BobS: true true BobS: will look good on a resume Daniel Bienvenu: I will try to do a good job and find another job at the same time. JudyS: I did those already BobS: resume' or is it resume (like get going again) Pamela: it is easier to find another job if you are already employed, Daniel - strange, but true Pamela: the Cornwells? BobS: sure, just accept one and three others call JudyS: yes Pamela: ah, okay XP MacFaker: I still quite firmly believe that WORK is a four letter word Pamela: my biggest problem is, my authors don't write fast enough for me Dr. D.: in academia we call it a "curriculum vitae" Dr. D.: Fanfic then Pam BobS: I agree Ron.....this part time job in the afternoons is KILLING me Pamela: so is FOOD, Ron
moved to room Meeting Place JudyS: don't get Bob started on that Ron

Daniel Bienvenu: my curriculum vitae is up-to-date... Pamela: well, it's what results from Work, Ron - that's the problem BobS: how's things? Guy B.: What have you been doing? XP MacFaker: true BobS: WORK........nasty four letter word Dr. D.: Well, Pam was just talking about all things dead... Scott: Working 2 jobs right now, plus have a new baby. Hard to get online Wednesday night. Pamela: that and HOME : ) BobS: CONGRATS Dr. D.: congratulations Scott JudyS: yes, and we need that, to keep me in the lifestyle I am used to XP MacFaker: workplace politics, internal struggles for control, jealousy, envy, sloth, BobS: TWO jobs? Scott: My son was born on July 20th. He's about 8 months now. Guy B.: Wow, no wonder. BobS: got to slow a little maybe ........later XP MacFaker: and a lot of CYA Pamela: me too, Judy : ) - that and books Guy B.: What's his name? Scott: Aidyn Pamela: although, everyone knows to get me Chapters gift certificates for Christmas and birthdays, and I'm a happy camper XP MacFaker: What are ya up to these days Scott? Scott: Aidyn / Aidan means "little fire" in Irish Daniel Bienvenu: this saturday, I have a meeting with my friends video game collectors in Montreal. Pamela: and is he living up to his name? : ) XP MacFaker: Isn't there a St. Aiden? Pamela: sounds like fun, Daniel Scott: Right now I'm editing a fantasy novel that I wrote and working for Northrop Grumman and Hyatt JudyS: I go to the libary don't buy them wouldn't know what to do with them all when done with them XP MacFaker: aircraft? BobS: the hotel people? Pamela: wallpaper the house with them, that's what we did : ) Dr. D.: lunar module Pamela: shelves and shelves and shelves full of books Daniel Bienvenu: I think I will talk about this year Adamcon to the Coleco programmers who will be there. Dr. D.: that is Grumman to me :-) JudyS: that is why I request them pick them up and bring them back Scott: Yes, there's a St. Aidan of Lindisfarne, but my son isn't named after him XP MacFaker: ohhhhhh Dr. D. REALLY! Pamela: I go back and read them over and over again JudyS: they have a great website BobS: cool Daniel Dr. D.: yes Ron Scott: Wow, there's an AdamCon coming up. Where is it taking place? JudyS: not me know the ending XP MacFaker: Ottawa Pamela: by the time I've gotten through all my Nora Roberts, I'm ready for a break and move on to fantasy or murder mysteries for a while Dr. D.: Ron, some light reading for you in that vein: Dr. D.: http://drushel.cwru.edu/apollo13/ Scott: Nora Roberts, yes, great role model for all writers Pamela: then, someone writes something new and I start the process over again Scott: I've read up on her processes, but not necessarily her novels Pamela: she is my absolute favourite author, Scott - and I've got all the books she's ever written Daniel Bienvenu: I bought a waffle iron a month ago. I'm using it sometimes and I like waffles. XP MacFaker: got it Dr D Dr. D.: Enjoy Scott: Apparently she writes for 8-10 hours every day. No days off. Scott: That's part of the reason she's able to produce as much as she does. Scott: Of course, it doesn't hurt to have her talent. XP MacFaker: pasted it into my Wordpad Dr. D.: It's fascinating stuff if you like technical writing. Pamela: very true. Sounds sort of off topic, but have you read the Da Vinci Code? Scott: No, the subject matter of the Da Vinci Code doesn't interest me. XP MacFaker: I enjoy having written Scott: But I do own a copy XP MacFaker: the rest is work and that's a 4 letter word Pamela: well, it's not very well written Daniel Bienvenu: before I forgot, I think my coleco friends who will be able to go to the adamcon will appreciate having a copy of the colecovision programming manual. Dr. D.: You have yours, Daniel. Pamela: that's the reason I asked. Nora has the ability to paint a picture with words - once you start her novels, you feel like you can picture everything she writes Dr. D.: Distribute copies as much as you wish. XP MacFaker: you mean a printed copy? XP MacFaker: I believe I have one or two Daniel Bienvenu: my copy is actually in Germany Scott: The author claims the book is a work of fiction, then stands by his research claiming his is the absolute truth. Pamela: Dan Brown lacks that ability, and it showed in the Da Vinci Code Scott: Hmmm, interesting. Scott: I've read a lot of Dean Koontz. Daniel Bienvenu: I did a copy of my copy... but I give it to someone the time to copy it Scott: I was surprised to learn that he's a very fast writer as well. XP MacFaker: and you never saw it again Dr. D.: ...and then never got it back? Pamela: i've never been able to get into his books JudyS: I have not read the Da Vinci Code Daniel Bienvenu: well, I suppose to get it back saturday Daniel Bienvenu: during the meeting Dr. D.: I hope so... Scott: If you read one of Koontz's books, it should be Hideaway. Scott: It shows what he's capable of when given the time. XP MacFaker: I will never read the Da Vinci Code, or at least not until my Daughter-in-law gives me back my copy JudyS: doesn't interest me either, made a stir in church Pamela: his books tend to lean toward horror, or psych thrillers though, right? XP MacFaker: but I've seen the movie, so that pretty much killed it XP MacFaker: I need to read more fiction. BobS: hope you get it back Daniel, there are only som many and the copies gets worse as they get copied XP MacFaker: When I get to it, I quite enjoy it Scott: Yes, it's a mix of science fiction, horror, and psych thriller. Sometimes it works (Hideaway), othertimes it doesn't (Dragon Tears) XP MacFaker: but at 230 words a minute, everything is very very long BobS: Daniel, you can go online to Dr D's website and print it out.......... http://drushel.cwru.edu/atm/atm.html Pamela: I am more into fantasy, murder mysteries, and anything by Nora Roberts. It's for that reason that I'm not a big Stephen King fan, either BobS: get anewly printed copy you would Mrs. D: well folks I think I'm going to hit the hay soon Pamela: my computer says it's only 10:00 Dr. D.: That's the ADAm manual, not the CV manual. XP MacFaker: why? it's only 8pm BobS: ah......... BobS: well it should help , yes????? JudyS: night Mrs D Pamela: it hasn't caught up to the new DST yet Mrs. D: everybodys a wise guy :-) Scott: Stephen King is an interesting one. I read Bag of Bones which was OK, but could have been reduced 200 pages. XP MacFaker: my Mac Book obviously doesn't know we're on daylight saving Dr. D.: Sounds like a plan Ms. Rin. XP MacFaker: it say 6:53 pm Pamela: good night, Rin Dr. D.: Nite all. XP MacFaker: G'nite to the Drushel's Mrs. D: y'all have a good nite and week!! XP MacFaker: be well
