YOUR BAILOUT DOLLARS AT WORK...

Check out the bright lights in the middle.


Yes an un-named (because I don't want to be sued) recipient of bail-out funds is having a RETREAT here in Waikiki...
OVERHEARD as we walked by the live band and celebration.

"DON'T BE ASHAMED TO BE HERE! YOU DESERVE IT. YOU ARE THE CREAM OF THE CROP..."

My husband and I looked at each other and I was compelled to take a photo with my iphone.

Yes, it IS stranger than fiction.

There's a book in here somewhere...

Anyone can sue you for any reason, but these people would have no case; you'd only be stating a fact by naming them.

yeah but...
I will say at least it's giving business to the hotels.
There is that...

I'm in the middle of rewrites and it's causing me a great hardship. Not financially but... where do I submit my request for a bailout?

ORION said...

Bail out for writers.

There is a book in there!
And I've no doubt years from now someone will be publishing it :)

These kinds of stories make me sick. If only they could see the face of poverty, or better yet, feel it themselves, they wouldn't be so casual.

Just swung by to say I have just finished reading "Lottery" and loved it. Absolutely and completely, there wasn't a thing I didn't like in it. I was very impressed in how authentic you were able to make Perry's voice. It was entirely believable. Very well done you!

ARGH! That's terrific. Cream of the crop? Yeah, the stinkweek crop.

Ah yes, but cream curdles when it gets too hot.
