End of year questions...
Will our Christmas tree make it to Epiphany (January 6)? It's looking dry.
When will it stop being so hot?
Is the tiny mouse now living in our guinea pig cage able to have relations with the guinea pig? They seem very close.
Will our cat make it through the coming year? She is very thin just now.
How many episodes of X-files can I watch before I've had enough?
What happened to Elaine and did she ever get a new job, boyfriend, better neighbours or a better good friend? And should I care? No, guess not.
Will my friend Ruth (please don't use that word 'ruthless') ever learn to attach the attachments each week?
Will I ever find a way to love the Codfish?
Will I keep driving two cars?
Will we ever find Asher's school jacket or do I buy him another one?
What will Cape Reinga be like? We get there next week.
When will I be satisfied with something I write?
When when when will Nick Earls write another cool adult's novel? I'm desperate.
And when will I write a cool adult's novel *snort*
And and and I have so many questions but I'm going to bed now! What are your burning questions tonight?

one question answered
Many end of year questions ... I wish I could help out with more, but I can at least answer one. My next adult novel will be published in Australia and New Zealand in July 09. I hope Random House NZ will be getting it across the ditch promptly. It'll be called The True Story of Butterfish. I've also written this one as a play (in parallel, not as an adaptation), and the play will premiere at the Powerhouse in Brisbane in September.

On other matters, you may not ever easily love the Codfish, but you will come to terms with it, and you will find Asher's school jacket, but shortly after you've bought him another one. And the mouse and the guinea pig realise they can only be friends, but don't think there aren't moments when other thoughts mightn't cross their minds.

Re: one question answered
OMG I'm thinking how did you get here... you know, I crossed the ditch to see Perfect Skin...

But oh joy of joys a new novel, I can't wait! I'm so happy. But July, aaaaah, I'll have to see it as a birthday present *g*
How come the Powerhouse, is that different from the Roundhouse? The fun we had finding that in the dark after the bus dropped us off in that Nazi-style bus run at the bottom of a deserted university! And that was after the ceiling almost fell on me in the hotel lobby while phoning for a taxi and then taxis wouldn't come because there was a big game at Suncorp! I still love Brisbane though. Can't wait to go again. Maybe September...

Thanks for the predictions.
FYI, the Codfish is a priest. And I will maybe one day come to terms with him/it but not necessarily shortly. He can't find it in his heart to come to terms with me yet either.
Someone loaned us a spare school jacket - they cost $125. I was thinking of buying Asher a new one... maybe I won't now.
And as for this
And the mouse and the guinea pig realise they can only be friends, but don't think there aren't moments when other thoughts mightn't cross their minds
Well, we were wondering. But it's a very slim little mouse. I guess they'll just be friends. The rabbit is probably jealous.

And you... well, since you're still writing books for us grown ups, you can still be my hero.

I love the idea of questions instead of answers - I shall try to do this!!
Don't forget to post some of the 'answers' as they become available!! Especially Asher's jacket...

I always have so many burning questions. Some of them I can't really ask here but my head is brimming with them all the time. I wish I could answer more!! Lucky for me Nick Earls seems to have developed some predictive powers OMG!

Asher's jacket is probably happily in the home of some previously jacketless hoodlum at his school whose slack and immoral parents never look inside the item to see the carefully sewn nametags... it was such a warm, new, roomy, cosy jacket, too. We all liked it, fresh and bright blue in his school colours *sigh* I really must move on LOL!

True, there is always hope. And winter is a long way away. I think I have to buy him a school blazer this year and that'll be enough expense for him!

OMG it was just so exciting! I can't think how he got here except perhaps eliper who runs a website of him so she knows him... well, duh, yeah, that'd help, huh. Anyway, I'm kind of embarrassed but completely fannishly overwhelmed at the same time! I have all his books in a row on their own shelf *g* So maybe I need to go back to that meme, maybe I do still have a fandom - all of my own! And there's a BOOK COMING - whee!
