That’s right, I’m going META!  Bringing a bookface meme-thingie offsite to my own space!  Muahahah!  Umm.  Anyway:


2010 The Invitation Guidelines: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen authors (poets included) who’ve influenced you and that will always stick with you, plus one sandwich. List the first fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Just pick a sandwich you like. It’s not a big deal; it’s just a damn sandwich, fool! Tag at least fifteen friends, including me, because I’m interested in seeing what authors my friends choose, and very mildly interested in what sandwich you picked. (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, cast your fifteen picks plus sandwich, and tag people in the note).

In no particular order:

  1. Douglas Adams
  2. Arthur C. Clarke
  3. Ray Bradbury
  4. William Gibson
  5. Berkeley Breathed
  6. Roger Zelazny
  7. John Varley
  8. David Sedaris
  9. Larry Niven
  10. Frederik Pohl
  11. Piers Anthony (shuddup, I know)
  12. David Brin
  13. Isaac Asimov
  14. Robert A. Heinlein
  15. Theodore Sturgeon

I made a delightful sandwich earlier tonight, in fact.  It was a grilled panini-like thing with Grey Poupon mild and creamy mustard, Pancetta, granny smith apple, and shredded Cracker Barrel extra-sharp white cheddar.


Also, I lied yesterday.  There’s no big “end of the NaBloPo month” post coming.  We both knew it was going to end this way, don’t cry.
