant of the year in this comment thread or write your own. We’ll have a vote and the winner will win something – maybe a copy of WAIW?, if you’ve got one of those, maybe something else.

I would like to nominate…
