Enjoy Pauly D. now; avoid the rush! And participate, if you like, in the GBBMC (Grassroots Blogger Book Marketing Campaign...what? You didn't know that?), to promote Pauly's next book, to be released in May. This also happens to be shaping up into a fun, thought-provoking writing exercise planned for a solid week in April. Are you listening, zeldafitz? You want to do this. The rules are explained on Kevin's site, in this post, and I'll be sporting this spiffy badge in my sidebar for the next several weeks just to keep the information available and the "game" on your minds:Who is Paul Davidson? Well, until last year, I didn't know, either. And believe it or not, I only discovered him after he left a comment here. (How he stumbled across me, I cannot IMAGINE.) And not fully even then, because to comment here, he used a Blogger I.D. that didn't go anywhere--dead end. It wasn't until I saw him pop up in the comments on Dave's blog that I put two and two together. When Dave realized that this "Pauly D." was "the" Paul Davidson, he seemed close to peeing on himself (and he may have, for all I know--I'll leave it to him to reveal that intimate detail, or not), so I figured I'd best book it on over to Pauly D.'s place and check him out.
People, I have NEVER LOOKED BACK. OK, I've looked back, but, you know, fondly. His blog, "Words For My Enjoyment," is just a completely unique breath of fresh air with each new post. He's smart, funny, sharp-witted, and absolutely knows how to turn a word or phrase to its best advantage. I have a feeling that if they started a World Scrabble Tour, he would totally kick butt in the Celebrity Edition on cable. AND: Pauly D. knows things.
You can presently read Paul Davidson in the following places (click images to link there):
ONCE AND FOREVER:
COMING SOON, AND FOR ALL POSTERITY:
*I think it was the connection to Wired Magazine that put Dave's bladder-control in jeopardy; it was my discovery of the pieces in Mental Floss that had me squealing like a schoolgirl at my "brush with greatness." Alex and I luuuuvs us some Mental Floss--and this month's issue has 10 pages of Pauly! (Oh, and hey, Pauly? I totally knew about the marigold-egg yolk connection already. Yaaaay for me! And also? A fresh egg from a free-range chicken not only has a more vividly colored yolk than a grocery store egg, but the yolk "stands up" taller as well. Trivia-rific!)
