Oh, hai. So that Trekkie cheated on you, eh?. What's that all about? May he suffer long and not prosper. Advice for Catherine, buy Apple and twitter (what's that, Catherine asks?) stocks. She gonna be rich. then again, if she rich, you won't write the book about her. I know, it's a ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff.

P.S.
chose midtown as a neighborhood since I don't live in your 'hood and that's the one that has similar 'hood here in NYC.

Nice. Most people have told Catherine to buy Google. Maybe she should buy all three (with Hungarian forints), and then the sequel will have her chasing crime stories with the aid of a solid-gold jetpack.

And good choice. Midtown Palo Alto is exactly like NYC.

But is the book any good? I don't care about the tweets or any of that, I want to know if it's a decent read.
