Ya’ll Sure Do Like Lemony Snicket, Don’t You?

I mean, who doesn’t? I’m also a fan of Daniel Handler, the man through whom Lemony often deals with the public (interestingly enough, I’ve never seen the two of them in the same place at the same time…). Daniel also played accordian on a Magnetic Fields album that I like very much.

I don’t know if you are fans of the Magnetic Fields, or, more likely, the Series of Unfortunate Events books, but either way, our Lemony Snicket workshop this Saturday filled up in record time. And when I say “record time,” it should be noted that it took about a day, give or take twenty or so hours.

I’m sorry to say that, due to the nature of the workshop, and that its participants receive very nice, hardcover copies of Noisy Outlaws, Unfriendly Blobs, and Some Other Things That Aren’t as Scary, Maybe, Depending on How You Feel About Lost Lands, Stray Cellphones, Creatures from the Sky, Parents Who Disappear in Peru, a Man Named Lars Farf, and One Other Story We Couldn’t Quite Finish, So Maybe You Could Help Us Out, we cannot let anyone else in. We cannot take walk-ins, so please, for your sake as well as ours, don’t try it. Seeing the disappointment on your faces would be too much for us.

Don’t blame us. Blame Lemony, and his ability to tell a magnificent story such that people go crazy for a chance to communicate with him via satellite.

And fear not, my kittens, for our Spinter (Winter and Spring, it sounded better than Winting) Workshop Schedule will be released in mid-December! Write on!
