Also, over the weekend, I had a dream that my coworker's mom died, and today I found out she died on Saturday. I'd heard she was kind of on the way out, but the dream still weirded me out.
Anyway. So, the books in the April Fools fake novel plot-stealing prank are: Clan of the Cave Bear, Harry Potter, Alanna: The First Adventure, Eragon, and American Gods. Combine them all, add my characters, and you get something bizarre and ridiculous. That fake plotline still cracks me up.
