Weird But True

I am reading a novel called L.A. Mental by Neil McMahon.  To make a long synopsis shorter, it is about a group of film makers in Hollywood experimenting with brain infusion of nanoparticles and mind control using quantum physics.  Really, I thought it was going to be another murder mystery/thriller, but have I ever changed my mind.  This is out of my comfort zone and area of knowledge.  As we said in the 60's "Far Out."

Anyhow, I digress...I was reading until about midnight last night.  Then I turned of my lights and listened to my Walkman MP3 player.  I fell asleep listening and woke up about 2 AM and turned off the music and when I turned over to put the player and earbuds into the nightstand drawer, there was my novel GLOWING IN THE DARK.  Well, that woke me completely up and I laid there humming the theme from "The Twilight Zone."  I didn't know if I even wanted to go back to sleep.  This morning I checked out the cover of the book.  The jacket paper is obviously treated with the same type of stuff that makes glo-stiks glow.

I am finishing that novel today, in the daylight and returning it to the library before their close-of-business.  This was just too weird!

Peace, (maybe later on)

That was a little freaky, I guess.

Jimmie, seems I recall reading a recent article about book covers that glow in the dark after first being exposed to the light. But when it happens without you having known in advance was very weird.
