This One Is Mine, a new novel by Maria Semple

A good friend and former writing mentor of mine, Maria Semple (visit her website here), has just published her first novel! Join me in congratulating her on her success, and pick up a copy of the book (having read an earlier draft, which I helped her revise, I can promise it will not disappoint.) Maria was a writer on Arrested Development when I met her, and this is her first foray into novel writing. I think I speak for everyone when I say I hope it's not her last!

Buy the book at

Hope you enjoy! Congrats, Maria!

The Assistant

Whilst I sit by and watch my craft
Be writ, be made, be dyed and cast

I sit outside the circle and
Wish just for once they’d let me in.

Instead, nonesuch, I’ll bide my time,
‘til one day this will sure be mine.

But times I find it’s hard to wait…
I idle by, to hope for fate

As if one has some grand control
Of how the gods my life they dole.

How foolish I to think such things…
I wait, instead, while curtains cling.

But all import to keep in sight
That mine someday the circle might

Then I’ll peek out and wish me free
To look again within and dream

Old People at the airport

I just remembered what it was like to genuinely laugh. Man, this video has it all.
