I actually did go in and do labels after all
I am a Dalek
I am not dead yet
I am really going to Russia
I am so proud of my book
I am sorry if you have taken a vow of silence but hope it is helping
I can't believe that's the first American Gods label in this whole blog
I could always build an ark
I do not have an honorary doctorate but am now holding out for a dukedom
I do the weird stuff.
I don't have a pet hamster to name
I don't know what all the cloak and dagger is for really
I don't think it's a record but yes my hand hurt
I feel like Harley Quinn every time I write that
I feel very old suddenly
I forgot to blog the family Buffython
I hate airlines
I have alluded to something secret
I hear the Other Father is also a floorwax AND a dessert topping
I hope his phone doesn't have a browser
I just noticed that Blogaway deleted all my Dead labels which means I will probably stop using Blogaway now
I made up the talking fish
I miss the days when I used to make sure that there would be at least one amusing or interesting label
I promise I'm not going to ask you to steal drugs
I want a posse of Travelling Librarians
I want to see pictures of Halloween* costumes in the LJ comments
I will name him George and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him...
I will not look into your soul and tell you what you need to know not even for ready money
I wish we were an old couple.
I would totally write that paper as a lark if I was still in college
I'm going to go baste the turkey and hide the kitchen knives.
I'm happy to hear that yes people do indeed read these labels

when the librarians come out of Congress it's all over
when this was good
where I am when I blog (this week)
where I was born
where I will be writing today
where are the elves when you need them
where's perry?
wherever there's trouble I'll be there on the double
whether authors read their own work for pleasure
whether or not Dave McKean is a pornographer
whether someone is forcing me to write this (you never know
whether there really is a mystery feud between geeks and wads like in the Onion article
while supplies last
who actually did kill Amanda Palmer?
who are these people?
why Alan Moore should be made Wizard of England
why Chip Kidd ought to have his own chat show
why I am crap at parties
why I am a Fairy Godfather
why I am not a saint
why I am not a sex symbol either
why I am not allowed to run away to Patagonia or somewhere equally as unlikely
why I must never wear a moustache not even for charity
why I sometimes would rather jump off a small cliff then get on another plane
why I still actually have a Newbery
why I was disappointed they cut Bacchus out of the Prince Caspian Movie
why are my lungs filled with glue?
why celery?
why churches?
why computers are bloody-minded tools of the devil
why don't I go and have breakfast
why don't I stay home and walk the dog?
why go abroad
why it can be dangerous to talk to authors
why people on TV wear make-up
why write?
why writing is no profession for a grown man
why yes I am listening to a single-artist playlist tonight
why yes that is a different utility belt

you can bring your book to a signing honest
you don't feed the trolls but still....
you get what everyone gets: one thing signed plus as many copies as you buy here
you have no idea how much I hate the combination of this computer and windows Vista
you know I'm starting to worry that the labels are all getting sort of normal these days
you may have already won....
you still can't plant ribes in Northern New York State
