Thursday Thirteen

Thursday Thirteen
Random Thoughts Circa 11:20PM on Wednesday Night
(Edition #14)
1. Tooth no longer aches. Karma is no longer punishing me.
2. Really should wash my hair tomorrow.
3. Just read a published short story with Elvis Presley as the narrator. Is that even legal? Can the Presleys sue the author for fictionalising their relative without consent?
4. Does that mean Jean Plaidy got her arse sued for writing all those books about dead royals?
5. Disappointed that signing-session ticketholders at ARRC09 won’t be allowed into the goodie room. Do you reckon a delegate could get a free Goodie Room Guest pass for me?
6. After I finish this ARC, I might re-order my To-Be-Read pile.
7. Coldplay’s “Lost!” has great percussion (take a bow, Will Champion), but I still wish they’d released “Yes” as a single instead.
8. Must research bio-stasis at Wikipedia sometime soon.
9. Must check what Family Guy episode Channel 7’s showing at whatever bloody time tomorrow night.
10. Joe R. Lansdale’s contribution to the Blood Lite anthology is the best of the bunch so far.
11. Weenie pull! (See 10.)
12. Yawny. Think I’ve ran out of thoughts.

  1. I think the answer to #3 is, yes it is and no they can’t. I know for sure that you can’t libel the dead.

  2. Heh heh this was lovely and random!

    Good question about the Elvis story but I bet if it’s in imagination a writer can get away with it.

    I’m recording a program on inside the Royals tonight…looks juicy…I was reminded by #4

    Here is my TT list:

  3. It’s always nice to have time with your thoughts. Great idea for a TT.

  4. Sorry you haven’t been feeling well. That really sucks!

  5. Glad your tooth is feeling better. There’s nothing worse than a toothache. Happy T13!

  6. Wash your hair tomorrow?? If I didnt do it every day, I would feel totally self conscience. Karma is a bitch, isnt it??? Im glad your tooth feels better:) Happy TT.

  7. You are as random as I am. Oh, don’t worry, I only shampoo once a week – at the beauty shop. My one luxury.

    I think Elvis is public domain in that he is “famous”, but then I’m probably wrong.

  8. I love random TTs sometimes! They can be quite enjoyable. Mine this week (scheduled to go up when it’s officially Thursday my time) is about procrastination, so maybe it’s similar to randomness?

  9. I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling well. Isn’t it strange, the random thoughts that float through your head late at night!

    Have a great TT!

  10. Haven’t read Lansdale, but I loved Jim Butcher’s story for Blood Lite–it’s very funny.
