Oh, plum, plum, plum... this is a pattern of yours. You ask for
advice, I tell you the truth, you freak out and become dismissive and
then, when the ball is lobbed back over the net, pretend that it is not
in your court. 

It was ever thus and I can't see how it will save you any money on
analysis. Indeed, it is something that will take, no doubt, many
sessions of the talking cure.  Still, I'm glad to see Sex Tips for Dogs
is going forward at S&S. Dogs and S&S can use them. 

As for writing about critical depression, I'd advise against it. It
may be light and breezy but it only exacerbates the problem; a problem
beyond the reach of even Problem Lady.  As I have alluded to above in
terms of productivity, the Well is also the enemy of purging oneself of
depression. It seems like it is not, like it is a supportive and warm
place, but that's an illusion. And while it may not, in and of itself,
instill depression, it cannot remove it, it can only extend it.

Indeed, for certain types of depression, it is probably the primary
fuel.

It's nice to hear that from leroy, whose weather reports are always
worth reading and probably one of the few things on the Well that, if
collected, would be worthy of a book and probably have a shot at being
a successful one at that.

If I *were* a writer, I'd probably not write here. But I'm not and
have no ambition to become one. I'm more a reader at random and jotter
of random notes. For that, the Well is perfect.

This would explain the quality of your published work.

Another topic usurped by boswell, who knows all and makes
damn sure we all know it, everywhere, all the time.

He's a bore. And a boor. Hell, from his last name, he might even be a 
Boer.

I think you should interview our dog Zoe for the dog book.

I love Zoe!  cmbegle, Prunella wanted Zoe for breakfast.  Luckily that never
happened.  I will interview Zoe immediately.


(thank you all kindly for beating boswell away with sticks.)

Oh no!!!

Cynthia, 

I feel I must ask -- Will the reputation of a certain Lab / Dobie mix
(who is mentioned briefly and not very flatteringly in your new book 
Advanced Sex Tips for Girls) be restored in your upcoming book on dogs?

With friends like yours, you don't need sticks.

But, hey, fetch!

Would it be possible to have a virtual reading of your book in this topic,
Ms. Heimel?  I mean exactly that -- would it be possible to upload a passage
or two for our entertainment and discussion?

That's fine for discussion if you feel like discussing, Mr. Van der Leun,
but I was asking for an author's selection, not a bookseller's nor yours.

It's the *publisher's* selection cher kingman. And is as good for
discussion as any other section of the book.

It's really, if you read it, got all the classic Heimel stuff.

Cynthia is it true that you are actually thousands of years old and
incalculably evil?

I am not incalculably evil.  I have toned down the evil bit in the last 500
years or so.  Now I think you'd describe me more as testy.

Bradburn, is it true that you are some kind of scary aryan stormtrooper?

I like a little Sturm und Drang, drizzled over toast. Cynthia, who are your
peers? Do you have any?

Peers?  I dunno.  The humor writers?  Roy Blount.  Merrill Markoe.  Dave
Barry (a far richer peer than me, especially now that his novel was made
into a movie.  Uh, David Sedaris?  You tell me Bradburn.
