And yet again my blog saves my bacon

And you all know how I love me some bacon!

I kind of dashed off that letter to Emma earlier this week about her grandfather's VW. And after I read through it, I thought hey! I could turn this one into a column! So I did. Just ripped myself off and lifted whole meaty word chunks straight from one page to another.

I've said this before and I'll say it again: one of the useful things about keeping a blog if you're a writer is that it can act as "an artist's sketchbook" for the other writing you have to do.

I know! Awesome-ness!

Oh, superb. I loved that piece. It was so sweet and funny and slightly melancholy (which might just be me). Yay to blogging, blogs, and bloggers (sort of like lawyers, guns and money, right?).

It was a story worth repurposing! I tried to retell it to my husband over dinner and finally said, "Oh never mind, you just need to go read it." I just couldn't get the French accent right.

I am not sure if this is appropriate but I am from the school that everything can be improved with bacon. Isn't that true?
