09:57 am: Balticon

We will be at Balticon on Sat. I have a couple of panels.

My mom, after reading my most recent chapter, commented: “I don’t think in the history of the world anyone’s ever written a scene where someone bathed a yeti.”

She may be right.

I think Mike Baron might have beaten it to you in the pages of his Badger comic book... but it does remain pretty rare.

LOL

Nice to know someone else out there is looking out for Yeti cleanliness. (Was his Yeti also Odin in disguise? Are there Odin-bathing scenes? Inquiring minds want to know. ;-P )

Naw, his Yeti was an old Tibetan lama's bodyguard and sidekick who decided he liked modern amenities and shaved most of his body hair to 'blend in', not Odin in disguise.

Now, Douglas Adams didn't have any Odin-bathing scenes, but he did have his own version of the Odinsleep, with his Odin taking decade or longer naps and having a bit of a thing for high-quality linen sheets. One of the Dirk Gently books, don't recall the title off the top of my head.

I think it was the first one. Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul. I remember being rather amused. The thing I liked best in that book had to do with penguins and an refrigerator, I think.

Incidentally, my yeti isn't really Odin either, the guy is also impersonating Odin...no sheets in this version...just the main character trying to come up with an excuse to talk with the yeti without his boss hearing. ;-)
