Missing Bloggers and Evil Babies

Yes, I went AWOL for a few days. Here are my excuses:

1. It was too hot in New York. I mean miserably, painfully hot.

2. Because it was so hot, nothing very interesting was happening. (I don't know why, but these things seem to go together. Have you noticed?)

3. I'm just about to finish a new book! It's not Kiki 3 (that's next), but it's very creepy and cool. (Don't worry, Kiki 3 is just around the corner.)

But while I was gone, I did happen to find the following pictures at

Hmm. There seems to be something strange about the Zižkov television tower in Prague. Let's take a closer look, shall we?

OMG! There are evil BABIES crawling all over the building!

And some of them have no faces! Eeeeeeeeek!

They're the work of Czech sculptor David Černý.

Actually, interesting things DO happen in the heat. In Austin, TX, it's ALWAYS hot, and very interesting things still happen.....

That...goes right next to Miranda Cosgrove swimming in a giant coffee cup and the disgusting green tea frappichino I had yesterday (it tasted like candied oranges).

Wow. What kind of person uses their wonderful artistic talents to create silver babies with no faces climbing up a TV tower? I soooooo want to meet them!!!!!

Wait - you're almost done with a new book? Is it still for teens, or is it going to be for adults? What's it gonna be about? Will it still take place in New York? Oops. You're probably not allowed to say, are you? Ahhhhhhh! I must know!!!

That is freaky. And I wouldn't know about heat and low activity. Around here, except for parades, it's just general low activity. Or, in the middle of negative thirty weather, no activity.

Another Random comment - sorry about this - but I thought I'd let you know that my daughter is gathering as one of the Irregulars for BookPeople's Kiki Strike camp this week - we dropped her off this AM, equipped with several hats (for costume/stealth/trailing training) a sack lunch, some water and sunscreen - they're apparently going to be getting some drama out of this week. I can't wait to hear her take on the day.

Heat is worse when you are active. and humidity doesn't help. Fortunately swimming in dammed up lakes does:)

and right now i'd be thrilled with NYC temps

Be glad it's hot. It's been raining off-and-on ever since it stopped sleeting months ago here.

Anonymous: That's true. But yours is a dry heat. ;)

Anonymous #3: Yes, it's for teens. Adults bore me. Kidding! I'll write a little post about it soon. Only half of the story takes place in NY.

Chris: Thanks so much for reminding me!

Dangerous: Soon all will be revealed.
