The Eighth Guardian

Ok, so this post is a shameless plug for my high school friend Meredith McCardle's first published book, The Eighth Guardian. It involves travel through time, so that kinda fits with a travel blog, right?
Anyways, I've had at least two other friends publish books, but this was the first time that I made it into the acknowledgements section. That means I'm published, doesn't it? I also received an advanced copy, signed by the author:
What does that inscription mean? Buy The Eighth Guardian (Annum Guard) to find out! Building 20, in case you don't know much about M.I.T., was a pretty awesome place.

In case you were wondering about the other two books by my friends (Lesley Kinzel and Michelle Au):

Ok, that last one isn't a book. It's the debut album of Demon Eye, the band that another high-school friend of mine plays guitar in. Be warned, it's full on metal, so get ready to Leave the Light.

Looking over this post, I feel both inspired by my friends' creative accomplishments and somehow a little more content with my own technical work, providing safe, secure and functional facilities that represent the U.S. government to the host nation and support our staff in the achievement of U.S. foreign policy objectives. Because we all have our strengths, don't we?
