I’m writing a book. I’ve got the page numbers done.

  1. Lol. Too funny.

    Although it might be a good idea. Writing is hard, but I can number pages like a pro……well, at least I know how to put a footer in Word. Word does the actual numbering.

  2. Some days, any kind of progress is a good thing.

  3. I always say that it isn’t asking too much for friends and acquaintances to give me a positive reaction to my books—at the very worst they could muster, “Nice pagination.”

  4. Braggart.

  5. My page numbers are automatic.

    I have, however, said, “I got some work done on my new book. I put the title on the title page.” And been completely serious.

  6. I always like Steven Wright’s dry wit. He told a joke that stuck with me about how a friend sent him a post card with a picture of the Earth on it. In the body they had written “Wish you were here”

    Now with smartphone apps, like postagram, and some clip art from NASA, I can now do the same.

    • He also once said — “It’s a small world, but I wouldn’t want to paint it.”

    • One Steven Wright joke I’ve remembered for years is:

      “No matter what the temperature in the room is, it’s always room temperature.”

    • Mine has always been “I was playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and three people died.”

      I said that to a co-worker of mine once and she believed it was true. She went totally white and just about fainted. So that joke is close to my heart. 🙂

      Although I’ve always liked the Jewish cowboy joke as well. 😉

  7. Great now I’ve just spent %^$* minutes watching Steven Wright clips on YouTube. And my eBooks don’t even have page numbers!!!
