It's Not Delphi, But It'll Do

Good news. The Oracle in Brooklyn is up and running again. It's one of those mysterious cultural touchstones that's so much fun to find. And (in a sing-song voice) I know who's behind it, I know who's behind it, nyah-nyah ...

oh

So apparently does everybody else.
Dang.

Regarding the hot men of Children's Literature, I humbly submit a few additions:

Jon Sciezka
Lane Smith
David Sabuda

The first time I met Lane Smith, I went knock-kneed. The second time (show off!) I managed to keep it together to have a proper conversation.

Oh, and on another topic unrelated to your most recent post, here is a fantasy-writing link you might enjoy.

jon scieszka better not ever get a h.m.o.c.l. shout out--he's a jerkface. ...writes good stuff for kids. but so jerky in spirit that he's so NOT hot.

lane smith on the other hand...
(plus j.scieszka's stuff wouldn't be known at all were it not for l.smith's superior pictures.)

I happen to like Scieszka's work, but he'll never actually make it as a HMOCL. It's his facial hair. Last time I saw him he was sporting a bizarre little pseudo-goatee. Some people dig 'em, but I'm more a fan of the full-blown Chekov facial hair rather than the random smatterings. Lane Smith and David Sabuda however....

Oh well! When I met Sciezka, he was clean-shaven and charming.
