OK, so last week I toyed with potential topics for a potential book that I might potentially write.

This seems appropriate.
Millions of thanks to everyone who provided feedback on that post. It seems the idea of a memoir combined with recipes from my childhood is a popular one. Which makes me happy, because I think it's a pretty good idea, too.

Food is good food.
So, uh, I'm going to do it. I'm going to write a book. I have no publisher, no agent, no interest of any kind besides my own. You know what? I don't need those things. I want to write a book because I want to finally write a freaking book already. Maybe it won't be a bestseller. Maybe no one other than myself will ever read it. I'm perfectly OK with that.

I just need to know that I can write a book.

Books are amazing. Really.
I'm telling you guys this because I want you to be all over me on this. All over me like fire ants on bare feet. Like marinara on meatballs. Like crazy on Open Carry members.

Jesus wants us to carry Russian assault rifles. OBVIOUSLY.

Ask me how it's going. Pester me about when it's going to be done. Tell me I'm not freaking crazy to think I can write a whole book. Because your support, Drunkards, means the world to me. You're why I keep writing this blog. And I'd love to give you a book. 

Here goes. Here's my goal for 2015. This may be the hardest thing I've ever done.

But I've survived a lot of difficult shit. Surely I can survive doing what I love.

I'll keep you posted, if that's OK.


  1. So excited! Not just for your amazingly entertaining words, wit, and humor, either. This fat girl loves food, so it really will be the best of everything!

  2. Years ago I read some very good advice for accomplishing a goal: Go public. Tell people so they stay on you. You've done that now, and some might say that's the hard part.

  3. Hip, hip, hooray!!!


  4. OK, so where's Chapter One? Hmmmm?


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
