Fusenews: Single Item Edition

Due to remarkably frustrating circumstances beyond my control, my Fusenews links are currently inaccessible.  This makes me a little cranky.  Thank goodness for Reviews of the Day, eh?  Sweet delicious content.

In the meantime, there is one little item I would like you to direct your peepers towards.  Jules at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast was kind enough to invite Adrienne and myself in on a little Jan Thomas interview she was going to conduct.  Jan Thomas = Rhyming Dust Bunnies, amongst many other things.  That interview has now not only been conducted but it is up and running like nobody’s business.  Interestingly the comment section has focused primarily on the Jan Thomas predilection of keeping one’s back to the wall when dining in a restaurant.  My husband, as it happens does the same thing.  Whenever I’m able to face a room in a sit-down situation I feel like it’s an enormous boon.

Many many thanks to Jules and Adrienne for the chance to talk to this fabulous lass.

  1. Jules, 7-Imp says:

    My husband is this way — on the look-out for zombie waiters or ninjas, I think. Thanks for chatting with us over at 7-Imp land.

  2. If you want to quit your daytime job, I think you could set up tours of childrens lit museums and studios of illustrators. The interview was fantastic. You didn’t really eat oatmeal, right?
