'1Toilet' plan to let teachers and students mingle freely

STRUMPDATE

Sorry about the lack of blogging, but I had a busy day yesterday, going up to New York so I could pay $26,153.76 in miscellaneous hotel taxes and also join Ridley for the first bookstore event for our new Starcatchers book Peter and the Sword of Mercy, which officially comes out today. Joining us, much to our happiness, was the great Jim Dale, who read a couple of excerpts from the book. That man is amazing. He could read the nutrition information on a cereal box and make it entertaining. He'll also be joining us at another New York event at Symphony Space at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 25., which is when Ridley and I officially kick off our nationwide Strumpeting and Sleep Deprivation Tour.
