I Don’t Know

I don’t know how much e-books should cost.  I’ve read arguments for sliding-scale prices.  I know lots of people don’t want to pay over a certain price.  I don’t have an answer.

I don’t know whether Macmillan’s agency agreement would be better for authors and readers than some other approach.

I don’t know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop.

I don’t know whether people are going to love Snow Queen.

I don’t know where I get my ideas.

I don’t know when I’ll be able to post the cover art to Red Hood’s Revenge [B&N | Mysterious Galaxy | Amazon].

I don’t know how long I have before my son stops running up to hug me when I come home from work.

I don’t know if my home has adequate weaponry to protect my family against the zombie uprising.

I don’t know whether I should set Snow Queen revisions aside for a week so I can write up and pitch a new series to DAW.

I don’t know why “Single Ladies” won a Grammy.  (But I think it had something to do with the Chipmunks movie.)

I don’t know why I’m so incredibly bad with names and faces.

I don’t know how Randall Munroe does it.

I don’t know how single parents balance work, kids, and sanity.

I don’t know why the catfish in our aquarium keep dying.

I don’t know why religion is ever worth killing for.

I don’t know if I should create a fan page on Facebook.

I don’t know whether an anime-style Snoopy fighting cat-ninjas would be awesome or terrifying.  ETA: socchan brings the awesome here.

I don’t know where this post came from.  I guess I just thought the Internet would be a slightly better place if people were willing to admit they didn’t know things from time to time.

We got these from Preuss in Lansing, which is supposed to be one of the best pet stores around.

Preuss is a good place. It's not the pet stores so much as the suppliers. A lot of the specialty places breed their own or buy from fish freaks who breed or capture them. A lot of times the pet stores a crap shoot because they get the fish and dump them all in the same tanks and sell them before any illnesses appear. (They're probably not doing that at Preuss.) You do sometimes get healthy fish that way, though. My Dad had some goldfish from Meijer, I think, that must have lived at least ten years. And goldfish are kind of tricky to keep. My theory is that they thrive with neglect. The tank was always full of algae, unheated, unaerated, never fussed with, and the fish grew and grew.

We never kept catfish. The little catfish are awfully cute.
