Yeah. I don’t work at that school.

August 18th, 2011

The positive? Someone quoted me with regards to P.J. Haarsma’s author visit to our school years ago.

The negative? I don’t work at Desert Arroyo Middle School. I would have to Google it to find where it is.

I’m going to try and edit the Wikipedia page where it’s mentioned.

Oh, Wikipedia. Facepalm.

Notice how there’s a citation, even. It links to a fan site that isn’t even online anymore.

The quote is from my website article here.

P.J. Haarsma Visit

September 9th, 2008

The author visit by P. J. Haarsma was a lot of fun. He knows astronomy, technology, and how to get young adults interested in what he’s talking about.

Librarians, a warning – you’ll need to order more books. Mine are all checked out and on hold.

Author Signing – P. J. Haarsma

I got to hang out with P. J. Haarsma tonight at Barnes and Noble. His Virus on Orbis 1 is a fun read about kids running an entire spaceship until they are sold into slavery. Fans of Pendragon/Ender’s Game/Star Wars need to check it out. He’s really good friends with Frank Beddor (who was awesome when he visited our school) (and whose MMORPG just went into beta) and has a similar demeanor and personality.  
No, he is not my older brother. He decided to stand on a chair. I don’t know why.
