It has recently come to my attention that I have been "tuckerized" as a significant character in Lois McMaster Bujold's new book, The Hallowed Hunt, as the warrior-poet Jokol Skullsplitter! Woo-hoo! Ahem. Grr. Sigh. And so has my pet bear, Ted, who in the book is named Fafa. Fafa! Yes! And now cute girls will come over and feed you honey! Yes! Um. I don't think it works that way, Teddy. Yes! And they will tuck you in and tell you stories and comb your fur longingly! Yes! Ummm... this is getting a little disturbing, bear. Grrrrr. Okay okay. They might. I guess it could happen. Okay? Okay? Grrr. Okay. Go to sleep, bear. Grrr. Okay.
