Hi. To anyone who's been reading this (I know you're out there, gosh darn it!), I'm going to start updating this site on a weekly basis every Monday. And if you know of a blog which never got the attention it should have during its "lifetime," drop me a line and I'll put it up here.

mr. dutton went to mozambique / Thoughts from Moz

Two great blogs about the experiences of westerners in Mozambique. The first, mr. dutton went to mozambique, was about a biology teacher who worked there from 2002 to 2005. And the other, Thoughts from Moz, is about a Peace Corps worker who taught there in 2001.

Query Letters I Love

Of course, what if the two cops in the last post actually turned out to be partners? And what if, you know, they like really hated each other and kept writing about it in their journals and kept getting into wacky adventures in the Texas drug world? Wouldn't that make for the best movie ever!?!?

Unfortunately, no. All it mean is that it would be ready for this site. Run by a couple of Hollywood producers, it's where bad film ideas went to die.

(And if that doesn't satisfy your need for cruel fun, you can always try Query Letters I Love 2 - the action-packed sequel!!!!)
