Let's backtrack here. I've been working on a book on and off for about eight years. It's kind of my secret passion project, and it's really too rude for public consumption. LOTS of cursing, humor that will offend most, etc., etc. Well, I picked up said project again in the last week or so, and I've been working on it non-stop. Then, in the past two days, I was running all kinds of weird Web searches without really thinking much on it until I was redirected to a creepy page that said something like, "Your searches have been flagged; please type in the following numbers to prove you're not a robot." Uh ... really? Am I on a list now for book research?
Granted, I suppose searching "Maserati," "top police cruiser speed," "Nobu in Malibu," "gun holsters," "GPS tracking," "Banana Republic sheath dresses," "how to spot a sociopath," and a bunch of music by Daft Punk and Julian Casablancas could indicate that you're planning to kidnap a celebrity from a highfalutin restaurant with the perfect playlist going on in the background.
Or ... Said search could be related to a really kick-*ss scene in my aforementioned book, which, by the way, is never getting published under my real name. ;-)
That is all.
