It's because Fell has been MIA for almost 3 weeks due to work and other commitments and SE's been busy too.  I would post it but usually I wait until those above me ask since it's not my job to post articles.

I'll chat with SE about it now.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

HEY!  There's a review of "Lady in the Water" ready to be blurbed.  Post it as soon as you want.

Thanks.

One thing though.  Can you please stop putting the title in caps, let less work for the editors the faster the article can get published and we don't do the cap thing.

Thanks a bunch.  We italicize titles, well Fell does because he's not as lazy, but the article title is always normal.

I failed to get Geek Girl done, again.  But on the upside, I wrote to reviews that I just submitted.  The one for Kitty should probably go up before the other one, as that's a more recent release and a book that was given to me to review.  

I'm hoping to get a geek girl up in the next couple of days to go up whenever there's room.  I'm still shooting for getting back to my regular friday bi-weekly thing, but life's been nuts of late.
Hold fast to dreams, for when dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.  Hold fast to dreams, for when dreams go, life is a barren field frozen with snow.  -Langston Hughes

I don't normally do this, but here's the (tentative) schedule for the next two weeks, just so people know what I'm expecting.

M July 24: The Knight
Tu July 25: Collection of short things that have been sitting in the waiting file for months
W July 26: Kitty Goes to Washington
Th July 27: Dare we hope for a new TW(i)G article?
F July 28: Nerdery 39

M July 31: Arabat
Tu Aug 1: Page 33 # 16
W Aug 2:
Th Aug 3:
F Aug 4: Geek Girl #16

Note that the schedule is incredibly fluid. Things change every time I get new information. For example, I usually get notified about movie reviews a day or two before they run. As soon as I learn about them, I try to insert them to run as soon as appropriate (depending on movie release date, agreements with the marketers if appropriate, and diversity of material). This schedule includes three book reviews. So I spread them out

The main thing I'm playing with right now is Fish telling me she has a GG column coming in soon (see prev. post) whereas I have no information about the date a new Nerdery will show up. Since we have run any of these columns for a long time, I just may swap projected weeks and do P33 and GG this week. This would put the material I'm confident in having earlier so others have more time. (esp since I know I can have a P33 in tomorrow, but I'm not sure about the TW(i)G one). 42, are you comfortable with this swap?

Well, I've started writing new nerdery articles.

I'm hoping to get caught up on a lot of things since I have today free to do things because of the holiday.

So the question is, will Geek Girl or Nerdery get to me first? That will determine what I run this week. Though maybe I'll just shove P33 in tomorrow anyway, since I'm not of necessity linked to Geek Girl.
