i counted up my children on my profile page. it’s always good to keep track of family. it turns out that yes, i have the two sons–joseph presser and eastman presser–that i recall from before i even had facebook.
i have acquired five daughters. they’re all adorable. they’re right there on my profile page. i also have three new sons. this was no miracle of medicine.
i also have a sister. well, two. casey leiber was someone i have known since i was twenty five and she was a wee baby. i’m also sisters with kim price (i wonder if this means she’ll let me borrow a pretty dress for next saturday night?) in any event, that’s the magic of facebook is the playing around with relationships.
the other surprise i discovered as i looked at my profile page was that i have a job! it’s so cool! we have over eight percent unemployment the last that i checked and it’s a pretty great feeling to know i have a job! it’s at round table books in winnetka. they have a facebook page and they added me as an employee.
if i’m not going to work at a book store, i might try making money another way. by writing a book. but first i have to make friends with james michener. at least this is what my facebook friend #308 james crumley tells me. . .
james has writtten seven novels, including the above mentioned “God bless this kitchen” — he’s owned two publishing businesses and was a single father to his son. he’s working on a new piece and i can’t wait to read it!

Fun article! I am battling a debilitating disease called mitochondria myopathy. I don’t get out much so Facebook keeps me connected. I have also found that keeping a sense of humor is vital. Thanks for helping with that!

Hilariously delightful. I find myself laughing out loud (in which case, my neighbors must wonder what I do alone, by myself, in my apartment, reading blogs and laughing hysterically). Thank you so much for sharing. LOVE the Chef Tatoo! Love!
And yes, you never know what might be around the corner:

I was wondering if I could get the titles of the other 6 novels written by James Crumley?
Thank you in advance
