Gentle Reader, some ketchup before the weekend. I know I have been remiss in my extra-special fun blogging. You are expecting Character Profiles. I will do more, I promise! They just take a little while to prep and now is not the time for such blogging. Let me just get through November. “I have deviants to see and a novel to finish.” (Guess the quote, guess the quote! It’s one of my favorite movies and one of my favorite actresses -wearing the cutest suit – which should tell you a whole lot about my personality.)
I am teaching this Sunday in SF at Books Inc Opera Plaza Wordplay Class. So far, only 6 students, but I have fun and games planned. Literally, for I will reveal all the tricks behind writing comedy. Then I will reveal all the secrets of publishing. OK, all the ones I know. And finally, answer any questions asked of me as honestly as possible. There could be lives lost. The chaos, the chaos. Oh and I am wearing a very cute pair of shoes. Shawa, was there any doubt?
In honor of Halloween The Book Whisperer asks some of us what story frightened us the most. It’s a fun blog and I enjoyed reading everyone else’s picks.

Your Tisane of Smart:
Sampled Vintage Tea Leaf’s Casablanca. This one is a large leaf black with a green (or possibly oolong) mixed in. It smelled rather herby. so I was quite suspicious. Tea was a green yellow brown color, not unlike dishwater and had a faint lemon spell to it. It brewed weak, but was a pleasant color once whole milk was added. The tase was very green, undertones of black, with a non-acidic lemon finish. (Perhaps from verbena or lemon grass or lemon oil?) It wasn’t as herby as I had feared and seemed refreshing even in a hot form. However, this one wasn’t particularly to my taste.
