Murder in Paradise
I'm madly scratching away at a murder. Happy is as happy does. Yes, there is a decapitated corpse in Paradise Creek. Yeaaaa, me.
Someone wrote and said it appears I don't like anything. I'll list a few things here which I do like.
Ebola. Fascinating stuff for a guy who deals in public health.
I like the Marburg virus, Ebola, Spanish Flu, H1N1, SARS, bubonic plague, and the common cold. Biological warfare is fascinating. Anthrax - not so much. It's a pain in the ass. I hate spores.
I like Fukushima ( did you know they are making final preparation to remove fuel rods from reactor building No. 1 ? $20 says they short it.) Windscale and Chernobyl. Three Mile Island? Not so much. Fermi No. 1? Love it.
Russia out of Ukraine. Britain out of Ireland. Mexico out of California. U.S. out of Afghanistan - and Texas.
I'm a blast at parties. Since I regard social media as so much a cocktail party, you can see where I go from here: right back in the hermit cage.
Probably a good thing because I have murder to write. Next time they have Noircon, I'm going to have some noir to talk about.
Nothing up my sleeves ... but murder.
Where did I leave that headless corpse? Oh yea, the Paradise Creek.
