Welcome to the Saruyama Blog, intermittent and generally off topic. Occasionally you might see some trees...and weird ones at that.

Name in print...

A courier just brought me a pre-printing copy of the forthcoming book. A few final changes are possible but this is pretty much it.

I fought to get the cheesy scissors motif removed but apparently my diva like hissy fit didnt carry any weight..."But I am the author I tell you...the author! Does that mean nothing?"

There is still some Americanising to be done, which means messing up the spelling...seriously, you need more vowels and obscure spelling people. I asked if the American version will also have laminated, cheeseburger proof pages but the budget wouldn't stretch that far.*

I will be reading it on the Eurostar over to Paris this afternoon. Hope there aren't too many hideous errors.

* My American friends and readers should realise that this is probably a joke **

There are some good trees in there. None of them mine obviously. Many thanks to the Mirai master.

Onwards and upwards people....



** Seriously, if there is any confusion or misunderstanding of irony/my sense of humour/humor. It was a joke. I did not ask for cheeseburger proof pages...if anything, they would need to withstand a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich wit extra cheese from Tony Lukes at 39 Oregon St. Philadelphia. Those were the days...

    1. Nobody likes a trouble maker theo, stop asking difficult questions :)

  4. Oh pooh on the effing Americanising. That's just silly.

  5. So...About the Philly Cheese Steak...did you actually eat that thing? We have FAR BETTER cuisine that that in Philly and out & about in the burbs!

  6. Look forward to seeing finished result boss man
