Proof reading galore

I’ve printed out the first quarter or so of the interviews for the new book — this is essentially all never-before published stuff. Right now it’s a stack of interviews about an inch high. That doesn’t include any photos yet either. So, ack, that’s a big big big big book! I figure if I cut the interviews down to what’s most interesting, it’s still three or four hundred pages…

I’m still waiting to hear back from Lulu as to what the issue with the hardcover book is/was. I assume I will hear in the next couple of days and I’ll let you know how to get your copy then.

I’ve been meaning to put this picture up for a little while — it’s from the CNE. Can you tell which two in the picture enjoy roller coasters and which two don’t? The facial expressions are priceless.

    aww, that’s terrible. I know which side I’d be on and it’d be the not-so-happy side. It’s not funny! It’s AWFUL. How everyone ELSE thinks it is super fun to feel like you are going to die, and that your guts may come out first is beyond me.
    But the two enjoying themselves do look super cute and happy. *envy* Wish I could do that!

    That reminds me of the time I went on a school Easter trip to Paris: I was 14, I think. We went to a fair one evening, and one of the really tough kids (whose French wasn’t as good as mine) asked me to go on the rollercoaster with him – ostensibly for support in case anyone asked him something in French he couldn’t understand.

    It wasn’t until we got on the ride that I realized what he was REALLY scared of was not the language barrier, but the rollercoaster itself!

    I didn’t let on that I’d found out, though.

    While I enjoy rollercoasters, life itself is the real exciting ride. The best thing you can do for kids is to give them the confidence to seek out challenges and to overcome them. I see too many kids who are limited in what then can do by imagined limitations rather than real.

    Sometimes it can be a damaging thing, exposure when too young. Going ‘off road’ in a Jeep in the Colorado Rocky Mountains at just under 3 years of age and being allowed to ride “Magic Mountain” or whatever the ride that had the nuns screaming in terror and the “Scream Machine” at just under 4 (yes, it was allowed) probably did little to install my confidence in ANYTHING. :|

    I agree. Parents can go too far the other way in exposing kids to activities/dangers which are too advanced or frightening. Kids need to be taught to think, to decide if an activity is dangerous or too scary.

    Scott will have to take our kids on all roller coasters. I cant’t even drive over dips in the road without wanting to vomit. (Seriously.)
