This is an offshoot of the original Liam & Janet blog. That blog has become overrun by Liam's inability to keep his mouth shut when something annoys him. The serious rants there seemed incongruous with the humor columns. The plan for the humor columns continues to be to post a new one every Friday, plus occasional extras when the mood strikes.

There's Something Different...

"Wait,", you say, "don't tell me. I'll figure it out. Something's different about your blog."

Yep, it's much shorter.

"I ASKED you not to tell me..."


Ladies and Gentlemen (or at least those of you who actually visit the blog, as opposed to just getting new essays e-mailed via subscription), as I mentioned recently, I have collected most of my essays up through about a month ago into a book.

So far, this blog has been wildly successful as a place for me to express my creative side, moderately successful at making readers laugh, not at all successful at heaping fame and glory upon my name and generating a huge readership, and an abject failure at making me any money at all.

Now, I didn't enter in to writing for the money, in much the same way I didn't enter into a technical career for the babes. But inasmuch as I now have enough essays together to actually publish a book, I'm sort of hoping I sell a few copies, and the best way to do that is not to have the entire contents of the book also available free of charge on the Internet.

If you're one of my loyal regular readers (and unfortunately you are so few in number that I know you all) and would particularly like a copy of one of the older columns that you've already read, I'll be happy to e-mail you a copy. But if I can manage to generate any "buzz" about the book, I'd rather not be giving away free milk and wondering why no one will buy my cow.

If you or anyone you know would be interested in a copy of the book, you can buy it at, and soon (probably January or February) on Amazon and other online book sellers.

And thanks for your continued support!


(NOTE: I did not mean to imply that there are no "babes" in science. I meant to imply that, growing up at least, on the list of careers expected to generate wild female interest, science rated somewhere between "door-to-door belly-button-lint salesman" and "Bill Clinton at an NRA meeting". So what I'm saying is, I got into science for the money. I got into writing for the fun. Having found the love of my life, I don't do anything for the babes. My story, and I'm sticking to it.)
