Number one I'm thrilled - THRILLED - that there are rumors about me. I mean, this means someone is talking about me and that there is presumably something interesting to say. This is big for me, really big.
I'm considering putting a small dog in my purse and seeing if the papparazzi will follow me around.
If that happens I'll learn how to spell "papparazzi".
So by all means please continue talking about me, I'm flattered beyond belief.
(For the record, I know no one is talking about me anymore but humor me.)
Now let me clear up these rumors.
Rumor #1: Melanie is going back to the U.S.
Nope, we're staying in China at least until Grant finishes 6th grade and he's in 2nd grade now. Most likely we'll stay until both kids finish high school.
Rumor #2: Melanie is going to Africa.
I'm not sure where this one came from. I think I said once that I want to go to Africa and I do but I meant to visit.
Rumor #3: Melanie is going to work for Adobe.
Although scores of Sun employees, especially those from the G11n department, have gone to Adobe I don't plan to.
Rumor #4: Melanie is dating George Clooney.
Not true, but you can see where the confusion is coming from.
