As I write this, it is 6:30 a.m., and you should know that I am not a morning person. I'm getting set to be interviewed on Tom Dunne's Newstalk radio show in Ireland, which is an exciting enough reason to rise out of bed so early. It's 11:30 a.m. over there. I actually thought for a second they would interview me when I was teaching in Las Vegas, and, for the briefest moment, we were trying to arrange a scenario where they called me from 7:30 a.m. their time and I would pick up the phone at 11:30 p.m. the previous day. Probably a good idea that never happened. (Real time update: Interview finished; Tom was very nice and an Irish accent is always nice to hear.)

Meanwhile, How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack got a nice review on San Francisco Book Reviews. See it here.
